You don’t really need a reason to pamper yourself and enhance your natural beauty with the help of makeup, but Christmas is definitely the period when you can really have fun with your look. With Christmas just a couple of days away, we’ve decided to lend a hand and put together a fabulous selection of Christmas makeup ideas that will make your 2012 Christmas make-up memorable! Regardless if you’ve decided to spend the holidays in the comfort of your own home or partying with your closest friends, the following Christmas makeup ideas will surely help you decide which woman you want to transform yourself in for the holidays, so check out these makeup looks and choose which one will work its magic on you.
A sultry makeup look that radiates is always a great idea as far as Christmas make-up goes and fortunately there’s an array of radiant, sheer and metallic finish makeup products that have an almost tropical allure and that you can turn to regardless of your budget. For this type of look make sure you use an illuminating foundation and a highlighter which you’ll apply from the temples down towards the apple of the cheeks to add that freshness and glow that makes heads turn. For the eyes use dark tones as well as gold, copper metallic pigments and finish the look with a blush and a metallic lipstick that compliments your complexion and eyeshadow color choice.
The Drama Queen
Do you love vivacious pigments? But most importantly are you brave enough to play with vivacious makeup pigments? If yes, bring out your inner drama queen and put the most seductive and intense pigments to work. Purple/magenta, emerald green as well as black are the most popular eyeshadow shades to use when trying to add depth and drama to your eyes, so get creative and sculpt your peepers to perfection. A bit of eyeliner smudged across the lash line, lashings of mascara (if you’ve got a hot pair of dramatic falsies use it!) and either a fierce red/berry tone lipstick or a nude lip color will help complete your look and give you a cinematic allure that will make traffic stop!
If you’re thinking of playing it safe or you just want your Christmas makeup to look natural and romantic, soft pastel pigments are the answer to your needs! Keep the eyes defined with a shimmery sheer pink/beige (you can also go with bare eyelids), light lashings of mascara, add a natural flush to your cheeks with a soft pink/salmon/peach blush and plump up the lips with a sheer lip gloss or lipstick to complete your enviable demure look. Now all that’s left is to have a Merry Christmas!
