The Best Holiday Beauty Looks on Pinterest

It’s the holiday season which means the next few weeks will be full of pictures and parties for all of us ladies. We would never turn down a good holiday event, but before we head out, we need some good holiday beauty inspiration. Our go-to? Pinterest! So we’ve gathered our favorite holiday looks, ranging from winter-themed nails to NYE makeup and more! 


Take it up a notch with your nails this holiday season with some fun and easy nail art!

This stylish and sophisticated Christmas tartan pattern plays into this season’s most sought-after print. It’s both classic and cute!

These simple-yet-festive Hanukkah-inspired nails are chic enough to wear throughout the holiday season!

If nude is your go-to nail color, try this nail art pattern—the snowflakes are subtle, but will still have everybody ooh-ing and ahh-ing.


Stand out at holiday parties with these beautiful and unique hairstyles for all hair lengths!

This pretty updo is a far cry from your typical, stuffy prom-like hairstyle—the twist in the back is elegant, but the loose strands in front make it a little more relaxed and fun.

half crown braid is a style you can do with tons of different hair lengths—plus, it’s easy to customize! Wear it with curls for a more formal affair, or with your natural texture for casual events.

New Year’s Eve calls for a ton of glitz and glam, so dress your hair up with some DIY headwear to really bring your look up a notch!

And if you’re just spending the day hanging out with the fam? We’re partial to this wintery bun.


Learn how to highlight your best facial features and get prepared for all of your family pictures!

Add just a touch of holiday shimmer to your lids—paired with a sleek eyeliner, it’s super sophisticated.

Do your smoky eye with a seasonal color, like this cranberry shadow.

Perfect for your most elegant events, dark lips create an air of mystery—we love how sultry this shade is!

Glitter can be hard to pull off during the rest of the year, so take New Year’s Eve as an opportunity to go all-out! We love how the pale glitter looks with long lashes and a sharp cat-eye liner.
