Forget about ugly Christmas sweaters and get ready to embrace the Christmas spirit with these quirky and glam makeup looks.
Christmas is just around the corner, and if you’re one of those people who live and breathe Christmas, you’re probably seeing all the ways you can embody the holiday spirit. Today, there are tons of ways you can turn your life into a real winter wonderland with so many amazing decorations and ornaments, really cool technology to make you feel inside Santa’s own house in the North Pole, and of course, tons of great fashion ideas to look like Santa’s dashing little helpers.
If you’ve already thought about all these ideas, but you feel like you can still do more to celebrate the holiday season and your whole collection of great ugly Christmas’ sweaters isn’t enough, we got you covered with these amazing and eye-catching Christmas-inspired makeup looks that will really make you embody the holiday spirit. Prepare your brushes and deck your face with boughs of holly!
Nothing says Christmas like everything covered in flickering, colored lights. Just like you adorn your tree, why not add these iconic lights to your face to highlight your best features. It looks intricate, but it’s actually quite an easy look to recreate. You’ll just need black eyeliner to trace the cable, some colorful liquid lipsticks for the dots, and white liner for the cartoonish effect.
This is probably the easiest way to show your Christmas spirit with your face, especially if you’re not that skilled at doing your makeup. Just play with the classic red, green, white, and gold colors and add them to your everyday makeup routine.
Let it snow!
No matter where you’re from, we all associate snow with Christmas, and adding some snowflakes into your regular makeup look can be a great way to embody the festivity. Create the flakes with a thin brush (you can even use a tiny art brush to help you with the small details) and white liquid lipstick or liner.
This delicious Christmas treat is also super easy to incorporate into your makeup. A tiny brush is essential to create the white and red stripes. You can use the pattern to create a nice cat eye or even on your lips (which can be easier since it’s a bigger canvas).
“Who's got a beard that's long and white? Santa's got a beard that's long and white,” and now you can as well by adding some elements of this iconic character. One of the trends right now is adding his emblematic hat over the eyebrow, but if you think that’s too much, you can always just play with the colors.
If you love how you decorated this year’s tree and wish you could carry it around with you all day, why not paint it on your face? As you can see, here you have three ideas for different skill levels. So, there you go, now there’s no excuse not to bring that festive extravaganza to your look.
Christmas tree eyebrows
Also related to the Christmas tree style, we had to talk about a trend that's been around since last year: Christmas tree eyebrows. To achieve this quirky yet pretty look, you need to add some gel to your brows and comb them in the direction you like. Add a bit more gel and glitter glue to add the ornaments or whatever you want to decorate them with.
If the tree was a little too much for you, perhaps you can keep it simple and just play with the ornaments. This is really cool, since you can actually use any color you want to make them match your different outfits. Here’s an idea: why not try a 12-day ornament makeup challenge?
Deck the halls with boughs of holly
This is also quite an iconic decorative element of Christmas, and thus, a great idea to try on your face. These look kind of intricate and difficult, but they’re actually really easy to achieve (even easier than the Santa hat, if you ask me). Again, a great thin and detailed brush and good liquid lipsticks can do wonders.
Just hear those sleigh bells
Our final look is actually one of my favorites because I love reindeer so much. You can go for this easy idea by adding reindeer elements to your natural, neutral eye look or get really extra by creating a whole Christmas scene on your face. Get Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, and the others ready to elevate your look to the skies.
Makeup today has become an art form, but it’s also about having fun and taking your creativity to the next level. Don’t be afraid of being extra: it’s Christmas we can be as extra as we want, and these ideas are a great way to do so.
