It’s finally December, and we know what you’re thinking: how can I look my best for all those Christmas parties? Christmas is the time of year when everyone gets dressed up and goes out, from office parties to family get-togethers. It’s a time where makeup becomes an important part of the outfit and how your hair looks. We all want to look our best over this special holiday season.
A smokey eye is always a popular choice for special occasions. For a Christmas-themed look, use dark purple or green shades to create a smokey eye. Finish the look with eyeliner and mascara, and red lipstick for extra impact. Black cat eye with strip lashes, sparkly teal eyeshadow above the crease and lots of mascara is definitely a go-to look this season!
Some makeup looks work because they’re classic, not trendy. The classic red lip is one example of this type of makeup look; simply pair it with a festive holiday sweater, and you’re good to go. For a more modern take on the look, use a glossy lip gloss for extra shine. A candy cane pattern on your face with red lipstick and glitter eyeshadow will also do the trick.
If you want to make a statement with your makeup, go for glitter. There are endless possibilities when it comes to using glittery makeup. From eyeshadow to nail polish, you can really have fun with glitter makeup. This is a great look for the more adventurous woman who doesn’t want to wear the same old festive season makeup every year.
If you’re attending a party, why not try something slightly different? Instead of going for festive colors, use dark shades of burgundy or black for a burlesque look. Add some fake eyelashes and red lipstick to complete the look. If you’re feeling really adventurous this Christmas, festive trees across your cheekbones with white eyeshadow and lots of highlighter will release all those festive vibes wherever you go!
Not everyone wants to go all out for Christmas; some people prefer a more subtle makeup look. In this case, soft and neutral shades are the way to go. Opt for shades of pink, peach, or beige, and keep the focus on your eyes and lips.
Finally, if you want to go for a really classic look, try gold makeup. This look will never go out of style and will always make you look elegant. Use shades of gold, bronze, or copper for a festive look that will last all season long. Complete the look with a wreath in your hair!
