The Christmas party season is upon us, think office parties, after work drinks and walks around the Christmas markets with mulled wine. I love this time of year but I find myself very busy, usually jumping from one event to the next after work so I need reliable makeup looks that I can quickly transform ready for my evening events. Thankfully The Body Shop have everything I need to do just that.
This Christmas season I've been using products from The Body Shop to transform my daytime makeup to something sultry for the evening. All my products and brushes fit perfectly in my makeup bag meaning I can just grab what I need and go, whether that's a quick eyeliner flick or a berry pout.
I've used makeup brushes from The Body Shop for years so the introduction of their new eco range definitely pricked up my beauty loving ears. The new brushes are all 100% cruelty free and vegan plus they have FSC wooden handles which make them look super luxe.
After my morning skincare routine, I prep my skin using the All-In-One Instablur* which is a little wonder product as it has five skin enhancing beauty benefits. I then apply the Fresh Nude Foundation with the Fresh Nude Foundation Brush* and the All-In-One Concealer in 00* before adding blusher, bronze and highlight.
To fix my brows, I use the Brow & Liner Kit in 02*. It comes with a handy little brush to line, shape and groom cutting brow time in half. Next is my favourite part, the eyes! Using the Double Ended Eye Shadow brush*, I apply Sahara Dune, Peru Clay and Aztec Gold from the Down to Earth Palette* followed by Bengal Granite in the crease with the Eyeshadow Crease brush*. Lining my eyes is made easy with the Duo Eye Definer* then I just coat my lashes with the Super Volume Mascara in 01* which keeps my lashes look fabulous from day to night.
This whole look works really well during the day as I find it quite natural for me, I just deepen the kohl liner when I finish work ready for the night ahead. I'm a big red or berry lip fan so I keep two shades in my bag from The Body Shop for the night ahead. I'm really loving liquid lipsticks at the moment so the Matte Lip Liquid in Mauritius Dahlia* is my most reached for. My red of choice this Christmas season is the Matte Lip in New Orleans Scarlet* used alongside the Lip Definer in Red Siren*. I also have the Lip Line Fixer* just in case I'm in a rush and make a slip!
