The silly season tends to be a non-stop whirlwind of Secret Santas, dinner parties, and Michael Buble. With your social calendar being fuller than ever, what better time to experiment with your makeup looks? Embrace the Christmas spirit by injecting some red and green into your look or let glitter become your best friend and emulate the star atop of your Christmas tree. Here are five looks for your festive makeup inspiration.

Gold glitter eyes

Gold glitter eyeshadow is the perfect balance between wearable and dramatic. Gold is one of those colours that works with all skin tones, meaning anyone can rock this Christmas makeup look. Pair your gold glitter eyeshadow with a cat eye to amp up the drama, or even replace your liquid eyeliner with gold glitter and create a glitter feline flick!

Green eyeshadow

Green eyeshadow may sound unusual, but when executed correctly, it’s a unique and bold look that will make your eyes pop. Go for soft shades of instead of bright, deep tones. If you’re after a more casual festive makeup look but still want to experiment with green shades, opt for a green eyeliner.

Brown smokey eye

There are few looks as versatile as a brown smokey eye; it’s less dramatic than your traditional smokey eye, but doesn’t compromise on the smoulder factor. This means it’s perfect for your festive makeup look. The versatility of a brown smokey eye means you can dress it up or down. Pair it with a nude lipstick for a casual daytime look, or a bold lip for a more vampy nighttime look.

Multi-coloured eyeshadow

Mix and match whatever shades you please for a fun, eye-catching Christmas makeup look. You can either use two shades of the same colour or go for bright, contrasting colours. Your two tone look can include one shade on your lid and one under your lash line, or it can be an ombre look that moves from left to right. For the festive season, why not pair gold and red or blue and silver?

Bold red lips

This one may seem a bit obvious, but bold red lips were made to be worn at Christmas. The virtues of a bold red lip are endless, from making your teeth look whiter to making your lips appear fuller. If you have a lighter complexion, we recommend opting for pink-based shades such as raspberry red; if you have a medium complexion, an orange red will perfectly complement your skin tone. And if you have a dark complexion, deep, brown-red lipsticks are your best friend.
