10 Holiday Makeup Looks To Get You Through The Rest Of 2020
‘Tis the season for last-minute holiday shopping, sippin’ on seasonal Starbucks faves and attending ALL the (virtual) holiday parties. But just because you’ll be celebrating from the comfort and safety of your home doesn’t mean you have to hold back on the glamour. So keep scrolling to see 10 on-trend makeup looks that will have you looking your best self all month long!
1. Dramatic Cat Eye + Nude Lip Combo by @princess.kaae_
Let’s start with a classic. If you’re feeling uninspired this year and can’t decide on a look, you can never go wrong with a dramatic cat eye and nude lip combo. PRO TIP: Add a pearl hair accessory to give your overall look an added holiday vibe!
2. A Sparkly Eye Look & A Bold Red Lip by @rogermuru
It doesn’t get more festive than a sparkly silver eye and a classic bold red lip. Just make sure to avoid orange-based red lipsticks! Warm tones can make your teeth appear yellower than they really are on camera, which is why you should always go with a blue-based red instead. 😉
3. Monochromatic Cranberry Moment by @iluvsarahii
From fashion to makeup, we live for a monochromatic moment—especially when the solo color of choice is as dark and luscious as this cranberry hue. Now excuse us as we dream about this look for the rest of 2020.
4. Glittery Green Eyeliner by @briannafoxmakeup
If you struggle with eyeshadow but are a cat eye pro, this one’s for you! Simply switch out your go-to black eyeliner pen for something glittery and festive AF. The best part about this look? You can recreate it with any color you want AND it doubles as a New Year’s look, too.
5. Fuchsia Lips by @elenitekeste
Want to make a statement the minute you join the Zoom party? Say hello to your new go-to lip color: A bold and bright fuchsia!
6. Festive Champagne Shimmer by @kristinaxmakeup
Not only is a shimmery champagne hue the epitome of the holiday season but it’s a neutral color so it pairs well with pretty much everything. Want to get ultimate color pay off from your glittery gold eyeshadow? Either wet your brush before dipping it in the eyeshadow or use a clean finger to pack the eyeshadow on your eyelid!
7. Back To Basics by @patrickta
If there’s anything we learned in 2020, it’s that bras, jeans and a full face of makeup are just not necessary anymore. So if you’re enjoying the makeup-free life but want to look put together with minimal effort, stick to the basics. To create a simple yet glam look, really all you need is six products: Concealer, mascara, an eye brow pencil, bronzer, blush and lip gloss. Anything else is just extra!
8. A Glittery/Smoky Eye Mash Up by @mannymua733
A classic smoky eye—but make it festive! In an industry where all black is the “uniform,” we had to include a dark smoky eye look to match. Simply create a classic smoky eye, add a sparkly silver shade in the center of the eyelids and pop on some false eyelashes to really pull the look together.
9. Winter Glow by @jackierileymakeup
Nothing screams, “I’m a skincare aficionado” like glowing, hydrated skin during a time when the weather is at its harshest. But don’t worry if your intense, multi-step skincare routine isn’t producing the results you want. You can always fake it til you make it by applying highlighter in key places like the cupid’s bow, across your cheekbones and along your collarbone.
10. Winter Blues by @sirjohn
When reds and greens just aren’t your vibe, reach for the blue eyeshadow instead and let your inner ice queen out!
