Christmas makeup for me is all about feeling a little bit more put together and glitzy with my makeup. I wanted to create a more daytime look that could take you into the evening for those unexpected festivities. One that looks natural but also a little bit more special. If I was going to a Christmas party I might have added a little bit more glam to this look such as glittery eye shadow and a more glowy highlight, but I wanted to go for a mid-range dressy vibe. I do feel however that you could add even more of the Tanya Burr cocoa sugar eye shadow shade to create this type of effect so this look is definitely buildable too!
