The Look: Xmas Picnic in the Park

So what are your plans for Santa-day then, hmm? Me, I’m going to be spending today praying to the good weather gods to bless me with abundant sunshine on the big day, so I can carry out my plans of eating all the food and drinking all the bubbly in a place somewhere grassy and somewhere near a body of water.

It’s going to be a quite a different day from the usual this year, given the hubz and I not returning home to humidity-soaked Brisbane, but staying in Melbourne for our own little ‘orphan’ Christmas. Since my fingers are tightly crossed the weather gods obey my strict demands and I can have my picnic by the bay and not on the living room floor, my festive makeup look is swaying away from the more traditional deep red lippie, matte skin and black eyeliner, and towards a pretty summer look with a few extra special details. (Don’t worry, I’ll break out that red lippie on New Year’s, promise).

    I love the makeup! I’m almost out of Dust in my naked 3 palette and I’m so distressed, it’s the best colour ever and they don’t even sell it separately!

    Hope you have a great Christmas.
