I actually cannot believe that this is the last day of Blogmas 2016, I am quite sad about it to be honest! This month has flown by and the run up to Christmas has been so quick. Anyway, for the last post of Blogmas I thought I would write about Christmas Eve and some traditions that my family and I have.
I’m not going to lie but during the day of Christmas Eve I do absolutely nothing, and I love it. I have been all cosy on the couch watching my favourite Christmas films and catching up on Pretty Little Liars (which I only started watching a few months ago and oh my god I’m obsessed). I also ate way too many M&S winter berry and prosecco flavoured crisps. These crisps are the most delicious things ever and I am going to have to stock up before they stop selling them after Christmas! They are even covered in sparkly little stars.
I also like to have a chilled bath and pamper time on Christmas Eve to relax an prepare myself for the next day! I used the LUSH Father Christmas bath bomb, which smells so Christmassy and is very colourful to really get you in the spirit. I also added some of the Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay bath oil to make my skin extra soft. I used my Emma Hardie cleansing balm to refresh my skin and make sure it is looking as good as possible for Christmas Day.
I have been so bad this year at keeping up with my chocolate advent calendar! I always forget to open it and I have been weeks behind. But, I suppose it is quite a good thing because now on Christmas Eve I am left with loads of chocolate to eat! However, I have not missed a day when it came to opening my M&S beauty advent calendar. I love everything that I got in it, especially the Emma Hardie cleansing balm, the Josh Wood hair oil and the Eyeko eyeliner. Beauty advent calendars are literally the best idea ever, because who doesn’t want to wake up to a new beauty product every day? I still have one more box to open tomorrow too!
I did a Christmas Eve makeup look too! I went for a copper/cranberry eye using some of my favourite eyeshadows and pigments. I also went back to using the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation, which I haven’t used in ages, and I forgot how much I love it! Here is a list of all the products I used:
Hourglass Veil Primer
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation – 5.25
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer – NW20
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer – Custard
Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow – Medium Brown

I have enjoyed doing Blogmas so much, I hope to do it again next year! It has been hard work as I have been writing posts in advance to make sure they are uploaded in time, and trust me it is a lot of content to write and come up with! But it has definitely been worth it because now I can look back at the posts and remember all the products I was loving and things I did during the run up to Christmas 2016. Thank you for reading my festive posts and I hope you have enjoyed them!
