Just like any good holiday fete, party makeup looks should be fun. We love the natural look for day to day, but a festive bash means one thing—it’s time to break out the glam. Here are some fun (and easy!) looks to try to get you in the yuletide spirit.
Leave dry, winter-tested skin in the dust with the magic of a creamy highlighter. Pick a liquid, cream or powder formula and apply strategically in a “U” shape at the very top of your cheekbones and around your eyes. Blend well. Voila! A glam glow.
Pick any metallic of your choice—we love a rich bronze or shimmery gold—and swipe it across your lid with a heavy touch to deposit enough pigment. Complement the color with a dark brown, charcoal or deep plum shadow in the crease and down through the corner of your outer eye.
Liner and Lashes
Line your eyes with black eyeliner. Use a liquid or gel formula and an angle brush for a subtle cat-eye or trace your eyes with a pencil, smudging the lines for an extra smoky look. If you’ve been using LiLash, you’ll have no need for falsies. Instead, coat your lashes with black mascara, wiggling the wand from the base of the roots up to the ends.
If you’ve gone with a bold eye, balance the look with a soft nude lip. Line your lips in a skin-tone beige, then fill in with a creamy flesh-tone lipstick with just a drop of pink. If you’ve kept your eye look neutral to let your long LiLash eyelashes speak for themselves, have fun at holiday time with a bright cherry-red lipstick. Blot gently on a tissue to keep from bleeding. Your lips and lashes will be the stars of the show.
