Make-Up For The Festive Season: LOOK 1



The festive season is here, hurrah!!! I don’t know about you guys but it’s only ever at this time of year that I get a bit more experimental with my make-up and I for one have had it up to the eyeballs with the “classic” smokey eye.  I wear that look all year round so I’ve just created a slightly different twist on the classic smokey eye using some colours I’ve always wanted to try out.  The best bit is that this entire make up look was created using drugstore products only (Ok, with the exception of my Bobbi Brown eyebrow brush!).  If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll have recently seen my huge Make-Up Revolution haul from Superdrug and this look actually uses some of the products from that haul.  A full list of products used is below and I will soon be uploading a tutorial onto my YouTube Channel so you can see exactly how I created this look.  There will be 3 additional looks in this festive series and there will be posts and video tutorials for each one, so if this look is a bit too dramatic or bold for you, I have some more subtle looks coming up in the next couple of weeks!
