Another month over, and once again I’m updating my makeup bag. I’ve cleared out my collection (as you may have spied on my insta story) and also added quite a few new pieces to my drawers, so my December face is full of new and exciting products to try. It’s not complete as I’ve not yet filled it with glittery, festive products but I’ve brought out the very best for now. Here’s what I’ve picked:
Skin wise, I’m after as much hydration as I can get during the coldest months, so I’ve opted for an old favourite this December and added the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation. It’s full of fruit extracts and vitamin E which my skin seems to soak up, providing such a wonderful glow even on the dullest December days.
New to my collection, I’ve tried and tested a few products from NEXT’s new beauty line. The Nx translucent powder has gone straight in to my bag, it’s not the most pigmented but can easily be built up. The nail polishes have got to be my favourite from the collection, I can’t wait to pick up some more in store and keep them all on display.
As for my lips, they are the first place to feel the effects of cold weather so lip balms are essential through the December period. As well as my trusted Vaselines, I’ll be lathering up using the Ted Baker vanilla lip balm and the Jack wills Rose Lip balm on days where I want a little pop of colour.
For eyes, I often leave the bronze and gold for parties and occasions in the festive period so I’ve saved all my warm toned mattes for everyday use. I can already tell my Morphe 35K will be well-loved throughout December although my pink singles from NYX will still make an appearance.
What are you popping in your December makeup bag? I’d love to know!
