Getting dressed up to go out is a real treat and at this time of year invitations come from all directions. School mum night outs, blogger night outs and girly night outs plus others. Now that I am that bit older I know what suits my skin and also what make up looks I like. My preferred look is quite natural and I tend to focus on my eyes rather than my lips. I also love a green eyeliner and often get comments about how fab it looks. I wear Provoc Gel Eye Liner which does not smudge and lasts for hours, it is my make-up must have and a great price at only £10. I would not use anything else now.
This week due to blogging I was in London and on the TV, sometimes I also have photo shoots, and I often do my own make-up. However you all know I like a bargain or freebie too! Therefore I am always looking out for make up samples. I often buy magazines just to get the ‘free gift’ because it is a great value way of trying products. I mix up using some expensive products and some cheaper products. This time of year is great for stocking up as there are many offers on make up sets or samples are given away when you buy products.
This advent I have aso treated both Chloe and myself to beauty advent calendars. I bought the Marks and Spencer one for me and the Benefit one for Chloe. They both offer excellent value for money.
Magic Freebies have put together a celebrity make-up on a budget guide which reveals the where the likes of Beyonce, Zoe Saldana, Taylor Swift get there looks from. They are sharing the penny-pinching beauty must-haves, and you can find out how to recreate these hot looks this festive season.
