Holiday Makeup Tricks
If you are planning to attend a holiday party, then you will probably want to look your best. Makeup is a great way to not only enhance your natural features, but to also give some insight as to your personality. Here are some holiday makeup tricks and tips that you may consider this holiday season.
Holiday Makeup Tips and Tricks
Consider Using Glittery Makeup
Glitter and sequin are two very common holiday trends. If you are attending a holiday party, you may want to incorporate glitter into your makeup. If you are looking for glittery makeup, there are many options available to you. Various shades of glittery eye shadow and lipstick or lip gloss are available from so many different lines of makeup. All that you need to do is look around to find the products that are right for you.
Don’t Be Afraid to Choose Bold Colors
If you are attending a holiday party, you shouldn’t be afraid to choose very bold colors. Some of your options include various shades of reds, browns and pinks. Although these may seem to be a bit too much during any time of the year, they are great choices for holiday parties, since many fall during the winter months - when bold colors are generally trendy. If there is snow on the ground, bold colors will be the perfect contrast to white.
Remember That It's Okay to Go Natural
Keep in mind that there is nothing wrong with going for a natural look when you apply your makeup for a holiday party or any event for that matter. If you feel more comfortable with a natural look, then it is a good idea to consider applying makeup to look as natural as possible. Although some people like to go bold, brilliant and outstanding, there are others who would much rather go natural.
Holiday Eye Makeup Tricks
The smoky eye look is very popular right now, particularly among celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Kate Hudson.
A smoky eye look is great for a night out on the town or a holiday party. All that you need to do is choose three shades (light, medium and dark) of the same color of eye shadow and blend them together, beginning with the lightest at the top (towards the eyebrow) and the darkest closest to the eyelashes. Gray and purple are great options and tend to match most outfit colors.
Avoid Matching Your Holiday Outfit Entirely
One of the biggest mistakes that many women make is matching their makeup entirely to their clothing. Although it is okay to match your makeup to certain elements of your clothing, you would not want to match your outfit entirely.
For example, a dark purple eye shadow can go nicely with a light purple dress. When you match all of your makeup, it is possible that you may go overboard and it will simply look tacky.
To most women, looking beautiful at a holiday party is important, whether it is with friends, family members or co-workers. If you want to enhance your overall appearance, the right holiday makeup tricks and tips can really do the job.
