Hi, everyone! First off, I hope that all of you had an absolutely fantastic Christmas yesterday! Whether you spent the day with a huge amounts of friends and family, nuzzled up cozily in your jammies, or in a perpetual food coma, I hope the holiday was just as you wanted it to be :)
My Christmas tradition meant presents(!) in the morning, cooking omelettes for my parents, sister, and brother-in-law for brunch, a visit with an old friend during the afternoon, a huge dinner with my mother's family, then silly games and drinks at a family friend's house afterwards. It was a full-on day that left me totally exhausted, but it was completely lovely!
When I got home near the stroke of midnight, I couldn't help but admire the fact that my makeup had held strong for a full 10 hours. Knowing that I had a crazy day ahead of me, I purposely focused on long-wear products, and they really did the trick! I have to give props to my bullet-proof foundation, Revlon ColourStay Whipped Creme Makeup in Buff, a seriously pretty glowy cheek combo, BeneFit Watts Up and Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Incandescent Electra, and one of my new favourite shadow palettes, the Too Faced Natural Eyes Collection. I also turned to my favourite long-lasting lip product, Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet. It wears incredibly well and stays matte without any caking or clumping. I got this gorgeous red shade, Personne ne Rouge, in a holiday set, and am smitten!
