christmas makeup: glitzy pink

make up look pink sparkle
I feel like you can get away with so much more glitz at Christmas. Makeup, clothing and just life in general can be a lot more sparkly when it comes to the festive season. I try and get away with as much sparkle as I can all year round anyway, but I find with Christmas I could just bathe in glitter and still be socially accepted..maybe.

I thought I would have a play at the weekend with a bit of a sparkly number. I didn’t want to go too OTT, so focused on the eyes.

For this look I used: Benefit Brow Zings // Urban Decay Noise Shadow Pencil // L’Oreal Superstar Super Liner // Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Waterproof Mascara // Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation // MAC Hot Gossip lipstick

Noise is the loveliest shade of pink and applies really bold straightaway. It was in the sale when I brought it and once I got home, I did have a regret moment and wonder when I was actually going to use it. There was a time when all I would wear was bold eyeshadow and black eyeliner (Hello 15 year old Emmy!) but I tend to keep it on the more toned down side lately. I don’t know why though because I love colour and this pencil is amazing, maybe a New Years resolution could be to use more colour in my makeup!

I love this and will definitely be wearing a lot more sparkle in the run up to Christmas!

    Haha I love that Xmas means it's acceptable to wear glitter and crap loads of sequins! That's such a pretty pink colour, I think you can get away with any bright eyeshadow if you pair it with a slick of black liner…right?

      Of course, as long as you have a black liner handy you can wear what you like! 😀
