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.
3. Glittery eyes
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
Red, orange, maroon are the Christmas colors, and so is fuchsia. This color will totally go with dresses of yellow, pink, green, blue, violet, and white. Fuchsia brings a vibrancy to your look, perfect for a winter get together.
7. Smoky, sultry eyes
From gorgeous lips, we come to gorgeous eyes. The eyes are beautifully highlighted with dark smoky eyeshadow and liner. The shadow is smudged at the edges, adding more drama to the eyes. Nude lips are perfect for this look. You can either blow dry your hair, or tie up your hair tightly.
8. A glam makeover
There is no rule that you can only highlight your eyes or lips. If you can balance your overall face, then you can easily go with dark lips and glam eyes.
