All you have to do is put gold and red together. Boom – Christmas.
There’s no better look to go for than a gorgeous glimmery golden eye with a fierce red lip for your Christmas party, Christmas meal or Christmas shopping. After all, makeup is there to be worn for any occasion.
Using some of my stashed away and almost forgotten eyeshadow palettes I created this super golden eye with a ton of drama. I’ve paired it with a bright red lip so that the look screams Christmas, but you could pair this with any lip from pink, vampy purple to nude and it would still steal the show.
I’d like to take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you a very merry Christmas and I’d like to thank you all for the ever growing support and love for my blog. You’re all amazing.
