It’s that time of year again with the fairy lights out, Christmas music playing, prosecco on tap…and we’re feeling in the party spirit. But when it comes to deciding on a look for some of the festive outings we’ve got coming up, it’s always great to get some new style inspiration. As well as all the latest hair trends, it’s important to think about your complete look, and this includes your Christmas party makeup. Here are some ideas which are going to be popular throughout December, the New Year and beyond.
It’s All about the Bronze
We’re used to applying bronzer, but these beautiful tones can be used across the face, including the eyelids, and temples of the forehead. This creates a healthy glow up top, as well as highlighting gorgeous cheekbones. We’ve even seen natural bronze swept across lips to enhance the overall glow. With amber, gold and deep rose makeup hitting the shelves, who said a warm glow was just for the Summer?
We’re loving the recent wave of people asking for silver hair colours with these cooler tones and coconut hues kicking up a storm across social media. Now we’re seeing their trend make its way into makeup styles, with gold and silver accents looking gorgeous around liner-rimmed eyes. With boyish eyebrows remaining popular, define the look with a splash of gold leaf on the outer corners or silver eyeshadow placed in the inner corners of the eye.
Smoky liner and eye makeup are emerging again now the party invites are in full flow, providing the perfect blend between definition and smoulder. Combine deep grey or charcoal tones on the eyelids, continually blending out your liner using a fluffy makeup brush until you’re happy with the look. Finish with a dramatic mascara for a hypnotising look which will leave you ready to hit the dancefloor.
Longer, Tinted Lashes
Not only are bold coloured lashes hot this season, but the longer, the better! Light up your eyes and brows this season with eyebrow and lash tinting. Your beauty stylist can help you tailor the results to your hair colour and skin tone, making your natural lashes appear fuller and longer while creating shape and definition to brows. It’s the ideal way to enhance your existing lashes without the need for extensions.
With vibrant reds everywhere during the festive season, why not get into the spirit and make a bold lip statement? This works great if going for a paler look across the rest of the face, using bright or deep red shades with matte or satin textures to guarantee a kiss under the mistletoe.
Glitter & Glow
Glitter has been (literally) all over the catwalk this year, and now we’re seeing the trend emerge into our favourite party makeup – just in time for Christmas! This includes beautiful shimmery powders, metallic or purple eyeshadows and even full-on glitter which makes its way into your hairline for the ultimate party look.
