The Ultimate Christmas Eyeshadow Palette

Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel Palette, £45

Ever since renowned makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury first launched her makeup collection not long ago, I have been eyeing up many of her lust-worthy pieces like money grows on trees. One product that really stood out to me was the Dolce Vita eyeshadow palette which bloggers and celebrities alike have been raving about. So when I got a chance to try out a very similar alternative during my work at The Times, I couldn't contain my excitement. I loved the product so much that I had to share it with you guys. 

The Fallen Angel Luxury Palette is one of the most beautiful festive palettes around in my opinion, and comes from Charlotte's 'The Supermodel Look' limited edition collection. The shades are designed around the concept of a wearable smoky eye, and are bloody beautiful. The colours range from a light Champagney golden hue to a smoky black, with two taupey/bronzey colours thrown in for good measure. This is what makes the palette so genius- it is one of those that you could throw in your bag and take on holiday as it will have you sorted in the day and night-time for casual and heavier looks. You can also use the eyeshadows either dry or with a little bit of water to make them up to three times more intense on the lid. Their quality is unrivalled in terms of pigmentation and texture (buttery and blend-able) and they last well throughout the day. I reckon this beauty would be the perfect gift for any makeup-a-holic, be it your friend, sister, mum or girlfriend. On the other hand, it might just be too gorgeous to give away (I wouldn't blame you...!) You can see how Charlotte uses it in her tutorial here

In other news, (and whilst I've got your attention!) this week has been one of the best I've had in a long time. Working at The Times on the fashion desk, I spent the week doing some of my favourite things involving fashion and beauty and also did some writing for online (one piece can be read here). I met some lovely lovely people, caught up with some old friends and also stayed with my friend Michelle at her fabulous flat in Canary Wharf for a few nights, which was super fun :) Another highlight of my week has to be when I met the new love of my life, Clive. No no, Clive is not my new manfriend. He is even better. He is my friend Rachel's 10 week old Frenchie, who is the most adorable little pup I ever did lay eyes on (follow me on Instagram to see a snap- beautyandtheb). I have been terrified of dogs for a long time, but this little guy and me bonded big time, and now I'm dreaming of the day I can have one (a little puggie) of my own. Dear Father Christmas...
