The Holiday season is in full effect which means special events and parties are popping up all over the place! Instead of looking for something last minute or doing the same ole makeup look you do every year (or even every day), why don’t you spice it up this time around? Here are 5 gorgeous, seasonal makeup looks you might want to try!
The overall vibe and feel of winter time is characterized by gorgeous frosty whites and icy blues both in nature and in makeup. “Winter Wonderland” is what happens when the chill of winter meets seasonal glam; It’s an electric, Cobalt blue smokey eye, highlighted with silver and white specks and streaks of glitter.
It’s an ideal look for a grown and sexy night out, special event, or holiday party!

Every holiday season, people rush to steal innocent kisses under the mistletoe, and the curly green plant tied together in pretty red ribbon can really lead to some out of the box Christmas magic–and the makeup look is no different! Many of us don’t wear glittery, green eyeshadow as part of our everyday look, but it’s absolutely stunning when paired with a deep, red lippie on a special occasion.
“The Ball Drop”
The New Year is all about reaching new heights in your life, but New Year’s Eve is all about the celebrating! One of the most iconic and beloved party traditions is the ball drop in New York City. This bright, gorgeous ball of light drops down just in time for midnight and it’s perfect inspiration for a makeup look when you’re ready to show up and show out!
A chocolate brown into gold eyeshadow gradient is paired with a fitting rose colored, champagne highlight lip. To really tie the look together, throw on a pair of long, luscious false eyelashes.
Recommended: BECCA Glow Lip Gloss (Champagne Creme), $22; ColourPop Fortune Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Palette, $22.
The Mrs. Claus makeup look is a cute and classy spin on our favorite holiday go-to: the red lips; it’s paired with a brown shadow and gold streak, fierce cat eye, and shimmerless highlight. The great thing about this look is that it could be easily simplified or glammed up!
To simplify, leave out the eyeshadow and/or do a simple line of liner instead of the cat eye. If you want to turn it up a notch, false eyelashes, glitter gloss on top of the red lip, or adding a warm blush should do the trick.
“New Year, New Me”
As you probably already know, “new year, new me” is a phrase we say when we want to change so radically, that it’s almost like we’re a whole new person. Symbolically turning yourself into a blank canvas is actually a great idea, so why not carry out the same idea through a fresh-faced makeup look?
Sheer, dewy foundation, natural brows, and clear gloss is a great way to play up your natural beauty and get away with a really convincing “no-makeup” makeup look!
