I also go with discreet makeup on daylight hours, especially if I’m with my family. I usually match some of my eyeshadow shades to what I’m wearing, so I was thinking either bronzes and greens (the safe option for me) or shimmering blue and matte brown. I never get red lips, I don’t feel comfortable in them, and it’s a pity because I love how they look when I see any reviewed here. Maybe some day…

I’m with you–Christmas Eve is when I’ll do something fun and festive, Christmas Day is pretty natural. But I think a either a dramatic olive and gold eye with a sheer berry lip or sapphire and silver eye with a neutral nude/pink lip. I’ll probably end up doing the green/gold and saving the sapphire/silver for New Years.

MAC Morning Frost paintpot, NARS Hungry Heart duo for highlights and brow bone highlights, Tarte lashes, Tarte True Blood cheekstain 🙂

I don’t celebrate any holidays, but I do plan on doing an FOTD using some (coincidentally) holiday-esque colors. All because I finally got Armani Eyes to Kill #14 and some good red lippies! I’d wear them all year round, though. XD;

either my browser wont load the post or is broken..

i think so.. i won’t be wearing any makeup on Christmas Eve.. On Christmas Day, it’s gonna be:
Benefit the Porefessional
Guerlain Lingerie de Peau foundation
MUFE HD finishing powder
MUFE Aqua Cream #6 on cheeks
NARS Orgasm blush
NARS Smudgeproof e/s primer
MAC espresso e/s (brows)
MAC moleskin, espresso, stars n’ rockets e/s
MAC brow set girl boy
Benefit they’re real mascara
Guerlain Perles de nuit as all over highlighter
Guerlain Greta rouge G

scent: Chanel coco mademoiselle edt
nails: OPI Red

Uh oh, someone’s HTML didn’t work properly.

We celebrated early this year, so I already wore my holiday look. I wasn’t too sure about the lipstick combo with my eye makeup, but I wore the CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Embrace, and for my eyes I did a shimmery champaign with slight pink tones over the whole lid, then a darker cranberry wine red on the lower half of the lid (applied parallel to my lash line), then I placed a more matte dark bluish purple shade right in the outer V and hollow of the outer crease, and a light-medium metal shade in the crease blended with the outer V shade. These were all applied wet. I then applied the MUFE Aqua Eyes liner in 9L on the upper lash line and patted (dry) a dark slightly warmer brown over it, and lightly applied some of the red shade to my lower lash line. Then mascara and highlighter! I then wore a pastel pink lace quarter-sleeve dress from H&M, which is one of my favourites, with a brown fabric belt at my waist.

Christmas eve I wear barely anything.. Sometimes just moisturiser.
Christmas, totally diferent story! I will be wearing some sort of red lip and a soft contour and highlight. I’m thinking a mauve pink blush on my cheeks and of course I’ll fill in my brows. As for eyes I plan on using UD Darkhose all over with UD Virgin as highlight and tearduct 🙂

I think so. I want to do a gold/neutral smoky eye with some MAC eye shadows(I haven’t decided which one’s), Naked 2, UD 24/7 pencils in Perversion and Eldorado and a festive holiday red lip with KVD Foiled Love lipstick in Adora.

I have my new years look planned. A silver glitter eye and fake lashes with a bright fuscia lip. But for christmas I’m still thinking. Probably a classic pinup matte eye with winged liner and matte red lip. I’ll probably mix it up by doing a cool toned grey pinup eye instead of a warm brown.

Yep. But I’m always out of town, so if I don’t plan for it, it doesn’t get into the bag. 🙂 This year it’s based around NARS’ Isolde duo & berry lips, and that Stila Glam travel pallette from Sephora (snow/peachy gold/grey purple and the best shimmering taupe I’ve ever seen)

Christmas eve, I’ll be working, so I’ll do some kind of Christmas-y makeup- probably a green smoky eye with Sugarpill Junebug and theBalm Jealous Jordana. On christmas day, I’m wearing an outfit with plum, black, gray, and gold, so I’ll be doing my gold eye and berry lips with the Naked palette and Stila lip glaze.

