Sisley Christmas Makeup

I made a little video after I had been pulling at my lashes (that fateful week!) to cheer myself up, and I decided that I would go a bit ‘luxe’ and crack out the Sisley products! I love the Holiday palette with it’s wonderful bright blue against the silvery shades, and I decided to do a bit of a crazy eye. Well, perhaps not that crazy compared to some of the makeup looks that you see people creating on YouTube, but crazy enough if you forget that you have it on and catch a bus into town at 11am on a Monday!

Whatever, it cheered me up. The tinted moisturiser (with the usual gasp-inducing price-tag of £58) and the Sun Glow Gel (£47.50) created a really gorgeous, flawless base that would work in all seasons, and the silvery eye colours with a shot of blue reminded me of the evil snow queen from Narnia! All very good fun, and very festive.

Eye shadow palette, £54.50 from Sisley.

    those colours match perfectly with this season..
    I have brown-yellowish eyes,ande I really love turquoise and blue tones, but everybody tells me that with my eyes, earth colours like brown, yellowish or green matches better, and that violet or blue tones are a no-go.. indeed, I tried out a blueish shade from MAC and… it really didn’t match… xD

    what brand of brushes are you using ?

      They are Pout brushes – I LOVE them but Pout hasn’t been running for years now. That’s probably the last time I’ll show them because I want to use brushes that people can actually get hold of!! x

      Hi Fatima,
      I’m 30 and I have been modelling for 10 years. It’s very important for me to stay looking good, so I do buy an incredible amount of products! I also get sent things for review, given masses of things on shoots (lucky!) and get gifted beauty things for birthdays/Christmas!
