The holiday season is one of our favorite times of the year, and creating festive makeup looks is one of our favorite things to do! From cranberry red lips and winged eyeliner to sparkling highlighter and metallic hues, in this article, we've gathered together some unapologetically gorgeous festive makeup looks for you to try! Whether you're playing it low-key this year with family gatherings or enjoying cocktails by the fireplace, here are four timeless festive makeup looks that are sure to get you all decked out for the holidays...and beyond!
'Tis the Season To Glow!
This holiday look is all about a playful combination of shimmering skin and glossy lips. The trick is to keep the eyes soft and dewy while putting the focus on your luminous skin and dreamy contour. To achieve this look, opt for a densely pigmented highlight powder, like our Magic Light Pigment in "Golden Light," and apply it to the highest parts of your face, including your cheekbones, cupids bow, and the bridge of your nose. Avari Tip: Dampen your makeup brush slightly before applying to create a more dramatic and luminescent finish!
Turn Up the Drama
Let your lashes do the talking with this sultry, ultra-glam festive eye look. No matter the occasion, full, voluminous lashes will supercharge your makeup look and make your eyes the center of everyone's focus! For the lash gift that keeps on giving, we recommend our Sustainable Strip Lashes in style "Charisma." Easy to apply and sustainable, these faux mink strip lashes perfectly enhance your eyes for the ultimate holiday lash look. Keep the rest of the face fresh and simple, and add a winged liner for extra drama!
This holiday makeup look is all about maximalist glam! Embrace your inner ice queen by applying a shimmery silver eyeshadow to the inner corners of your eyes for an Elsa-like glow. We love to create this look with our Magic Light Pigment in "Cold Kiss," a gorgeously unique shimmering silver that catches the light from all angles! For the ultimate pop, keep the rest of your makeup natural and dewy.
Be Merry, Sparkle, and Shine!
Glitter is arguably one of the reigning trends of every holiday season, and this year is no exception! We love how versatile and easy glitter pigment is to create an unforgettable sparkling holiday look. If you're not brave enough to rock the disco brow trend, opt for an ethereal glitter lid instead! For a festive sparkly eye look, try our Otherworldy Pigment Flakes in, "Glow." This gorgeous, bold gold pigment adds glamour and dimension to any makeup look for a magical sparkle!
