The holiday season is coming, and with it dozens of celebrations. This season is all about glitter, green, and red, but this time we got inspiration from some other elements to give you some Christmas makeup and hairstyle ideas, so all you’ll want for Christmas are these gorgeous holiday looks. From smokey eyes to shimmery shadows, along with casual up-do’s to luscious waves, get inspired this upcoming holiday season.


In the hope of a sneaky Christmas kiss, with this mistletoe-inspired look, you are sure to draw everyone's attention to your sultry emerald eyes. Paired along with a classic cherry red lip and sexy slicked back hair, it's the perfect glam look for a merry night out.

Hot cocoa

This cozy, warm-toned makeup look is ideal for a laid-back day filled with hot chocolate and loved ones. Loose waves combined with a bronzy contour ensure a quick yet stylish look.

Santa baby

The gift-giving season is approaching, and what better way to experience the Christmas shopping rush than with a pretty-in-pink look. Pink glossed lips with a matching set of glitter pink eyeshadow is a dream come true, perfectly matched with pin-straight hair.


The Christmas spirit would not be the same without peppermint bliss candy canes. The sweet, red and white, candy-inspired look includes a subtle white eyeliner on the lower lid contrasting the red upper lid and tinted red lips, finishing it off with a low, messy pony.


Nothing says “Christmas” like snow. This look is all about metallic eyeshadow, silver highlighter, sparkly pink gloss, and a sleek high ponytail. You'll be the spitting image of a frosted snowflake.


Nothing beats the warmth of a fireplace, chasing away the chill of winter. The orange flamed eyes with an inner corner glitter surprise, messy half top bun, and some matte brown lips are the perfect combination for waiting for Santa to come down the chimney.

Jingle bells

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way, oh what fun it is to wear a festive look tonight, hey! Piercing golden shadows, wavy textured hair, red metallic lips, laughing all the way, making spirits bright, oh what fun it is to a wear a festive look tonight, hey!


The excitement of Christmas decorations is near. Pinecones have a magical spark, and this pinecone-inspired makeup and hairstyle do too. A messy low bun is everything you need for the holiday season: easy and fast, yet keeps it all intact to have fun. As for the makeup, it's a series of matte and nude-toned products to keep it simple and classy.


Rudolf the red lip reindeer! Take some inspiration from the beloved reindeer, but instead of a red nose, how about a red lip? A classic, bold red lip is always a good idea, and when paired with a gold lid and fierce cat eye, plus two messy low buns, nothing says “Christmas cheer” quite like this look.

Vintage Dreams

If you’re more of a vintage gal, this 1950s inspired hairstyle is perfect for you. Some tight Marilyn Monroe locks, paired along with a dark, silver smokey eye will prepare you for a wonderfully romantic holiday evening. Add some clear gloss to your lips for a finishing touch.

Snow Angel

A little bit of blush goes a long way. Pin two strands of your hair back in a messy half up/half down do and put a pink tint on your lips to make it seem as if you just came back from making snow angels. An iridescent highlighter will give you that glowy and beautiful look.


This is the perfect type of makeup for a more natural look. All you need is a dusting of blush along your nose and cheeks with some freckles. There’s nothing cuter than being rosy and speckled during the wintertime and adding two loose braids.
