Red and green aren’t the only colors necessary for a Christmas makeup look. There’s white, silver, gold, even a nude tone color. You can do one eye with one color and the other one a different color; similar to Maddie Ziegler’s (Dance Moms) wig on Sia’s holiday album. There are extremely creative people that can also draw detailed pictures on their eyelids, such as a Christmas tree, holiday lights, or even a penguin.

Christmas makeup looks either need that idealistic cherry red lip or a burgundy-colored lipstick. The classic red lip is a dramatic accessory to your face and pops so bright! Some people like to create patterned lips (ex. candy cane).

A thick black line across the eyelid line will stand out with your eyeshadow masterpiece. There are several types of ways to create your fine line: thick, thin, black, blue, glitter, the list is endless. There are also many ways to style your eyeliner wings, such as a cat eye, or going for a more dramatic Cleopatra style wing.

There are too many tutorials on nail designs, which is so cool to have at your fingertips! You can paint a simple design, such as red on eight fingers and a white accent nail, or all ten fingers white with ornaments on them. But if you want to start drawing out the Grinch or Buddy the Elf, well applause to you--you’re super artsy!

Glitter

You can never have too much glitter, let’s get that straight! I mean, who wouldn’t want to have sparkly snow on their face (or all over their body)? Glitter screams party and celebration, so by wearing tons of glitter (or a small amount), you’ll definitely outshine everyone.

Your body is your canvas. These tips will help you find your inner makeup artist. Decorate and dress however you would like and don’t forget that extra sparkle!
