Festive FOTD

This isn't the make-up that I wore on Christmas day itself (I didn't leave the house and the only people who saw me were my parents so I went make-up free) but I have been wearing this around Christmas time - the festive period definitely makes glitter acceptable during the day. I've fallen into a pattern of putting on exactly the same make-up everyday which I need to stop doing as I have so much stuff but for the last few days, this has been my look:


No 7 Instant Radiance Concealer
Rimmel Hide The Blemish Concealer
17 Oil Control Pressed Powder
Clinique All Over Colour in Plum Poppy

Mac Paint Pot in Rubenesque
NYX Glitter Cream Palette - love this, the glitter doesn't end up all over my face and the five bronzey shades are all gorgeous
L'Oreal Superliner
Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara

Clinique Superbalm in Berry

Accessory Crossing @ Boots

I'll probably do something similar for NYE tomorrow night - maybe with a bit more glitter before I have to put the palette away for another year. I'm working until 10.30pm tomorrow so I'll only have about 5 minutes to get ready before a 30 minute walk to the party I'm going to. I Haven't even decided what I'm wearing yet, my new year's resoultion should definitely be not to leave things until the last minute.

I say this every year, but, the last year flew by. I'm not usually one for making resolutions or getting sentimental about calandar years but 2010 has definitely been one of the most important and exciting years of my life and I'm a bit sad that it's all over. I hope that 2011 is just as good and that I'm not jinxing myself by admitting to having had a good year.

I hope you all have fun tomorrow night and see out 2010 in style, however good or bad it has been for you,and that 2011 brings you all that you wish for.

What will you be wearing to see in the new year?
