1950's Inspired Christmas Day Makeup Look

When I think of Christmas, there are a few things that spring to mind other than scoffing chocolates and mince pies ...Actually I hate mince pies! Anyway, I usually think of the many different shades of RED I see over the festive season. Whether it's the Coca Cola advert, tree decorations or the dodgy Father Christmas with the even dodgier fake beard!

I never ever wear red in any way shape or form, so I thought it would make a nice change to come up with a red inspired makeup look for Christmas day.

I decided to go for a 1950s inspired look with three key areas:
