get your christmas hat out!

I've not been feeling that festive as of yet. Although I have done a bit of christmas shopping. I hate putting up decorations too early as I feel we dedicate so much of our lives to this materialistic holiday when really it shouldn't be about spending lots if money, it should be about appreciating what you have and spending time with loved ones.

I do love this time of the year and I quite like the cold too, just not the wind hail and rain we have been getting lately. But I rememer a couple of years ago when we spent 6 weeks in Australia over christmas and it felt so odd sunbathing on christmas day. I love nothing more than wrapping up in a scarf hat and gloves and waking up to a white christmas, I can't wait to take some lovely snowey photos this christmas time so here's hoping! :)
So last night to get in the festive mood I decided to do a Christmas frosty inspired makeup look

This was a pretty simple look. I used a simple white eyeliner and drew a bold sweeping shape around my eyes then blended it out. I then used a barry m dazzle dust powder in a pinky gold shimmer colour (I'm obsessed with barry m, it's AMAZING!) I used a fine tipped black liquid eyeliner by prestige and my usual black mascara then added gems and used my white eyeliner for my lovely snow flake.For my lips I used my creamy avon lipstick in romantic red. Oh and I used a natural collection tinted moisturiser and a light dusting of powder for a 'glowy' look. And coloured in my terrible fine eyebrows which I hate!

What do you think?
Are you in the festive mood? All organised for Christmas?
