December Favourites

Sorry this video is up so so late! It took a couple of tries to upload it, and when it finally worked, no joke, it took over 24 hours to upload! I started it the night before, and it didn't finish til later the next night. Needless to say I was relieved when it worked! :)


This month I found I was a bit more relaxed as far as makeup goes while I was on holiday from work. I didn't do much during the day, so something simple if at all was what I went for. Other than Christmas parties and lunches and dinners of course :P


Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely December, Christmas and New Year, and that you enjoy the video :)




Stay beautiful.

I'm Back! What I got for Christmas (Beauty)

I'm back! Sorry I was gone for so long, but we had computer troubles and I needed the break and the time to chill out. I'm not going to say I didn't enjoy it :P


But let's get straight back into it. I was still good while I was away, I was sure to take photo's of everything when I could. So first up are the swatches of all the amazing things I got for Christmas. I was very spoilt, and was so happy with everything I got and just couldn't wait to try everything :)


First, I was pretty excited to get some MAC eyeshadows that I'd been eyeing off. L-R Parfait Amour, Scene, Carbon.




Natural light.

Getting arty :P

Now some swatches. The top swatches are bare, the bottom are over Urban Decay Primer Potion.

It comes with a sponge.

And now swatches. L-R blush, lipgloss, stain, stain blended.

Next, something I'd definitely wanted for a while, the Sigma Flare Palette.

And some swatches. You can't really see beware, it's about my skin colour just a tad pinker.

And last but definitely not least, my Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in #58 Royallieu. I love this.

And now swatches. They really don't show off how lovely this lipstick is. Its a beautiful but natural baby pink that's very sheer, but easily buildable.

So I feel very spoilt and am very happy with everything. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Let me know what your favourite presents were that you received.

Stay beautiful.
