Hello everyone! December is already here and it means a new article for our beauty and fashion blog as well! Since Christmas Even and New Year´s parties are coming, we will be talking and sharing with you a few Christmas Festive Shiny Makeup Inspiration tips today. Everyone will surely find the right inspiration for themselves, be it something pretty simple or something overly creative. These Christmas Makeup Looks are easy to create even at your home without the assistance of a professional. A few photos below are dedicated especially for the creative souls who like to play with makeup a lot and have an artistic feel. Of course, most of the contained looks are great to wear during the family gatherings or the biggest parties when you would like to draw whole attention to yourself. Without anything else, let´s already dig into it, shall we? 🙂
Soft Classy Romantic Pink with a touch of Metallic
The first makeup look we chose is composed of a light rosy colour spread all over the lid. In the crease, there is a deeper dusty rose colour used. To make it more interesting and vibrant, use a rosy or rose gold metallic liquid eyeliner to stronger the festive vibes.
Fine White Glitters With a Soft Fading Emerald Eyeliner
For this makeup look, let´s start with a transparent eyeshadow with tiny fine glitters to spread all over the lid. Follow by drawing the emerald green eyeliner. If you do not have the right eyeliner at home, you can use the emerald green eyeshadow. The sharp wing of the line can be done by using a sharp brush, e. g. the one used especially for the eyeliners or the eyebrows. Add a bit of colour to the inner 1/4 of the lid and blend the upper side of the eyeliner to make the “fading” effect.
Vibrant Red Metallic Glitters and Bold Black Eyeliner
In this case, it is important to start with the red eyeshadow all over the lid. Be sure to blend it properly so there are no sharp edges of it below the eyebrow! It does not look pretty, nor professional. Spread a bit of the leftover colour on a down lid and make a thin red line. On a top of the red eyeshadow, put there the red glitters (even the golden ones can look pretty!) all over. Be careful to spread it only on the lid – do not bring them below the eyebrow. You can also use a glitter fixer underneath to make them hold on the lid better and not falling down. A bold black gel eyeliner together with the dramatic false lashes is a must for this makeup look!
Christmas Festive – Sparkly Red and Green
Red and green are the colours that have been associated with Christmas for a long time. Why try separating them, right? Let´s put them together since they can also make a fabulous combo! Before playing with the colours, let´s start with the base – choose a neutral eyeshadow to put all over the lid and follow it with soft brown colour in the crease. If you would like to, add more intensity to the crease by choosing the darker brown. This step will make your eyes look “dolly” and deep. After that, decide which one of the colours you will put on a top and lower lid. Even in this case, you can help yourself with drawing the line by the eyeshadows if you do not have the right ones at home. Add some glitters on top to make it look festive!
Snowflake Queen – Dusty Pink, Snowy White Glitter & Dark Red
With this makeup look, we are taking our inspiration to whole another level. As you can see, the base of the lid is covered by a dusty pink rosy eyeshadow that is slightly darker on the sides. Right in the crease line – or better said just right above it – there is a dark red eyeshadow blended followed by the snowy white glitter line in the middle. If you would like to re-create this look, we do highly recommend you to start just with the blending the eyeshadow above the crease, since if you will not get it done perfectly at first, you will not ruin the whole look. When you are done with blending, adding the dusty rose and snowy white eyeliner is a piece of cake! If you would like to deepen the look, use a thinner black eyeliner with a longer wing to the side. If you are brave enough, add a few small snowflakes below the eyebrow by using the liquid or pencil eyeliner in white colour.
Candy Cane mixture of Red, and White with Shiny Rhinestones
There are a few people who are truly fond of the candy canes. Do you like them as well? If your answer is yes, you can try this candy cane inspired makeup! It not only looks artistic, but it brings happiness too, do not you think? It looks really playful! To re-create this look, you will need two important colours – bright red and white. For the lower lid, use a red eyeshadow and blend it softly to create a slightly “fading” effect. On a top lid, draw a straight and slim red line. Wait for a few seconds to dry it properly and start drawing the stripes with the white liner. If you would like to, you can use a very thin layer of a black liner drew closer to your lashes, but it is optional. To spice it up a bit, use the rhinestones or different shapes glitter on the eyebrow. Also, do not forget to use a highlighter (especially in a light gold shade) just below the tip of your eyebrows. Adding the snowflakes elements is completely up to you.
Something for a Gingerbread Lovers
Nex makeup look is composed of the shades of brown with a slight touch of golden vibes. Golden touch will give your makeup a luxurious feel. It may look a bit difficult, but it actually isn´t at all! Imagine doing your eyes only with the shades of brown you would like to use for the look. If you will blend everything nicely together, use the mixture of the selected colours also for the lower lid, but make it a bit softer. Add a gold shiny eyeshadow in the inner corner of the eye and use a light layer of the same eyeshadow for a top eyelid. Just to make it a bit shiny. They draw a black think eyeliner close to the eyelashes. After being done, draw a few white “drops” at the end of your eyeliner´s wing and make a curvy line in your crease with the same product. Next step is applying tiny balls just above the curvy line and a few of them on the bottom lashes.
For the gingerbread eyebrows, draw it like you normally do. Then grab the white liner again and colour the 1/3 of it from the beginning of the eyebrow. You can add a few of the “falling drops” there as well if you would like to. After everything is done, place there two plastic gingerbreads. You can use those made for the nail arts and you are done!
