It's December beauty favourites time.....I cant quite believe that December and Christmas is over, it went far to quickly for my liking and I'm actually super sad about it, I think I'm going to have to cling on the gold smokey eyes, red lips and glittery nails for a bit longer though he he. Anywhoo onto what I've been loving this month beauty wise!
My first favourite this month is my Urban Decay Naked Palette. I've had my Naked Palette for years, it was one of the very first high end palettes I ever owned and I'm still in absolute love with it years later. Throughout December I found myself doing the same routine everyday, I pop Half Baked on the lid, Smog on the outside corners and then a mix of Naked and Buck through the crease to blend everything out and then tadah... I have a gorgeous gold smokey eye!
Next is my new favourite base combo, I picked up the Collection Illuminating Touch Foundation a while back on a complete whim and I absolutely love it, it just leaves my skin completely evened out, dewy and radiant and isn't heavy or cakey in the slightest. Then for my dreaded dark under eyes I've been using my Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer, this is my second tube of this wonderful stuff and I'm so happy I repurchased it again, the formula is so light weight yet hydrating and creamy at the same time, it blends out a dream and most importantly it works wonders at concealing my under eye area, arhhh I love this stuff!
For nails this month I have embraced all things Christmas and have been loving Barry M's Glitter Gelly in Sparkling Ruby which is a gorgeous red glitter shade that has a subtle golden shimmer effect to it, and for my accent nails I dug out my Ciate nail polish in Sand Dune which is a stunning true gold shade that wears really well. This little duo kept me going through the festive season and I'm still wearing them now because I love them so much.
For lips this month I've been loving two lipsticks in particular, firstly Rimmel's Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss in the shade 01 because it's such a great Christmassy Red and I wore it over the entire festive period and then on an everyday basis I've been loving my MAC Viva Glam lipstick because it so comfortable and easy to wear and is the perfect shade of nude that suits my complexion. As well as the two lippies I've been obsessed with the Lush Santa's Lip Scrub (review here), I've nearly used half the little pot up because it works are treat at gently exfoliating my lips and leaves them so soft and perfectly prepped ready for when I apply my lippies, plus it smells and tastes incredible which is another reason why I use it so often.
My last beauty favourite this month ( I know theres been so many he he) is the Soap & Glory Hand Food hand cream, my hands always suffer in the Autumn/Winter months and Hand Food is always my saviour, I have a large bottle on my bedside table and the mini bottle always stays in my handbag for on the go.
What have you been loving this month beaut's?? I'd love to know.
