ROCKIN’ AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE

If you haven’t been following along, I started a FOTD Friday feature a few weeks ago. I bought a fabulous 144 shade eyeshadow palette from Makeup Revolution (for just £10!) and decided to challenge myself to use every single colour in the palette.

I really wanted to try out my green shadows, as they’re some of the ones I’ve stayed far away from until now (along with the blues and neons!).

So I incorporated them into a smokey eye look that would be great for a Christmas party. I combined it with some serious lash power, a nude glossy lip and a bit of light contouring.

Shimmery and perfectly seasonal!

I used the top olive green as base and swept it right into the inner corners of my eyes.

The really darker green I used in the crease. I also used it as an eyeliner on my top lashes, and defined the outer corners and under my eye slightly.

The middle green is a gorgeous very mermaid-y shade and I used it as a highlighter in the centre of my eye.

I’ve never been very good at smokey eyes before and I’m feeling quite proud of this to be honest haha!

  • You look so pretty in the top photo (as you do in the others!) I really like it really suits you, I have a green colour but not attempted to use it yet. I have blue/green eyes so should really. I also saw this palette in Superdrug yesterday but couldnt get it as was in a studio all evening and had nowhere to put it! xxx

    • Thank you lovely! :)

      I’ve always been told to use colours from the opposite side of the colour chart, so for my eyes: oranges and browns and golds. That might be a reason why I don’t usually go for greens and blues, but I think I need to experiment more to make them wearable :) xx

  • Ah I really like the green on you, it’s a colour I don’t use much either! Hope the Christmas party was fab and that the lindt santa was good! I have not cracked into the reindeer just yet, it is sitting under my tree!! xx

    • Thank you lovely! :) I guess it always just feels a bit… I dunno. Old? It’s like blue. I never really wear blue either!!

      You haven’t eaten the reindeer yet?! Wowsers. You have the patience of a saint!!! xx

  • Beautiful colour combo – it really suits you! I’m tempted to eat chocolate for breakfast so there’s no judgement here…

    • Thank you lovely! :)

      I’m reeeeally loving the palette. Makeup Revolution’s eyeshadows are superb for how cheap they are! Plus y’know, ALL THE COLOURS xxx

  • I love this look and the colours are amazing!
    Want to hear a story? I have that same Natural Collection blush that you used. I got it when I was in London in 2012, dropped it on the floor and smashed it a few months after. But I still use it and it’s one of my favourite blushes!

    • I did that with the Peach Melba one! Smashed it but it’s still going strong in my makeup bag haha :)

      I just love how good value they are. And the Pink Clouds is such a great natural shade! xx

  • Christmas is a great time to bust out the looks you wouldn’t normally try, I think! A bit bolder, sparklier, etc. You can’t go wrong!
