Festive Make-Up Edit

Including three lip options, because one-size doesn't really fit all...

It's winter, we're all paler than pale, so it's back to my pasty NARS Sheer Glow in Siberia. It's high coverage, natural satin finish and matches my neck – can't go wrong really. In the festivities, with all the chocolate, cheese, mince pies, crisps, late nights and everything in-between, your skin might not be on your side. So, that's when I whip out the big guns with Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin in Enhancer in SX01 to banish every last little blemish and dark circle, the rest of the fam will never know I was up until 3am. Next it's Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone and the Beach Tint in Guava. These products are so natural on the skin, adding a beautiful glow and pop of colour, perfect for the time of year.

A lovely birthday gift from my bestie is the The Nubian Eyeshadow Palette, so it'd be rude not to experiment with this in the festivities. It's a gorgeous mix of warm shades, both mattes and shimmers with a velvet buttery texture. It's a great portable size meaning there's room for a simple one shadow look or opting for all the blending of at least three. Go crazy, it's Christmas! Next is LancĂ´me Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara. Hands down this is my holy grail mascara, it doesn't clump, holds a curl and packs a punch. Hurrah, success at last. For brows, I've been keeping it simple with my trustee Eyeko Brow Gel, and old classic Soap and Glory Archery Pencil.

Option 1: MAC Lady Danger. A personal favourite. A rich orange red really brings out the blue of my eyes and compliments my pasty complexion; definitely my Christmas day pick.

Option 2: Rimmel Kate 111. If you're not into the orange reds, this shade leans on the bluer side, which flatters the whites of your teeth and still compliments my neutral skin tone.

Option 3: New Look Lip Tint in Pink. Not feeling so bold or too lazy to top up throughout the day (I feel u gal), lip tints are the dream. Unfortunately, I have a feeling New Look have discontinued their lip tints, which is a damn shame as they're so moisturising and well pigmented, but any other similar formula is great for a simple satin splash of colour, without the high maintenance.

What are your make-up picks for the festive season?
