Christmas Sparkles!

Hi Beauties, still indecisive about your Christmas outfit? Looking for some ideas? Need some inspiration for your hair and make-up? I will try to help you out…

Today, as promised on Instagram, showcasing two Christmas outfits. I didn’t go for the standard Christmas colors, yet both the outfits add that festive twist to the occasion perfectly!

Moreover, I decided to give you not only my outfits for Christmas, but also an in-depth make-up and hair guide, at the end of each outfit, to achieve the entire look.

Let’s get straight into it 🙂

FIRST OUTFIT

This hot pink dress by Karen Millen instead of red dresses is a good alternative when it comes to Christmas dinners. I was bored wearing and seeing red everywhere, every year… However, I remained with some touches of gold, as I wore my choker and long necklace from Forever 21. This look I wanted it to be simple, elegant and yet suitable for a nice Christmas dinner, so I added S. Ferragamo suede nude heels with chained gold to complete the outfit!

Make-up

I did my base as I would regularly do – if you want to see how I do it, and which products I use – please let me know by commenting in the comment box below 🙂

For this first look I added sparkles from the Pretty, fun and fearless Ciaté Palette – colors: Dainty and on top Vaycay. In the crease I went in with Caregiver and Dreamer from the Tartelette Fall Palatte. To complete the eyes I added a thin eye-liner line by Marc Jacob and of course my all time favorite mascara by L’oreal.

Eventually to complete the look I went for some blush by the Tarte Color Wheel in the color Mod and highlighter by ABH Glow Kit on the tops of my cheeks. To pull it all together I wore Huda Beauty’s lip contour in the color Gossip Girl 🙂

Hair

I washed my hair, added some of the Wella Flex Full & Thick (4) mousse and blow dried it using my fingers. Then I went in with my Jose Eber Curling Wand and curled it.

As you can see, the second look is a black-on-black outfit, with little details to suit the occasion. I went for a simple black jean by Levi’s and a black sweater with shine little sequences. The reason I bought this sweater at Shein was because of the deer’s red nose, instantly in love with it! Then, I went for a sparkly hair-band and spike footwear by C. Louboutin – my favorite, favorite designer when it comes to footwear! 🙂 Hoorayy, to those who guessed it right on my Instagram & Thanks hubby for the perfect birthday gift.

Make-up 

I left most of my face as is already was in the first look. The only parts I changed were my eyes and lips.

For the eyes I used Marry the Night by Morphe on 2/3 of my eye lid and in the crease and outer 1/3 I used Queen Bee from the Pretty, fun and fearless Ciaté Palette. Moreover, I added a thicker eyeliner than the first look. Next, for my lips I went for the Ravageur 03 by Tom Ford  and absolute loved it as it added that hint of red, which was also visible in the entire outfit.

The red lips, the red nose on my sweater, the red sole of my footwear! 🙂

Hair

Exactly the same at for the first outfit, I just added a hair-band. Again, if you want to see the way I curl my hair, please visit: Bounce your Hair, it adds volume, texture and just makes you soooo ready for the festive days!
