The holiday season means many things including beautiful festive makeup looks to rock during the cooler months. Warmer colors and bold lips are all popular trends for the season but it can be a struggle to find a way to switch it up when you are looking for a change. With all the fantastic makeup coming out for Christmas it’s a great opportunity to find some new makeup trends for this holiday season.
Whether you are attending holiday parties, bringing a festive feel to your workday or just want something fun to rock while running around on the weekends, there is never a bad time to try out something outside your comfort zone, and find a beautiful new look to rock.
Colored Eye Liner
Colored eyeliner might seem too bold but its such a great way to play up your natural eye color. If you have brown eyes try using a navy blue, grey, or dark purple to really play up the gold tones. For blue eyes try emerald green, or copper to contrast their natural color and make them pop. Green eyes should switch it up with violet or burgundy for a festive and eye-catching look. Urban Decay’s Glide on Eye Liner so smooth and come in a bunch of beautiful colors. Colourpop Creme Gel Eyeliner is also amazing, comes in some beautiful different colors, and goes on like a dream for only $5. Makeup trends for this holiday season are adding some fun color and I love it.
Rose Gold Eyes
Rose gold has been all the rage for a while now, and the trend making its way to the makeup world. Pair it with some neutral shadows in the crease to help everything blend together smoothly and you will be well on your way to a show-stopping look that will really make you stand out Rocking a pretty shimmer rose gold eye this holiday season will make sure that you are the star of the show. Elf’s Rose Gold Eyeshadow Palette is beautiful and the quality is amazing, blending so well, and an assortment of shades to use for a full look. I love rose gold makeup trends for this holiday season.
While a classic red lip is always a beautiful option for the holidays switching it up with some beautiful burgundy color will really stand out during the season. Warm and festive while still being a little different, this bold color can be dressed up for parties and special occasions or dressed down with simple eye looks to rock while running around on the weekends or at work. Liquid lip formulas are great for dark colors like this because they don’t run or smear. Morphe’s, Bloodshot is a beautiful shade, and the formula is great and it’s budget-friendly. Completely budge proof Tartiest Lip Paint in Frenemy is a must for those long days when you don’t have time to reapply.
Pops Of Silver
Silver like snow, what a beautiful festive touch to any makeup look. Add a touch of silver glow through highlight or a bright pop on the eyelids or the inner corner to really add a dramatic touch to any makeup look. Stila Magnificant Metals Shadows are beyond stunning and will add massive drama to a look for the holidays. For a pop of winter shimmer on the cheeks, Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powder in Pearl will give you all the holiday vibes.
Warm Smokey Eyes
Warm colors are all the rage this time of year from our home decor and wardrobe to makeup, everything seems to heat up at the temperature cools down. Smoking out some beautiful warm colors is a great way to add to a cozy vibe with an oversized sweater on some cute boots. Go bold and smokey for the evening or just smoke out a darker shade in the outer part of your eye for a simple but stunning look during the day. NYX Warm Neutrals Palette is a go-to must have in your collection to create a variety of warm-toned look all season long. Tartes Toasted Pallete is also a great option for creating unique warm looks this year with a great collection of mattes and shimmers to make it a great all in one palette.
This might sound a bit over the top and extra but adding a little pop of shimmer to the top or bottom lash line can really make your makeup pop. Glitter is so festive and just goes hand in hand with the holiday season. No matter if you are more a gold, silver, grey, black or pink kinda girl, there is a glitter eyeliner out there to help you sparkle at any event this year. Sleek Makeups Glitter Dip Eyeliner is absolutely beautiful for those girls who love a pop of dark metal glitter. Urban Decays Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner, comes in a color for everyone, goes on like a dream and is super pigmented.
Classic Red Lips
It wouldn’t be a holiday trend roundup with mentioning this Christmas lip color as old as time. There is something confidence boosting about slapping on some bold red lipstick and feeling like you can conquer the world. I love a real classic red, that just feels so appropriate for the holiday season. With all the eating and drinking during the festivities, typical lipsticks are way too much maintenance so I opt for long-lasting formulas that will stay in place for everything from wine to mistletoe kisses. Milani Amore Matt Lip Cream in Devotion is a staple in my collection and it smells like cupcakes. One of the best liquid lipstick formulas out there is made by Smashbox and there Always on Matte Lipstick in Bawse by Lilly Singh is a die for red shade that flatters so many different skin tones. Definetly one of the most popular makeup trends for this holiday season.
It’s never too late in the year to be a bronzed beautiful goddess, and during the holiday season, this is even more true. Warm colors are complimented the best by a warm complexion and some softly sculpted cheekbones. The best bronzer for a beautiful natural look is the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer, not only will the tropical scent help you feel like you are back on a warm beach somewhere but the smooth formula goes on like a dream giving the best warm glow to the skin, and making even you fair girls out there like me looking so beautifully sun-kissed. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil is also a stunning option for a variety of skin tones. The color and smoothness of the formula make it blend so perfectly.
Never one for blushes I have really gotten into the rosy cheeks trend this year. A perfect way to tie your look together they add the best little flush to the cheek giving you that just walked in from the cold kinda look that really make you look festive and ready to party. The NYX Ombre Blush in Mauve Me is the perfect color for the holiday season. One of the best makeup trends to inspire you this holiday season, give your face a beautiful kiss of color by swiping a soft color on the apples of your cheeks. Milani Powder Blush in Romantic Rose is a great choice as well for a touch of color to wear with any look.
Whats more festive then some gold shimmer? The answer is nothing. Poping some beautiful gold, metallic eyeshadow on the lid will make a beautiful addition to any basic holiday look. Glitter and intense metallics can be intimidating but keeping the rest of your makeup simple will help is be just the right amount of glam for any occasion. Tarte Chrome Paint Shadow in Pot of Gold would be perfect all over the lid for a night out or just a pop on the inner corner for a little something during the day. NYX Makeup Pigments need some glitter glue but once in place they are stunning for a holiday party or a night out on a bar crawl with friends
