BLOGMAS, My Go To Christmas Makeup!

Hello my loves, hope your well. 

It’s that time of year were office parties, family gatherings, nights out and celebrations are happening which means one thing, you need to be glam…right? 

For today’s post I thought I’d show you my go to Christmas makeup looks which I absolutely love to wear during the festive season.

Everything I use in this post will mainly be drugstore or a reasonable price as this time of year is extremely expensive for everyone so drugstore prices are exactly what you need whilst being on a budget. 

If your struggling for ideas or need inspiration I really hope this post helps you in some way and you like my go-to looks. I’d say they’re pretty simple to re-create for celebrations. The festive periods are the time to glam up and feel good about yourself, let your hair down and celebrate. 

The majority of the items I’m using today are from these three shops below: 

I’d highly recommend checking them out if your struggling to find the perfect festive makeup. They’ve got amazing products which you’ll fall in love with. 
So my first go to makeup is this copper eye, bronzed skin and nude lip  which I absolutely love! I feel like this is a look will go with many winter outfits and is perfect for your Christmas parties. It’s so simple yet so beautiful on the eye. if you have hooded eyes like myself this is a perfect look to widen your eyes and make them pop. The bronzed skin is essential for me during the winter as I’m ultra pale and what better way to top off a look than a glitter lip?

My next look is a quick and easy golden glitter eye with a bright red lip. A winter essential I would say!

This is a look which I do when I’m in a rush but I want to have some glam.

These are my two main Go-To Winter Makeup Looks! I absolutely love how these turn out on me and I know they will suit a wide variety of skin-tones, textures and features. These will look beautiful with whatever you wear, obviously you can chop and change parts of these looks to go with whatever your most comfortable with. I’m very out there with my makeup sometimes but I wanted to share these two looks as they’re a lot more toned down as I know not everyone is comfortable with vibrant colours etc. 

Lastly, I wanted to share with you a couple of eye looks I’ve also fallen in love with recently, these are a little different to my looks above. These are still both very wearable, quick and easy to do, go with so many outfits and are defiantly Christmas party material. 
This one is a matte brown lid with a matte brown eyeliner, a golden glitter lashline/inner corner and a very highlighted brow bone!

{please excuse the eyebrows as when I done these eye looks I hadn’t had them shaped or tinted}

I really hope these makeup looks inspired you in some way for the holiday season, it’s crazy how quickly it’s coming round! Christmas is a certainly a time to go absolutely crazy with the glitter, trying out tons of new makeup and making yourself all glam as it is “the most wonderful time of the year!” 

I’m in no way a makeup artist or a profession but I love playing around with makeup and trying to create new looks, I am a beginner so I’m not the best but hey, I’m giving it a go haha. 

I hope you enjoyed today’s post and your loving #blogmas!

Sending tons of love to you all as always,
