okay. festive blog posts start now. i already started decorating my flat and i’m beyond ready to transfer my festive feelings on this blog so here we go and i hope you enjoy christmas 2016 with elena. obviously all the christmas party make up is a reason why i’m so excited for december and to be honest, i’m already planning my make up looks for some events i have going on and i love it. all the gold and all the glitter is one of the reasons why christmas make up excited me so much. even though i really like doing a full face of make up all year round i feel like very glittery eyes are perfect for this time of year and the only time to to rock them as much as you can. if you want to go for more affordable glitters, i highly recommend primark make up for that. its so cheap and works and since i don’t do glitter on a regular it just works for me. i hoard eyeshadow palettes which is no secret and my friends like to gift me make up as it is. the mac holiday collection two years ago was such a dream which is why one of my besties treated me to the keepsakes beige eyes palette. its such a cute and small palette, perfect on the go and it has the perfect nude but also very shimmery eyeshadows. its perfect for holiday make up looks and the quality of the shadows is insanely good. i always get it out as soon as decmber rolls around. for bases, i have two favourites which can also be worn on their own. one is by kiko. its a creme crush eyeshadow in 01. very affordable and such a lovely champagne colour and the other one is a bit more high end much more dark and smokey and its one of the by terry ombré blackstars in misty rock. both of them work so well and if you are looking for a very special gift, the blackstars are amazing. obviously nails are very important to me and i’m actually getting my nails done in a bit. my favourite glittery combo at the moment is buy me cameo and a cut above by essie. they are just perfect.
are you excited for all the festive make up and do you have some favourites for this time? please ke me know.
