The 5 Must-Have Holiday Makeup Looks

Hey ladies! Are you looking for some new Christmas and New Year's makeup ideas to get your holiday parties started? Let us help inspire you with our top 5 must-have holiday makeup looks! You are sure to be the prettiest present under the tree this year.

Take a look at these makeup tips & looks to get you through all of your pre-Christmas drinks with friends, main traditional festivities with family, and while you party it up on New Year's Eve!

Tip 1- Golden Eye Shadow and Dark Liner

This classy golden glam look will have you ready for all your Christmas and New Year's parties! The metallic shimmer will give you that extra holiday sparkle, but because the color is between the lid and the crease (and not all the way up to the brow bone) it is still very chic & modern. To make your eyes pop, line the top and bottom of your eyes with a dark grey or black charcoal liner to get a sultry finish. If you are feeling extra spirit, you can add rhinestones and at the corners of your eyes and on your cheeks. 

For this golden look, check out the abstract butterfly look:

Tip 2- Glam (Fake) Lashes, Get Mistletoe Ready

Over-the-top lashes can be fun during the holiday season. Don't be afraid to try out different types of lashes at this time of year, including falsies made from feathers or even lace. This full drama look with lace lashes and green shadow will surely turn heads when you walk in the room. If you are not brave enough to wear false lashes in other occasion, then Christmas and New Year's are the right occasions to put them. Straight, clean brows and a matte dark coral lip finish the look.

Tip 3- Wintry Blue & White to Become a Snow Angel

No need to roll around in the snow to create this angelic look! The longest blue & white feather false lashes are the key to creating this heavenly look. Ruby pink lips, cherub pink cheeks, and rhinestones top it off. Everyone will love this fun and elegant look as you show off your angelic side.

Tip 4- Classic Red Lips Bring Yuletide Joy

Cranberry gloss on your lips, a smudged cat-eye and full brows create a sultry and festive look that is not overdone. We’re in love with this evening look that shows off your radiant skin with a touch of blush, long lashes and a powerful red pout for a flawless finish. We've embellished this look with holly and ivy if you're bold enough to try!

Tip 5- Costume Makeup, Elsa the Ice Queen

Before you go out and build a snowman, showcase your inner ice queen with this stunning eye makeup! The pearlized violet hues are ultra flattering for all eye colors and on trend this season. If you haven’t tried purple makeup yet, now is the time. Create your glamorous bold eye with light and dark purple eye shadow. Add a classic black winged liner that is edgy yet wearable. Lips are coated with a matte wild orchid color to let your eyes really take the stage. Draw or stick on some flirty snowflakes on your eyes and cheeks if you want a more dramatic wintry look.
