I did this look trying out my No7 Christmas gift set and I needed to do it quickly as I needed to get to the shops.  I didn’t realise the colours were so shimmery until I put them on my face! I was determined to stick to the colours and tools in the set to give it a proper trial.

For my face, I applied  Bobbi Brown Illuminating Finish Powder Compact Foundation SPF15 in Honey 5.5 all over my face using my EcoTools powder brush.  I applied the same foundation under my eyes and on my eyelids using the sponge.

I applied the gold eyeshadow all over my lids and up to my brow bone using the No7 Eyeshadow Blend and Contour brush.  Using the same brush, I applied some of the lighter grey in the crease and outer edge of my eyelids.  I then used the No7 Smoky Eyeliner Brush brush to apply the darkest colour along my upper and lower lashlines and in the creases.  I blended the colours together using the Eyeshadow Blend and Contour brush.

I defined my brows using Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Mahogany 10 and my short and stiff-bristled angled eye brush, and finished with two coats of Bobbi Brown Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mascara in black.

Using my No7 blusher brush I swept a little orange blusher onto my cheeks from the Sleek Pumpkin 363 Blusher Palette and then dusted a little foundation over it using my EcoTools powder brush as it was a little too bright.

I finished the look with Benefit Coralista lipgloss.
