The holidays are quickly approaching, and it’s time to embrace the glitz and glamour! One of the things I love most about the holidays is that it’s the perfect excuse to add a little sparkle and boldness to your makeup. Since Penningtons is featuring tons of deep purple hues along with tons of sparkle in their holiday collection, I thought I would incorporate these trends into two makeup looks that are absolutely perfect for the holidays.
The first look is something I would wear to a holiday dinner with the family. The holidays are the perfect time to rock a burgundy lip. I paired this with a light shade of purple eye shadow, with some bright white shadow in my inner corner. I winged out my liner to create the perfect cat eye, and lined my bottom lid with white liner to make my eyes really pop. I finished the look off with a shimmery peach blush, a bit of mascara and a bold straight brow. This look has a sophisticated tone about it, which makes it perfect to wear to that classy holiday dinner.
I would totally rock this second makeup look at a holiday party, as it’s a little bolder than the first look. I stayed with the theme of using deep purple shades along with snowy white shimmer on my eyes (and of course, kept the classic winged liner), but I went a little heavier with its application to give it a more sexy feel. This is perfect for when you are going from a family dinner to a holiday party and want to switch up your look before you head out. This makeup is a little more smoky and sultry. I amped up my lids with a deeper hue and highlight, and coated my bottom lash line with a dark shadow, adding that rocker flair. I went for a brighter red lip with this look, wanting to play off the traditional holiday red that’s always so playful and sexy this time of year. Topped it off with mascara, a bright red blush and some arched brows and voilà!
‘Tis the season to be glamorous! The holidays are the perfect time to rock all that glitz and glitter – so don’t be afraid to bring on the holiday cheer with a bright, bold lip, dramatic eyes, and tons of shimmery makeup magic!