Not sur of the entire look. I just know it ill include red lips in M.A.C. Red with a Mahogany liner. I think my eyes will be some shade of gold or I might do a natural eye with gold glitter and brown liner. We’ll see!!!

I did a periwinkle/silver look for a Christmas party earlier this month, and I went with deep blue and sparkles for a family get-together last Saturday.

I’ll be wearing makeup on Saturday because, despite my best efforts, I’m working Christmas Eve (but, then again, so is my boss -_-), but I doubt I’ll do anything super special.

Christmas is generally lazing around, opening gifts, and we have to do it way early this year, so no makeup!

I’m not quite sure, because Christmas Eve, I’ll be cooking, which usually wreaks havoc with any makeup I’m wearing. So I’ll probably go pretty light for that. On Christmas Day, I’m going to my in-laws, which usually means a nice neutral eye and an understated red or berry lip. I’ve already told my Armani ETK #19 that it’s on deck for New Year’s Eve…

I don’t think I’ll wear makeup on Christmas Eve, mainly because my boyfriend and I won’t be doing much this year (can you believe his Christmas flicks are the 4 Die Hards? I was SO shocked when he told me about it last week and basically told him it ain’t happening this year. Hell no, I’m watching Love Actually mister!). But on Christmas Day we’re going over to some friends’, and I’ll probably be wearing something gold on my eyes and just a pink lip. I haven’t started using bold lipsticks yet, and I have major doubts about combining that with a copious amount of eating.

PS: I find it so super cute that your parents still film you opening the presents lol

Every Christmas Eve, I go to a family friend’s party, so makeup is definitely planned ahead of time. I’m wearing a long sleeved black mini dress from Old Navy with black tights, black booties and a black velvet blazer.

Makeup is:
Nars Primer
Chanel VA in B20 or Armani Luminous Silk in 4,
Lancome Brow Gel,
Lancome Cils Booster Mascara Primer,
Lancome Hypnose Dolls Mascara,
UD Naked Palette (Virgin all over and up to brow bone) Sin on inner corners
Lancome Artliner for a winged out eye.

Chanel Bronze Universal to contour
Nars Larger than Life Lipgloss in Place Vendome on apples of cheeks

Clinique Black Honey & Place Vendome on lips.

Christmas Day I spend with the boy’s grandparents in Long Beach, CA, so probably leggings, long t-shirt, uggs and natural makeup:

Nars Primer
Maybelline Age Eraser Foundation (shade 120)

Lancome Brow Gel
Lancome Cils Booster
Lancome Definicils
Mac Soft & Gentle as Eyeshadow
Chanel Brun Cuivre Eyeliner on outer corners

Chanel Bronzer
Fresh Sugar Rose on lips

NYE going up to Oakland, CA with the boy right after Christmas, so I’ll be packing everything early:

White silk, long sleeved flowy blouse with skinny black jeans, Vince Camuto ballet flats and wavy/curly hair.

Nars Primer
Chanel VA or Armani Luminous Silk

Lancome Brow Gel
Lancome Cils Booster
Lancome Hypnose Doll
UD Naked Palette Sin on lid, Sidecar in the crease
Lancome Artliner to define lashline
Tarte Emphaseyes Aqua Gel Liner to tightline lower lashes

Nars Laguna Bronzer
Benefit Dandelion on apples of cheeks

Fresh Sugar Rose lip balm
MUFE Labshine gloss in S2 (pale champagne shimmer)

I have no idea yet! I think im going to wear a muted kind of emerald/teal dress on Christmas day so I think red lips would be too much. I might do a matching smokey eye and nude lip…

haha no! not at all! I want to do something really festive though;l I’m also thinking of a bright red lipstick 😀

I haven’t really planned specifics, yet. Christmas eve (in the evening) I’m playing handbells, so I’ll probably wear makeup of some kind – possibly including green in the eyeshadow. I’d do a neutral eye with winged black liner and red lips (just got a new red lipstick) but that’s similar to what I wore last time that group of people saw me, so probably not!

Christmas day is pretty casual, but I may put a little on. It’ll probably be more simple, though, and involve nude lipstick since it’ll probably come off while eating anyway.
