Here are 21 Christmas makeup ideas, from the best beauty YouTubers and Instagrammers, to ensure you look elite on the big day.
1. Go for a festive red lip
A red lip is always a good idea, but it’s an even better idea at Christmas. It’s the perfect way to add some festive cheer to your look, without going over the top. We love this matte red lipstick from MAC Cosmetics.
2. Get glowy with highlighter
One of the best things about Christmas is all the twinkly lights. So why not reflect that in your makeup? A little bit of highlighter will give you a gorgeous glow, like this one from Becca Cosmetics. Just dust it along your cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose.
3. Create a smoky eye
A smoky eye is always a good idea, but it’s an even better idea at Christmas. It’s the perfect way to add some festive cheer to your look, without going over the top. We love this tutorial from Pixiwoo on how to create a smoky eye using just two eyeshadows. Trust us, it’s easy peasy!
4. Go for glittery eyeshadow
Glittery eyeshadow is another great way to add some festive sparkle to your look. We recommend using an eyeshadow primer first, like this one from Urban Decay, to help keep the glitter in place all day long. Then just go crazy with whichever glittery shade takes your fancy! We love this rose gold shade from MAC Cosmetics.
