Velvet Glam Christmas Party Make-Up with Bourjois

 As we're well into party season, and New Year's Eve is just around the corner, I wanted to share the make-up looking I'll be wearing over the festive season. I was lucky enough to receive this amazing box of Bourjois goodies complimentary in return for a review, and they just so happened to the perfect Christmas make-up look. 

I've used the Healthy Mix Foundation when it was first launched, but I believe the formula has been changed since then. The shade was slightly too light for me, but once I'd get a bit of bronzer on it's a good match. I'd heard lots about the Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Concealer and excited to try it out. I could have done with a slightly lighter shade, as I like my undereye concealer to be very brightening, but it's fine for covering up my dark circles. On a daily basis, I've been using the concealer instead of foundation and it does a great job of evening out my skin and hiding any redness.  
The Blush Pot is my least favourite product from this box of goodies, but only because of the colour. I have fairly rosy cheeks, which I don't like to draw attention to, therefore I tend to stay away from pink blushers. The formula was great, pigmented but not crazy and blended well. I just wish it was a more neutral color. 

Now for the more fun part, the Smoky Stories Eyeshadow Quad in 15 Brilliant Prunette. I'm going to be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this palette. I don't know why, but I just didn't think it was going to be very good. Oh, how wrong was I?! The glittery shade in the centre is absolutely beautiful. I got a lot of pay off when applying it with my finger to the centre of my eyelid. The darker shades blended out so well while keeping their pigment. I love the how this eye look turned out, so perfect for all of those Christmas parties. Another product I'm very happy with it is the Push-Up Volume Glamour Mascara. I don't tend to try out many mascaras, but I'm very happy this one is on my radar now. It gives great definition and length to my lashes without any clumping or flaking throughout the day. My new favourite. 

To finish the look I had the option of three Rouge Velvet The Lipstick in 10 Magni-fig, 11 Berry Formidable or 12 Brunette. As the eye palette has a berry-tone to it I went with it Berry Formidable. I had a feeling I would like these lipsticks, and I was right. The original Rouge Velvet Liquid Lipsticks are some of my all-time favorites, and I can see The Lipsticks becoming a firm favourite, too. The lipsticks aren't quite matte, they're very creamy, comfortable on the lips, and opaque. 

I love how this make-up look turned out and I'm sure you'll be seeing more of these lippes here and on my Instagram
