Natural Christmas Makeup & A Red Lip


For me Christmas is about spending time with my family, spending the morning in my pyjamas sitting by the fireplace opening presents and then tucking into an amazing dinner that my mother has spent all day preparing. I rarely have time for makeup and always opt for a natural look with a bold lip.

Here I'm wearing is the L'Oreal BB Cream*, Soap & Glory 2in1 Eyebrow Pencil in Hot Chocolate, Nars Audacious Mascara, Nars Orgasm Blusher and the Nars Lagoona Bronzer on the cheeks, temples and on my eyes blended into the crease.

This year I have a great red lined up for the big day. The Beauty UK lipstick in Naughty - £3.49. I found the name of this quite funny given the circumstances. Rest assured that I have been good all year and will no doubt be on the nice list. I didn't think I would suit a warmed toned red as my skin is quite pale but I actually really like it. It's moisturising, relatively long lasting and fades nicely to resemble a pinkier toned stain. Great when you're tucking into dinner and sipping on mulled wine all day.

Oh my goodness I can't wait!

Beauty UK is no longer available in Superdrug which is really sad but fear not they may still be hanging around in some stores and are still available online. For a few pounds, this lipstick is a complete bargain and one that I definitely recommend checking out.

What happens to your beauty routine on Christmas day? Have you got a favourite festive red lip?
