December Favorites

December 30, 2016 , In: Lifestyle , With: 2 Comments

December is always one of my favorite times of the year! I just love everything about Christmas and the holidays, I am always sad to see December end, but of course I am excited for the new year, especially 2017.  I have some very exciting things coming up in the next month, and I just can’t wait, but until then here are some of my favorite things from the month of December!

img_6626First are some of my beauty favorites.  I have been obsessed with the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in the shade Pearl.  I feel like this just the perfect color for holiday looks.  I am really fair, so this is absolutely beautiful pearly-white shade, that gives such an intense highlight, which is basically what I live for!

pearlColourPop Amaze eyeshadow, has been another one of my favorites.  This is such a beautiful rose gold eyeshadow, and I have been wearing it constantly with a red lip over the past month.  ColourPop has some of the best shimmery eyeshadows I have ever used, and this one is no different!  It is so pretty and easy to create a really glam look with this shadow.

It is so beautiful, and it’s really soft as well.  I’ve wanted this brush pretty much since it came out, but I just never got around to buying it, so when I got my Ulta coupons this month, I decided to treat myself to this beauty… Merry Christmas to me!

img_6632I have also been loving two Essie polishes.  The first is the shade Really Red and the second is the shade After School Boy Blazer.  Really Red is just the perfect red shade, and it was great for Christmas time. After School Boy Blazer is a beautiful navy shade, it looks almost black on the nails, but I love dark colors like these, especially in the wintertime, so I was wearing this color all month long.

bootiesI have also been loving these booties.  I actually got these last spring, at the end of the cold weather season, so I really haven’t been able to wear them much, until now.  But they are the perfect boot!  I like that they have a little bit of a heel on them, but it’s not too high, so they are still super comfortable and easy to walk in.
