As we all know, December is officially *the* party season due to all those Christmas work and friends parties and of course, New Year’s Eve at the end of the month. I’m the kind of person that gets way more excited about dressing up my makeup than actually dressing up with outfits and I always like to switch up my makeup to be a little be more than I would on a daily basis. Today I thought I’d share some of my favourite party picks!

I mentioned in my November favourites that I barely wore any makeup throughout the month as I was so busy and I really want to change that for December. I feel like if you don’t make the most of autumn/winter/festive makeup then it’s a complete waste! I’m super busy again this month but with some fun festive things, rather than just sitting inside working and I’m determined to get out as many red festive lips, big bold lashes and copper eye looks as the month will hold. So without further ado let’s rummage through my December’s very festive makeup bag.

I’ve been to a fair few blogging events in my time and my favourites are often the Christmas ones, and last week I went to one of the most festive ones yet! To celebrate the launch of the M&S Beauty Advent Calendars, M&S teamed up with Biscuiteers to bring us a gingerbread house making workshop. Yes, that is as great as it sounds. The calendar this year has been inspired by a gingerbread house, so not only did we get a house to decorate and eat but one full of beauty goodies too. Now I vlogged the event amongst other things that day so head below to see my vlog and photos of the event and calendar!
