12 Looks of X-mas: #1 - Sugarplum Princess

Hey everyone and welcome back to this little series if you remember it! If you are a long time reader of my blog you'll know I do this series every Christmas time, delivering 12 perfectly festive looks to get everyone in the Christmas mood. I absolutely love doing this series and this year, with working on a make up counter, makes it easier than ever as I can rock my chosen looks to work!

Around this time of year, I start to get obsessed with purples and pinks. They go together so beautifully and feel so girly and whimsical. I teamed up the timeless MAC Cranberry with Urban Decay's Mushroom and when blended together, they created a taupy kind of purple - perfect for the party season.

Is that dot on my lower lash line doing anyone else's head in?! Just me, OK then...
This was so easy to wear and I got a tonne of compliments. I think this cranberry kind of shade is such an easy way to make a look different - instead of grabbing your normal brown in the crease, try using Cranberry - the difference is amazing and so festive!

Because I'm getting back into the swing of blogging, I can assure you that future posts will have my normal break down of products used, but this particular day I completely forgot!
So I wanna ask - are there any specific looks YOU would like to see in this series?? Let me know, I love taking your requests!
