Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas

a few days ago i started getting all the decor ready to make my place look extra festive and today i'm blasting christmas music and i even started to decorate the place. to some it might be a bit early but i love christmas just way too much to only have a christmassy apartment for a month plus all the fairy lights make every room look extra cosy. i also can't wait to embrace the festive make up. its tie to whip out all the red lips, gold nails and glitter. i just can't wait and i already have some perfect make up items in my collection and since i'm in such a festive mood, i thought it would be fun to share them with you.

first off all, red lips. a must for me on a christmas party. i love mac russian red all year round as it is the perfect cool toned matte red but to make it extra festive i like to add a gloss on top. my favorite has to be the the mac pro longwear lip glass in driven by love. its the perfect match for russian red but it adds the perfect shimmery gloss and its not sticky in the slightest which is the biggest plus in my books. for the right amount of glitter on my eyes i like to go for a creamy base. the kiko creme crush eye shadows had been my obsession the past year and the shade 05 is such a beautiful glittery silver/taupe. it catched the light so nicely but as it is a cream product its fuss free and works every time. for a loose glitter/pigment i like to also go for kiko ones. they are super affordable but have such great quality. this white glittery one looks like snow and is perfect for winter. its the shade 18 white gold. last but not least i like to have some gold on my nails. essie buy ma a cameo has been my favorite for a long time. its super pigmented and always looks amazing. what are your favorite festive make up items? i'd love to know.



  1. I totally agree - for me, the festive season is epitomised with rich reds and sparkles - so this edit is completely up my street! I've still get to try Russian Red by MAC, I definitely want to pop it on my Christmas lust-list to get hold of it! x
