Christmas party time is all about the glamour, glitz and glow. Whether you’re planning on using a professional makeup artist to create your evening look for the festive season or you’re applying your own signature party look, here are a few sensational Christmas party makeup ideas to take inspiration from.
Sprinkle on the glitter
Is there a better time to wear glitter than during the festive season? Sprinkle on the glitter and get creative! Whether it’s a glittery eyeshadow or a lustrous lipstick with a coating of glitter over the top, you can go as subtle or bold as you like.
Gothic makeup is perfect for the party season. Dark wine matte lips, black smoky eyes and voluminous lashes are the ultimate sultry look. Fake a wide-eyed look by using faux lashes – these will enhance the definition and length of your lashes with ease.
A natural twist
If you don’t enjoy wearing dark shades, keep your makeup natural but opt for a classic red lipstick. This sleek, Hollywood look is sophisticated and elegant, plus it looks beautiful with any style of outfit.
Icy hues are perfect for wearing in winter. Give your complexion a frosted hue by opting for a lilac or pale blue toned highlighter, swept over your cheekbones. You could complement this by applying a blue or purple eyeshadow with eye gems dotted just above the lash line. Complete this look by choosing a rose or medium toned pink lip.
Metallic shades are fun, yet contemporary. Choose from metallic cream eyeshadows in gold, bronze or silver and pair with a metallic lip for extra bling! A glowing complexion works well with metallic hues so wear a dewy foundation, hydrating powder and a little highlighter on your cheeks, collarbone and under your eyebrows.
