Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more

Makeup: Mascara: BarryM  3 in 1, Eyeliner: Maybelline Gel, Eyeshadow: Maybelline Color Tattoo
Outfit: Jumper: Run & Fly (, Skirt: Simone Hooper, Shoes: Mel Ice, Nail varnish: BarryM in Lilac Foil 342

Such awful photos for my Christmas Day outfit in my dark hallway (my poor feet have disappeared!) But all good news as Santa delivered a brand new camera that I'm itching to get into use. This jumper and skirt have such a unique feel as I found them in the vintage market at the Clothes Show. The outfit highlights consist of the texture given by the thick knit of the jumper and the skirt fabric, with a simple classic cosy feel. Whilst giving a hint of colour and Christmas novelty in the jumper detailing.

AND for my Christmas day makeup look, if you haven't tried out Maybelline's 'Color Tattoo' in On and On Bronze, then its a must do! Super easy to apply, without any need for blending or priming, as it creates a lovely shimmer finish that lasts all day. The only downside is that the gel texture makes applying eyeliner a little more tricky, my gel liner works best alongside it.

Not sure I could follow my previous two posts in any better way than the holy grail himself...
Sunday was a whirlwind of a day, I was so excited to go to The Clothes Show and have a shopping trip whilst indulging in all the catwalk beauty. To see Henry Holland present the show made me feel giddy with excitement, as its quite clear he's a huge inspiration to me. Then, out of the blue I turned a corner and spotted that trademark hair and glasses. He was wonderful to stay to take pictures, I only wish I could have had a chat with him, but I was too busy containing the fangirl squeals!

Definitely recommend The Clothes show for any fashion or cosmetic fanatics, there's a huge range of products to keep you occupied. My highlight was the vintage stands with mountains of Christmas jumpers to choose from and the only downside is how busy the show is. Looking forward to showing my purchases soon.
