HOLIDAY MAKE-UP TRENDS TO KEEP YOU FESTIVE
Don’t let the winter blues get you down! Living in colour is easy during the holiday season with the newest makeup trends.
MORE THAN A HINT OF BLUSH – GET CHEEKY!
1. Flushed Cheeks
No better time than the winter season to embrace this trend! Apply blush on the “apples” of your cheek to get the” kissed by cold weather” look.
2. C is for Colour
Don’t shy away from bold, beautiful colours on your cheeks and don’t stop there. The colour can also be applied to your cheekbones and temples creating a lifting effect. Look for colours like fuschias, corals, rosy tones, and oranges.
SAY “EYE” DO TO THESE LOOKS
3. Eyes “Underlined”
A popular graphic eye trend that’s subtle and easy enough to pull off, too! Just start at the inner corner of your eye and follow the waterline along the bottom lash line to the outer corner of the eye.. Get creative with colour if you dare!
4. Colourful Underliner
Get creative with colour. Don’t shy away from being noticed.
5. Smoky Underliner
Once you’ve got the waterline taken care of, draw eyeliner along the bottom of the lower lash line and smudge to achieve that sultry, smoky effect.
6. Smoky Eyes – 90s style
An easy, “I slept in my eye makeup” look! Simply smudge your eyeliner (pencil works best) into your lash lines and swipe a smoky shadow across your lids. Of course, don’t forget your mascara!
7. Smoky Eyes with a Pop of Colour
Peek-a-boo! This eye look is not just mysterious, but mezmerizing too! Add a bright colour to the smoky lid or just a hint in the corner of the eyes.
8. Oh Christmas Tree!
With the holidays right around the corner, embrace a festive green and get creative!
9. Bright Blues Light Up Winter
Blue eyeshadow doesn’t have to give you the blues… go for a hint of blue, or be bold and make a statement.
10. Tinsel Trends
Sparkly tinsel isn’t just for trees – go for glam with metallic eyeshadows in silver and gold.
11. Heavy Metal
Metallic eyeshadow looks go beyond traditional metals – think pinks, and other bright colours. Shimmer your way into 2023!
12. Pastel Presence
Make your presence known – be demure with a light wash of colour or be daring and really pack a powerful punch of colour.
Crystal-lize your holiday glam with little jewels to accent your eyes. Think brows or the inner corner of your eyes. “Diamonds” are a girl’s best friend!
14. Graphic Wings & Liner
Be creative and bold with this geometric trend. Use striking colours or stick with black. Either way you’ll be making a strong statement.
15. Pearly Embellishments
Pearls aren’t just for wearing as jewellery – add a little glam to your look. Use them around your eyes or anywhere on your face for a little extra something.
16. Brush up on brows
A little pencil and some brow gel will definitely help you make a statement.
17. Bleached Brows
While this may not have mass appeal, it’s still trending. Lighter coloured eyebrows help your eyes stand out.
18. Curly Lashes
Dust off your eyelash curler and get ready to pump up the volume with a good mascara! lashes are always in style. Play around with fancy, fun faux lashes because this is the perfect season for it! Get inspired by some of these festive looks.
While natural lashes are in – if you still want faux lashes, look for wispy-looking ones that are not too dark or obvious.
20. Fuchsia fun
Eyes really pop with fuchsia.
21. Classic red
There’s a reason the red lip is a “classic” look – it works in every season! So be bold and show off your red lips confidently.
22. And not-so red, reds
The other reason red is so hot is that there’s a shade for every skin tone. Think brick red if fire-engine red isn’t you.
23. Blue Raspberry
Sounds like a slushy, we know, and it’s equally sw-eeet!
24. High-Definition Shine
Sparkle and shine with a good lip gloss – clear over your favourite colour or treat yourself to a new glossy colour!
25. Lip-smudge vs. Lipstick
Opt for a more natural flushed look. Dab, smudge and blot your favourite liquid lipstick onto your lips.
LOVE THE SKIN YOU’RE IN
26. Dewy Skin
The holidays are all aglow – and so is your skin! Opt for a beautiful natural or sparkly glow with a light dusting of highlighter in all the right places – Cupid’s bow, cheekbones, and brow bones.
Show off your natural beauty and blur the lines of beauty. Go for washes of soft colours that work with the natural shape and contours of your face.
28. All-in-one Products
Products doing double-duty are all the rage. Pare down your routine with a cheek balm you can use on your cheeks as well as lips.
29. Tinted Sunscreen
Sun protection with a barely there look. Tinted sunscreens will be your best friend!
- Glazed temples
Highlight the temples instead of the cheeks for an eye-catching look.
With so many beautiful looks to choose from, you’ll be the shining star at this year’s holiday parties!
