Before I get into writing this post I just want to make it 100% clear that I am in no way bragging or showing off. I know a lot of people hate it when others share their Christmas presents on social media, however I on the other hand love seeing what everyone else has received from the big red man. I did get other presents, you know: chocolates, clothes and bath smellies. And I did get a few other makeup bits (which I am extremely grateful for) however, I decided to share these certain items on my blog as they are actually the items I asked for, so obviously I love them.

In terms of makeup brushes I absolutely love the Real Techniques brushes. Over the past year I have really got into contouring and highlighting is my favourite makeup step in the morning! Because of this I decided I wanted to give the Sculpting set a go. All I'm going to say for now is that they're probably my favourite makeup brushes of all time. In the new year I am sure I'll get round to writing a review and maybe even a demo. Also, I know they're on offer for around £13 in Superdrug at the moment (even though the website says they're £21 and out of stock...)

After loving the Naked 3 palette which I got for Christmas last year I decided to get another Naked Palette. Because I'm not a massive fan of eye-shadow and don't wear it on an everyday basis I wanted a more neutral, smaller palette and so I decided to got the Basics 2 palette.

Since I am such a huge fan of highlighting, contouring, bronzing and blushing at the moment, I also got...

Benefit Hoola Bronzer:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Series Contour Kit:

Mac Mineralize Skin Finish (Lighscapade):

Sleek Contour Kit (Light):
