It’s the most wonderful time of the year, cue the Christmas songs, peppermint candy canes, obsession with all things sparkly and white, and of course, spending some much needed time with loved ones and family.
Christmas is right around the corner and if you’re still trying to check off all those names from your gift list, then have no fear, this is one less thing you have to worry about.
When it comes to festive makeup, there’s so many looks you could go with, but we’ve condensed the list down to seven Christmas makeup ideas that will have everyone feeling the Christmas spirit!
Christmas Makeup Looks for 2017
1.Deck the halls with green eyes, fa la la la !
Is it even Christmas if you don’t incorporate shades of green into your makeup look?
Let’s face it, green is the color of the season. Whether you’re thinking shades of mint green, or more regal tones like emerald and sea green, you can be sure to set the scene at any office or family party this year.
You can tone it up by using loose glitter pigments or simply stick to the basics with a muted, matte green shade all over the eyelids.
It’s up to you to play around and get the perfect look for your holiday party scenes. Trust us though, this is a sure fire win when it comes to Christmas eye makeup this year. Check out below video.
2. Smokey eye with a twinkling twist:
We’ve all tried a basic smokey eye at least once in our life. Whether you opted for black or grey shades, to brown, neutral tones, a smokey eye is the easiest, and quite frankly, fastest way to look sultry, elegant, and different.
This Christmas, why not amp up the style and opt for a little twist. Instead of finishing off the look with the usual matte tones, why not apply some glitter on the center of your eye for the perfect sparkle this holiday season.
3. All these bright lights:
Christmas and brightly colored fairy lights are the perfect pair. What better way to get in the holiday spirit than to deck your gorgeous eyes in the bright, prismatic colors of all the fairy, bauble lights we see this time of the year.
Yes, this one is a little more out there, but who said playing it safe is ever all that fun?
Christmas is a time for fun, for everyone, and that includes doing your makeup. So go all out and explore the different shades that you normally wouldn't opt for. Why not add a little sparkle with some glitter liner or sparkly shadow too?
Play around with reds, oranges, yellows and bright pinks. Stand out from the crowd and let your imagination run wild!
4. Tone it down, jewel it up:
Let’s not forget about the fact that you can totally tone down your makeup look and incorporate some heavy jewelry in your outfit to make your festive holiday look seem elegant, put together, and of course, glamorous.
Whether you opt for chunky necklaces or bold, unique headpieces or earrings, you can always work your makeup to compliment your jewels.
Try sticking to a basic smokey eye, or simply a winged liner look with nude lips, then pair these with your loud, beautiful jewelry pieces.
5. Let the highlight do the talking:
2017 was most definitely the year of the highlighter. Whether it was rainbow highlighter or plain old ‘this-will-blind-you’ highlighter.
It’s no lie that a strong base of makeup, with little to no eye makeup and nude lips, paired with an intense highlight will make you shine like the inner queen that you are.
Whether you’re into cream or powder highlights, a lot of them are build-able, giving you the chance to layer the product on until you reach the desired reflect level.
6. Lash on, girl, lash on:
Imagine this, bold brows, a perfect winged liner, big, fluffy lashes, and that’s it. Imagine if just the bare minimum was enough to turn heads. Here’s the thing, it is.
This Christmas, give yourself a little break.
Things are hectic this time of year and sometimes, realistically, you may not have all that much time on your hands to even get ready for the biggest parties of the year.
So why not opt for some bold lashes to make your look reach the next level without having to invest too much time.
7. Red sealed kisses:
Red and Christmas go together like hot chocolate on a cold winter’s day. They’re perfect for one another.
Red is the hottest shade this season. If you find yourself torn between what to wear, red is your go-to. When it comes to Christmas makeup ideas, there’s no difference.
A bold, red lip, will turn heads as well as make you feel as festive as ever. The best part? It’s as easy as finishing your Christmas dinner.
Whether you opt for a warm, wine-red, or a lighter, orange-red, any shade on the spectrum of red will showcase your look. The lip can be paired with either a basic eye look, or simply, no eye look at all.
Whether your lips are the focus of your look or not, having them there will most definitely make your entire appearance that much more in the holiday spirit.
Happy Holidays and Happy Experimenting!
Whatever you choose to go for this year, don’t forget, Christmas is a time for fun, family, and memories.
So make the most of this season. Whether that means going all out, or bringing it back to the basics, we’re sure that your holidays will be filled with good times, and great cheer!
