5 Makeup Looks to Rock This Holiday Season

No one suspected we’d still be socially distancing from our friends and family in December - yet here we are almost at the end of the year, and it looks like our holiday celebrations will look a little different. It’s a bummer, but there are ways to keep the holiday spirit alive! 

Think festive Zoom Holiday Parties, intimate family gatherings, yummy food, and gorgeous makeup looks that scream holiday cheer. 

We’re sharing our top 5 makeup looks to help get you excited for the festive season. 

Look #1: Gold Shimmer

Have some fun with your holiday look this year, and play around with shimmery champagne shadows. Gold shadows work beautifully with all skin tones, and the sparkle makes everyone’s eyes pop! This look is perfect for Christmas dinner and your office’s ‘New Year’s Eve Zoom Toast.’

Look #2: Red Lips


Few things are as timeless and classic as a red lip for the holiday season. Complete your look with a bold, deep iconic red lip like the Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick by SEPHORA COLLECTION. 

Look #3: Heavenly Glow


For an ultra-glam look, try bumping up the highlighter on your cheekbones. Give your skin a brighter, dewy glow while helping give your cheeks a little extra definition. To achieve a glowing holiday look, it’s all about finding the perfect highlighter. 

We love the Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed Highlighter by BECCA Cosmetics in Champagne Pop. This bestselling shade has a soft gold hue with peachy-pearl undertones that flatter all skin tones. 

Look #4: Classic Black Cat Eyes


Sharp black wings and feathery lashes complete this eye-opening holiday look. A beautiful, timeless cat-eye pairs exceptionally well with dramatic lashes. We can’t get enough of the Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner by Stila; this long-standing cult favorite makes for the most precise cat-eye. Complete the look with a couple of coats of Synergy Mascara and a nude lip for that full lash look. When you’re doing bold liner, let your eyes be the star of the show, and your lips play the supporting role. 

Look #5: Soft Pink Pallet 

Soft pinks are a super-easy way to add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral holiday makeup look. For a fresh and effortless vibe, go for a natural-looking base with pops of soft pink eyeshadow and rosy blush. Finish off this low-key look with a glossy lip for additional shine.
