Collective holiday make-up haul

It’s time for another holiday make-up haul. This one is a collective haul of most of the holiday make-up releases that I’ve purchased this year.

Let’s start with the BH Cosmetics holiday collection. These products are the most Christmassy ones in this haul.

First off, I picked up the Kissmas Wishes Liquid Lip Duo in Jingle Belle which contains a red liquid lipstick and a gold gloss; the perfect Christmas lip combo.

I also picked up the Bad & Bougie blush quad, which contains some really interesting and unique blush shades.

And I obviously had to pick up the big palette from this year’s BH Cosmetics holiday collection. It’s called The Lit List eyeshadow palette and it contains 30 shades. They all look so pretty!

This year I also picked up the limited edition Ambient Lighting palette from Hourglass. It’s called Ambient Lighting Edit Universe complexion palette, and it contains five beautiful complexion products. The packaging is stunning too.

The last couple of holiday releases that I’ve purchased are lipsticks. I thought the Clinique Plenty of Pop lipstick set was so cute. I mean, just look at that candy like packaging! I’ve tried three out of five shades already, and I really like the formula.

Lastly, I picked up one of the Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Metallics limited edition metallic lipsticks, because it just looked so beautiful. I chose the shade 003 Fiery Red, and it’s such a pretty, metallic red shade. Stay tuned for one more Christmas themed make-up haul.

Metallic, smokey blues

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. If I want to wear an intense, metallic, smokey eye I tend to go for blues, and an all blue eye look was perfect for my all blue (and white) outfit.

All the colours of my jumper

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I tried to create an eye look using most of the colours in my jumper, and I think it turned out quite nice. I also loved wearing a deep, vampy lip.

(Base: primer – I Heart Revolution x Elf collection primer, foundation – e.l.f.

Stirrups

Here’s what I wore Tuesday November 16. I’m a little obsessed with this outfit to be honest. I never thought that I would be into leggings again, but I’m loving stirrups. They add something really fun and interesting to a look.

Christmas clothing and accessories haul

It’s time for my annual Christmas clothing and accessories haul. This year’s haul mainly consists of clothing. Let’s start with H&M.

These first two jumpers are not necessarily christmassy, but they’re definitely wintery with the ski theme. I’m really looking forward to wearing both of these.

Here’s a more classic fairisle style Christmas jumper with the cutest little gingerbread men.

H&M often makes cute Disney printed clothes, and this sweatshirt is no exception. Those were the H&M pieces.

Today, I received a parcel containing this thin, red jumper among other things. It’s from Vero Moda and it’s from Christmas last year, so it has heavily discounted. I really like the embroidered Christmas tree. It’s so pretty and festive.

Let’s move on to a couple of sweater vests. This one is from Asos Design, and even though not all the colours are very Christmassy, the print is.

I am so excited about this matching sweater vest and skirt form Monki. Isn’t is adorable?

I think this is the only Christmas dress that I own. It’s from my local super market, and it’s super cozy.

I purchased both of these T-shirts on sale earlier on this year, but I still hadn’t gotten around to posting the haul they were in, so I thought it was very appropriate to include them in this haul instead. They’re from Christmas last year, and they’re are both from Asos Design.

I thought that I would also include this set PJ set in this haul. These PJs are from a brand called Loungeable, and they are so soft and comfy, which I know, because I’ve been sleeping in them this week.

When I saw this beanie at my local super market, I just couldn’t pass on it. I love the festive print, and it lights up!

I’ve only purchased one pair of Christmas socks this year, because I’ve got so many from previous years. These are also from my local super market.

I wasn’t sure weather to include these in the haul, but then I thought why not. I mean, they’re santa slippers (from Flying Tiger). What’s not to like?

Last, but not least, I’ve bought these adorable Christmas Jibbitz for Crocs. I haven’t hauled them yet, but I’ve actually purchased two pairs of Crocs sandals (so not the orignal Crocs). One of the pairs are very summery, and I’ve been wearing those out on warm days. The other pair I purchased to wear as slippers indoors, and that pair has been decorated with these festive Jibbitz, and I’m obsessed!

Matte vs. glowy

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Because of the fact that I wore a matte eye look and a matte lip colour, I decided to make the base and complexion more glowy, and I really like this look.

(Base: primer – I Heart Revolution x Elf collection primer, foundation – Essence Fresh & Fit foundation (shade: 05 Fresh Porcelaine), concealers – Too Faced Born This Way super coverage concealer (shade: Snow) + Fenty Beauty Bright Fix Eye Brightener (shade: Golden Ivory), powders – Essence Brighten Up! Banana powder in 10 Bababanana + Dior Backstage Face & Body Powder-No-Powder in 0 Neutral. Face make-up: bronzer – Maybelline City Bronzer in 100 Light Cool, blushers – Essence The Blush in 10 Befitting + Clinique Cheek Pop Pearl blush & highlighter in 05 Ruby Pop, highlighter – MAC Step Bright Up Extra Dimension Skinfinish palette in Light (shade: Freeze!). Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eyeshadows – BH Cosmetics Naughty shadow palette (shades: Meringue + Mulled + Candy Cane + Misbehave + Cheers + Snow Day), mascara – Nars Climax mascara, eyeliner – MAC Studio Chromagraphic pencil in NC15/NW20. Eyebrows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze + Maybelline Brow Ultra Slim pencil in Medium Brown. Lips: Essence lipliner in 14 Femme Fatale + MAC Wild Card lipstick)

Warm colours

Here’s what I wore Monday November 15. This is not a colour combo that I’ve played around with much, but I kind of like it. I think it works because both the red and the yellow/orange are warm colours.

(Jumper – H&M, trousers – Monki, boots – Zara)

Glam

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. You’ll be seeing many make-up products in my Christmassy make-up looks which I haven’t hauled yet. For example, I used the Natasha Denona Glam palette for this eye look, but I won’t be posting the haul featuring it for quite a while.

(Base: primer – Catrice Clean ID Pore Perfecting primer, foundation – Catrice True Skin Hydrating foundation (shade: 004 Neutral Porcelain), concealers – e.l.f. 16HR Camo matte concealers (shades: Light Sand + Fair Warm), powder – Laura Mercier Translucent Loose setting powder.

Eyebrows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze + Maybelline Brow Ultra Slim pencil in Medium Brown. Lips: Urban Decay Gwen Stefani 24/7 Glide On lip pencil in 714 + Urban Decay Vice lipstick in Singe)

It’s that time of the year again

Here’s what I wore Sunday November 14. It’s time my first Christmassy outfit though this one is a bit more toned down. Just as last year, my plan is to post my Christmassy outfits and corresponding make-up looks on the same day so that I’ll get to post all my Christmassy looks before the year is over. This means that I’ll save the outfits and make-up looks from the beginning of July until mid November for now. Stay tuned for a make-up post later on today.
