Chistmas Day Makeup Look

Can't believe it's Christmas already. I have been really busy studying this year, and I am proud to say that I passed my Beauty Specialist  ITEC and CIBTAC exams with Merit. Last week  I also did an intermediate course with Zoe Clark, one of the best Makeup Artist in Ireland.  I can highly  recommend this course to any aspiring makeup artist. In the course, there was also a photo shoot included with the amazing photographer Barry McCall, so if you are interested what the shot looks like, then visit my Facebook page. Being a full time office worker and part time blogger, it didn't leave me much time for my friends and family this year. This is all about to change next year. Hopefully.

 Many thanks to all my followers, for all your visits and comments. I wish you all Merry Christmas and I hope you all will have a great time with your loved ones.

 Anyways, enough of sentimentality, this is my make up Look for the Christmas Day and I hope you like it.
