3 Easy Christmas Makeup Looks

The party season is upon us! It’s officially 9 days and counting until Christmas Day and the best time of year to get out your favourite dress and start experimenting with your makeup box. If your stuck for ideas or just want to try something new,  I’ve put my 3 go to looks below for some festive inspiration.

★ Look 1:  Super Glitter

This is SO EASY! I’m not the best at eye make up but this takes all of 10 minutes and is so fun for a party. Start by smoking out your cat eye shape in a black eye shadow or liner and then simply press the shadow into the shape as thickly as possible. I used the Stila Magnificent Metals Shadow (which is so good!) but any gold or glitter shadow will work, just spray some setting spray to wet it and you’ll get the best colour pay off. For lips I used a Kiko lipliner in a deep purple to keep with the Autumnal theme and some highlighter on my cheek bones.

★ Look 2:  Classic Cat Eye / Red Lip Combination

You can’t go wrong with this look, it suits everyone and it goes with everything. Start with your eyeliner and layer on a thick coat, I like to start by drawing a line up on each corner and then filling in the main shape across the lash line. Add a slick of red lipstick, some shimmery highlight and your done. Super simple and very gorgeous.

★ Look 3:  The Big Smoke

This is not about precision or the perfect blend of 3 colours, this is more a big brush and just go for it. Concentrating on the outer corner of your crease, swirl a dark colour in a shade of your choice until it’s well blended. Then pat a lighter colour along your lash line and in the inner corner and finish with a shimmery shade to add a Christmassy touch. I paired this with a simple nude lip and a light dusting of bronzer.

★★ Merry Christmas! ★★

Last Minute NYE Make Up Looks

Very last minute. Just like me.

Here’s a run down of my top 3 go to looks for the glamiest night of the year.

Kitty Cat Smokey Liner

Cute/simple and zero maintenance. This is a classic for anybody and perfect with any skimpy number. Simply smudge a kohl liner or some black shadow across your lids and finish with a slick of liquid liner and a nude lip.

Make Up Ideas (1 of 3)The Big Speakeasy

Lashings of mascara and the biggest boldest lip colour in your palette. Yes this is very high maintenance, as you’ll probably have to reapply after after sip and lets face it you’ll be taking lots of those! But it’s out the door quick and it’s easy to match with an outfit.

Make Up Ideas (2 of 3)The Golden Wonder

If nothing else wear jeans, your best tee and this look for a nonchalant but classic party look. Blend brown shadow into your lid and under eye and use my favourite festive product the Stila Magnificent Metals Shadow to add the sparkle. Make Up Ideas (3 of 3)
