Blogmas Week 3: All Good Things Come In Threes

As the proverb may suggest, this is my attempt at three festive - yet not over the top - makeup looks for Christmas. As always, I love basic looks. So this is my interpretation of Christmassy makeup.
Look 1 - Snowflake Eyes
This look was inspired by - you guessed it - snowflakes. First Rimmel Scandaleyes in Nude (£3.99) in the inner corners so MAC's Naked Lunch can cling to that (£10.00). Then a line with Maybelline Master Precise and MAC Smolder (£14.00) on my lower lash line. I 'Christmassed' it up with a red lip: Rimmel Moisture Renew in Rose Passion (£6.49) is bright, yet nourishing.
Look 2 - Naturally Smokey
For my next look I used the Naked Basics Palette (£20.00): Naked 2 all over and under the eye and Faint in the outer corners. To smoke things up I used Rimmel Scandaleyes in Bronze (£3.99). Then in Nude to brighten up the inner corners. I finished with Maybelline Rocket Mascara (£7.99). To match this natural look, I opted for Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple (£7.99). It's pigmented but easy to reapply throughout an evening of stuffing my face with delicious food.
Look 3 - Golden Shimmer
My final look has the beautiful All That Glitters. This went all over with a MAC 239 (£20.00) for maximum color payoff. Then blended with MAC Wedge, also put under the eyes. This makes it look somewhat softer. Again, I finished with Maybelline The Rocket (£7.99). I chose a nude lip, because I want the eyes to stand out. My favorite is Rimmel Kate Moss in 03 (£5.49).

There you go, three Christmas looks! What are you wearing for Christmas?
