A festive theme seems to have creeped into my daily makeup look and I’ve been loving a red lip teamed with a golden/bronzy eye. Usually I still for one, either a coloured eye with a neutral lip or a bright lip and neutral eye but I actually think this look has been working quite well and I can’t stop recreating it!
I discovered Clique Matte Crimson in my collection a few weeks ago, it hadn’t had much use as I don’t use reds quite as much in summer but I am so glad I rediscovered it. Although it’s a matte lipstick, it doesn’t dry out the lips or cling to dry patches which is very rare. It’s a beautiful classic blue red, which applies evenly and whitens the teeth. Teamed with that I have one of my favourite eyeshadows, MAC Woodwinked. Although it’s a bronze colour, I find it’s quite close to my skintone and therefore doesn’t look too made-up, I also find that I don’t really need a crease colour with this makes it all look a little more effortless. I do however find that this eyeshadow requires a little bit of eyeliner to really define the eye and lash line for which I turned to Estee Lauder Double Wear Liner.
For the rest of the makeup I keep it fairly simple, Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation teamed with a quick brush of Eyeko Brow Gel and a sweep of Illamasqua Contour Powder under the cheek bones. Depending on how I am feeling I also often add a touch of Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector powder in Moonstone which is the most perfect highlighter I own, beautifully fine texture and I love the colour.
Another item I have been wearing a lot recently my new Vashi Pearl Pendant Necklace which I find to go with most outfit as it’s beautiful, classic and quite dainty. If you have heard of Vashi, he is the man who lots of celebrities go to for diamonds and beautiful Jewellery and you may have recently seen his work on Cheryl Cole on the X Factor. You can purchase the items from Vashi.com and it’s a worth a look if you are looking to purchase something special this Christmas.
