Top 5 festive inspirations

In the true spirit of Christmas, I’ve prepared a gift for you – a collection of my favorite Christmas makeup looks you can try this year and blow everyone’s X-massy socks off!

1 – Christmas beauty

This will be MY look for this year’s Christmas party. Rich red, luscious lips? Check! Gold, glittery eyes? Check! Sexy cat eyes? Check! The glitter really amps up the look and will make your eyes pop. (eyes via Laura G)

One of the best Christmas makeup looks - gold glitter eyeshadow, sexy eyeliner plus dark wine lipstick - fab! | @Cath_Millen

2 – Festive nails with a sparkle

To avoid unnecessary stress and rush just before Christmas dinner, I’ve tested a few styles already. This one looks best! I’ve used essie Nail Color in Bordeaux as a base and a no-name glittery nail polish from my local market.

I'm totally rocking these nails this Christmas! | @Cath_Millen

3 – How to do Christmas makeup? Bold eyes & nude lip!

What a fabulous idea – we love these really bold dark eyes, paired with a nude lip with just a tiny bit of gold-ish shimmer. For some additional drama, fake eyelashes will add some more festive magic. (via Jamie Genevieve)

4 – Christmas party hairstyle

This gorgeous festive look proves that makeup should complement the hairstyle and vice versa. The complexion looks perfect thanks to airbrush foundation, and the red lips are the true star of the show. Curly fishtail hairstyle adds the elegance and glamour. (via Vivian Makeup Artist)

5 – Winter is coming

Embrace your inner Snow Queen this Christmas with silver eye shadow and frosty lips. You’ll look fierce thanks to a stylish updo & highlighted cheekbones. (via Framed Network)
