So it is the day where most of us have our work Christmas parties! I'll be off to a friends for Christmas drinks too, so I thought it would be a good time to share with you some makeup goodies from Bourjois to help create your festive look. For me, this time of year is all about getting glammed up, so bright lips and smoky eyes are the order of the day.
To achieve this, I have used one of Bourgeois new(ish) eyeshadow pallets, aptly named Smoky Stories (£7.99 ASOS) and I opted for Good Nude - a mixture of 3 different browns and a sparkly silver to highlight and embellish.
To add extra drama, to my eyes, I added Bourjois Mega Liner (£7.49 Boots) on my upper lids which has a chunky angular nib which does make application more accurate (and I don't have the steadiest of hands). I then finished my eyes with lashings of Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde mascara in Ultra Black. I fell in love with the regular version of this mascara back in the summer (see post here) and this doesn't disappoint - although I don't notice it being any darker than the original...
To finish the look, I swept Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick - which is more of a matte gloss, across my lips. I choice the Hot Pepper bright red for classic glam, but Peach Club is a more subtle option. Although I love the colour and the staying power it did take a little while to get the colour consistent across all of the lip.
So ladies, I hope I've given you some inspiration for your Christmas parties this weekend!
