Hottest make-up looks for Christmas

The festive season is almost upon us and we can almost smell the fruity scent of mulled wine and cinnamon. It's the perfect time of year to get a little bit more creative and festive with your make-up looks! Take a look at the hottest make-up trends for this season and how to make your make-up effortlessly fabulous.

Glossy Lips

The glossy lips can really uplift your face! We suggest minimal/soft eye make-up for a subtle look or a bold smokey eye for impact.

“From glowing complexions to shiny hair, glossy lips complete this trend that results in a healthy, radiant and hydrated look,” Newby Hands, beauty director at Net-a-Porter, tells BoF.

You're Making Me Blush

Rosy cheeks are here to make a statement! Sweep the brush on your cheeks, temples, and underneath your brow bones to give yourself a pretty allover flush. This will make your facial features pop and add definition to your face.

Matte Red Lips

If you love being the life of the holiday party, go all-out with a red matte lip! This will make your little black dress pop. It may not seem like a versatile look, but it definitely is! Opt for soft eyes for the red lips to stand out, or dark smokey make-up to compliment the tones.

Copper Gold Party

If normal holiday colours, like red or green, aren’t your thing, try copper, gold and bronze shades instead. Here's the good news: Metallic copper is the new black when it comes to smokey eyes! This season, it's all about the eyes, but with a cool modern twist. Opt for statement lashes and winged eyeliner to make your eye colour pop!

Add a little sparkle

It wouldn't be Christmas without a little bit sparkle and glitter! Whether it is a statement eye look, buildable highlighter, glossy lips or all of the above, a shimmer is never too much during the festive season. Opt for fluffy brows and minimal accessories/jewellery for an on-trend look!

Highlight your way

Highlighter is here to bring your features to life! This product is buildable and can be as subtle or bold as you like it. Highlighter works for all looks, but wearing with matte eyeshadow can really create an impact. Apply on the cheek bone and under the eyebrow to give a structured illusion.
