I don’t love Christmas, because the day was always perfect and lovely in my life. Though for the most part, it was. I know Christmas is a tough holiday for many and it would be for me too, if I didn’t make it my own.
I guess I love Christmas, because of my routines. I have a timetable for the whole day, yet it feels like the most day off than any other day in the year. It always feels like a special day – a day where I’m allowed to just be. This week is dedicated to spending a lot of time in my red pyjamas, eating a lot of chocolate, watching a ton of movies and seeing my friends and family. I know it’s gonna sound super cheesy, but I feel the Christmas spirit. Whatever that is. Love? I guess. I’m already feeling it.
So from the bottom of my heart, I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas.
I hope you get to spend it however you wish.
P.S. You’ll find a tutorial to this black smokey eye on my Instagram Highlights.
I’m not making many New Year’s resolutions, but here’s one. I want to create more makeup looks, show my creativity and really get better at it. I’ve already started to share more makeup videos and tutorials on Instagram, and I will keep doing tutorials here too, but I feel like I could do even more. I’m already visioning another version of this look, for example. But! I want to document my progress. That’s why I post things that I’m not necessarily always 100 % happy with. It’s so easy to see the mistakes – especially for me. Always striving for better and better. So maybe the real challenge is to push myself to get better, but enjoy the journey as well.
I was thinking that today and remembered that I really wanted to create this look last year, but didn’t. Well, here I am, 20.12.19 – just in time to post this before Christmas.
Christmas lights makeup tutorial
- Draw a black line on your face using an eyeliner or a black pencil. That acts as the strings to your Christmas lights.
- Draw colorful balls on the strings – as the lights.
- Contour the balls a bit using a cool toned bronzer. This helps to make the lights look more 3D.
- Finally add some light to the balls with some white. You can also add glitter to them to make the sparkle!
As for the products used, I used mellow cosmetics black liquid liner for the strings and face paint for the lights. I contoured with Hoola Bronzer and added Urban Decay’s Distortion glitter liner as glitter.
