I love playing around with my make-up before the festive week begins, I like to have a good rummage around for any products that I have neglected whilst bringing out the big dogs and actually start using my more high end cosmetics.

I begin my priming my face with the Clarins 'Beauty Flash Balm'  to help my festive make-up to stick around for longer and to help keep my face hydrated throughout the day. My favourite foundation is Mac 'Studio fix fluid' and I only ever whip it out on special occasions because I can't afford to replace it. #studentproblems  After concealing any redness and blemishes using the Collection 'Lasting perfection concealer' and perfecting my brows I like to leave my skin as it is and crack on with the peepers.

Of course, I am a smokey eyed girl however, at Christmas I like to bring out the golds and bronzes to create a warmer eye-makeup similar to this one using a mixture of 'On and on bronze' for the base and UDNP 'Half Baked' on the lids, smoked out by 'Smog,' With plenty of Eyeko eyeliner and lashings of the super volume and lengthening 'Eye rock mascara. '

I set my make-up with the Rimmel 'Stay Matte' powder and sculpt my cheeks with the Physicians Formula 'Deluxe Bronzer' before adding a pop of pink to the apples of my cheeks with the Bobbi Brown 'Rose Gold' powder.  My favourite part of the cheek make-up application has to be using the star of my make-up bag 'Soft and Gentle' highlighter by Mac.

 I finish off the look with my new favourite lippy 'Fresh Moroccan' from Mac a punchy gold infused red/orange.
