Deciding Your Christmas Makeup Looks

You may pay special attention to your Christmas makeup look for many reasons.

Many of you will spend the first Christmas in your boyfriend’s family house, which is fantastic.

Some others are going to different Christmas parties, and some are just looking for ideas for a Christmas photo album.

Depending on your event type, you can opt for a simple, classic, artistic, or glamorous one; you are free to do so!

Nothing I’m sharing here is written in the rock, so despite the usual pattern, we notice when we talk about Christmas makeup ideas, you should do what you feel more comfortable doing.

Basics Of Christmas Makeup Looks

My suggestion for basic Christmas makeup is to invest in reddish blushes and lipstick tones. For the eyes, I love golden or copper and a nice black cat eye eyeliner.

There are some patterns to help us get in the Xmas vibes, for example, wearing vivid red and green, which are the classic colors.

But there are neutral color palettes such as soil red, which is pretty, and wine colors. But you can play with neutral green, red, and even pink tones.

If you like the glam style, we cannot forget the shimmery pallets, including silver, golden, and rose gold.  My favorites are the nude and shimmery pastel shades.

Red Lipstick

It is not a rule, but vivid red lipstick is a classic for Christmas. Some people don’t like vivid red, but you can mess around with different shades.

I have the Dior Rouge Lipstick, which has a long duration, and I love it. Chanel Rouge offers various shades, varying from velvet to matte textures and beautiful colors.

If you don’t wear any makeup and go out just with the red lipstick, you are ready to go, as it will give a total glow-up in milliseconds.

However, if you are still looking for alternatives, purple, darker tones of pink and golden lipstick could be a way to go.

Tip: If you want longer-lasting lipstick, use matte or semi-matte colors.

There are several possible color options, such as red, green, gold, and silver, all in different shades, nuances, and finishes.

BOLD Xmas Makeup

A bold Christmas makeup look carries more audacious artistic traits. This make-up is produced based on vibrant colors and more robust features.

I love these green eyeshadows that make the eyes pop. In the image above, you have an example with nude lipstick, so you can see how you can mix things up a little.

In the image below, you have an example of metallic green eyeshadow with vivid red lipstick, a perfect example of how two vivid colors can be combined in the same look.

Smokey Eyes

Smokey eyes are stylish for Christmas. They are sexy and give a touch of glamour to any look regarding the occasion.

Depending on your taste, you can opt for a matte or shimmery version. 

With the smokey eye, you can quickly go from basic to classic, chic to performance, with minor adaptations.

Eyeliners are a classic makeup for Christmas, and even though you can use them in any way you want, a medium to the thick line will match perfectly with the occasion.

For the best look, try to make a cat eye eyeliner, add red lipstick, and you’re ready for any occasion. 

Inverted Cat Eye

Inverted Cat eye is now trending on social media, which is a good idea. Mark the waterline, tracing the line towards the temples.

Artistic Makeup

Why not try artistic makeup this time for Christmas? They are fun, and I bet everybody will compliment you with a great smile!
