12 days of Christmas beauty

In case you hadn’t already noticed, we’re getting really into the festive spirit right now! As well as all the excessive eating, excessive singing and totally-socially-acceptable excessive pyjama wearing, one of my favourite things about Christmas is all the amazing beauty products! New fragrance sets get released, you’ve got plenty of time to relax in a bath filled with lovely products and all the eyeshadows are beautiful shimmery shades of gold and bronze. I always think that you can’t really go wrong with a beauty themed gift and with your UNiDAYS® discount knocking money off the price tag, you can afford to treat yourself to an early Christmas present or two as well! But with so much choice out there, it can seem a bit overwhelming so I’ve narrowed down a list of all my faves in the style of the 12 Days Of Christmas song (because I’m just that festive).

12 eyeshadow shades
