Merry Christmas Eve!

My husband and I are going out for a drink so I thought I'd reflect the traditional colors of green (although I really did think about red!).

BH Cosmetics 120 Palette 1st Edition (the dark emerald green and dark charcoal)
NYX Exotic Green
NARS Eye duo (the light peach color) Tzarine
Essence Black Mania eyeliner

Rimmel Autumn Catwalk blush

NYX Megashine lip gloss in Golden Pink

Have a lovely Christmas eve everyone!

Basic with a touch of sparkle!

I seem to be getting a bit quicker in applying my makeup... at least some days!

Today's look is quite simple.

I used the very light bisque color and one of the dark browns from the BH Cosmetics palette, Maybelline Eye Studio gel liner in Blackest Black and MAC Powersurge eyeliner and NYX lipgloss in Sweetheart.

I begin my Christmas holiday halfway through the day today and am off for almost 2 weeks. I plan to experiment on some looks. Yay!

Aqua and blue

All blues come from the 88 matte palette by BH Cosmetics. Love the colors I've used so far and they are highly pigmented!

Happy Friday!

BH Cosmetics 120 shadow eye palette - 1st edition

Just received this last week and opened it (when I was not exhausted from working so much) and it's so pretty! Can't wait to use it!

Green Sparkley

I am not sure how very different this is from some of my other green explorations but oh well!
