How To Achieve the Perfect Festive Makeup Look

When doing your makeup for the festive season, it’s all about the bold lip and shimmer on the eyes. The transition from glowy summer makeup, to darker winter makeup can be daunting. But, putting yourself out there this Christmas is all you need to achieve the perfect look!

Whether you’re going for a more daring look with that berry lipstick and shimmery eyes, or the more subtle vibe with a nude and brown smokey eye; there is the perfect look for everyone no matter your preference. The following makeup tips will help you to get inspired this winter because tinsel can’t be the only thing to sparkle at Christmas!


When achieving the perfect makeup look, a pot of glitter will become your best friend! A dash of gold, silver, or even red will create a daring, yet subtle makeup look. Without being «too in your face», you’re creating a vibe that shows you know how to sparkle! Add a bit of brown in your crease or create a black smokey eye, depending on your glitter colour and preference, to finish off the perfect eye look.


Autumn/winter is all about a bold lip. Leave the pinks and nudes in summer, and enter the dark side! A deep berry or bold red is all you need this winter to make a statement. Whether you’re wearing dramatic eyeshadow or none at all, you can’t beat a red lip on a winter’s day. No matter the occasion, Christmas Day or that work-do you’ve been dreading, a bold lipstick will always help complete your outfit. Be daring this Christmas, and wear that bold lip with confidence!


It’s been proven that the star on the top of your tree isn’t the only thing allowed to glow! To create the perfect dewy makeup look, you need to make sure to prep your skin before you apply any makeup. A good moisturiser and hydrating primer will do the perfect job in ensuring that your makeup doesn’t look cakey or dry. By highlighting the highest points of your face where the sun normally hits; cheekbones, nose and cupids bow, you are guaranteed to create your desired healthy glow without looking like you’re wearing loads of makeup!
