Beauty | What I Have On My Festive Face

I'm totally overdoing the amount of times I can get the word 'festive' into a blog post title but yahno it's only Christmas once a year so I'm going to bloody well go for it!... I've found myself rocking this glittery eye & bronzey faced makeup look quite a lot over the festive season. It's a really versatile look which can easily take you from day to night depending how much glitz you're adding. Even better, this is pretty much all drugstore so it's not going to set you back a small fortune.

For my base I'll use the Bourjous Healthy Mix foundation in the shade Light Vanilla, this is an absolute winner for me along with many others - the product is lightweight, dewy & gives a fab amount of coverage. To conceal any bags or blemishes I've been favouring the ever popular Collection Lasting Perfection concealer. This is an absolute cult beauty product & it's easy to see why! The formula is thick, creamy & covers any insecurities like a dream. An oldie but a goodie for adding definition to the face is with the Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush 8 Contour Palette in the shade Golden Sugar - I've had this for such a long time, but have only recently fallen back in love with it, not that I ever fell out of love with it, it was just one of those products that unfortunately got pushed towards to back of the queue. This palette has everything you could ever possibly need though to highlight and contour your face, it's an absolute gem of a product. To set everything I dust over Soap and Glorys One Heck Of A Blot, I'm touching pan with this one at the moment (Waaahh!) I've gotten so much use out of it & I adore how it mattifys and evens my complexion. For eyes I've been loving the Tanya Burr Hollywood Palette, especially shades bookworm & Enchantment, two gorgeous festive golden toned browns - I've been popping these under my lower lash line as I feel it gives my eyes much more of a glowing impact. I've been going without liner, however I have been packing on loads of the Maybelline Volume Express Colossal mascara. This has been a makeup staple of mine over the last few months or so, it's a brilliant little drugstore product that lifts and holds a curl all day. To finish the eyes, I'll define my brows with Benefits Browzings. I've recently started using this again after my Sleek Eyebrow Pencil ran out & if I'm totally honest, I prefer the cheaper alternative, but needs must, yahno! Finally to balance out my face I've been using the Maybelline 24 Hour Super Stay Lipstick in shade Soft Taupe - it's neutral enough to wear during the day however because it's a liquid lipstick it gives the precise definition that an evening look requires.

All in all, I absolutely love these makeup products and how they transform my face into one of half decency. Like I say, I'm a complete tight arse when it comes to buying makeup products, so if you're on a tight budget like me, I'm sure you'll absolutely love these. If you've tried any of these I'd love to know what you think? Is there any similar higher end products you could suggest at all to achieve a similar look? 

Thanks once again for following my #Blogmas series, I'm so chuffed that I've done so well with it. Lots of love | Claire.x
