Sometimesthey need a bit of inspiration in order to find which the best type of makeup for them is.
And that is where we come in. today we have prepared for you a couple of makeup ideas suitable for the festivity and glamorousness of the holiday. Check out what we have prepared for you!
#1 Golden Sparkle and Red Lips
The first of our suggestions will probably come as no surprise since the two most popular colors of Christmas are golden and, of course, Santa’s favorite red. You could make both your eyes and your lips pop at the same time without looking too much since the occasion is a special one.
You will need some golden sparkle eyeshadow and some dark red lipstick, probably in a burgundy color.
Apply primer first on your eyelids and under them. Then using a natural brown shade as a transition shade. Apply it all over the crease of your eyelids and on the inner corner of your eyes.
Then apply the golden sparkling eyeshadow on the center of your eyelid by dabbing the brush a little there. Make sure you do not go over the crease or outside the frame of the eyes.
Then using a blending brush apply some dark yellow, or dark golden shade on the outer part of your eyelids to blend the golden sparkle with it.
Finally, you need to apply some bright white eyeshadow color on the inner corner of your eyes to make them pop. Do not forget to apply a generous layer of mascara on your eyelids, or even some falsies if you prefer. And your eye makeup is done.
As for your lips, you can exfoliate them a little before you begin applying your makeup to get rid of any dead skin and to make them smooth and plumper. Then you can outline them using the same burgundy color lip pencil, or even a slightly darker shade.
Then apply the burgundy color lipstick on the upper and then on the bottom lip. Let the lipstick dry without touching your lips together. This way the color will remain the same and will last a bit longer.
#2 Dark Grey or Silver Sparkle with Nude Lips
The next idea in our list is not as outstanding as the first one but this does not mean it is not as elegant. It again includes some sparkle which is absolutely necessary during this season. This time it is dark grey, or silver sparkle
You will need some sparkling grey or silver eyeshadow, transition shade, white eyeshadow, an eyeliner, and mascara.
Apply the sparkling grey or silver color on the center of your eyelid without going over the crease.
Then using the transition shade which needs to be in some brown hue similar to your own skin tone, apply it on the crease blending it together with the grey color.
Then apply some white eyeshadow color on the brow bone and the inner corner of your eye.
After that you need to apply the eyeliner on the top lash line. If you want, you could also apply some on the bottom lash line as well.
Finish by applying a generous layer of mascara both on your upper and lower eyelids, or if you prefer you could also apply some falsies for a longer and more voluminous lashes.
As for the lips, you need to choose some lipstick in a nude color because this will be the best kind of color that will look good with the grey/silver eye makeup.
And this is it!
