Is it just me, or has Christmas come out of nowhere in the sea of sameiness that's been 2020? Day fade into weeks, weeks fade into months and suddenly it's festive season, even though it really doesn't feel like it. I've really discovered the fun in makeup this year, given I've not worn it that regularly, and I'm actually looking forward to doing a bit of easy glam over the festive period (however I end up spending it). How sad is that?! Today I'm sharing my top makeup picks to add a bit of festive glam to my quick and easy makeup looks...
Eyes are always the most fun! The Hourglass Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow in Foil | £28 | is a classic for me. This makes glitter eyeshadow quick and easy with no mess; you can apply it with a swipe of your finger. There's no fallout or flaking throughout the day; just gorgeous, long-wearing, grown-up glitter. This is a warm coppery-gold that's perfect for the festive season. A newer discovery has been the Huda Beauty Gold Obsessions Palette* | £27. I do wish this palette contained a few less light frosty shades but the actual golds are stunning; it's up to you if you think it's worth buying for that and the pink-toned and dark brown matte or if it's not varied enough for you. I really like patting on these metallic golds with my fingers to give my eye look a nice little pop. I find these shades easy to work with and long-wearing on me.
