3 Alternative Christmas Party Dresses :)

Christmas Party Season is upon us!
Which means it's time to start picking out our party outfits, and for me it's important that my dresses actually cover me against the colder winter weather and are not too restrictive when yummy food & drinks are involved :)

The Hunger Games 'Catching Fire' Inspired Makeup & Outfit;

I finally got around to seeing the new Hunger Games movie 'Catching Fire' and as predicted, I loved it! I loved the videography, the over all aesthetic, the Capitol Couture fashion and of course the makeup. Oh yeah, and the actual story line didn't completely suck either :P
My favourite makeup look for the film was the one Katniss wore at the dance in the Capitol where she has striking red eyeshadow with glitter over an interesting double-lined wing eyeliner design. The rest of the makeup was kept fresh and delicate, really allowing for the eyes to stand out!
