I am so happy December is here. I have been munching my chocolates everyday from my calender, decorating the office, listening to Michael Buble's velvety tones on the radio and getting my Christmas shopping done....maybe not as fast as Id like but hey theres always panic buying....eek!
November was a busy month for me adjusting to my new job and job role but I'm glad to report I'm settling into a routine quite nicely from week to week and enjoying where I work. I thought Id show you what Ive been loving over November and what I will doubtless be loving over December too.
With Face products I have been loving Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation and Estee Lauder double wear. The double wear lasts me through my long days, but I also really enjoy the luminosity of the Wake me Up Foundation. I always use my Real Techniques Buffing Brush to apply my foundation and it smooths out my base perfectly. I also use the small Real Techniques brush to apply Benefit's Erase paste to my under eye area.
I am always mixing up my blush throughout the week. It depends on what colours I'm wearing and whether I am going for a bold of natural look. I really have been embracing a rosier cheek over November. Her Blooming Cheek is a limited edition which is very similar to MAC Dollymix, little is more and I love the hot pink flush it brings to my cheeks. Nars Deep Throat is another favourite, fairly understated with a silver shimmer running through it it brings definition to the face an compliments a stong eye colour perfectly. The Accessorize baked blush is another gentle shimmer which brings wonderful luminosity to a look, its a brand I don't know an awful lot about but would love to try more of their products.
Nails have been high on the agenda over November, I have to confess that the Models Own Wonderland collection has been possibly my best nails purchase this year and my nails have been adorned with all types of sparkle throughout November. To tone the general sparkly campness of a glitter nail I have been using nudey colours such as Essie Mademoiselle which I think is a "my nails but better" colour. I really have been enjoying my nail combinations more than usual thanks to Models own, read my review here.
My lips have remained very office appropriate over November. I have been absolutely loving 17's new look Beehive lipstick and will post a full review out in due course. Its just wonderfully moisturising for this cold weather as is Honey is moisturising a more-pigmented-kinda-way.
Phew late better than never.
I cant believe how quick the holidays are coming around.
