The Christmas Dance

A Christmas tradition in Goa is ballroom dancing. All my friends and I go to this after midnight mass. The dance starts around 1am and usually ends around 8 am and is loads of fun!

I wore this gorgeous J.Crew silk chiffon dress to the dance. I absolutely love this dress. The material falls amazingly well and the flare lower half of the dress comes to life when you dance! The top of the dress is fitted with a ruched band around the wait. The strap loops through a keyhole in the halter top giving the dress just the right amount of elegance!

For my makeup I started with The Body Shop Vitamin E serum and moisturizer. These are my two favorite winter products. They keep my skin feeling smooth, soft and moisturized without making it oily! I followed this with The Body Shop Primer Matt It.

I am using The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Compact Foundation. The great thing about this foundation is you don’t need to follow it up with the compact powder. For my cheeks and brow bone I have used the Benefit Watts Up highlighter. Then I added in MAC Mineralize blush in ‘Love Thing’ to my cheeks and blended it all in.

This look goes really well with red lips! I am using a MAC lip pencil in ‘Brick’ to define my lips and its filled in with MAC Cremesheen in ‘Dare You’.

For my upper lid I have used MAC liquid liner in ‘Boot Black’, the Superslick liquid eyeliner in ‘Nocturnal’ for my lower eyelid, Clinique mascara and The Body Shop Baked eyeshadow in ‘Copper’.
