Festive Make Up Inspiration

Hi Guys,

I've started having a look for inspiration on what make up to wear for Christmas. I'd really like to try something new, so I popped over to Youtube to have a hunt through some of my favourite guru's tutorials and gain some ideas!
Of course I had to include some of Pixiwoo's videos, It was actually really difficult to choose so I've ended up with three looks I think I'm going to try. I don't think I can't not try any of these looks! 
Christmas Party Red Lip Make up Tutorial by Nic from Pixiwoo
Im a bit obsessed with cut creases recently and Graphic Liner, I love this cut crease that Nic from Pixiwoo has done with the ombre red lip. Its a modern take on the pin up look and I think its such a classic look for Christmas.
Kristen Stewart Make up Tutorial by Nic from Pixiwoo
Ok so firstly I love Kristen Stewart so this could of swayed my decision just a teeny weeny bit! Aside from Kristen though this cranberry eye is beautiful! Its smokey and dark and bang on the cranberry trend, I really want to get into wearing berry on the eyes and not just on the lips. However sometimes it can look more like a black eye, Nic has it aced though!
Plum Glossy Sparkle Eyes Make up Tutorial by Sam from Pixiwoo
Glossy Eyes! They're so pretty! Grunge and just I have no words. Again the berry shades on the eyes but with the more editorial spin of a glossy eye, the fact the skin is so fresh and it just makes Sam's blue/green eyes look fantastic! With MAC releasing their eye glosses too, its probably going to become a very popular trend which I cannot wait to try! 
Soft Glam Holiday Make up Tutorial by NikkieTutorials
This look is exactly what it says it is, soft and glamorous! I love the softness in the eyes with browns and berry shades. Plus there is glitter and the flawless skin. As well as the warmth to the face that Nikkie is always fantastic at doing! I think I'm in love with the lipstick too but its sold out after how popular Nikkie's look has been. 
Christmas Party Make up Tutorial! by Tanya Burr (Pixi2woo)
One of my favourite shades to wear on my eyes especially at this time of year is a really rich bronze. So this look by Tanya really appeals to me, I find it really glam and seeing as she uses Russian Red Lipstick, which is currently my go to at the moment! I can't help but want to give it a go!
Christmas Glam Eye Make up Tutorial by Jamie Genevieve 
I love this look because its well glitter! Anyone at college this week has probably heard me going on and on about my love for glitter, I would literally wear glitter on my eyes 24/7! I love the warmth to this look too while its still dark, the gold glitter is so festive and I really need to get my hands on some of those Lime Crime Glitters!

In the end I think every single one of these looks is going to have to be tried out, Im still not sure about Christmas Day. Unfortunately I don't think I can wear all six on Christmas Day haha!
