Sing it with me – it’s the holiday season! This is my favorite time of the year; from the movies to the music to the beautiful decor. For artists and creatives, it is just one big ball of inspiration! This year, I put together these 4 holiday makeup looks that you are going to see. Not only are they holiday-inspired and oh so festive, they are easy too!
I am a true believer in the idea that you don’t need to use dozens of products to create a beautiful makeup look. That’s why I used the same base makeup on all of these looks and kept the number of products I used to a minimum. It’s easier for you and your wallet!
Here is what I used for the base makeup:
That is a really easy and effective base makeup look that I always go to. It’s versatile and provides my oily skin with a good matte foundation. Now, let’s get into the good stuff! Here are my 4 favorite, trendy, and simple holiday makeup looks.
A Sparkly Statement
The glossy eyelid look has been a huge trend this past year, along with iridescent textures. I wanted to try these trends out myself, and I loved it! It was such a different look for me, but I found it surprisingly flattering paired with the velvety red lip.
If you want to make the statement without all the sparkle, dab a clear lip gloss on your lids instead!
Icy & Neutral
The eyes: Lorac Pro Palette 2; “Lt. Brown” in the crease, “Snow” & “Beige” on the lid and brow bone
When I did this look for the first time, it totally gave me ice queen vibes! If you’re a lover of neutral shades and subtle looks, than this one is perfect for you. I kept things neutral by sweeping a warm brown shade in my crease alongside the matte lip. That helped the light, icy shades really pop!
Edgy & Metallic
The eyes: L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner in “Black” ; blended out with “Black” from the Lorac palette
Another trend I loved this year was metallic lips! This berry lip color is super sparkly and pairs wonderfully against a smoked out winged liner. I achieved the eye look by roughly drawing a wing with a pencil liner and then using a black eyeshadow to blur the lines. I then sharpened the line a bit with a makeup removing wipe. It’s an edgier and simpler way to achieve a cat eye!
Fun & Festive
The eyes: NYX Slim Eye Pencil in “Emerald City” & Covergirl Intensify Me! Liquid Liner in “Emerald” ; Anastasia Beverly Hills in “American Doll” – dots; “Snow” from the Lorac palette – inner highlight
This one is for all the Christmas junkies out there! Colored winged liner is so much fun to experiment with and not as scary to wear as you might think. To make it even more festive, I decided to add the red accent dots using a pointy eyeliner brush and liquid lipstick. Super fun, right?!
I will definitely be sporting the last one to all of my holiday festivities coming up… or maybe those sparkly lids. Too many fun ideas to choose from! I hope you found some inspiration in these looks, or at least had some fun looking at them. Happy Holidays!
