‘Tis the season for awkward hometown run-ins, family reunions, and gatherings galore. Last holiday season, we were all dressed up with no where to go. This year, it feels like any occasion is a special one. So, to help you put your best foot forward, here are some beautiful holiday makeup looks to try.
No matter what your plans, these makeup looks will have you feeling and looking your best this holiday season.
Red Lips and Winged Eyeliner
A classic for a reason, red lips and winged black eyeliner make an absolutely beautiful combination. If sophistication and glamour are your goals, then there’s truly no better look for you.
Dramatic Green Eyes
The color green has been all the rage this year, so why not incorporate it in your holiday makeup looks? No matter the tone – emerald, forest, kelly, or mint – a green eyeshadow look is sure to steal any show (even if that show is just family dinner).
Good as Gold
Metallics are a must for the holidays. Try gold eyeshadow by itself for a classic look or mix it with a bold lip or a pop of color for a twist.
Jewel Toned Eyeliner
I have been loving the colorful eyeliner trend – it makes your eyes pop and makes any look 10x more fun. This holiday season, try pulling out the jewel-toned metallics for a stunning and festive pop of color.
If subtlety is more your thing, these subtle, shimmery looks are a perfect way for you to still participate in the festivities. Add a shimmery eyeshadow color to the inner corner of your eyes to achieve an absolutely etherial look.
