12 Looks of X-mas: Day 1: Santa Claus is comin' to town!
Hey everyone! Remember this series?! If you're new to Blog of Shadows then welcome to my 12 looks of x-mas series! If you hadn't already guessed it, I'm going to be doing 12 festive looks to count you down to Christmas and honestly, this is my FAVOURITE series of them all, even surpassing Disney! I dunno, something about Christmas means you can get away with almost anything when it comes to make up. I've done this series every single year and have honestly been looking forward to it for months... so lets get started!
I recently got the new Urban Decay Vice 2 palette and instantly when I saw it, I knew many a festive look would be created using it! It has these fabulous rich gold and silvers and lots of smokey sultry shades, so expect to see it a fair few times. I knew my first look would contain the startling silver "Shellshock" and I created an easy party look for those of you hopping off to your x-mas parties (mine has already been and gone unfortunately and sadly I couldn't go as I was working it anyways!). Its a really easy look to do and really sparkly and eye catching, so I hope some of you give it a go :)
As you can see the colours used are marked with a cute little gingerbread man. I used a warm toned brown in my crease as a transition colour just to blend out with so the silver and black wasn't so stark. If you ever find a make up look looks not quite done, this is my favourite trick to complete a look, give it a go! I also included a little gem in the corner of my eye. I'm kinda addicted to gems right now and I just thought it added a bit of somethin' somethin' and made the look a bit more festive! Check back Monday for another Hunger Games look, this time I'm doing District 7 - Lumber! Its gonna get green :)
Are you going to a Christmas party anytime soon? Is this something you would wear?
