One of my favourite things about Christmas day is doing my makeup. Ever since i was little in our house we have always dressed up a little on Christmas Day. Who doesn't love a bit of glitter? I already have my Christmas Day outfit picked out and i already have an idea of my eye makeup. I wanted to share some of my favourite single eyeshadows and favourite palettes which are perfect for the Party/Christmas season. I have swatched some of the shades below.
Single Eye Shadows
This is one of my many Milani eyeshadows which i just adore. I got mine from Beauty Joint a US website which has cheap UK Postage and no custom charges! You can get how much your postage is and as long as the postage cost is under £15 you get no charges. These shadows are extremely pigmented and can be used dry or wet. This shade is Bella Copper.
Colourpop Super Shock Shadow "Get Lucky" | £5.00
As you know we can't get Colourpop here in the UK but i got mine from the mobile app Depop. Some people try and charge stupid prices so just search for the best price. I was amazed at how pigmented these are with just one swipe! If you are wanting a long lasting pigmented shade then this is it!
Everyone has heard of MAC Cranberry and when i finally got my hands on it i fell in love. This shade is perfect for Christmas. I love using this all over the lid or just in the crease.
This palette i received for winning blogger of the month with Essence. I wasn't sure what to expect for £4 but it is now one of my favourite palettes. It includes 8 shimmer shades from light to dark shades. These shadows feel so creamy and look gorgeous when applied.
Tanya Burr Hollywood Eyes Palette | £5.99
I did mention this palette in my "The Blogger Made Me Buy It" post and said i don't know if i would re purchase this. I do love 3 out of 4 shades. The 4th shade i do like when i apply it on top of another shadow as it has more chunks of glitter rather than a really pigmented shade.
Freedom Pro 32 Innocent Palette | £8.00
A firm favourite of mine. This is definitely my go-to palette. It has so many shades including gold, burgundy, purple and a stunning black glitter shade. All shades are shimmery but they also sell a matte version too. If you want to see swatches of this palette click here or the link at the end of the post to my full review of this palette.
