Christmas Make Up Tips for the Holidays

20 Dec

Who doesn’t want to look and feel great for the holidays? While you may not want to go to the expense of purchasing brand new make-up there are a few tips and tricks you can do so you feel wonderful.

One of the easiest make up tips is to simply add some shimmer to your face. You can use either gold or silver eye shadow that has a shimmer to it. This adds sparkle to your face and makes you look and feel festive.

If you are in the mood to try something new then try combing the traditional gold and silver Christmas eye shadow with other colors. Use blue or green or even purple. Apply it in horizontal stripes and blend it well. Your eyes will stand out more if you use a thin eyeliner and then apply lots of mascara. For your lips keep them to neutral shades by just adding lip gloss.

Not every woman likes the idea of wearing shimmering eye shadow. You can easily tone things down by adding just a touch of shimmer to the inner corner area of your eyes. This helps to make your eyes look brighter.

Why not try different eyeliners this holiday season? They are not that expensive to buy and can really help add interest to your eyes. You can wear eyeliner that is applied thinly or you may want to thicken your lines. Or you may prefer to tone things down and spruce up your hair style instead. This still adds emphasize to your face without using too much make-up.

If you love wearing lipstick then a dark red color is perfect for the Christmas season. Most people recommend that you should only emphasize one feature on your face. So this could be your eyes, lips or your hair. If you over do things then your make-up may look false and too made up!

An easy way to get a dramatic Christmas look is to put your hair into a ponytail. This highlights your face and draws attention to your main feature.

If you want to add a glow without adding a shimmer effect then use bronzers and highlighters. Bronzers help to add color to your cheeks as well as helping to define your cheek area. You may want to use a blush which contains a gel base as this helps to add that glossy effect.

For a more sophisticated look put your hair up into a bun and use a wonderful lip color on your lips. This look works every well for those formal Christmas parties. If you want to add a touch of glamour try putting your hair into a bun on side of your head. Blow drying your hair will help to give it a bouncy look and feel to it.

Use the above tips and you will no doubt be the belle of the ball this Christmas season.
