Two Christmas Days....

I was fortunate enough to experience 2 Christmas Days this year and thought I would try out two different looks ...

Christmas Day Number One

This was held on Saturday the 18th of December at my Mother In Law's house - She was flying off to Ireland for the Christmas break but didn't want my little boy, not to mention the whole miss out over here.

Snow was forecast but for some reason we thought it would be inconsequential and set off on our journey. 15 minutes into it and driving on the M25 down some snow came and by the time we had exited the Motorway it was descending thick and fast.

The journey slowed significantly and around us people were having difficulty driving, we witnessed buses covered in snow, cars struggling to climb hills, people getting out of cars and pushing them and others fighting to maintain control.

It had to be bad.... Brent Cross Shopping Centre closed for the first time in its 34 year history!

We were lucky, we had no hills to climb and the traffic appeared to be going in the opposite direction. Our hairy, touch and go, journey lasted 3 hours, one that usually only takes 40 minutes.

We made it though and spent the rest of the day exchanging presents and enjoying food!

My Look

I chose to focus on my eyes and kept my lips neutral

What I used -

Foundation - Lancome Teint Miracle in 01
Lips - No7 Nude from the A/W limited edition collection
Cheeks - LilyLolo Clementine Blush
Eyes - Korres Sunflower & Primrose Eye Shadow in Gold
            Frontcover Cosmetics To Go - Black Spark
            Avon Glimmersticks Diamonds Eye Liner in Twilight Sparkle
            L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara in Black

Primers - Benefit Stay Don't Stray and Korres Silicone Free Colour Organic Face Primer
Christmas Day Number Two 

This was held on the actual day - 25th December. The much anticipated 'more' snow failed to thankfully materialise but the cold weather meant that ice on the roads hadn't thawed, much care had to be taken when driving. Not everybody holds this view however, and some people still drive as if it is a sunny day in warm Summer.

We had a fab day , a great Christmas dinner and even more presents opened, we even managed to indulge in Baileys, Sherry, Wine and Hot Chocolate, marshmallows and cream!

My Look -

This time I chose to make the focus of the day my lips  - I think I succeeded!
