Face of December with Burberry Lip Mist in Rosy Red

I can be a bit obsessive (that's the Scorpio in me), but sometimes I just get hooked on a certain makeup look and wear it all month long.

This was Decembers face.

Before Makeup
MAC Fix +

I like to spray some of this all over my face before I apply any makeup as I find it gives my foundation a more glowy finish.


Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light

This doesn't do anything amazing for your skin. It doesn't give it any extra glow, or fill in any pores but it has to be the best primer I have found for keeping your makeup on your face, which is all you really need from a primer.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation mixed with NARS Illuminator in Copacabana

Magic is a full coverage foundation, definitely not something I would want to wear in Summer, but good for these winter months. It's more coverage than I usually like but I like the flawless finish and the fact that it stays put all day. I mix a blob of the NARS Illuminator to bring back some glow.

Corrector and Concealer
Bobbi Brown Corrector in 'Bisque' and Clarins Instant Concealer

I'm a bit addicted to the Bobbi Brown Corrector now, its just the bomb at covering under eye circles. This Clarins concealer is equally wonderful, I love the light consistency especially when you're using a heavy concealer. A little goes a long way and you could wear it alone for that #nomakeup look.

Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder

This and Charlotte Tilbury's powder are my two favourites, but this costs £3.99.

Too Faced Dark Chocolate Soleil

Looks like chocolate, smells like chocolate, but it's a bronzer. I'm not complaining though as it's one of my favourites. Rich colour and a smooth formula, also works as the perfect warm toned brown eyeshadow.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in "Red Head"

The worst two words in a makeup lovers vocabulary, limited edition. This highlight is a blush and highlight in one and I just love the warm peachy colour. It reminds me of Bobbi Browns Shimmer Bricks but less obnoxious, sadly it was a limited edition release from many moons ago.

Setting Spray
Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist

Completely unnecessary step, but c'mon who can say no to that packaging?


Anastasia Brow Wiz in Caramel and Benefit Gimme Brow in Light/Medium

I love this Anastasia Brow Wiz, it's been a game changer for me and replaced my beloved Hourglass pencil. The Gimme Brow I'm just trying to use up.

Eyeshadow Primer
NARS Pro Prime Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base


MAC All That Glitters

Can you tell this is my all time favourite eyeshadow? The perfect everyday, all over lid colour. It's going to take all my might not to repurchase this when I finally finish it.

Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara

Amazing, length, curl and volume, you need to try this.


Burberry Lip Mist in Rosy Red

I am particularly fond of a sheer red lipstick because it makes me feel like Liv Tyler. This is my favourite sheer red, so of course Burberry have discontinued it (hold me). These Lip Mists have now been replaced by the Sheer Kisses line, I haven't tried so can't compare. 
Nothing lasts forever hey.
