I love getting ready for a night out and putting my make up on is definitely the highlight. It was my work's Christmas party last weekend and I decided to re-create the make up look I wore for that, for the #Bloggersxmas event in London as it was fairly festive. You can have a peak at my outfit here and have a read about the #Bloggerxmas event here.

I decided that with a bold red lip I would opt for a very natural base and a golden smokey eye. I applied my usual moisturiser and then used the Seventeen Skin Wow Primer to provide a soft glow. I then used Benefit Cosmetics Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation in Ivory and touched up any imperfections with Mac's Pro-Longwear Concealer. I used Benefit's Hoola Bronzer to provide a bit of warmth and definition to my face and added a tiny amount of Benefit's Hervana Blusher to the apples of my cheeks.

For my eyes I popped on a small amount of Urban Decay's Complexion Primer Potion and then used Seventeen's Instant Glow Shimmer Brick in Gold Bronze as it works really well as an eye shadow pallet to create a soft gold smokey eye. I then lined my top lids with Topshop's Liquid Liner and used black eyeliner under my eyes and in my waterline. I put on lashings of Benefit's They're Real Mascara on my lashes and filled in my eyebrows with Benefit's Brow-Zings. For my lips I applied Mac's He Said She Said Pro-Longwear Lip Liner with Mac's Viva Glam by Miley Cyrus.
