Key Christmas beauty trends

November 25, 2013

Well Christmas is officially a month away now which means that for a lot of people party season is now starting to kick in. Now if you are an organized woman you have probably booked in for sessions of waxing, massages and hair appointments but what about things like your makeup etc as if you are anything like us then you will have already planned your outfit so now is the time to start thinking about your Christmas beauty looks.


Shimmery eyes
Who doesn’t love a bit of gltiz and glam during the festive period? Well if you fancy trying to put a bit of sparkle into your look is with your eyeshadow. The idea is to choose shadows with lots of sparkle and glitter and have a lot of fun with colours and sparkle but if you do go for this look make sure you keep the rest of your makeup look simple so not to look too like a Christmas tree.
Bold lips
So if bold eyes aren’t your thing you could try a deep wine colour or even mauve or plum colours. This season if you want to make a feature of your lips you need to opt for deep and dark tones which will add a vampish vibe to your look this Christmas. However, as this look is difficult to achieve as you need precision application – therefore, make sure you outline your lips first and then fill in with a lipstick and for true precision application use a lip brush to apply your colour rather than just applying it straight from the tube.
Gatsby glam
If there has been a trend that has been taken over this year it has to be 1920s chic. With the release of the fashion movie of the year – the Great Gatsby as well as the ever popular Downton Abbey the 20s are having a fashion moment. So if you are rocking a flapper dress this party season why not team it with some bang on trend deco makeup?
So how can you get a look worthy of Daisy Buchannan herself? Well you are looking for flawless skin with sexy smoky eyes, bold lips, flirty blush, curved eyebrows and lashings of mascara to finish off the look. Because it is such a dramatic look it is perfect for parties so get inspired by the 20s.
Have fun with your nails
So we’ve talked a lot about how you can achieve a fab party makeup look but one simple way of adding a flash of fun colour to your look is with a manicure. Christmas is the perfect time to add some sparkle to your look. So go to town with your nails especially if you like to pare down your makeup but still want a wow beauty look.
