Can you believe there are only 12 days until the big man in red is coming? My son is so excited, and the only thing he's asked Father Christmas for is a drum. It's going to be fun in my house in the new year! Anyway, eagle eyed readers may have spotted a new badge in my sidebar, if you click it it will take you to British brand MUA's blog, where they're holding a contest each day between now and Christmas eve. Every day their head make-up artist Karla is going to create a make-up look based on the 12 days of Christmas, and every day you can win all of the products she's used for that look. Sounds good to me!
I absolutely LOVE MUA products, they're great quality and so affordable - just £1 for their core range and their pro range is between £1.50-£8. I'm particularly in lurve with the eyeshadows - I now have 5 of their palettes (although my much hyped Heaven and Earth palette has been dropped more than once and is looking a bit sorry for itself...) and quite a few of their individual shades too. Fantastic quality, pretty colours and brilliant every day basics. Their black Kohl eye liner is fantastic and I couldn't be without the pressed powder.
Here's my MUA look for the day - you can pretty much guarantee that if I'm wearing make-up at least one item will be MUA! For this look I used Pressed Powder Shade 1, Glamour Days Eyeshadow Palette, Black Waterproof Mascara and Lipstick Shade 11.
Clearly I look like a twit, but it was the best I could do with a one year old climbing my leg...
So, head over to MUA's blog and check out the 12 days of Christmas comp, which will be up later today! And look out for a Nail Newbie MUA giveaway in the New Year! Lots of MUA goodies up for grabs :)
EDIT: The first look is up now, and it's a nail one so go and take a look!
