Get the perfect Christmas makeup
When the festive season comes around, many people want to do something extra special with their look. These simple tips for getting the best eye shadow, eyeliner and more for the holidays will ensure that you look your best at all of those Christmas parties. Now, you will be able to follow every Christmas trend – and create some of your own as well.
Go with glitter
Blending some shimmery powder into your eye shadow will create a stunning effect. Use two colours of eye shadow and some shimmer powder to get the best look. In this example, let’s use blue. Put some light blue or even white eye shadow around the edges of your eye lid, then work some darker blue shadow into the middle of the lid. Blend the two colours together to create a seamless shading effect. You can either add a layer of glitter over the top now, or you can mix some glitter in with the two eye shadow colours before you apply them.
Get a more dramatic look
One big trend for Christmas is getting a bolder look. One way to do this is by makin your lips as dramatic as possible. The trick here is to apply your lipstick as usual and then to take a lighter colour (as light as you dare – white is great, though coral pink will also do the trick) and apply that to the middle of your bottom lip. Blend it in to your darker lipstick and you instantly have a fuller pout. Add a larger than usual cat-eye on your eye lid with a black eyeliner and you have a very dramatic look.
Go for novelty
From candy cane stripes on your nails to green and red eye shadow, and from glitter dusted through your hair to flashing Christmas earrings, there are plenty of ways to add a little festive novelty to your look. So, why not get a little playful with your makeup bag this Christmas and bring some fun to the festive season? These looks don’t need to be tacky at all – alternating red or pink and white stripes on your nails are all that you need to do to show your fun side as you stride in to the party in your little black dress.
