The Festive Party Makeup Edit

With Christmas just around the corner it means it time for festive parties and family gatherings, so I thought I'd share with my top party makeup picks for this time of year!

Stila Stay All day Foundation and corrector // £29 (currently on offer for £23.50

For parties  I like a long lasting base that I'm not going to have worry about touching up and transferring everywhere. And this Stila foundation is perfect for that! This is oil free, high promance, medium to full coverage foundation, that leaves a flawless matte finish. It also has skin loving ingredients to keep skin hydrated and added skin care benefits! There's also a nifty concealer hidden in the cap, that covers dark circles and blemishes, in creamy blendable formula!

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer // £5.99

This is one of my favourite drug store concealers. I love this for highlighting under my eyes, centre of my forehead and down the nose. This is so creamy and blendable with an amazing natural finish, that's stays all day, without creasing. I have the shade 15, with is oddly paler than the palest shade 10.

Freedom Pro Strobe Kit // £10    POST

For contour the Freedom Pro Strobe kit is a must! This budget friendly beauty contains 3 contour and bronzing shades and 3 highlighting shades. I like to use the darkest brown shade to contour with and I'm left with perfectly sculpted cheek bones, ready for any event!

Sleek Face Form Palette in the shade light // £9.99    POST

I like this palette for the highlight shade! This is an all out there highlight, that gives a stunning glow to the face. Perfect for parties. I sweep this across the tops of my cheek bones to finish of that killer contour!

Milani Baked Blush in the shade 03 Berry Amore // £5    POST

To finish of the cheeks I've been loving this Milani Baked blush! Its a lovely berry shade, in keeping with autumn / winter colours.

Urban Decay Naked Palette // £38

This palette almost comes out for any kind if party look! But I love a bronze / gold smoky eye for the festive season. I love the shade Half Baked all over the lid and then blended out with Buck.

Barry M Dazzle Dust in the shade 44 // £4.59

I like to pat this over the top of half baked (with a damp eye shadow brush) for an added copper sparkle to the eye look. This is also a good dupe for MACs Copper pigment.

NYX Intense Butter Gloss in the shade Toasted Marshmallow // £5.50     POST

I sometimes find a bold matte lip to high maintance when I'm out - fading patch and transferring all round my face (not a good look) so sometimes I like to opt for gloss. And this offering from NYX is perfect! Its a highly pigmented plum shade ideal for the party seasons. The lasting power is also pretty good for gloss and it wears evenly!

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray // £21

This is an essential for keeping makeup looking fresh! There's nothing worse that looking in the mirror at a party to find your concealers creased and your foundation's patchy and this is perfect for preventing that!

To finish the look add a few coats of your favourite mascara or lashes!
 So that's my top festive party picks! What are yours?

Until next time...
