Modern Holiday Makeup
Makeup Mirror blog
There’s no more perfect occasion to wear bright makeup colors or glitter than the festive party-filled holiday season. Here are a few new, modern ways you can make an impact when you walk into a room full of celebrating friends and family.
1. Go for the “wow factor” with your lashes.
False eyelashes have gone to new heights. Try a fun, glamorous pair in gold or silver with glitter on the tips or feathers on the outer corners.
2. Play up the eyes with unique liners.
Using a black, dark-gray or navy-blue eyeliner with gold, silver or multicolor shimmer is one of the easiest and quickest ways to look festive.
3. Wear red -- on the eyes.
Try pinky-red eye shadow with a bit of a metallic finish. The trick to avoiding overkill is to use a sheer formula that’s buildable. Pair it with a glistening gold on the inner corners of the eyes for an elegant glow.
4. Take your holiday manicure up a notch.
Try a bronze, holographic or multicolored glitter nail polish. Or deck out your nails with a two-toned “couture manicure” with burgundy and gold tips (a la a French manicure) or a pointier nail shape paired with bold fuchsia color.
5. Shimmer and glimmer never get old.
The easiest and quickest way to get the holiday glow is to use an illuminating cream or liquid mixed with foundation or tinted moisturizer. Add a touch to your brow bones, cheekbones and tip of the nose.
6. Take a new direction with your eyebrows.
Use brow powder in a slightly darker shade than your brows to create a stronger, thicker brow. Or experiment with intoxicating shimmer brow pencils for that champagne or cocktail outing.
