Makeup enthusiasts are always on the lookout for creative ways of giving their face a refreshing lift. To make this holiday season extra special we have come up with quick and easy-to-achieve Christmas inspired makeup looks. Here are 5 such looks to usher in merry Christmas:
Candy Cane Inspiration
Candy cane is for your pout and eye lids too. To get a candy cane pout, firstly apply red lip liner and red lip color to your lips. With this as the base, create broad stripes on the red color using a white kohl pencil. For the eyes, use the white eye shadow on one half of the eye lid and a pink one for the other half. Use green eye liner and black mascara for the eye lids and a brown eye brow pencil to finish off. Finally, just dust your cheeks with a pink-tinged blush and your candy cane inspired look is ready to flaunt.
Red, Gold and Green
A simple way to achieve a Christmas inspired look is to use red lip color, gold shimmer powder on your cheeks and finally go green with your eye shadow. Choose bold or softer shades to match your style.
If you like your makeup to reflect the outdoors, then go for snowflake makeup this Christmas. Use blue eye shadows and white liners for the eyes and pair them up with white mascara for the eye lids. Complete the look with a nude lipstick and white lip liner or go bold with blue lip color.
Let your eyes speak for themselves. This is a three-tire smoky eye makeup with a light yellow or gold eye shadow for the base of the eye lid, followed by glittering green eye shadow and then finally a hint of purple or mauve eye shadow. Line the lower eyelid with the same purple or mauve liner and finish off with a black mascara. Keep your lips red and matte. Repeat the matte finish on your cheeks as well. Keep them nude without any blush. This way the green is accentuated.
Here is another smoky eye with a Christmas twist. Use gold and red eye shadows to create the smoky effect on the upper eyelid. Follow it up with and combination of yellow and aqua marine eye liner on the lower eyelid. For that special snowflake effect use diamond studded false lashes and apply black mascara to enhance the effect. Keep the rest of the makeup nude and dress up your lips in glossy pink or red lip color.
