There is nothing more fun that playing with makeup. And with christmas around the corner there is no better time than now to try out some fun new makeup looks for the festive season or even a specific holiday party you’re planning to attend.
Makeup is such a fun way to express your creativity and to feel more beautiful. Christmas makeup takes that to a whole other level! The season is festive, expressed by the use of fun bright, colors; the beautiful reds and greens and golds. There is literally no better season to express your creativity with makeup, to try out new and fun looks. Maybe even things a little out of your comfort zone – like adding a little extra shimmer and highlight to your foundation, or trying out that dramatic smokey eye, or wearing that bold red lipstick.
You can’t go wrong in the holiday season. You could go for soft glam with nude shades and a little shimmer here and there or dramatic full glam with bold colors and blinding highlights, it’s really up to you!
