Christmas is almost here, as well as New Year’s Eve, which means that it is time for the glamorous makeup. No matter whether you like it or not, it is definitely a must when it comes to holidays. Many girls get overly excited, which is exactly why they tend to make a lot of mistakes when it comes to their look. Don’t worry if you are one of them – here are five holiday makeup tips you need to know.
Highlighter Should Be Your Best Friend
Highlighter makes your skin looks radiant and super shiny. It acts as a brightener, and it should be applied under the eyes, along the nose and under the chin. It is also a good idea to apply a fine line above the eyebrows – this will pull your face up and make it look slimmer. Blend those lines by dabbing them with your fingers. Here is an extra tip: if you want your lips to look fuller, apply a highlighter to your Cupid’s bow.
It definitely adds a touch of glamour and a pinch of drama to your look. Applying a shimmery eyeshadow just above the iris and on the inner corner of your eyes will open them up and make them look bigger, which will look amazing in photos. For Christmas, use silver and metallic shades. It is important to know that if you go for this kind of eye makeup, you should avoid applying shimmer somewhere else on your face. This would definitely be too much.
Go Natural and Use Nude Makeup
Dressing up is certainly a perfect occasion for a glamorous makeup. However, a nude look is always a good idea. Besides the fact that it looks chic and subtle, it will make your fabulous clothes stand out. When there is not much of colour to your makeup, a flawless skin tone becomes the most important. Apply sheer foundation, use soft browns on your eyelids and a peachy lipstick on your lips. Use organic cosmetics and organic face makeup.
Exfoliate, It’s an Instant Complexion Lifter
Despite the popular belief that the makeup is the crucial factor that contributes to the stunning face, I have to say that this is not quite true. Clean and refreshed face is the most important if you want to achieve flawless look. Dry and flaky skin is very common problem during winter, which is why exfoliation is a key to success. The simplest homemade scrub made of olive oil and brown sugar will definitely do the trick. It will remove dead skin cells and allow your foundation to go on smoothly. Also, exfoliating your lips with a toothbrush will make them look fabulous, especially when you apply your favourite lipstick.
These five tips on how to achieve the perfect holiday look will definitely make your life easier. Not only that they are simple, but they are also very important if you want to look glamorous during holidays. Of course, everything starts with beautiful and moisturized skin. Enhancing it with a high-quality makeup is just a plus.
