Get Festive Holiday Makeup Looks with Just a Few Essentials

Tuesday, December 09, 2014 | COLUMNS: Makeup, Party Time

‘Tis the season for glam! With plenty of parties and celebrations to attend this winter, chances are party-perfect holiday makeup looks that don’t require hours of work is high on your gift list this year. Luckily, we’re the experts on getting holiday festive with just a few essentials so you can spend more time celebrating and less time getting ready.

Going from the office right to a party or event? One super easy way to change your look from day to night is to go red — a red lip color, that is. It’s one of the most classic holiday makeup looks that never seems to go out of style and always matches your holiday outfit. Lipstick, gloss or tint is a quick and simple way to completely change your look and make sure you stand out in a crowd. Plus, as an added bonus, as a bright red or cranberry color fades through the night, it softens into a beautiful light matte color.

Another great way to add extra drama to your look is to use your everyday eye shadow palette but build up the amount of color you use. You can also try using some of the deeper, richer colors that the palette offers for the crease of your eye, to really emphasize a dramatic look. Don’t underestimate the power of a neutral, high-shine gloss on your lips, especially when paired with a dramatic eye – it makes for an overall polished and dramatic look.

No dramatic look is complete without some volume on your eyelashes. Use volume mascara for a full and flirty look that can pair with a dramatic eye or stand on its own for a more subtle look. Use a waterproof formula if you’re looking for mascara that won’t budge during a night of celebration.

If you’re looking for less drama but still fun makeup ideas for your eyes, highlight the inner corners with a metallic shade. Use a champagne or soft pink color if you have fair skin, gold if you have medium or olive skin and if you’re dark, use a bronze color. Pair it with a fun, bright lip color and emphasized lashes for an overall simple but festive look.

For a soft finish to any makeup look, don’t forget to use an illuminating powder. This gives you a fun, luminous glow and really perks up your complexion. Even if the weather outside is frightful and your summer tan has faded, you can still find a use for your bronzer! Break it out for some highlighting and contouring.

Do you have a go-to party look, or tried and trick day to night tricks you use? We want to hear them! Share below.

Halloween Party Tips

Planning a spooky soiree? These time-saving, budget-friendly tips can help you get more fright for your buck—even if you’ve waited until the last minute!

  1. Make a guest-list and use it as a guide for the space you will need to accommodate.
  2. Email invitations and/or create a Facebook event page as soon as possible. Make sure to include the theme (if you have one) and specify whether or not guests should wear costumes.
  3. Popular theme ideas include: Rocky Horror Picture Show, Murder Mystery, Historical Figures, Masquerade Ball, The 50s, Dead Rock Star Party.
  4. Set up a buffet of Halloween-themed snacks and beverages. “Finger cookies” and gummy worms in chocolate “dirt” are always popular dishes.
  5. Decorate with anything from crepe paper streamers and balloons to creepy (and cost-effective) spider webs. For a gory bathroom, replace your shower curtain with a clear vinyl liner. Put slash marks in it and cover the tub and curtain in fake blood.
  6. Find some smoky jazz music to play throughout your home that has a dark, gritty feel to it. The soundtrack to, “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me” is a good example.
