Christmas Themed Make up Looks 

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?

Put an orange in your stocking

Some people might not think of orange shades when thinking of Christmas but I always associate it with the oranges that were covered in cloves or dried and put into a mulled cider. When I think of a traditional Christmas I think of cinnamon and eating Terry’s Chocolate oranges, because you always receive at least one at this time of year. I also remember getting a Clementine in my Christmas stocking as a child because it was the tradition. I have been creating a lot of orange-based looks recently and I can understand why many makeup addicts love the warm tones, especially in the colder months. 

This look was created using the Makeup Revolution Flawless 4 palette 

Transition – Ouch

Crease – Drop

Outer V – Hair Down

Corner of Outer V – Blend

Middle of the lid – On Top

Inner part of the lid – Blush

Inner Corner – Daydream from the ABH Nicole palette

Red and green

I wanted to create a traditional red and green look that was wearable; I dug out my trusty Morphe 35c palette and my Sugarpill eyeshadows and set to work. I am really impressed with this look and I might recreate it for Christmas Eve and throw a bit of glitter on the lid (green of course).  This look was so easy to create because the shadows are so great to work with. I find the Morphe 35c the best Morphe palette in terms of pigmentation and blendability (I have not tried the new formula of their eyeshadows yet). I also am in love with Sugarpill eyeshadows as they are so easy to work with and pack a great colour punch. I was tempted to do a white winged eyeliner but I thought it best to stick to the black since as I was going crazy with the colour. 

Transition – Pale green in the Morphe 35c

Crease and lid – Acidberry by Sugarpill

Outer V and crease – Midori by Sugarpill

Lower lash line – a mixture of the two reds from the Morphe 35c palette

Inner corner – Mulled from the Makeup Revolution Flawless 4 palette


Do you want to build a snowman? As I am actually typing this, in November, we have a dusting of snow on the ground and my son wants to go and have a snowball fight but there isn’t enough snow. I love doing icy blue looks at Christmas time, the combination of blue and silver or blue and white is gorgeous this time of year and of course, it is even better with some glitter thrown on top, because we all know how addicted to glitter I am. The Disney film has become synonymous with the festive period because of it’s more 21st Century depiction of the Snow Queen tale. I prefer the film Tangled but the story of Elsa and Anna is great inspiration for this winter-themed look. 

Transition – lightest matte blue in MUA Tropic Ocean palette 

Crease – from Sleek Nautical Collection and medium blue from the MUA Tropic Ocean palette 

Outer V – darkest blue from the MUA Tropic Ocean palette 

Lid shade – foiled blue from MUA Tropic Ocean palette 

Inner Corner – Forever Lit from the ABH Nicole palette

I then topped the lid off with some cosmetic glitter in a silvery blue.

Mulled wine

This has to be one of my favourite things about Christmas. I love curling up of an evening with a warm mulled wine, it really is a sign that Christmas is near. I am not sure when I started developing a taste for mulled wine but I think it was when I went to London for my 30th birthday just before Christmas and it was the only thing that could keep us warm, London in the snow is really, really cold. As well as enjoying the delight that is mulled wine I also love having a little nip of brandy or whiskey in the mulled wine; I went to the Christmas Markets with my friend and tried mulled wine and brandy and it was amazing so tried it at home with my cherry whiskey and it was gorgeous.

All shadows use in this look are from Makeup Geek  

Transition – Peach Smoothie

Crease – Tuscan Sun & Bitten

Outer V – Cherry Cola

Corner of Outer V – Corrupt 

Lid shade – Anarchy 

Inner Corner – Shimma Shimma

  2. These look amazing and you’ve done so well with the green/purple, not an easy combo to pull off! That mulled wine inspired one is probably my favourite, those rosy tones are right up my street xx

    Interesting looks. Some more blending and practice of the eyeliner and perhaps some lashes and it will all come together very nicely. Practice makes perfect.

      Thank you for your feedback, I do not wear lashes on account I wear glasses.

    Not sure if it’s just the camera, but the “Red and green” makeup looks green and purple to me. It’s still really pretty though and would actually be a good look for Halloween (even though it’s quite a bit away now), especially if you added a little orange to it. The Frozen look is my favorite, by far. It is just so breathtakingly beautiful! I’ve actually had a similar look in my head that I’ve been wanting to try sometime throughout the Winter.

      I definitely used a red but I think because the reds in the 35c are blue based reds it may have look purple with the green. It looked red in reality, I think with some green glitter it would look more ‘Christmas appropriate’. I can’t wait to see you do the frozen look, blue is such an underrated eye shadow colour.

        Ah yes, that makes sense. And I totally agree, I’ve always loved blue eyeshadow! I hate that there are people who think blue eyeshadow is tacky. Blue and silver are so pretty together too. I did a pretty look back before I started my blog that I should try to recreate. It would be a good look for Winter too.
