For most people, the holiday season typically consists of jumping from one party or event to the next, but if 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that we have no choice but to embrace a new “normal.” While it’s unlikely that we’ll be celebrating at a big gathering this year, the holidays are still the perfect time of year to try out some glam new makeup looks.
Whether you love to go all out with glittery champagne eyes and red-velvet lips or prefer a soft holiday glow, there is a beauty look that’s guaranteed to help you put the magic back into the festive season.
If you need a little holiday inspiration, fear not! We’ve created a list of this year’s most gorgeously glam holiday makeup trends — from virtual cocktail parties to cozy date nights and small socially-distanced gatherings; we have all of the party makeup ideas you need to keep you turning heads through to 2021.
Sultry, glossy, and delicious, this festive lip trend captures all the warmth of spiced mulled wine, with none of the hangover! Perfect if you want to rock a statement lip for your zoom holiday party, this holiday trend is super flattering and easy to achieve. Simply layer a matte berry-toned lip lacquer over freshly exfoliated lips, and you’re good to go! If the cold weather has left your lips are in need of a little TLC, prep them beforehand with a 24K Gold Collagen Lip Mask. This moisturizing and richly hydrating lip mask is infused with 24k gold collagen that promises to refresh your lips and smooths fine lip lines, wrinkles & creases. Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes and allow it to infuse your lips with the essence of collagen to ensure a full and smooth festive pout.
Full and Fluttery Lashes
In the year of the facemask, it’s never been more important to get your lash game on point. As the first (and only thing) most people notice about our faces at the moment, full and fluttery lashes can give the illusion of bigger eyes and are the ultimate glam addition to any festive makeup look. If you can’t make it to your lash technician this holiday season, don’t worry, Avari Beauty has you covered. Our reusable magnetic-free eyelash kit is the perfect solution for babes who are allergic to typical lash adhesives or prefer falsies over lash extensions. Self-adhesive and simple to apply with innovative eyeliner and mascara, these reusable lashes ensure comfortable wear and less waste than disposable lashes.
Soft-glam is all about glossy lips, fluffy brows, warm, hazy eyes, and glowing skin. Basically, it’s about blending all of your products onto the skin seamlessly for a barely-there effect — leaving you with an Instagram filter-worthy complexion. In fact, the most important component of a soft glam look is well-hydrated, healthy-looking skin, and as with everything in life, it’s better to start at the source — your skincare routine. We love using Bella Aura’s Hydra Revive Treatment to revive the appearance of dry and dull skin during the harsh winter months. This essential oil-free serum hydrates and soothes the skin to create the perfect base for a glowy soft-glam holiday look. To create the ultimate dewy glow, mix a little in with your foundation and apply to the areas of your face that naturally catch the light, like your cheekbones.
Glittery eyeliner is the perfect way to introduce some subtle holiday sparkle into your makeup repertoire. You can use it to define your eyes by applying a shimmery outline to the top and bottom lash line, or if you prefer a more dramatic look, go all-out glam and apply over a smoky eye. If your peepers are in need of a pick-me-up, gently apply Bella Aura’s Instant Lifting Eye Contour to your orbital bone to rejuvenate the appearance of dark circles, puffiness & fine lines around your delicate eye area.
Beautiful brows are in no matter what the season! Plus, since eyebrows are one of the only parts of our face that show while wearing a mask, they’ve never been more important. Natural, windswept brows are huge right now, and Avari Beauty’s brow lamination service can help you achieve gorgeous, low-maintenance brows for up to six weeks. If you can’t make it to the salon but still want bold, beautiful brows, treat yourself to Revitalash’s Brow Perfecting Gift Collection. Featuring Micellar Water Lash Wash to clean and prep your brows, Revitabrow Advanced, an award-winning serum that conditions and strengthens brows, and Hi-Def Brow Gel, a tinted brow gel that sculpts and defines your brow shape for more sculpted, beautiful eyebrows.
Regardless of how you plan to celebrate this holiday season, we hope you have a wonderful time!
