50 Shades Of Christmas

50 shades of christmas


| 50 Shades Of Christmas! |

The festive season is always brimming with seasonal colours that brighten the place up from berries to reds to copper. For today's post, I've rounded up my favourite Christmassy makeup hues to wear during the holiday season.

Rich Berries & Burgundy:
A rich berry hue to coordinate with the mulled wine is a must *insert winking emoji* and my current favourite berry nail polish is Essie Big Spender - a vibrant berry with purple undertones! 

The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague is basically the same shade in lipstick form. Unlike many other liquid lipstick formulas, it's comfortable to wear and I can get a good few hours wear from it. 

For a deeper, vampier burgundy option, Essie Its Genius is the perfect option! It also has little flecks of shimmer in it so it's a subtle way to add some sparkle to your festive party look.

Luminous Champagne & Icy White:
Champagne highlighters are my favourite shade of highlighter to wear during the festivities. My skin has been severely dry and flaky recently so I've been trying to opt for cream/liquid products as much as possible. My current liquid champagne highlighter favourite is the L.O.V Cosmetics Highlighting Drops in No.20 Sunlight Glow {Review}. I blend a few drops on my cheekbones with my Real Techniques beauty blender for a natural dewy look. 

My icy white pick that will transform your lids into a winter wonderland is the Mac Snowball Frostwinked Extra Dimension Eyeshadow

Warm Coppers & Bronzes:
Another eyeshadow favourite from the ethereal Mac Snowball collection is Stylishly Merry, a gorgeous coppery pink shade that has a golden shift to it. It's easy to see why it sold out instantaneously!

If you're feeling bronzey then Stila's Magnificent Metal Liquid Eyeshadow in Smoky Storm is the one for you! A sparkly smoky bronze shade that will make you the belle of the ball at your Christmas party. 

Sparkly Rose Gold Hues:
The By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Frozen Quartz has Christmas written all over it, from the celestial pinky rose gold hue to the dreamy festive gold packaging.

For the nails, Essie Buy Me A Cameo is a great option! A dreamy metallic nude shade that looks rose gold in certain lights - Swoon! 

Seasonal Reds:
Red is the epitome of Christmas and I love sporting a festive red lip at this time of year. I've said it before but I'll say it again, my top pick is hands down Nars Cruella - It's the perfect Christmas red! 

Another Nars red favourite is their lip pencil in Iberico. This one is an orangey-red hue but it's a versatile shade as it works well for this time of year as well as in the summer months.

What are your favourite Christmassy makeup shades?

Love,
Cliona xx
