Get The Best Makeup Look Just In Time For Holiday Season!
It is never too early to welcome the holly-days! Malls, restaurants and popular streets are already decked out in festive gears, so why shouldn’t you?After all, it IS the most wonderful time of the year.
Now we are not saying you should preen like a Queen, but there are a myriad of ways to make your look more wearable for a night out with your girlfriends and even full-blown parties! Read on to get some tips on how to look made up without much effort every time.
Not to sound cliché but the eyes are the windows to your soul, so what better way to decorate your window with some eye-catching (no pun intended) colours. Skip your regular eyeshadow for a rich sparkly hue and blend a darker shade into the outer creases of your eyes for some depth and dimension. If a sparkly eyeshadow sounds too intense for you, swap the look for a milder option with a coloured or glitter liner, which is also great to add a subtle glimmer to your peepers.
Adding a blusher is a makeup step that is often overlooked in our daily rush-to-work routine. But that swoop of colour on your cheeks can actually brighten up tired skin and highlight your cheekbones! Not to mention, it looks extra flushed when you are under the “ahem” mistletoe. Bonus! Opt for a pink base shimmer rather than the usual champagne or golden hue for an extra touch of rosiness. If you are staying out late for a party, use a cream blush so it stays on longer for a blushing great night!
You don’t need someone to kiss in order to show of those puckers! First, keep your lips plump and moisturized with a hydrating lip balm. Once you have smooth canvas to work on, play around with some colours! A bright red shade is usually the trend during the festive season but feel free to play around with different textures and colour shades. Go for a totally metallic lip or if you prefer playing it safe, opt for a classic gloss for a full, juicy pout. Remember to tone down your eyes if you want your lips to be the focus of your look.
Rejoice! Tis the season to bring out the brightest and most glittery of all nail polish shades. Just remember this rule of thumb, neutral and tonal hues are great for short nails as it helps elongate your finger while dark and gothic shades add a dramatic flair to longer nails. For an added dazzle, coating your polish with a layer of sparkling gold shimmer will accentuate your fingers and nail that look! Just be sure to protect your nails with a topcoat polish before applying all those layers.
