earrings: Topshop, Necklace: Happiness Boutique*
Once again it has been a little while since I last posted, the last time I sat down to blog it was November and then apparently I blinked and suddenly it's very much December! Things have been super busy lately, work gets hectic at this time of year and I'm still working (badly) on being organised and scheduling blog posts.
Anyway, since we are firmly heading towards Christmas now I thought I'd better get going with the festive themed posts I have planned. This week I have two different Christmas party looks to share with you, and the first is the smokey nude look - basically dark eyes and neutral lips.
To be honest, this look is something that I wouldn't rule out for any day - I love a nude lip and smokey eye so this is pretty much ideal for any occasion, not just the Christmas parties!
Being the ditz that I am (to put it really politely), I forgot to include Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow in the photo - so just know that it is there, providing some much needed contour and highlighting.
For the eyes I used my trusty Maybelline The Nudes palette, which has 12 bronze and brown shades perfect for experimenting with different smokey looks. I used a couple of these shades on my eyelids and also underneath my bottom lashes too. Bourjois Twist Up the Volume mascara is good for giving your lashes a good coat of black colour, and it leaves them looking both longer and thicker. I also love using it on my bottom lashes, I sometimes have to use a different one on them depending on the wand but this one is great for both.
My nude lipstick of choice for this look is Charlotte Tilbury in Nude Kate, which is a super flattering shade that I find works best when applied with a little brush or even your fingers.
Also, nothing sets off a a simple party look like the right accessories - I got to pick this beautiful necklace from Happiness Boutique*, and love how it just sets the whole look perfectly.
My next post will be a more dramatic and colourful party look so look out for that!
What look do you go for at Christmas? xx
