I don’t have a big tree to decorate this year though I did help my mom with hers. And hers isn’t the same color palette that I would go for. Granted this look isn’t that either unless you count the rainbow icicle string of lights that I have on my balcony for the season. Since we’re in the midst of Blogmas, I thought I would try my best at a recreation of this tangled up in Christmas lights look by Abbey Strohmeyer (and inspired by Sandra on Instagram). Check out their versions of this look as both are incredible.
I was really inspired by this look James Charles and Vanessa Davis did for the “launch” of the Morphe x James Charles mini palette. Which is basically the same palette just smaller. I got the original palette when it launched, moved and had to part ways with it due to size, then regretted that and my sister repurchased it for me as a moving in present (my sister comes up with a million reasons to get me makeup, I generally don’t ask her to but if I mention a palette looks cool and I can’t afford it, suddenly she surprises me with it. She’s the best, I love her to death). However, I recently got the Norvina Collection Volumes 1-3 and decided to use those instead to create my own version of this look.
Over the years, I’ve seen many YouTubers use Ofra highlighters and I always had it on my wishlist to try it if I found one in stores. And for some reason, I ranked it up there with luxury brands of something I’ll never be able to afford or try. Then I went Ulta the other week with my sister, and realized I was very wrong in assumption. I don’t know why I never looked up how much their products were, but it’s actually not the most expensive thing in the world. Now the first time we went, I tried out two shades but didn’t end up purchasing either though I kind of wish I did at the time. The next time I went, I got the shade Pillow Talk which CosmoByHaley mentions a lot in her videos.
