LOOK: Red Eyeshadow for Christmas Eve & My Adventures~ !

Hi everyone! The wild bit of my Christmas holiday is coming to an end, which means I'll have more time to make posts on the blog! I'd like to share with you all the look I did for Christmas eve, and a few photos of my adventures back in Davao City *so far! Keep reading~!

This is the look I wore on our Christmas Eve party! I thought that neutral eyes with red lips was a very predictable look for this season, so I switched the colours the other way around! I used red eyeshadow with pale lips. What do you think? ♥

The party was held at our house, and it gave me a chance to see old friends again. It was so fun, we had so much food and laughs, and we had a really good time.

Here's a photo of myself and my little cousin at the party *she's the one in the photo to your right on the blog! ~

The yellow lights make us look really tanned~!

Just before Christmas eve, my family stayed the night at Eden Mountain Resort. It's a beautiful resort by the mountains, where we get to fish for our lunch, hike, and see all the pretty birds and peacocks. This one is pure white, and it's gorgeous!

That sunset by the beach was just so breathtaking~!! ♥

I hope you enjoyed looking at the photos. And I also wish that these photos brought a little warmth to those of you missing the warm seasons!

  6. Thank you so much for sharing pictures with us. I loved them. You looked so pretty on the Christmas Eve.
    I'm jealous of the weather you've got there. :)

  7. This color looks very cool on you! You are lucky to pull off such a color, my skin looks wierd with anything red or copperish.

  17. @FabDiva20- Thanks! I did have a great time. Dangerzone is one of my favourite eyeshadows! But you just have to find the right opportunity to wear these shades though, since red eyeshadow is not for the faint of heart~!
