To officially kick Christmas 2017 OFF, I really wanted to share something a little more festive and Christmassy on Jellybluesblog – in the form of a ‘GLAM’ Christmas inspired makeup look – that anyone can take inspiration from for upcoming parties, Christmas ‘work do’s’ or even NEW YEAR actually, now you come to mention it!
As always, I will link all of the products featured in this post – as well as information on how you can enter my latest and CURRENT giveaway – right at the bottom of this page…
Whilst selecting all of the beautiful yet slightly more luxurious products, that I wanted to use, to create this Christmassy inspired makeup look, I decided that NOW ‘would be as good a time as any’ to try out my brand new – and very beautiful – Lily England makeup brushes, that were very kindly gifted to me a couple of days ago.
For anyone who isn’t already aware, then I should tell you now, that Lily England is a UK brand who create Insta-worthy products; from makeup brushes to hair brushes, as well as a range of beauty tools, makeup bags, and even headphones?! That are all cruelty-free, vegan-friendly, as well an amazing quality for a budget-friendly price!
As far as this festive themed, Christmas inspired makeup look goes, you know that some warm-toned reds, at least ONE sparkly silver, and some glittery gold had to be involved… because ‘would Christmas really be Christmas if you didn’t have some glittery gold on your face somewhere?!’ I think not.
I would also just like to point out that I have tried to keep this look as accessible as possible, and by that, I simply mean by the products that I have actually used… I tried my best to stay away from limited edition palettes as well as UK or US exclusives, as I know that these aren’t always the easiest of products to get hold off. If you do decide to take inspiration from this look, then always remember that you never have to use any of the products that I’ve mentioned here, as I’m sure there is always a cheaper alternative out there for if you so wish.
The Makeup Brushes
To apply all of the glamorous yet luxurious products to my face, from the fuller coverage foundation to the buttery eyeshadows and that soft swish of pink blush, you know I HAD to use some of my glorious, new, Lily England brushes that I had not yet tried!
I have been so excited to use these brushes and try out the brand, as I have heard a lot of beauty influencers rave about the quality of Lily England makeup brushes…
In all, I can ONLY tell you that I am honestly blown away by the quality of these makeup brushes by Lily England!
They are SOFT, they are smooth and the quality is phenomenal, to say the least. Also, all of my own, Lily England makeup brushes have now been washed, they have been used and they have been washed again, and let me tell you now that not one has shed ONCE… which is amazing because even EXPENSIVE brushes shed!!!
The marble design of the Marble & Rose Gold Collection is also truly unique, as ‘not one will ever be the same’! I love how these sit amongst my other brushes and, of course, how they display on my dressing table… because they are so incredibly pretty in my personal opinion.
The Lily England makeup brushes ALSO apply and disperse product onto the skin, perfectly in my opinion – whether that be one of the face brushes OR one of the beautifully designed makeup brushes for the eyes…
I love how soft yet natural the Fluffy Powder Brush, in particular, applies pressed powders onto my skin and even over already applied foundation!! So often, larger powder brushes, similar to these, can disturb previously applied makeup, like foundation, BUT this one definitely does not. I am so impressed. All of the Lily England makeup brushes that I now own, also, just so happened to work, perfectly, with this look in particular, from with the products that I wanted to use to the soft finish yet wearable glam style that I was hoping for and wishing to achieve!
Overall, I can only tell you that I would definitely recommend checking out the Lily England makeup brush range for quality at an affordable price!!!
