the best way to spread christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.
The holiday season. I can't get enough of it! For the last several weeks, I have been writing out Christmas cards, wrapping presents, watching movies, listening to music, and even giving my wardrobe and makeup a seasonal splash. From Christmas sweaters and t-shirts to my makeup.....it seems that everything in my life lately is holiday-themed. And honestly? I like it that way.
One example is my latest makeup look of the day. In addition to my t-shirt (it read: don't get your tinsel in a tangle) and my jingle bell earrings, I wanted to add even more holiday cheer to my FOTD. I was getting ready to help a friend decorate her house - so the goal was to be as festively fashionable as possible. That is why I chose to wear a combination of green and red eyeshadow. It sounds crazy! But somehow, it managed to turn out to be quite wearable.
The products I used for this makeup look were:
- Rimmel Clean Finish Foundation
- Rimmel 3 in 1 bronzer
- Hard Candy Walk The Line Liquid Eyeliner
- Benefit They're Real! Mascara
- NARS Turkish Delight Lip Gloss
- Little Mermaid eyeshadow palette from Sephora.
The colours? A turquoise green with a lighter green layered on top and a redish brown shade blended through the crease. I wanted to take inspiration from classic holiday colours without looking like a total caricature! By opting for slightly deeper tones, I think I was able to accomplish this. Want to find out?

So, that is my holiday makeup look! I had a lot of fun playing with the colours and seeing how I could make the combination easy to wear. Overall, I was really happy with how it turned out.
Are you counting down the days until Christmas? What do you think of this makeup look?
