At Christmas time, all I care about is the three F’s – family, friends and food (duh). I’d much rather spend hours of quality time with the people around me, than an hour or so making myself up for the festive season.
I’ve definitely nailed the perfect festive look, one which you can do in ten minutes, maybe even five if you’re super speedy. It means not only do you look Christmas ready, you’ve also got extra time to spend with those around you who you treasure the most.
The look’s not only perfect for say, Christmas days or an impromptu Christmas night out or meal – it’s also great for New Years. I think it would be perfect with a super sparkly glossy lip for then – to make it more razzledazzle than Christmas day.
I’d love to know what you plan to do on Christmas day – I’m planning on wearing super comfy clothes, minimal makeup and eating everything I desire! After all, calories don’t count on Christmas you know!
