Makeup looks for holiday get to be a bit glitzier and bit more avant-garde than our regular everyday makeup and that’s of those very special reasons for which I love winter holidays! But hey, let’s not forget the fact that we can even bend the rules a bit when creating a perfect festive makeup look. Bold eyes, bold lips, glittery dust and the best thing about it is that, if you do it right, you don’t even have to pick just one! Seriously, how cool is that? Now, I know that makeup usually comes last and that we often don’t even think about it until it’s time to plaster it on, dress up and rush out, which is why I’m sure this handy list of video tutorials will come handy at this particular moment! Check them out now because this is the perfect time to pick amazing makeup for Christmas as well as a New Year’s Eve party look that won’t go unnoticed!
1. Maroon Lips and Smoky Eyes
Yes, yes and yes! Holiday season is one of those rare occasions in which you do get to make everything pop! Big, sexy eyes – checked! Lush, bold lips –checked! Trendy colors – checked! Don’t know about you but this definitely needs to go on my list of best makeup looks for holiday to experiment with before the big day! Take a peek, I’m sure you’re going to love it! And that handy eye widening trick is absolutely fantastic!
2. Classic Glam
Not sure about the dark on dark combo? No problem – classic glam is a fool proof festive makeup look you can go for and look fab even if you don’t have a lot of time for experimenting. Set the bar even higher this year with this amazing classically beautiful yet just a tad bit different idea and let the year end with nothing less than tons of compliments! Yes, velvety, low-lighted lips, seriously runway-worthy eyeliner and flawless satiny skin really do spell perfection.

Say yes to festive glitz and be the bell of the ball this Christmas or New Year’s Eve! Seriously, ladies, how can we even discuss holiday makeup without mentioning glitter as well as gold, silver and all shades of green? And here’s a makeup look for holidays you won’t be able to resist! Glamorous, sparkly gold mixed with some reddish smoky effect, neatly lined cat-eye and nude sure looks like a holiday no-brainer, doesn’t it?

Have you been a naughty girl this year or a poster girl for nice? Well, one thing is for sure- if you choose this look to end the year with, I can definitely see you’ve done your fashion-related homework! Popular color plus all the glitz plus an ultra sexy, smoky effect equals a perfect party look and, I don’t know exactly why, but to me, it looks like a perfect match for a trendy, velvet outfit!

Take a look and see for yourself.
Ah, so many festive make up looks to choose from! Thank God for both Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties!
