I love Christmas. It’s the happiest time of year! I start to get excited in November and as I’ve gotten older and started to establish my own Christmas traditions, I realise I’ve grown up to go from “It’s November you idiots! Take those Christmas decorations down!” to quietly putting on a Christmas playlist before Halloween (Fair game after November 5th though – that’s the rule!).
When it comes to Christmas makeup I have a few colour combinations I wanted to try. But the essentials are sparkly eyes and red lips! My first look that is party perfect is a gold and red combination – Who can’t say that this is a very Christmassy combination?
I used a mix of light brown and gold eyeshadows for this look, taken from the Maybelline Blushed Nudes palette, and the Makeup Revolution Iconic Smokey palette, to create a soft, golden eye. The golden highlight was taken from my Anastasia Beverly Hills Nicole Glow Kit, and the red lip is MAC, in the colour Russian Red.
I think this look would be perfect for a Christmas party, and maybe even wearable every day if you’re like me and like a bit of sparkle in your everyday look. The eye makeup is soft, and the red lip could easily be replaced with a nude lip to take some of the drama away.
