When it comes to festive makeup, there are three mandatory things you must (or at least feel obliged) to incorporate into your look. I narrowed it down into 3 things, let’s see if you’re nodding along until you finish reading this.
What is festive makeup without red lips? Be it long-lasting matte red that withstand heavy dinner and creamy dessert, or juicy-looking red that draws everyone’s eyes. Red lips is the staple of festive makeup, and I don’t think there’s anyone who can deny that. A couple of cult favorite includes MAC Ruby Woo or Russian Red, or Rimmel Kate Lipstick in #1 for affordable option.
Or smack-dab glitter on your lids. You just cannot not blind everyone with your light-reflecting eyeshadow whenever you flutter your eyes. Shimmer shadow has the perk of making you more awake as well. Some of them can be difficult to work with, but once the formula is right, they’re the best thing ever invented in earth after sliced-bread. I personally recommend Burberry Eye Color in Gold Pearl or Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma. Tom Ford Honeymoon and CT Dolce Vita is everyone’s favorite quad.
When your eyes is not enough, you can go with your nails. A stroke of glittery polish on the tip of your nails ala French manicure increases your festiveness by folds while still maintaining your class. Essie Summit of Style is the classic gold-glitter polish, or you can try their Stroke of Brilliance if you want a more fun color. Butter London Doily Overcoat is a unique overcoat with pink and white glitter than can transform any of your polish into a bright, festive nails.
