Saving the best for last: when is our style more on point than during holiday season? beautypress shows you how to put some glamour into your makeup look!

Starry Eyed

Christmas is for most people the most beautiful time of year. Many of us are already impatient with the idea of imagining the first decorations. Like outdoor decorations in the form of angels, Christmas trees and sparkling candles, your make-up must shine and do not hesitate to work some magic! A big hit this season is applying metallic eye makeup such as a golden or silver colored eyeliner. Eye shadows in warm colors such as olive, burgundy or bronze will bring a little color and glamor to your eyes. Finally, dabbing a highlighter will boost your complexion to perfection by bringing a subtle shine.

Christmas Nails

During the holidays, it is finally the opportunity to bring out the varnishes with iridescent reflections! With brilliant particles and patterns, your varnish will compete with your baubles. For a discreet shine, apply the varnish of the color of your choice then choose a subtle shimmery effect top coat to put a little madness in your manicure while remaining classy.

Holiday Pout

It’s finally the time to slip into your evening gown and slink down those stairs in style. Dark red lips will pair extremely well with an evening gown. Carefully draw on your liner with a precision brush and accompany these two features with a porcelain complexion – the best of allies of the lips to make them center stage. If you opt for a lighter shade, you can experiment with a more sophisticated look and use dark shades on the nails!

Natural and Subtle

For an alternative to extravagant makeup, use nude shades. This makeup is ideal if you already wear glossy and colorful Christmas outfit. Apply a natural, brown eye shadow to your eyes and nude lip-gloss. This elegant and tasteful make-up fits all the styles.

Holiday Hair

This season is all about sleek and straight hair. To accompany a statement dress and eyecatching makeup, hair must stay well kept. Use a smoothing shampoo and conditioner in the shower and follow up with a smoothing prep product like a balm or leave in conditioner. Blow dry in sections and heat up the straighteners – remember to apply a protection spray first! Once straightened, apply a firm hold hairspray and spritz on a shine product to swish that hair with sass all night!
