The perfect Christmas party make-up

So it's officially December, and with only so many days till the big day, I don't know about you but every weekend seems to be a Christmas party right up until that big day. From work events to family events, you can't escape the festiveness of it all.

And when it comes to fancy events, my favourite part of the evening is dressing up, especially when it comes to doing my make-up.

This time of year is associated with a gold eye and berry lip, so that's what I'm going to base my post around and show you some of my favourite products to create the perfect look for all your festive events.


In my opinion, the perfect palette for this time of year is undoubtedly the Morphe 35OS, it is SO pigmented and buttery and the colours include golds to bronzes t browns to a few shades of pinks. Morphe also do this palette in a matte form but I definitely think the shimmer palette is more suited for the festive season. I think the most astonishing thing about this palette is that it's only £20 for 35 gorgeous buttery shades. 

Another product I would include in my festive look is Illamasque's pure pigment. I swear by this, every time I wear it as inner corner highlight, I get nothing but compliments. It really makes the eyes pop, it is beyond gorgeous. 


Since I have included such a heavy eye, for the highlight and contour I wanted a really natural, matte finish. And what better way to achieve that than with ABH Cream contour. I splashed out on this a few months back and I have never looked back.


I've included 2 of my favourite lip products here. The first one being a very typical festive, berry colour (Revlon Colourstay - Crush) which is really moisturising on the lips which is perfect for this time of year as the cold weather really dries my lips out. The other shade is Rimmel Lipstick in the shade "Asia". I find this shade a perfect dupe for MAC's velvet teddy, however it does not have a matter finish but more of MAC's "lustre" finish.

So these are my favourite festive products! I hope you all have a fab festive season, you can find me at or @lilydealxo
