The Holidaze are Here!

And so is my first Holidaze video! Yes, holidaze, not holidays. If you haven't watched my announcement video on Youtube (which you really should as it will give you the entire low down of what I'm doing this month) I'm planning to upload a LOT of videos this month. As in every other day! And no, they won't all be lame Tag videos, there will be lots of tutorials, DIYs, makeup, outfits, and more. So it will definitely be a very fun month for you, and a very busy one for me!

This is my first Holiday Christmas makeup look, inspired by the classic red and gold theme that is oh-so-popular for this time of year. I love red, so no complaints from me on that front!

  2. This is an absolutely stunning look. I love the toned-down neutral eye with the bright red lips. You look gorgeous!

  3. Liebe Julia, du siehst traumhaft aus. Der Look ist genau mein Ding. Ich liebe rote Lippen und schöne lange Wimpern. Ich wünschte mir mal du könntest mich mal schminken, das wäre ein Traum :-)
