Its finally December and the holiday season is upon us! While I love dressing up for the holidays in all the metallics and sequins, I also love experimenting with different looks on the beauty side, cos this is one time of year you can be bold, go all out and not look like a clown. Here are Three Holiday Beauty trends to try this season that I am loving. Whether you opt to try just one of these or two in a combo, you will be sure to make a glowy statement at your next holiday party!
1 ) Glowy cheeks
I’m all about the gold highlighter trend for this holidays! Its so “lit” (pun intented !) and adds the perfect amount of holiday shimmer to your makeup look. My absolute fave highlighter palette is the Smashbox Spotlight palette in gold which is a powder highlight. If you prefer a cream based highlight I highly recommend the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood beauty light wand – it is pure magic in a swipe!
2 ) Metallic lips
I was a little skeptical to try out this trend initially but now I am officially hooked and this has definitely got to be my favorite holiday beauty trend! Bold metallic lips were huge for the fall as well, but they are bigger and bolder for the holidays. Metallic shades of reds, plums and neutrals (like rose gold, muted gold, etc) are such a beautiful shiny statement to add to your holiday look. I am loving Smashbox’s legendary liquid lip (you can also get it in a lip set – makes such a great gift for the beauty buff!) as well as Smashbox’s Always On Metallic Matte Liquid Lipstick. These are so so pretty in person and have a long lasting smooth finish which is perfect for those long party nights. If you prefer a regular lipstick over a liquid lip, I suggest the metallic shades of Urban Decay’s Vice Lipstick. I have them in a couple of colors and they are super moisturizing and pigmented.
3 ) Glittery eyes
No holiday look is complete without dramatic eye makeup! Be extra this season and try out glittery eyeshadows or liners to give you that holiday sparkle. The best glitter eyeshadow that I have tried is Urban Decay’s Moonshadow! They are stunning and stay on all night long when worn over Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer. I have so many individual colors of these shadows and they are so fun to mix and match. They also come in an eye palette which has some of the most popular shades. If you want to add a glitter liner as well, try Urban Decay’s heavy metal glitter eyeliner.
Thanks for stopping by! xoxo
