With Christmas just around the corner, I thought I'd squeeze one little festive blogpost in all about Christmas Makeup! One of my favourite parts of this time of year is how I get to do my makeup almost every night, usually to drink some kind of bubbles. I thought I'd share some of my favourite picks for the season.
If there's one time of year to wear red lippy, it is Christmas. I love colour co-ordinating my lipstick to things, so it's an even bigger win when I get to co-ordinate to a whole holiday. I love the pinky reds, deep reds and blue-toned lipsticks for the period. The two photographed are MAC lipsticks, in D for Danger and Ruby Woo. The deeper the red, the better! I've recently been given the So Marilyn lipstick by Charlotte Tilbury as well, and I am LOVING that for the evening. Don't forget to line your lips beforehand to make your lipstick last longer!
Glittery Smokey Eyes
I love going all out on my eyes at Christmas time! I am all about the golds and reds on my eyelids and then darker, matte colours to smoke out the crease. I've photographed The Balm Nude Dude and the first Urban Decay Naked palette here. I love the red, cranberry and purple shades of the Nude Dude palette and of course, Half Baked in the Naked palette is perfect for Christmas. The bolder, the better.
Apart from lipstick, nothing completes a look quite as well as false lashes! Although I wouldn't advise going HUGE with lashes, no one wants to look tacky, but I am a fan of big ones. I love the Ardell wispies lashes, especially with a bit of mascara on! I love a fluttery lash to pair with my smokey eye.
That concludes my festive blogpost! Hope you liked it. What are your festive picks?
