Feeling Festive? A Christmas Makeup Look

Red and Greek Makeup Look - Festive Makeup - Christmas Makeup

Just a couple of weeks ago I posted a smokey metallic makeup look that I wore to my husband’s work Christmas party.  By the time my work party rolled around, I was ready to mix it up.  I wanted to play with some colour and ended up with a very intense, bold and festive makeup look.

How about you, are you being adventurous with your makeup this holiday season?

I really hope you all like this fun makeup look for Christmas!  After all there is really only one time of year that this makes any sort of sense at all and that is right now, during the holidays!  I’m sure some people would argue that there is no time of year that this look makes any sense haha…but I had a lot of fun with it regardless and I do believe that is the point!!  So make sure you remember to have a little fun too. 😉

Thanks for reading!

Time for Pin-Up

Pin-Up Makeup

By now you should all be able to tell that I love to do a bit of experimenting and try different things from time to time.  I like to stretch my comfort zone and push my boundaries…and other people’s boundaries for that matter, as far as they’ll let me anyways.  But the latter is not what I will be posting about today.

Yesterday was my work’s annual Christmas party.  All the people that you see 260 days out of the year transform into different versions of themselves.  They dress up, they spend extra time on their hair and makeup, they hide their glasses and they make their entrance with their other halves in tow.  Christmas parties are sort of a weird creature, a little awkward, a little stilted.  You make pleasant conversation, you meet some new people.  You drink just enough to loosen up, but you are always a little weary of having one too many and being that person that the stories around the office surround until the next big corporate event when someone else has a chance to embarrass themselves.
