gold & silver

I do admit to being a bit of a makeup junkie. One of my favourite go-to makeup brands is Estee Lauder. Back in May this year, I was lucky enough to get my hands on the very last limited edition Pure Colour eyeshadow palette in Wild Violet. This palette is perfect for the festive season as it features five eyeshadows which contain shimmery shadows in gold, silver and deep purple, as well as matt shadows in taupe and fawn.

Pure Colour 04 Wild Violet

Earlier on in the week, I attended a special graduation ceremony for the grade sixes at the primary school where I work. I decided to go for a more celebratory look, featuring gold & silver eyeshadows. I used my trusty Lancome Le Crayon kohl eyeliner in noir and the fabulously intense faux cils mascara by Chantecaille, also in black. I cannot live without this mascara. It's the creme de la creme!





As my eyes were quite intense, I left the lips fairly nude and chose to wear my Estee Lauder Signature lipstick in Venetian Rose. My holy grail foundation (as featured here) is Chanel's Vitalumiere, along with the blush and bronzer universal.

 
The night called for my trusty LBD. You can never go wrong with a little black dress! I accessorised it with my favourite pearls. Chanelling Madame Chanel, I felt ever so glam and ready to celebrate the evening. The makeup seemed to suit the occasion perfectly. It was a night to remember for sure!

What's your favourite party look for the season?

  3. Thanks for your comments Alexandra & Rachel.
    Red lips & lined eyes do look amazing, especially with false eyelashes.
    Have a beautiful Christmas!
