Classic Glam

You can never go wrong with the classic (red hot) holiday look. Tick off all the bombshell boxes by flaunting well-defined eyebrows, lightly-shadowed lids, black sharp winged liner, fluttery lashes, flush cheeks, and most importantly, bold red lips. The key is putting a lot of emphasis on defining your brows, building up your lashes, and lining your lips before filling them in.

Try: DIOR Rouge Velvet – Crimson Red; GUERLAIN Fall Feutre Noir Ultra Black Liner

Shimmer Euphoria

Gussy up your minimal makeup by adding shimmer to your eyes. And then, glam it up a bit with little crystals glued along your creases to complete your soft Euphoria look. Add some clear gloss for glassy lips and contour your cheeks and temples with some shimmery blush (yeah, you heard me), and you’re good to go.

Colour Pop

In case you’re feeling extra adventurous this season, opt for a vibrant colour pop! Lilac, canary yellow, or mint — prime your lids and pick the colour you are ‘vibing’ with. A cream-based pigmented shadow for lids along with a neutral brown halo and pink blush are enough crank it up a notch.

Cosmic Glitter

Your dramatic eyes will have people seeing stars (literally) and have you obsessed in no time! This high-impact, spacey glitter look brighten up your lids by reflecting all the light around you. Line your eyes with exaggerated flicked out wings. Mix two or more glittery shadows (pick anything from flirty pink sparkles, champagne to ice-y silver and everything in between!). Blend well until you get the desired level of glam, and top off your look with wispy falsies and berry lips.

Subtle Smoky

You’re in the wrong if your idea of smoky eyes involves heavily-shadowed lids and smudged under-eye circles. In fact, for your holiday soirees this time, ditch dark or gray shadow. Instead, go for a more subtle smoky look by brightening up a nude base with an eye-catching pop of iridescent shadow of choice (our favourites are emerald, gold, and bronze). You can play around with reversed winged eyeliner and an understated nude lip to bring it all together.
