Makeup Favourites for the Christmas Season

Here are some of my favourite makeup products that I will be using all through this Christmas season.

1. Chanel Lipstick - Rouge Allure 98 Coromandel

A red lipstick is a staple part of my Christmas makeup bag, and this one is the perfect shade for winter this year.  It is smooth and hydrating, not drying out your lips which is important in the cold winter months, and will be perfect for a Christmas party.

2. Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder - 1 Fair

This powder sets my foundation all day with a smooth matte finish, and is as light as air.  It is not a powder foundation so don't expect a lot of coverage, but it gives a beautiful setting finish to your makeup look.

3. Essie nail polish - Fishnet stockings

More red - it is Christmas! I love having festive red nails at this time of year, and I have to say this Essie nail polish is one that has lasted on my nails without chipping for much longer than most, and is a cheery red shade perfect for Christmas.

4. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara - Blackest black

This is my favourite mascara and has been for a number of months now, it sweeps through every single lash, and gives incredible volume whilst still lengthening.

5. Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

I use this palette all year round, however I have particularly loved the colour Half Baked recently as it is a warm golden colour that is perfect for the Christmas season.  This palette is brilliant as you can use it for everyday makeup but also create a smoky eye for the evening.

Let me know your favourite makeup products for Christmas time!


  1. I love the nail varnish! I'm also very jealous of your Charlotte tilbury powder 😍

    1. Thanks! I love Chatlotte Tilbury makeup, especially the lipsticks!

  2. Would you say the Charlotte Tilbury powder is worth the money? :)

    1. Hello! I personally love it, my boyfriend works in John Lewis and gets 25% off so it's not as pricey for me, but I think it does give a really good finish to my makeup and holds my foundation - however if coverage is what you're looking for its not a powder foundation it's just to set you're makeup. I like that as it doesn't look too heavy on the skin like some powders! I rate Charlotte Tilbury products very highly, just wish they were cheaper!
