Merry Christmas Everyone! What I Got This Year

Merry Christmas everyone and if you don’t celebrate the holiday, then happy holidays or just have a great day. Hope you don’t mind this post being so short, I just wanted to hop on real quick to say Merry Christmas as I’m spending the whole week with my family so I won’t be posting a whole lot until after the holidays are over. Now I’m not going to take a picture of what I got but in case you were curious this is what I got for Christmas this year.

Do You Wanna Build a Snowman? | Snowman Inspired Makeup Look

Continuing on with my seasonal creative makeup looks, I did this snowman look inspired by @vocallyshook. To be honest I have not built a snowman in many years… I think the last one I made was in college and then for a class assignment we had to do something against social norms, which promptly lead to me making at least part of the snowman in my bikini. It was extremely cold, and I regretted it immediately. But hey it led to an interesting memory and photo (not that I’m showing it on here).

You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch, Ornament Look Inspired by Peachcait

One of my favorite Christmas movies of all time is How the Grinch Stole Christmas with Jim Carrey. I could honestly quote that movie all season long and even after that. So, when I saw Peachcait over on Instagram created a look inspired by the movie in an ornament, I knew I had to do my own version of it. While hers is half of her face, I kept mine as added detail to the look. Mainly as I can’t wear colored contacts and I wanted to do something I little bit different. Check out her original version of the look as it is incredible!

Making An Advent Calendar For My Dog, Pixie Bug

‘Tis the season for Advent Calendars. I didn’t any for myself this year, but after seeing videos from Nicol Concilio and Jenna Marbles where they made ones for their dogs, I decided make one as well. Only mine also includes a “treat” for myself, that being starburst that I still had from Halloween. I had a lot of fun making it.

Tangled in Lights Makeup Look

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.
