House of Fraser Beauty Blogger Competition - Christmas Party Look

Hey Pixies!

So today I have an entry for a competition! Now you guys know that I have a rather unhealthy obsession with makeup so when my friend put me in touch with this competition I thought what the hey! I don't pretend to be very good at makeup but it doesn't hurt to have a go right?

So first I did my base. I used MAC Select spf Foundation in NW20 and MAC Mineralize concealer in NW20 too! This is just a really pretty, flawless but dewy - great for a party:) 

Then I moved onto my eyes! For a base I used UDPP and then I used the shades 'Virgin', 'Sin' and 'Half baked' from the Urban Decay Naked Palette to create a pretty, shimmery base for the rest of the eye makeup. I then used 'Creep' to create what I like to call a 'crease liner'. I then used the Topshop pen liner to line the tops of my eyes and joining them up to the crease liner. Then topped off with Maybelline the Falsies Mascara. This gives a really striking 60s look that is super easy to create. 

For my face I used 'Buck' from the Naked Palette to contour my cheek bones and 'Virgin' to highlight. I then used the 'perfect-for-a-party' Nars Orgasm! This creates a subtle but cute face. 

But then just to tip the over the top look over the edge - a red lip! Ruby Woo from MAC is just the thing!! 


So yeah that's my look! - I sure hope I'm not late for the competition as it closes today! I think this is just Christmas in makeup - Gold, Red and a Statement!! 

Thanks for reading!x
