Bourjois | Christmas & New Year Makeup


So it's Christmas Eve tomorrow and I can barely contain my excitement anymore! I can't believe it even though I've been looking forward to Christmas so much, it still feels unreal at the moment. In a matter of hours it will be Christmas morning and I'll be eating mince pies - yeah, at six in the morning because I don't want to waste a minute of the day, haha!

Anyway, onto today's post. There is no better time to dress up than at Christmas and with all the parties and New Year coming up, I thought I'd do a post showing some of my favourite make up products for this time of year. I'll be wearing this look on Christmas day. All these products are from Bourjois - my all time favourite high street make up brand! They never disappoint and I thought it would be nice to use all the products from just from one brand.

On my face I use the Bourjois CC cream. I never got the hype at first but this cream makes my skin look so much more naturally clearer and brighter than foundation. Unlike some CC creams, this one actually does cover up imperfections. I then put on the matching 123 Perfection CC eye cream to cover up dark circles. Then I put on some Healthy Mix concealer. I love this concealer as it's affordable but covers up all my imperfections! I use this when I feel I need extra coverage and it does the job perfectly. I actually need a new one as I've ran out now. Then I use the blush exclusif! I love this! The blush changes to suit everyones skin tone. See why Bourjois is my favourite brand? :)

Then on my eyes I use the latest Bourjois release which is the Smoky Stories quad palette. I love this because of the shimmery highlighter in the middle of the quad. It's really sparkly and adds so much more to my eye look. I don't use eyeliner because I want it to be all about the lashes. This is one of my favourite mascaras ever! The Volume 1 Seconde mascara should be in everyone's make up bag.

Now onto my favourite part of any make up look. The lips! It wouldn't be a Christmas look without a bright red lipstick would it? This is my all time favourite lipstick and that is a pretty bold statement coming from me. I'm a massive lipstick junkie but nothing beats the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks. This shade is Hot Pepper and it's so bright but wearable too. It stays put for hours and completes this festive look! Highly recommended.

There is my Christmas look! I hope you all have a great Christmas and remember to have a great, relaxing time too! I hope you all enjoyed this post.

  11. You've totally inspired me to pick up a CC cream after reading this post. I hate foundation bc it's so heavy and I've tried a bb cream in the past but I think a cc cream is just what I need!
