Hey loves,
Welcome or welcome back to another post. Today I want to show you some Christmas makeup looks that I’ve created for the last couple of weeks. It’s either colourful and editorial or glam and classic. Everyone can choose their preference. Alright, let’s go!

Let’s start with the more glam and classic looks. I always use a lot of colour for my Instagram looks and I never wear eyeshadow on the daily. However, the holidays are a period that deserves a bit of love and neutral shades. I love to wear glitter during the holidays. It gives a special touch to your makeup and makes it look more festive. Here are some neutral but festive looks that I created!

Soft Halo Eye with Multi-Dimensional Glitter

Nabla The Secret Palette (Contigo, Ghibli, Mea Culpa, Play Hard, Hypersensual)

This is a look for the people that want a bit of smokiness and a lot of glitter. Play Hard and Hypersensual are such a good combination and create the most beautiful multidimensional blue and gold glitter. It’s hard to see on the pictures but it’s stunning in real life.


Soft Glam Glitter Liner (inspired by Allana Davison)

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam (Rustic, Orange Soda, Cyprus Umber)
Stila Glitter & Glow in Kitten Karma

This look is inspired by one of Allanarama (or Allana Davison) Lanmas videos (video here). It’s a beautiful look with the matte shades on its own but the glitter liner adds something extra. I’m actually thinking about wearing this for New Year’s eve! It’s so lovely, glam but still quite natural. Perfect for the holidays!


Blue Snowflakes Cut Crease

Bperfect Cosmetics Carnival XL Pro (Showboat, Mood, Make Waves, Why Though?)

This is a little bit more editorial. Just a little haha. However, I really love this look and it’s perfect if you love colours and are a very bold person. I love the little snowflake and this look in general, haha.


Typical Christmas Colours

Colourpop Just My Luck & Main Squeeze palette

If you want a look with all the typical Christmas colours like red and green and gold, I think this can be a winner. I love the negative space and the combination of red and green. This screams Christmas to me, does it for you?

That’s it for some of the Christmas looks I’ve created this year! I hope you enjoy all of them. What are you wearing for the holidays?
Lots of love and see you next time!
