Christmas day calls for many things; Bucks Fizz, over indulging on the roast potatoes, cheesy Christmas jokes and shed loads of chocolate. Another necessity is makeup that has the Staying Power needed to get through anything; drink, food and kissable proof.
L’Oréal Infallible Primer Matte Base > I have spoken about this so many times; I absolutely love it! It keeps my makeup in one place and I love the texture as it melts into my skin so easily and doesn’t leave it feeling greasy. It reminds me of the Smashbox Primers.
Maybelline The Rocket Waterproof Mascara > Waterproof mascaras always hold a curl better so I would opt for this when needing my lashes to stay looking lush all day. The brush is a great size, not too big but big enough to wrap around my lashes. The amount of product that comes out is just right for me too; I don’t like mascaras that are too ‘wet’ as I tend to find they smudge easily and are harder to apply.
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets > Now anyone who knows me knows how much I love love love these lip products. I have pretty much recommended to everyone I know and if you want gorgeous shades that are matte, stay put through anything then this is the product you need – I have three shades I love them that much. They apply liquid and set quickly to give a gorgeous matte finish; they are really easy to build up too for a bolder look.
Bourjois 1 Seconde Nail Polish > Again I have a couple of these and I really like the metallic shades. The brush is great for applying; they dry quickly and give a really good finish. Not the most long lasting I have tried but still a favourite.
Boss Nuit Eau de Parfum > A gorgeous fruity floral scent with a hint of musk perfect for Christmas day. It isn’t too overpowering but lasts well and rather reasonable price wise.
