Holiday Series - 4 Looks

I had some spare time the other day and decided to do 4 of my holiday looks. They are not so dramatic because I've never been able to do those dramatic looks, but these are looks that I would do on myself. Hope you enjoy :)
For a simple night of celebration - sometimes I just want to stay in and avoid the crazy crowds and traffic. This is my look if I stay in with family, comfy and cozy. I kept my hair straight and just have base makeup on with simple eyeliner. I love my new oversized sweater, it's in the softest, coziest shade of blue. It might not show up very well, but there are little pearls dotted throughout the sweater, so cute ♥

Base: Skin79 The Oriental Gold BB Cream
Concealer: Make Up For Ever HD Concealer
Brows: Cosmagic Lock in Brow in Light Brown
Brows: Shiseido Maquillage Brown and Shadow Compact in 20
Eyeliner: Kate Super Sharp Liquid Eyeliner in Brown

For a romantic night of celebration with my boyfriend. I love this lace top from H&M, especially the sheer sleeves. For my hair, I have curled it with a curling iron, and then kind of softly teased it for extra volume at the bottom. I have also ran the curling iron through my bangs for a puffy, mushroom-like bang shape. For my makeup, I have added a deep brown shadow on my eyes, and have used it to create a winged shadow towards the outside. I have add peach blush on the apples of the cheeks and brushed the remaining over the bridge of my nose to create a soft, flushed glow.
