CAN YOU BELIEVE IT’S GETTING CLOSE TO CHRISTMAS TIME?! You know what that means: decorations, wayyy too many sweet treats, and partayyy invitations 😏But my favorite part has to be dressing up. I feel like it’s 100% more acceptable to get glam during the holidays so I love to try new things with my looks for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year parties!
I’ve always been more of a natural makeup kinda gal. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE makeup – I just prefer subtlety. But for the holidays I’ve GOTTA get into the holiday spirit with my look. I love these new Love Lust Disco collection palettes from NYX Cosmetics because they help me to up my festive makeup game without going TOO far outside my comfort zone.
These palettes have it all, which make them SO easy for traveling or just getting ready in a pinch (y’all know I’m never on time, oops)! There’s a blush palette, highlight palette, three different eyeshadow palettes with a number of shades to choose from. NYX Cosmetics is cruelty-free brand that celebrates diversity and self-expression, I have used it for years and am never disappointed!
I love how many options are available (and at such budget-friendly prices) – you could create endless looks. The eyeshadow palettes come in a gold theme, pink theme, or silver theme. If your skin has warmer undertones, I recommend the gold or pink palette, and for cooler undertones the silver, but it’s totally up to you! Creativity looks beautiful on EVERYONE ❤️
GOING FOR GOLD
I love each one for different reasons, but for my skin tone, I’m a BIG fan of the gold. Usually, I love to just use one or two shades on my eye, starting with an all-over gold wash, adding in a bit of lighter gold to highlight my inner corner and brow bone. Then, I sometimes finishing with a little darker gold to the outer corners if I’m feeling fannnncyyyy. Lastly, I pop on some blush and highlight (the golden highlight is my fave – it makes my fake tan pop lol!) and voila! I’m ready to jingle bell rock with the best of’em 🎄
I have to admit, even though I play it pretty safe with my makeup, these palettes have been SO FUN to play around with! I’ve found myself reaching for shades I never thought I would and I love how fearless I’m becoming. I wanna give these palettes to all of my gal pals for Christmas! They’re so wearable but still give you the option to experiment and explore – ya gotta have that balance! Use DANI to get 20% off at NYX Cosmetics through 11/30/2019.
