12 Looks of x-mas: Day 3 - Sugarplums

Hey everyone, back with another look for my Christmas series! I will admit, I struggled on this particular day for inspiration. I didn't really know what to do or what I was aiming for but I really like the outcome regardless! I used purples and golds as I feel they are particularly festive colours, to create a really shimmery eye catching look that's super flattering and perfect for this time of year. I felt the final look kind of lacked something, so I chucked on the tiniest bit of glitter on my inner lid and it really just pulled the look together completely! You can't go wrong with a bit of glitter in the centre of the lid, especially at this time of year! What do you think?











As you can see, I got out my Kat Von D Poetica palette again. I felt the shades really went with MAC Violet and Tan pigments perfectly. I used Tan in the centre of the lid surrounded by Violet and used the darker purples to define the crease. I found I really do like this look and its probably my favourite I have done so far! Just goes to show with no clear plan in mind, you can create something a lot better than when you plan a blog post out eh? :)
Also, you probably noticed the bump in the inner corner of my eye... anybody have any idea what this is? Its not painful, but it doesn't seem to be going? I do hope it goes soon, its rather unsightly! 

I hope you're all enjoying the festive season! If you have any requests for festive looks for me to do, then feel free to leave me a comment below!

  6. Ooh, this is so lovely! I've struggled to combine purple with gold in the past - it didn't occur to me to use the gold as a "beam of light" in the middle of the lid, and I love how it looks :)

    1. Thanks Sarah, I actually think purple and gold go together really well, I think I have probably done one too many gold and purple looks tbh! Lol!

  7. That Kat Von D palette is gorgeous, a lot of palettes have the same colours, but they look really different! The look you have created really makes your eye's pop - gorgeous!
