It is finally that time of the year! Christmas trees, candies, lavish dinners and everything in between. The best part, of course, is decking the halls and ourselves in the colors of the season; red, green, and white. The Pantone Color Institute named Viva Magenta as its official color of the year 2023. So if you want to be on trend and yet blend in right for the season, here's how to add that extra edge. It doesn't matter if you prefer subtle makeup or want to go all-out with glitter and jewels, the possibilities for Christmas makeup looks are endless. We have handpicked some fab makeup inspiration, to elevate your party look for all its fun and frivolous glory.
1. Smokey Red Eye Makeup
Smokey eyes are ever the crowd-pleaser and a popular go-to option for any party. But adding a red twist for your Christmas theme party is sure to make you stand out. Here is a great example. Use a muted red or magenta eyeshadow on your eyelids and under your eyes. Make sure to get in a sleek line of kohl on your upper and lower waterline. Give a smokey touch with a subtle black eyeshadow, around the eyes. Finish it off with mascara on the eyelashes. With this eye-catching (no pun intended) look, let your eyes do all the talking, so pick a nude or muted tone for your lips and cheeks.
Red eyeshadow blending with golden sparkle makes for jaw-dropping Christmas eye makeup. You can go for the Viva Magenta or pick the a dark red shade from your palette for the base. And complement it with a bold golden glow. Ditch the kohl or eyeliner for this look. Captivating, isn't it?
2. Bold Red Lips
A bold red lip can uplift any outfit. With muted tones of eyeshadow and blush, make your lips the highlight of your makeup. However, make sure it is done to perfection. First, use a concealer to do away with all the pigmentation or you can also use loose powder for the base. Next use a lip liner - preferably a red hue, neatly outline your lips. And, fill it up with a red matte lip finsh. You can also add a touch of glam gloss for that extra shine.
3. Cheeky Red Highlights
No, we aren't suggesting you simply dab your cheeks with a bright red blush. Instead, add a bit of drama to your look with a primer, foundation, concealer, and loose powder to prep your skin. Then use a thin brush to draw tiny heart patterns (or any other shape that suits your fancy) on your cheeks and nose. Keep them subtle. You can go with the chosen colour of 2023 or choose any hue from a blush, or eyeshadow palette that works for your skin tone. Push your makeup artist skills to the next level with subtle white patterns or just some dots to add a touch of snowy magic to your overall appearance. Use a makeup fixing spray to seal the look.
