Now you might have already picked out which outfits you plan to wear throughout the holiday season with your beau, but have you thought about what makeup styles you’ll be rocking? If the answer is no or you’re in need of some makeup inspirations, we suggest a few of these gorgeous, elegant makeup looks we are sure your special someone will love.
Light & Natural
You might be surprised to find out that a good majority of men love the natural and no-makeup look, so if yours is one of them, you should go for a subtle and gentle look that will highlight your features without covering your natural elegance.
How to Make It Your Own: Since it’s the holiday season, you can spice up the everyday natural look with a bit of shimmer on the eyes. And to add a touch of glow, apply a light highlight to accent the best features of your face.
For the rest of the makeup, opt for copper, bronze or gold shades for the eyes and combine it with a nude or deep berry shaded matte lipstick. For the final and delicate touch, apply a bit of light gloss on a lower lip and blend it gently with a lipstick.
With their sexy and mysterious vibe, it’s no wonder smoky eyes are one of the go-to makeup looks to do for any occasion, especially for the holidays. It’s timeless classic appeal makes it ideal to work with any outfit.
How to Rock this Look: Creating a smoky eye may look tricky at first, but there many useful makeup tips and tutorials on the internet to help you pull off the perfect smoky eyes just like a pro.
Nothing completes a smoky look like some killer eyeliner, whether you go for a dramatic line or opt for a classic winged liner. If want to soften your lower liner, smudge a bit of bronze shimmery eyeshadow on top of your lower lid to create warmth and dimension. We suggest keeping the lips neutral with a nude lipstick or a lip gloss to keep the eyes as the focal point.
Wild Ruby Lips
One of the easiest ways to create a festive and sophisticated look is to reach for a red lipstick. Like smoky eyes, it’s also a classic that men tend to adore because it lends a playful, self-confident, and slightly flirtatious air to a woman. You’ll be surprised with how quickly a swipe of a red lipstick on the lips can help boost a woman’s confidence.
How To Get the Look: The most important step to do before you apply your favorite red lipstick is to run through a good lip care routine. Red lipstick or stain can be unforgiving to dry, chapped lips so it’s essential that you create the right base.
Now you can choose a bright or a dark shade, opt for a glossy or matte finish, or go for something trendy like an ombre lip. The options are numerous, so be creative. However, we do recommend keeping eye makeup on the minimum. One of our favorite ways to pair a red lipstick is by sweeping a creamy shimmering nude eyeshadow on the lids (unless we want something overly dramatic) and a pair of falsies and high volume mascara.
