Its the most wonderful time of the year! You can feel the magic in the air. It’s all about the parties and presents, and most importantly spending time with the fam. And there’s no better way to celebrate than with festive makeup. I’ve put together some of the best festive makeup looks on Instagram that will inspire you this Christmas.
1. Glam the whole way
If you want the whole glamorous package with picture-perfect makeup, there’s no better place to look than at Mario Dedivanovic for inspiration. Personal makeup artist to Kim Kardashian, he’s a trendsetter and a massive perfectionist. I love his makeup and his techniques. And this look is no different. It’s festive and beautiful and really a perfect holiday look!
2. Rock a bold lip
You can’t go wrong with a classic burgundy bold lip. It’s festive, classy and oh so pretty! Keep the rest of your makeup understated to get the full effect. You don’t want any dramatic eyes taking away from the lips. It’s all about a flawless basic face, and then wow bold lips! This makeup look is easy to achieve and very dramatic.
3. Feeling frosty?
The festive makeup look screams a winter wonderland! With the snowflake and the blue and pink colours, it is frosty and fun! Perfect for a party, you’ll be the star of the night!
4. Snowflake Eyes
I love how the eyes and lips are the same warm dark pinkish colour. This snowflake makeup look is beautiful. It’s got the perfect balance of mixing warm and colds to create the ultimate festive look. The wig certainly completes the final look!
5. Glitter Lips
Another understated face, but oh my, can you check out those shimmering, glittering lips. Watch the video and I guarantee you’ll want to try it out for yourself. These lips depict everything that this season is. Glittery and shimmery with a beautiful red colour! To finish off the look, copy the stars around the eyes and be bedazzled.
6. Ice Queen Christmas Look
What’s a festive makeup look without including a Frozen makeover. I don’t know if this is supposed to be a Frozen makeover but its called Ice Queen. And, there’s no bigger Ice Queen right now than Ice Queen from Frozen! Frozen 2 the movie has just been released, and on top of that ColourPop released a whole load of Frozen makeup. So it’s very Christmas appropriate. This Ice Queen look is striking and stunning. All the colours tone in really well to create a masterpiece! I love how the eyes have a shimmery look and the lips are all matte. It’s just the right balance.
7. Sunset eyes
Sunset is the most beautiful time of the day. With all the colours blending together it is totally mesmerising. What better way to celebrate the holidays than wearing beautiful sunset colours on your eyes, no one will be able to take their eye off. If you want heads turning, this look is for you!
8. Blue Sparkle
I wasn’t really sure what to name this look, but as you can see the name is irrelevant because the makeup speaks for itself. It’s totally luxe and fitting for the party season! The shades of blue are stunning, and the gems complete the look superbly and they match the highlighter to a T.
9. Blue Gems
Since we’re on the topic of blue gems, I couldn’t resist including this one. It’s a slightly different take on gems. In fact, there is no eyeshadow used at all here, the gems take the whole show. Not as classy as the previous look, but definitely more fun and just as party spirited. The key to this festive makeup look is to keep the rest of your face as natural as possible to give the gems as much space to shine as possible!
10. Frozen themed eyes
Another Frozen makeover. I think it’s safe to say that Frozen is going to be a popular makeup theme this Christmas. The movie and the palettes are loved by all, not to mention how festive it all is. This makeup look is another winner, from the colours to how she used the diamond glow powder. It’s all falling in the same direction which is so effective!
11. Flawless makeup look
So this isn’t technically a festive makeup look but seriously, how gorgeous does she look?! For many of us doing a whole festive and glittery look isn’t our thingamajig. Some of us want simple flawless makeup for our Christmas and New Year’s party and that’s fine. We’ve got you covered. This is one of those looks that you can’t go wrong with. It’s gorgeous all year round.
12. Christmas look
What can be more Christmasy than classic red and white colours? With this festive look, you achieve it all. It even has the sparkle on the inner eye to complete the celebratory theme to it.
13. Eyes in the clouds
This makeup look is called Head in the Clouds but I think it fits eyes in the clouds more. What’s your take on it? Either way, it’s a beautiful look with gorgeous pinks and purples. I love how she created clouds on her eyelids!
14. Another Frozen look
Another Frozen look, don’t say I didn’t warn you;) It is a dominant theme in this years Christmas makeup. Each of the Frozen looks I’ve shown you are all very different which shows how versatile the Frozen palettes by ColourPop are. This is a very bold and bright look and it has all the glitter and shimmer that you would expect for the holiday season.
Which of these Festive Makeup Looks tempt you the most? I’m always more of a neutral flawless kinda gal. However, for our family Christmas party, I do like to go all out. Choosing one look is a very hard choice because all the makeup looks are stunning. However, if I had to choose one it would probably be the Snowflake Eyes, although, I am obsessed with the glittery lips too. I told you, it’s a hard one!
I hope you have enjoyed these Festive Makeup Looks That Will Inspire You This Christmas and I hope you did indeed get inspired! Let me know in the comments below:))
