Happy Holidays: Lookbook 2015

We are only 5 days away until Christmas— how can this be?! I’m afraid things come and go all too quickly when it comes to the most wonderful time of the year. As we are in the midst of holiday gatherings and parties, I thought it appropriate to curate a lookbook for every occasion you have on your calendar during the busy holiday season! Speaking of, if you follow me on Instagram, then you will have known that I created my first ever guest post centered around de-stressing during the holiday season. If you haven’t already, please go check it out on myvioletdelights blog for even more festive fun!

Anyways, whether a cocktail party or night out, here’s 3 looks to get you through the holidays!

The Basics

Starting with the fundamentals, here are the reoccurring base products you’ll find in each of the looks.


  1. Nivea Men After Shave Balm– Face primer
  2. L’Oreal Infalliable Pro-Matte Foundation– First layer of foundation
  3. Revlon Colorstay Foundation– Second layer of foundation
  4. L’Oreal Infalliable Setting Spray– Setting spray
  5. Tarte Smooth Operator Powder– Finishing powder
  6. Bare Minerals Lash Domination Mascara– Blending mascara
  7. Lorac Behind the Scenes Eye Primer– Eyelid primer
  8. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard– Under eye concealer
  9. Anastasia Contour Kit Light-Medium– Contour
  10. Pixi Brow Duo– Brow gel
  11. Anastasia Brow Wiz in Dark Brown– Eyebrow Pencil
  12. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper– Upper lashline/Winged liner

Look 1: Double Wing & Red

First up is the classic holiday look with a twist: red lip, matte eye, and winged liner with a metallic touch! This look is great for family Christmas gatherings or office parties, and is the most basic of the three looks. However, if you would like to further simplify the look you can skip the gold liner and it will look similar to a look I did in last year’s lookbook.


Eyes: Tartelette Palette

  1. Lid– Free Spirit
  2. Crease– Wanderer
  3. Outer Corner– Dreamer







Look 2: Winter Wonderland

This look is full of silver and sparkles and is probably the look I’ll be rocking this Christmas with my family, but I can also see this being perfect for a holiday party! If you need to look like Elsa or pierce the hearts of men as the Ice Queen, look no further!


Eyes: Lorac Pro Palette

  1. Lid– White
  2. Crease Base Blending Shade– Taupe
  3. Crease ColorMUG Foiled Shadow in High Wire
  4. Outer Corner– Slate
  5. Lower Lashline– Black
  6. Inner Corner Highlight– Nude







Look 3: Navy & Copper Drama

This look is perfect for New Year’s Eve! It’s smokey, dramatic, and has just the right amount of color and shimmer.

  3. Inner Crease Colourpop Shadow in Boy Band

    1. Thanks so much Elanie- what a compliment! 😊 the after shave has glycerin in it which is found in most primers and so it has that smoothing feel to it. I got the tip from nikkietutorials!


  1. 3 beautiful looks! I can’t wear false lashes, they irritate my eyes 😦 But they look lovely on you! I think the navy and copper look is my favourite!


  2. Wow, three fabulous looks! Now I know I need the ColourPop lippie Bichette! But I think your copper/blue look is the most arresting. beautiful
