Christmas Shopping FOTD

Yesterday was my annual Christmas shopping day with my best friend; it's become a tradition, one we've upheld for around the last six or seven years, and one we've continued even since moving away to University and (in her case) getting grown up jobs and becoming Real People. I thought I'd share my FOTD with you all as it's been a while since I've done one. Since I've been ill, I needed to maximise my time in bed (don't I always!) and therefore went for a super-quick and easy to apply face. I also knew that we'd be rushing back and forth across town as we remembered places we'd forgotten to visit, and that I didn't want to have to spend half my day checking my make-up and topping it up. So I went for a low-maintenance ensemble which, with a sweep of powder when we paused for lunch, lasted me all day.

Products used: The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser; L'Oreal True Match Foundation (not sure what shade as it's worn off the label but I think it's Rose Ivory); Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in 01 Fair; Collection 2000 Sheer Loose Powder in 01 Translucent; Sleek Blush in Rose Gold; MUA Pro Brow Kit (review to follow soon!); Stila In The Light Palette (I used the shades second from the left in the top row, and the bottom left); Clinique High Impact Mascara; Jemma Kidd Lipstick in 01 Rose (from a mini palette from TK Maxx, which also contained three eyeshadows and a blusher, all for the bargainous price of £4.99).

And finally, I feel it's only fair to share with you my present to myself; the best Christmas jumper ever! This little beauty cost me £15 from a boutique in town and it's super warm and cosy. You may remember my Christmas jumper post a few weeks ago? It has actually taken me til now to find one which was ridiculous enough for my liking. Have you got your Christmas jumpers yet, ladies? Have you finished your Christmas shopping?
