The holidays are always fun to look forward to because they bring together friends and family. However, one of the best perks of the season is that you can refresh your beauty routine. To help you with that, we’ve gathered 5 of the hottest holiday makeup trends that will be huge this year. You don’t want to miss out on any of these amazing ideas.
1) Glittery Lids
A great way to show off your glam this season is with glittery lids. This trend adds a touch of sparkle and pizzazz to any look and can instantly turn an ordinary makeup look into something eye-catching and unique.
To get this look, use a reliable eyeshadow base like our Eyelights primers. Choose one in a color that works with your skin tone and complements the rest of your makeup. Then, use a glitter pigment like Bronze Glitz in a coordinating shade to add more sparkle.
2) Statement Lips
A bold, bright lip is a must-have for the holidays, and there are so many fun shades to choose from! Deep reds are always a classic choice but don’t be afraid to experiment with different colors like purples, pinks, and even metallic shades. For a subtle statement, try a matte finish in a soft mauve shade. For an edgier look, opt for glossy liquid lipstick in a bolder hue. Make sure to finish off your look with a lip liner that matches your chosen color, and you’ll be sure to turn heads.
3) Bold Brows
Bold brows are one of the hottest makeup trends this holiday season. Whether you want to go for a more natural, fluffy brow look or you want to really make a statement, your brows should not go neglected. You can create bold brows with an array of products, including brow gels, pomades, and eyebrow pencils.
The trick is to choose a product that gives you the perfect color, texture, and definition. Choose a shade that matches your hair color, then use a spoolie brush to shape your brows and fill them in. If you’re going for a more intense look, try using a darker shade than your natural hair color to create a dramatic effect. For a more natural look, use a lighter shade that matches your hair color and apply with short, feathery strokes.
Once you’ve filled in your brows, it’s important to set them with a trusty brow gel. This will help keep your brows in place all day and prevent them from smudging or fading.
4) Smokey Eyes
Smokey eyes are a great way to add drama to your holiday look. To get the perfect smokey eye, pick out eyeshadows with different shades in a range from light to dark. Start by applying a light shade all over your lid, then use a darker shade to add depth and dimension to your eyes. To finish, use a darker shade to line your lower lash line and blend it up for a soft, smoky effect. For a more intense look, opt for blacks over browns and grays, and try adding black eyeliner along the lash line.
Finish it off by using a lighter color to highlight the inner corner and brow bone. Throw on some ultra-black mascara or your favorite pair of falsies, and you’re ready to go!
5) Shimmery Cheeks
When it comes to holiday makeup trends, shimmery cheeks are definitely one to watch out for this year. From glossy finishes to glittery accents, adding a bit of sparkle to your cheeks can take your look to the next level.
For a subtle yet eye-catching look, opt for a highlighter that gives off a golden or champagne shimmer. When applying, focus on the high points of your face, like your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose, for maximum impact. If you want something more noticeable, try a sparkly blush in a light pink or peach shade for a soft and girly effect. Some of our favorite products for this include: our Dew Drops liquid highlighter, and Glisten Up Creme Illuminator.
No matter which route you take, shimmery cheeks are a great way to add some festive glam to your look this holiday season. So go ahead and get creative with those glitters and shimmers!
