makeup that makes me feel glam

Are you guys having a good December so far? How's your shopping list going? Thank goodness for online shopping that's all I have to say! So with all the festive spirit in the air, this is the season when we can pull out that extra glitz and glam with our makeup. Every girl wants that extra sparkle this time of year right? I love any excuse to get dolled up for the party season. Here are some of my favourite products that always make me feel that little bit more done up. Amazing foundation - check, red lip - check, gorgeous highlighter - check, read on for more!


A long lasting and glowy base is a must for that extra wow factor when you're out at those Christmas events. I reach for my Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation. This beaut never lets me down, 2 pumps and it glides on my skin effortless, covers uneven skin tone and leaves my skin with a healthy and warm finish. It's also SPF free so perfect for all those festive photos, (you can read my full review here.)


Who doesn't want that extra sparkle around their eyes this time of year, you never know who you might bump into ;) I love using this essential eye palette from NARS - 6 great shades including a neutral base, shimmery taupes and brown and a bluey black for that extra smoulder. The shades blend in nicely and I love the colour combinations for a golden smokey eye.

Depending on if I have heavy eye makeup but I'll be sure to be rocking a glossy red lip. I know everyone seems to be loving matte lips at the moment but I can't resist that extra shimmer. Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple is so easy to wear and feels nice and soft on the lips. This bright orangey red suits my olively skintone really well and I love how you can layer up the colour intensity.


Even though I like to keep my complexion fairly matte, I love using a highlighter on top of my cheekbones to really lift my features and add that subtle shimmer. This creamy highlighter from Becca Shimmering skin perfector is gorgeous, I dab a small amount and it creates a lovely golden and pearly sheen.


I never usually wear glittery nails but this is the season to start adding that extra sparkle to your finger tips, this silvery sparkling number from Essie - hors d'oeuvres is just perfect as it will go with most outfits and looks. We all know how much of a pain glitter nails is to remove so I save this for special occasions!
