Now to add some colour to that face. We've suggested an option for blush and bronze but personally with the shimmer on the eye, I would use quite a light hand as both of these contain shimmer. Firstly, our previously mentioned MUA Mosaic Bronzer in shade 2 sunkissed glow which is a really nice general glowing bronze shade for this time of year. Our choice of blush is the Rimmel Lasting Finish Soft Colour Blush. The main reason this new purchase made it into this post (and into my shopping basket for that matter) is the shade name. It's called Santa Rose and after spotting it in the swatch draw, I searched all of the lines to find the only one there! This is a really nice subtle yet 'there' coral-y pink shimmer and is perfect for the festive season.
Who doesn't want lashes with amazing volume at a Christmas party that will wow your friends, family or colleagues? Well I would really recommend No7 Midnight Lash Mascara. I have to admit the first thing that attracted me to this mascara was the sparkly packaging - it is really pretty and not tacky in any way. Then I saw the spoolie and could not resist picking it up. And I am so glad I did. This mascara gives my lashes so much volume and length they look incredible. It doesn't flake or smudge once on and it lasts for a good few hours. Once again, No7 have delivered with a great new release this winter. Also, if you buy it now at Boots you can get £3 off!
Minis: mini products are a great, cheap way to introduce people to products you love or to use as little stocking fillers. Normally you can get good offers on minis around December time as well so even if you just want some for yourself now's a great time to pick them up. Below are a couple of ideas that we like but I would also recommend Sanctuary Spa minis and Soap & Glory minis as the original products are often quite expensive.
Gift boxes: gift boxes are a really nice gift to give to somebody if you know they love a certain brand but don't know what products to get. Below we have the Bourjois gift box that was free if you spent a certain amount of money but you can get other gift boxes that contain a lot more and you can buy individually. We like the Sanctuary Spa gift boxes as they contain a variety of products and also Benefit gift boxes.
Stay beautiful x
