Firstly, can you believe that their is five days left of the 365 challenge because i honestly can not and i have no idea how the heck i have managed to maintain posting each day! Secondly, can you believe that Christmas is pretty much over already? To attempt to relive Christmas day for a little bit longer i thought I'd show you how i did my make up. I did plan to go for a proper bold lip but come Christmas day i just didn't feel like it so i kept it pretty simple (as usual).

My base make-up consisted of Benefit Fake Up Concealer* to cover my under eyes and YSL Youth Liberator Serum in B30 for my foundation, i added a Bourjous Delice De Soliel Bronzer onto the cheeks and blended it up into the temples just to add some colour into the face, and i blended a small amount of Etude House Watercolour Blush in Coral to add a little flush of colour to the cheeks - i then set everything in my place with my usual Benefit Hello Flawless Custom Cover Up Powder*

I kept the eyebrows very simple and just groomed them with Maybelline Brow Drama in Dark Brown and i created the eye look using Urban Decay's Naked 3 Palette - i used the shade 'Strange' all over the lid and the shade 'Limit' into the crease and then i took my Mac Eyeshadow in 'Satin Taupe' and blended it into the outer corner and used a clean fluffy brush to blend it all out and make sure there is no harsh lines. I lined the eyes with Rimmel Scandaleyes Micro Precision eyeliner and applied Maybelline the Falsies Mascara to the lashes.

I was intended on a big bold lip but i just wasn't feeling it so instead i went with Sonia Kashuk Tinted Lip Balm in Hint of Red.

I hope you liked this post; i tried to keep the description and process much more brief than my usual FOTD post, so please let me know if you prefer this more brief format. As i mentioned it was a very simple make up look and i used my new Enrapture Jumbo Waver on my hair and i really like how it turned out!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas!
How did you wear your make-up?

Trust me when I say you made the right choice not going for a bold lip haha I went for the boldest red and ended up having to reapply it constantly as I ate and drank :p I really like how natural you've gone with your makeup tempted to get that sonia kashuk lip balm it looks so damn pretty on you :) x
