3 Christmas makeup ideas
1. All things Christmassy
Don’t skip your base makeup. Once done, use a pink blush to add a flush of colour to your Christmas makeup look. Then, start focusing on your eyes. Start your Christmas eye makeup by sweeping the vibrant green eyeshadow across your lids. Follow this step by using a matte eyeliner to achieve show-stopping Christmas party makeup. We recommend using white eyeliner for the perfect finish. If you don’t have a white eyeliner, you can also use your white eyeshadow as eyeliner to get you in that Christmas mood. Finish your Christmas eye makeup by using a volumizing mascara. Then, complete this Christmas makeup look by applying classic red lipstick. Finally, rock the Christmas eve makeup by setting it with setting spray. This will keep your Christmas makeup look on point all day while preventing smudging or fading, without having to re-touch.
2. All things shimmer
A shiny Christmas makeup look should definitely be on your list this season. And don’t fear, even if you’re a makeup newbie, this Christmas makeup idea is super easy. To achieve the Christmas makeup look of your dreams, we suggest doing your Christmas eye makeup first. This will help to efficiently clean any glittery fallout on your face without having to redo your base makeup. Start your Christmas eve makeup by shaping your eyebrows well. Next, apply shimmery, glittery eyeshadow all over your eyelids. Finish off this easy yet creative Christmas eye makeup by creating the winged eyeliner look. For the face makeup, apply some blush on the apples of your cheeks and use the highlighter on the high points of your face such as the cheekbones, bridge of your nose, and cupid’s bow. Lastly, use a shiny lip gloss to complete your Christmas party makeup. So, what are you waiting for? Pair the makeup with your favourite sequenced outfit and bring the twinkling Christmas lights home.
3. All things natural
If you’re a fan of the no-makeup makeup look, this Christmas makeup idea is for you. Begin your Christmas makeup look by using a smoothing primer to add a healthy glow to your complexion. We recommend skipping the foundation and going in directly with the concealer for a seamless, natural finish. Not sure which concealer shade will suit you? Use the L’Oréal Paris Virtual-Try-On tool to find your perfect match and look the best from the rest. See to it that you blend it well. Further, use the smallest amount of nude blush to add a hint of colour to your Christmas eve makeup. Go for the minimalistic Christmas eye makeup and keep your eyes as simple as possible. Sweep the nude eyeshadow shade across your lids and use the smudge-proof kajal to define your eyes. Finish this Christmas makeup look by colouring your pout with nude or light pink lipstick.
