FOTD – Christmas Eve

Today I have been getting seriously into the Christmas spirit; seeing family, wrapping presents and I even managed to squeeze in filming some videos for you which will be up on the channel soon ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am sooooo excited that it is Christmas Day tomorrow, both me and all my family have got a lot of time off of work so we have lots of time to enjoy watching some rubbish Xmas TV, playing card games (I am secretly a card shark) and scoffing down homemade chocolate truffles – best times ever!   To visit the fam today I went for an uber simple makeup look, and tried to attempt some ‘eye-opening’ tricks for a change….
Face:
Jemma Kidd Light As Air Foundation in Light/Medium 03
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Sand
NARS Laguna Bronzer
Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Cream in Ice Gold
Eyes:
MAC Espresso Eyeshadow (for my brows)
L’oreal Telescopic Waterproof Mascara
Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
MAC Chromographic Pencil in NC15/NW20 (on the waterline)
Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Cream in Ice Gold (in the tear duct)
Lips:
MAC Hue
Of course the ‘base’ of my makeup is the usual – a mix of Jemma Kidd, Bobbi Brown and NARS. However for the eyes I tried something different, mascara on my bottom lashes! I know – hold the phone! I’ve had the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara for a while now, but dismissed it as something that wasn’t really for me. But in my quest for big puppy-dog eyes I thought I would give this a go, and I have to say I actually quite like the result. The combination of that with my MAC Chromographic Pencil and the Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow in the inner corners really helped to open up my eyes, and is a trick that I could well see me using everyday ๐Ÿ™‚ Right ladies, I guess that wraps this post up! I hope you all have a lovely festive period and enjoy the time with loved ones and of course chowing down on plenty of food! I really am grateful for every single one of you who takes the time to read my blog, so I truly do wish you a Merry Christmas! I’ll see you soon ๐Ÿ™‚ 
Much Love,
Vivianna x

    you have amazing bottom lashes you should wear mascara on them more often, mine are short and stubby and really quite sparse, how annoying ๐Ÿ˜€
