WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS: BEAUTY EDITION

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):

I hope you enjoyed this post! If you did, make sure you keep an eye out for upcoming reviews and demos using these products in the next few months. Thank you!

  3. Thank you so much! I love the Hoola Bronzer too and I would definitely recommend the Mac Mineralize Skin Finish as a highlighter - I've only been using it for about a week but I already think it's irreplaceable!
