Holiday Look: Cool & Metallic

Cool & Metallic Holiday Look

Hi guys! My last holiday look was warm & cozy, so this time I thought I would go cool & metallic to change things up! I love wearing purple so I’d wear this every day, to a holiday party or wherever, but I thought it would fit nicely with the season. I love how different it is from any other holiday look that I’ve pulled together. If this isn’t your cup of tea for a Christmas party, I think it would be perfect for New Year’s Eve as well! Okay, let’s dive deeper into this cool & metallic holiday look!

Holiday Look: Warm & Cozy

Hi guys! As I mentioned earlier this week, I’m trying really hard to get into the holiday spirit since Christmas is face approaching! With that being said, I’m excited to share more holiday looks with you! I did a whole bunch last year and I’m ready to share more. Today I was inspired by the Colourpop Creme Gel Liner in Fast Lane that I recently hauled. I also was eager to bust out my Morphe x Kathleenlights Eye Shadow palette again for you guys because I’ve been wearing it a ton lately and I’m in LOVE. Today I stuck to gold as I feel like that’s a wonderful shade for holiday looks.

Top 5 Holiday Lipsticks

Holiday Lipsticks Christmas

Hi guys! I can’t believe it’s this time of year already. As I write this, I can see the snow banks outside my house. So, in an attempt to try to be festive, I thought I’d share some of my favourite go-to holiday lipsticks. When those inevitable holiday parties and dinners come around, you can bet I’ll be wearing one of these!

NYX | Butter Gloss in Red Velvet

I am not a gloss person, but the holiday season tends to be a glossy, glittery and shiny time of the year. As far as glosses go, the NYX Butter Glosses are great because they pack on sheer to medium coverage and they don’t feel sticky. The shade Red Velvet is a beautiful cherry red and thus earns it’s spot in my go-to holiday lipsticks.

Too Faced | Melted Matte Lipstick in Lady Balls

Liquid lipsticks are everything to me so, it should be no surprise that I’ve got Too Faced Lady Balls on my list of top holiday lipsticks. I gave this lipstick a pretty rave review so it’s also just a favourite in general. Continue reading

Holiday Look #4

P1010902.jpg Hi guys! Welcome to another holiday inspired look! This is the look that I wore to my husband’s work Christmas party last Saturday. My inspiration was to do something that had gold and sparkle in it. Of course, given the nature of this event I wanted to add a red lip as well. Since I did a matte true-red lip in my last holiday post, I wanted to do something a bit different this time. I chose Urban Decay’s Catfight since it leans more on the pink side, but still has some red to it. I also thought the a bold red lip might have been a bit too much with my red dress. All in all, I’m very happy with how this look turned out! Continue reading

Holiday Look #3

Hi guys! I mentioned in this week’s Snapshot Sunday that I had two Christmas Parties that I attended this weekend. My intention was to post these before I left on both nights. However, with getting ready being the process that it is and being short on time, that didn’t happen. So, I am going to post them this week, starting with the first one (Friday’s) today. My apologies in advance for the less than ideal lighting, but I got ready in the evening so the sun was long gone by that time.

Snapshot Sunday

Hi guys! It has been a little chaotic around here so I haven’t been as on top of posting as I would normally like to be. Tis the Season, right? I’m hoping to get things better under control and resume regularly scheduled programming this week!
