1 Make Up Look, 2 Earrings & 3 Dresses

21.12.18


Okay, so I imagine most of you guys are pretty much sorted with your festive ensembles by now... however, if you're like me, and kind of left the festive outfit planning to the very last minute, then I thought it would be worthwhile sharing with you some dresses that work perfectly all with the same make up look and the same jewellery - complete versatility here!

My make up at the moment has a kind of 'warm glow' vibe going on. I love wearing a gold eye-shadow and a bit of mascara on my top lashes, and a nude lip is my go-to, especially when drinking and eating are involved (and, let's face it, it's Christmas, when am I not going to be drinking and eating).

I like to begin with Bobbi Brown EXTRA Illuminating Moisture Balm in Pink Glow, and then add a little bit of Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation in 1.0. I then powder any overly-oily areas with some Bobbi Brown Retouching Loose Powder in White and also add any concealer if needed (I use Collection Lasting perfection Concealer in Extra Fair). I apply a little bit of blush with MAC Sheertone Blush in Peaches and literally use any highlighter I have knocking around at the time (I DON'T CARE AS LONG AS I GLOW). On my lower lash line I use a small bit of Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadow in Smoky Gold and use Christian Louboutin Les Yeux Nours Lash Amplifying Lacquer on my upper lashes. Lastly, the lip colour I'm constantly grabbing for at the moment is Bobbi Brown Luxe Liquid Lip High Shine in Camisole - I love it!




In terms of jewellery - when it comes to 'glam-ing' up any kind of look, I love adding my Carat London Antionette Chandelier Earrings. They're just so stunning - anytime I wear them I feel so super fancy! I love pairing them with the Carat London Antionette Ring too!

Of course, there are some cheaper jewellery options available that work just as well - you can have a little nosy below:






Anyway, onto the dresses!

This first one I have to show you is, of course, this amazing Gold Sequinned Dress from Zara.

I first spotted this on the lovely Emily's (@bxwie) Instagram, and she looked so stunning in it, I had to grab it for myself.

I adore the mixture of the velvet material with the sequins, and the open back is just what I was looking for (yes, I just really wanted to get my back out).

I think this looks great styled with both silver and gold jewellery, and would work perfectly with a pair of good ol' black heeled boots.

I can't think of a more perfect dress for Christmas/New Year!



The next dress is for you guys out there who want a little pop of colour, a little bit of an 80's feel, and just can't resist a bargain...

It's this glam-as-hell Pins And Needle Bardot Puff Party Dress, now on sale for £12!!!

I spotted this in Urban Outfitters a few weeks back and just couldn't resist buying this wonderful shimmery purple bargain.

I think this looks so cool with a simple elegant look, but could also be vamped up a bit with a pair of fishnet tights and Dr Martens.

It's just such a unique piece!




Finally, I have the gold satin shirt that I picked up in a Charity Shop.

YEP, this bad boy cost me all of £3.

Literally right after I bought it, I spotted some super similar designs popping up in Zara (click HERE to see) and couldn't thank my lucky stars enough. MINE COST ME £3!!

Anyway, this is one of those pieces that is perfect for those occasions where you want to feel a little fancy, but still want to have room for 6 yorkshire puddings, you know?

I love the over-sized fit, the gold tone is super festive and it's something that can be dressed up or down - what's not to love?!
