BLOGMAS – DAY 8 – Christmas makeup looks

Hey guys,

I’m so sorry this post is going up so late! Hope you enjoy it just as much!

Today’s post is a few Christmas makeup looks that I did yesterday.

(Prewarning: I’m no MUA so please don’t judge as these were first attempts and the lighting was poor so I apologise beforehand)

Christmas look 1

What I used:

  • Urban decay Smoky palette (grey on outer crease)
  • Urban decay Electric pressed pigment palette (silver glitter)
  • Nyx holographic glitter pigments & glitter primer
  • Urban decay Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner

(Can you tell I love urban decay?)

How did I do it?

  1. I used a light grey as the transition shade
  2. I went in with a darker silver/grey to do the outer crease
  3. I applied the silver glitter on my eyelid
  4. Put a small bit of the glitter primer on top
  5. Used a flat brush to apply the glitter pigment
  6. Using the white eyeliner I drew the ‘snowballs’ under the eyebrow

How did I find it?

This was just a random idea that came to my head, it was quite simple and didn’t take me long at all! It’s actually my favourite out of the three looks I did.

Christmas look 2

What I used:

  • Nyx elements eyeshadow palette: Earth (green outer crease colour)
  • Urban decay moon dust palette (green glitter)
  • Urban decay heavy metal glitter eyeliner (gold glitter)
  • Urban decay razor sharp eyeliner (white & green)

How did I do it?

  1. I used the green colour from the Nyx palette as a transition colour
  2. I went on top of this with the green glitter shade from the UD moon dust palette
  3. I used a lighter green shade from the Nyx palette on my eyelid
  4. I drew the wing with the razor sharp eyeliner (white)
  5. I then applied the gold heavy metal glitter eyeliner over my eyelid
  6. Then with the green UD razor sharp eyeliner I went over the white eyeliner with stripes

How did I find it?

This again I completely guessed and experimented, for my first attempt I’m quite proud however there is PLENTY room for improvement. It did take longer than the first look but not by much!

Christmas look 3

What I used:

  • Urban Decay naked heat palette (red outer crease and eyelid)
  • Nyx copper glitter pigment & glitter pigment

What did I do?

  1. I used a medium red tone as the transition shade
  2. I built on this using a darker red
  3. I used a lighter red on my eyelid
  4. Using a small drop of the primer I spread this on the lid and applied the red glitter pigment

How did I find it?

I got inspired for this by a look on Pinterest

I found it really simple to use but it didn’t turn out quite as good as I expected but with practice I’m sure I’ll improve!

If you would like to purchase anything I’ve used in this post here are the links to Urban Decay & Nyx‘s websites

So that’s it for today’s post! I know that the makeup looks weren’t the highest of standards but I’m still learning! I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and maybe even take a bit of inspiration from it!

Thank you for reading as always!

Love, Jess x
