Blogmas Day 2 – A Christmas Inspired Makeup Look

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.

What are your favourite Christmas makeup colour combinations? Let me know in the comments!

      Your welcome! It’s my favourite red shade and it goes really well with the ruby woo lip liner!
