Christmas Party Makeup: My favourite products

This has been the makeup I have been reaching for this Christmas period as the golden eyeshadow really compliments blue eyes, whilst the red lip makes me feel so festive! 

1. Laura Mercier Radiant Foundation Primer

During Christmas parties you want you skin to have a radiant glow but you also want that glow to stay in place all evening so a radiance primer is always a favourite of mine. Full review here

2. SPF Free Foundation

No one wants to look like Caspar the friendly ghost the next day on Facebook so using foundations without SPF is a must. My favourites are the Giorgio Armarni Luminous Silk (full review) and the NARS Sheer Glow (full review) as both have medium coverage and a gorgeous satin finish to the skin. 

3. Adding the Glow

Everyone wants healthy looking skin and I think the Topshop Glow in Polished (full review) is the perfect product to give a natural glow. 

4. Golden Eyes

Half Baked from Urban Decay Naked One is my favourite golden shadow as it is applies like a dream and gives a lovely shimmery warm colour to the lids. I often pair it with Naked or Dark Horse in the crease and a winged liner. 

5. Red lips

Nothing screams Christmas like a bold red lip and whilst lots of people don't like a glossy bold lip I still remain obsessed with the Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang (full review). I have not found a product that matches this for colour, price and lasting power. I line my lips first, apply the product, blot then reapply and it lasts all night.

What are your favourite products to use at Christmas?
