My Go-to Golden Eye and Nude Lip - Christmas Makeup 2017

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas. I actually celebrated my Christmas Day on Christmas Eve because the plan was that I would be going on holiday to Abu Dhabi on the 25th of December. I am currently writing this on the 26th of December and I am at home. Yes, that's right, my holiday was canceled and so I spent my Christmas here, which was definitely not the plan and it did take a huge toll on our Christmas spirit. Even though, right now, I don't really want to have to explain why we didn't end up going away, I might talk about it at a later date, but to lift up my spirits and just to genuinely put me in a better mood, I thought I would sit down and write about the makeup I wore on Christmas Day. Since my last makeup look (linked here) was super chatty and in depth, I thought I would leave this post to just let the pictures do the talk and I would just list the products I used at the end. I hope you don't mind that, but if you could help me out and comment which style of makeup look/ tutorial you prefer, I would really appreciate that.
