Festive Beauty Picks

It's finally December (or Decembrr!)! The tree is up, slumped heavy under the weight of bells, baubles and garlands, there's fairylights draped over rooftops and frost bitten mornings call for slippered feet and winter spiced hot chocolates - it's officially Christmas! To further mark the occasion, I've pulled out my favourite sparkly, glittery beauty picks, plus a couple of fail-safe red lipsticks too!

The Nars Outer Limits eyeshadow (dupe here!) is perfect for this time of the year, it's a dreamy, sparkly iridescent rose gold that's ideal to dab on top of any eyeshadow. The flecks of pink and gold glitter add a shimmery, festive touch and it transforms eyeshadows with minimal effort!
Another festive pick is the heavenly Illamasqua Jubilance, a buttery soft eyeshadow with metallic rose gold and silvery sparkles. Paired with red lips and winged liner it looks unreal!

For lips, I've pulled out the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella, a divine, flattering, deep scarlet red. This creamy yet budge proof, chic shade is not only a must-have for the party season but it also looks so festive paired with a cosy scarf and bobble hat too!
The Sleek Matte Me in Rioja Red is a long lasting lip saviour - it's incredible staying power means that I can indulge in as many veggie roast dinner's and chocolate oranges as possible without worrying about smudges or too many top ups throughout the day! The applicator is a little tricky and as it's a liquid lipstick it can be difficult to apply, but once set it lasts for hours and hours before fading to a stain.

Festive nails are a must-have for December! I've been reaching for Essie Glow Your Own Way, a gorgeous sparkly pick with flecks of bronze and snow white glitter and Essie Leading Lady, a deep glittery red!

For highlighter, I've opted for the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal, a gorgeous golden peach highlighter for a candle lit glow. The texture is dreamy, silky soft and so saturated, you only need a light dusting for dewy, luminous skin. The peachy tones are so flattering, it's the perfect complexion pick me up!

Lastly for blusher, I've pulled out a couple of heavenly picks. The dusky mauve/pink Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure sculpts the cheeks effortlessly and the swirls of ambient lighting powder perks up lacklustre skin (ideal for winter). I'm also smitten with the Nars Dolce Vita Blush, this rosy berry red blusher packs a punch, you only need a small amount for flushed, rosy cheeks!

What are you favourite festive beauty picks?
