With only 5(!) days until christmas I am lusting after all of the festive berry tones and glittering golds. I love reaching for reds in the winter as they always feel oh so christmassy. There’s something totally comforting about painting your nails in a gorgeous burgundy red, topping them with glitter top coat and applying a beautiful berry lipstick to head out for a day at the christmas markets sipping toasted marshmallow hot chocolates! I wanted to round up a few of my favourite picks this season.
I am obsessed with the combination of glowing skin, a shimmering champagne eyeshadow and a bold red lip. This makeup combination looks so fresh and perfect for the festive season. I’m quite fussy with my red lipstick choices, I like them to be either a deep berry or an orangey red as they compliment my skin tone so much better. I always reach for my Charlotte Tilbury lipstick collection in the winter as she creates these shades so well. Love Liberty and Glastonberry are my go-to wine shades, the velvety matte finish is such a dream to apply. They make a statement whilst feeling so luxe and glam for every occasion. For a classic red I have been feeling slightly braver than usual and wearing Carinas Love, a classic siren red that really makes your makeup pop. Perfect for Christmas day!
I’ll never get board of classic berry nails with some kind of a glitter accent. It always looks so beautifully festive. I have such a soft spot for the Essie Nail range, the shades are just perfect with something for everyone and the quality is spot on. A few of my favourite deep berry shades are Essie’s Bordeaux and Jump In My Jumpsuit. When I’m feeling something a little more cheery I love Fifth Avenue, it’s a staple red for any collection! My favourite glittering gold top coat is Summit of Style. It looks beautiful applied all over or used for little details.
What are your go-to berry tones for the festive season?
