Lets face it, advice if there’s a time to go all out with your makeup it’s Christmastime! So to kick-start the festive period I’ve put together a warm smoky eye look that will keep you going from Christmas Day right through to New Year’s Eve.


I’m a huge fan of Christmas (I may have been an Elf in a former life) and I’d usually be all for dowsing everything in glitter during the festive period but not everyone enjoys the mess that comes along with glitter and pigments, hospital so to keep in line with a festive look without going OTT, I decided to go for a warm mauve/plum blown out smoky eye with lots of contour and highlight and a pinky nude lip.


There’s something so smouldering and sultry about a smoky eye in the Winter! So why not give it a whirl?


TIP: The easiest way to create a smoky eye is to use 3 tones of the same colour, keeping the darkest at the lash line and working outwards with the lighter tones, and keep blending!
