The other day we had a big sale in the store I work at. It was of course a Christmas sale and I knew I was going to be forced to wear a ridiculous Santa Claus hat, so I wanted to do something a little bit Christmassy. I had been planning on wearing my new green lipstick from Muylinda Collection, but I decided that it might be a little bit much. Also, it isn't the best shade of green for Christmas.
Instead I grabbed one of my favourite eyeshadows, Makeup Forever's #99, a bright scarlet red. I put that on the outer 2/3 of my eye not going above the crease. I darkened the crease a little bit with MAC Carbon and filledmy inner corner and inner1/3 of my eye with MAC's Chillproof. I lined my eyes with Sigma's Boost eyeliner and added marcara and that was it! I kept the rest of my face pretty plain.
Sorry for the hurried pictures. I woke up late for work that day and only had about half an hour to get ready, so I literally took the pictures seconds after brushing my teeth and before I had even found a proper shirt. I swear I am wearing a tank top in these photos though. My bra straps are just thicker than the other straps. I wish I had had longer to do my eye makeup and make it a bit more dramatic, but I still like how it turned out. I am wearing blush too, it was just pretty subtle and the camera didn't seem to pick it up much. I also wish I had found a good lipstick to go with it but I ran out of time. I ended up putting on a nude lipgloss from BH Cosmetics that was lying in my purse on the way to work.
And on a very unrelated note: None of my Black Friday things are here yet! Whyyyyy? I made a handful of purchases before and around Black Friday, including a book I really want to get since I already finished the first in the series, and nothing has arrived! Well, the dress I purchased from Modcloth arrived at my parents house (I had issues last time they tried to ship here) but I still need to go pick that up from them. Other than that I have received nothing yet though and it is driving me crazy! Almost nothing I ordered has a tracking number either, except one package that only seems to update every few days... Why must shipping to Canada take so long??? Ok, I promise to stop complaining now. I'm hoping that when I get home from work tonight I will find something waiting for me.
I hope you liked my second Christmas look! How are you getting into the holiday spirit?
