20 Christmas Makeup Looks to Make You Stand Out

With Christmas knocking at the door, there is so much work to be done. By now you have already bought the Christmas tree, and its trinkets; now it is time to decorate them. It is also the time to sit with your shopping lists and be sure there is nothing left for the last minute. With all these in mind, it seems that the ladies are running around the town to get the best for their family, house, and themselves.

Ladies, you have the fancy dresses, matching shoes and bags, and makeup sets to stand out from the crowd and look gorgeous. This article will give you some best Christmas makeup looks for you to try this year.

1. Soft makeup to start the day

    You can start the day with this soft makeup. Right after your shower, loosely curl your half wet hair, and set it with some hair spray. Don’t over spray or it will look stiff, and not natural. Fix your base with a skin toned foundation and loose powder. Opt for light smoky eyes, thin eyeliner, and darken your lashes with two to three coats of mascara. Add a pinkish hue on your cheeks, and finish your look with a light red color on your lips. You can play around with the lip color and match it according to your dress.

    2. Simple yet classy

      One of my favorite Christmas makeup looks this holiday is this quick, simple, yet elegant makeup. If you are in a hurry, or simply want to stay off cosmetics in the morning, then this is for you. All it takes is thin liner on the top lids, a baby pink color on the cheeks, and a nude lipstick. You can also coat your pouts with pink gloss. Tie your hair in a fishtail braid, a high ponytail, or a loose bun to finish off this simply yet elegant look.

        If you don’t have time to do a whole face of makeup, try this shortcut. Just add glittery eyeliner on your top lids. To compliment your glittery eyes, it is best you choose a natural lip color or simple gloss.

        4. Smoky under the eyes

          This is yet another soft makeup look that will look great in daytime. Here, instead of focusing on the upper eyelids, the liners are drawn with a smoky effect on the lower lids. Two coats of mascara, and you will have a pair of dramatic eyes. You can go with light lipstick, or you can also opt for a darker shade.

          5. Dark and beautiful eyes

            If you are looking for gorgeous makeup, then emphasize your look entirely on your eyes. Wear extra lashes, put two to three coats of mascara, and, most importantly, kohl your eyes, both the lids, with kohl pencil and liner. Rosy cheeks, a light pink lipstick and a fancy hairdo will complete the look.

            6. Fuchsia lips

                                          5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

                                          5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

                                          Sleeping next to your partner can be a satisfying experience and is typically seen as the mark of a stable, healthy home life. However, many more people struggle to share a bed with their partner than typically let on. Sleeping beside someone can decrease your sleep quality which negatively affects your life. Maybe you are light sleepers and you wake each other up throughout the night. Maybe one has a loud snoring habit that’s keeping the other awake. Maybe one is always crawling into bed in the early hours of the morning while the other likes to go to bed at 10 p.m.

                                          You don’t have to feel ashamed of finding it difficult to sleep with your partner and you also don’t have to give up entirely on it. Common problems can be addressed with simple solutions such as an additional pillow. Here are five fixes for common sleep issues that couples deal with.

                                          Advertising

                                          1. Use a bigger mattress to sleep through movement

                                          It can be difficult to sleep through your partner’s tossing and turning all night, particularly if they have to get in and out of bed. Waking up multiple times in one night can leave you frustrated and exhausted. The solution may be a switch to a bigger mattress or a mattress that minimizes movement.

                                          Look for a mattress that allows enough space so that your partner can move around without impacting you or consider a mattress made for two sleepers like the Sleep Number bed.[1] This bed allows each person to choose their own firmness level. It also minimizes any disturbances their partner might feel. A foam mattress like the kind featured in advertisements where someone jumps on a bed with an unspilled glass of wine will help minimize the impact of your partner’s movements.[2]

                                          2. Communicate about scheduling conflicts

                                          If one of you is a night owl and the other an early riser, bedtime can become a source of conflict. It’s hard for a light sleeper to be jostled by their partner coming to bed four hours after them. Talk to your partner about negotiating some compromises. If you’re finding it difficult to agree on a bedtime, negotiate with your partner. Don’t come to bed before or after a certain time, giving the early bird a chance to fully fall asleep before the other comes in. Consider giving the night owl an eye mask to allow them to stay in bed while their partner gets up to start the day.

                                          3. Don’t bring your technology to bed

                                          If one partner likes bringing devices to bed and the other partner doesn’t, there’s very little compromise to be found. Science is pretty unanimous on the fact that screens can cause harm to a healthy sleeper. Both partners should agree on a time to keep technology out of the bedroom or turn screens off. This will prevent both partners from having their sleep interrupted and can help you power down after a long day.

                                          4. White noise and changing positions can silence snoring

                                          A snoring partner can be one of the most difficult things to sleep through. Snoring tends to be position-specific so many doctors recommend switching positions to stop the snoring. Rather than sleeping on your back doctors recommend turning onto your side. Changing positions can cut down on noise and breathing difficulties for any snorer. Using a white noise fan, or sound machine can also help soften the impact of loud snoring and keep both partners undisturbed.

                                          5. Use two blankets if one’s a blanket hog

                                          If you’ve got a blanket hog in your bed don’t fight it, get another blanket. This solution fixes any issues between two partners and their comforter. There’s no rule that you have to sleep under the same blanket. Separate covers can also cut down on tossing and turning making it a multi-useful adaptation.

                                          Rather than giving up entirely on sharing a bed with your partner, try one of these techniques to improve your sleeping habits. Sleeping in separate beds can be a normal part of a healthy home life, but compromise can go a long way toward creating harmony in a shared bed.
