Anyway, the holiday season is upon us. For many of us, this means going to various parties and family functions. Therefore, I shall be posting some holiday party makeup and outfit ideas featuring mostly my mainstream wardrobe. Many of the functions that I go to at this time of the year are either work or family related and therefore I must dress appropriately.
The outfit and makeup below were done for a wine/whiskey tasting and dinner that a friend of mine organized at a local restaurant. For my makeup, I did a colourful smokey eye and sparkly glossy lips. I think something like this is perfect for holiday parties as it is not too over the top but adds some interest to the classic smokey eye. Sheer glossy lips are great for any party where you will be eating; it is hard to keep very bold or dramatic lip colours looking perfect while eating.

I am in love with these shoes. That is all.
I found these cool earrings on sale for $3. I like to shop for statement jewellery in the sale sections at clothing stores that I like. They often have a lot of large pieces on for a good price as it seems many people are afraid of statement jewellery.
Do you like big jewellery? What is your favourite accessory?
