I have been a lucky girl this year; I feel well and truly spoiled and privileged to be able to have what I want. Since as my birthday is unbelievably near Christmas (3rd January), I usually get a lot of things combined together. I don’t bother as much with my birthday as much as I do with Christmas, as Mr T would say ‘It’s just another day’
Whether it is a work event, a gathering with friends or a family get together, Christmas and New Year is the time to party on down with the people you love (or at least tolerate once a year because there is free food and drink). The age old question that springs to peoples minds when preparing for a big function is usually ‘what do I wear?’ However, for the makeup addict such as myself the first question that springs to mind is ‘what makeup look am I going to rock?’
What is goodwill?
It is often said that Christmas is the season of goodwill; likewise, the phrase ‘goodwill to all men’ is synonymous with the festive period. The phrase originates from the book of Luke from the New Testament and is linked to the idea of peace on earth
Christmas, as you might know, is my favourite time of the year. This love also extends into my makeup looks, I really enjoy creating Christmas themed makeup looks from smoky eyes to full-on glitter eyes, I feel Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year to experiment with my eyeshadow looks; here are some of my favourite Christmas inspired looks, which one do you like best?
Christmas can be stressful
I feel like that heading is a bit of an understatement, Christmas can be one of the most stressful times of the year and a nightmare to keep track of. It is supposed to be ‘the season of goodwill’, a time that we spend with the people we love, our family and friends; spending precious time together and showing our love. Instead, we spend the majority of Christmas queueing, getting annoyed with all the presents you have to get/wrap and running around like a headless chicken trying to make sure the house is well stocked with food because we need tons of food at Christmas
Deck the halls with boughs of holly la la la la la la la. It’s approaching that time of year again it’s Christmas this has to be my favourite holiday I get super excited about it. Christmas time is the one time the year I can really go mad.
