Festive Make Up and Home Haul

Last night after finishing my uni work, I decided to dedicate my whole evening to watching Tanya Burr's Vlogmas videos from last year! For those who don't have a clue what I'm talking about here is the first one, though I warn you they are very addictive and will result in premature festivity!

So with my Christmas spirit arriving at least a month early, I got up especially this morning to pop into town and buy a few festive bits! I had a huge list of things I wanted to get that revolved around some wintery make up (my cosmetics are far too summery right now) and some cosy home pieces to make my room a little more seasonal.

And here are my spoils! Not bad for an hour's work and less than £40!

Red knitted cushion, Cargo, £6; red mug, Cargo, £1.50; Christmas candle holder, Cargo £3; Rimmel Lasting Finish foundation in 303 True Nude, Boots, £7.99; Maybelline blusher in Flash Plum, Boots, £5.29; hair grips, Poundland, £1; Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me, Boots, £2.99; Maybelline Eyestudio eyeshadow in 105 Rose Tint, Boots, £4.09; 17 trio eye shadow in Enchanted Smoke, Boots, £5.49; Natural Collection lipstick in Autumn Glow, Boots, £1.99

Luckily for me there were a fair few offers on (hence the masses of Maybelline purchases) so it was even cheaper than I listed! Here is a close up of all the make up as well as a few close ups and swatch shots.

I thought I'd use an Instagram Collage programme to show you certain bits in daylight and when it's a bit darker as I think lighting can make such a difference to how a product looks. And finally here is a picture of my room with my brand new snuggle cushion!

I realise it's much to early to be this excited about Christmas but I figured it's not too long until Halloween and once that's over I can be legitimately festive! Now I just need to avoid my stash of Christmas films for a week.

Are any of you getting festive already? I'd love to know if I'm the only one getting into the Christmas spirit early or if any of you have any autumnal make up recommendations! Let me know in the comments section below if there are any products you're loving that I should try :)
