While I am sure no one is left in any doubt about my love of the festive season I have yet to mention one of the key reasons I love it so much – the chance to dress up! I love getting to work out my outfit, think jewels, bags and shoes and the chance to mix up my make up purse!

So I thought I would share with you some of my party season essentials for this Christmas and New Years!

Now they say our eyes speak volumes – so why not make sure that they are saying what we want them too and not I didn’t have enough sleep or hello panda!


Eyeliner for me is my one item I will take to a dessert island. It’s nearly always a part of my routine but I find with almond shaped eyes that eyeliner likes nothing better to do than slip from my face. So let me introduce you to my favorite eyeliner – Urban Decays 24/7 in Sabbath is a dark blue “you aren’t goingto get me budge” liquid liner. It comes with the brush inbuilt and was very easy to get the nack of creating a thin natural line with easy and something a little more glam with a bit of work. The blue makes green, hazel, brown and blue eyes pop – in facti have yet to see someone who can’t rock this deep rich blue color.


My favorite shadow is by Benefit Cosmetics, their Creaseless eyeshadow is a dream to put on and easy to layer to take you quickly form the office to somewhere a lil more special. For this festive season I am in love with the color Stiletto that I picked up on my recent trip to the states. There is something about the rich purple that just makes me feel festive.


Now for those occasions when you need a lil something extra you can’t look past the Melbourne based Chi Chi Glitter eye liner range. I got given this gift pack last year and I love it. The colors in the kit cover almost every need (although you can buy them individually) and the glitter once dry (about a minute) doesn’t get in your eyes and has a really great color base! it’s crazy the number of compliments a little bit of glitter can produce.

I am also really excited to share with you my splurge purchase from the Chanel Noel 2011 collection – but you will have to hold out until next week, trust me the wait is worth it!
