Full Glam Makeup Ideas for the Holidays

Full Glam Makeup Ideas for the Holidays

There’s something about the holidays that just begs for a bit of glitz and glam! As we’re all easing back into in-person events this year, full glam makeup is back in the game. The tree isn’t the only thing getting all dressed up this year!  

Full Glam Makeup

This holiday season is all about the jewel tones and glitter. What better feature to showcase some showstopping colors than your eyes? With cocktail parties, ugly Christmas sweater get-togethers, and Secret Santas on the horizon, ‘tis the season to go full glam! 

Time to dive into all those eyeshadow palettes you’ve been stockpiling— bold and beautiful looks are in. Make your eyes pop with a daring sweep of my SILKY SMOOTH SHADOW in the shade PINCHED PENNY. A gorgeous berry-pink, this shade glides on like silk for an incredible and long-lasting, festive color. Include a dash of BRONZE LIGHTS in your inner corner and over your brow bone to add some depth. 

To really elevate your eye look, go for that heavy liner! There’s nothing quite as glamorous as the classic wing. With my SUPER LONGWEAR GEL EYELINER, you’ll easily be able to sculpt out the perfect cat eye. Use a smaller angled brush to create the more understated, yet still sophisticated, kitten liner look that has been taking catwalks by storm. 

Don’t Forget the Falsies!

One of the best staples for easy Christmas makeup looks is a good pair of false eyelashes. Falsies aren’t just for pop and fashion icons. I learned so much about eyelash application from resident Christmas queen, Mariah Carey herself! If lashes are new for you, and you’re feeling a little clumsy, schedule a ONE-ON-ONE VIRTUAL CLASS with me. I find it takes a good hour of practice to learn all the ins and outs of proper lash application.  

Easy Christmas Makeup Looks

One of the simplest ways to create a Christmas makeup look is to focus on the lips. This season is all about RED. Wine red, brick red, berry red, orange red— no matter the shade, we’re red-y to look glamorous! 

A trusty red lip has been a staple of every beauty guru’s makeup bag for centuries. No matter which shade of red suits you best, you’ll find plenty to choose from in my limited edition LIMITED LIPSTICK SET. Any one of the six shades currently available are sure to wow this holiday season. From something dark and luxurious like First Crush to the lighter, more flirty pinky-plum of Sangrita, you’re sure to find a shade to fit your look! 

To really make that color pop, make sure you’re moisturizing your lips. Skin isn’t the only thing getting dry this winter! When your entire complexion is properly nourished, you’ll have the best foundation for any full glam makeup look.

Step out in style for this season of winter festivities! These easy Christmas makeup looks are sure to put you on the nice list. Happy holidays!
