Christmas is days away and most of us are already planning what gifts to buy, outfits to wear and, of course, our festive makeup look! But first you should pamper your skin with some delightful skin care products and after you can proceed to the Christmas makeover. From traditional glamorous makeup looks, overloaded with glitter and Christmas colors to the most exquisite and nontrivial makeup with an edgy twist. We've picked the most exciting makeup looks for you to try out this holiday season.
Let's start with our favorite everlasting Christmas classics - golden glow on the eyes, dewy iridescent highlighter on the skin and cat eyeliner on the lashline. Neatly shaped true red lips, glossed with shine (and maybe some shimmer) will be an ideal companion for glamorous eyes.
FESTIVE IN GREEN:
Calming green eyeshadow is incredibly versatile and can make a fantastic impression on your colleagues and friends. Choose a few green colors for your Christmas party look, adding depth and color variety on your lids. Sprinkle your lids with some glitter or go for a perfect cut crease eye look to add a merry touch to the look.
CUTE HOLIDAY DESIGNS:
Some nontraditional makeup looks can be even more appealing and celebratory, then traditional glitter and classic winged liner. Everyone who is ready to experiment and try out new makeup techniques should decorate their eyelids with cute holiday designs.
Snow-wrapped pines, jolly lights and even a tiny Santa hat - demonstrates your makeup skills and pleases your nephews and little cousins.
VIVID JEWEL TONES:
Finding makeup looks created with classic holiday colors, like bright red and forest green, always feels like a win-win option. The classic smoky eye can never overcome the festivity of reds and greens during the holiday season but if you're looking for something whimsical and fun this year, try vivid jeweled-toned hues which were a huge trend this year. Bold statement hues are glamorous, bold and seductive and create an eye catching look! Find the shade that compliments your eye color or your holiday party outfit to sizzle in saturated statement hues.
COLORED GLITTER EYELINER:
Wearing cat eyeliner on a daily basis can be tiring. Christmas night happens only once per year and you deserve to look striking. Add a fancy twist to your eye makeup and have them sparkle with festive glitter eyeliner. Don't have glitter eyeliner in your makeup kit? DIY (do it yourself) by applying a colorful base (colored eyeshadow+water) right where your traditional liner normally goes, then, add a tiny bit of glitter primer or eyelash glue and dab your favorite glitter or metallic pigment on top. Voila, instant glitter liner!
Get ready to party with these intense metallic hues! Copper, gold, silver or bronze - pick the shade you like the most! Swipe the metallic eyeshadow on the lids, intensifying the outer corners of your eyes with black eyeshadow. Add some sparkles to the corners of your eyes and false lashes for a full dramatic effect.
