Have Yourself a Berry Little Christmas

During the summer I love peachy-pink shades for my blush and lips and bright nails but as I slink into the colder months I prefer hibernating with deeper colours like berry and plum.

Today I thought I'd feature a What's On My Face - the Berry Edition!

My base remained the same - Bourjois' Healthy Mix Serum but to mix things up I switched my go to blush (Benefit's Coralista) with the NARS Multiple in Riviera which looks like a true pink in the bullet but applies slightly more berry toned across my cheeks.

Next up I swapped my Urban Decay Naked Palette *gasp* for the Sleek i Divine Palette in Storm for the two bottom left-hand shades which show up on my lids as a deep plummy bronze and a light shimmery-gold berry shade respectively which I think are fittingly festive. To finish my eyes I add a little liquid liner with 2True's Effortless Eyeliner.

For my lips Revlon's ColorBurst Lip Butter in the shade Berry Smoothie has been my absolute favourite throughout the Autumn/Winter months. It's easily wearable as you can dot on a little and blend it out for a more subtle lip look or you can apply a thick layer for very berry lips!

Finally, for my nails I've turned back to my old faithful winter shade from Barry M in the colour Raspberry. It's a lovely deep pinky-red berry colour and as always (with Barry M) the formulation is great!

What merry berry colours will you be rocking this Crimbo?
