If you are looking for some makeup inspiration for this Christmas. We have some ideas that will surely help you to look festive and sparkly so that you’ll be the belle of the party!
Glitter Cut Crease

The cut crease is such a hard look to achieve at home, especially if you’ve never practiced it before. The one tip we would definitely give to you is practice, practice, practice! Work on the cut crease first, and then clean it up afterward if necessary. Trying to achieve the nude eyelid, and then adding the darker or brighter cut crease later, is much harder to achieve.
Gold Glitter Eyes + Red Lips
BH Cosmetics Glitter Collection
Kat Von D STudded Kiss Creme Lipstick – Outlaw
Kat Von D Lock-It Hydrating Primer
When it comes to Christmas, you can’t get a more iconic look than red lips and gold glitter eyes. It is two of the biggest shades associated with the festive season. To achieve this brilliant eye makeup look, you’ll need to start with a primer. This is important to make sure your eye makeup doesn’t move at all. Glitter has a habit of getting everywhere, so make sure you hold a piece of tissue underneath the eye so you can mop up any spills. You could also consider putting translucent powder down, and then brush it all away, with the excess glitter when you’re all done.
Black Glittery Smokey Eyes
For a real difference this party season, don’t just settle for a plain old smokey eye.Add a touch of glitter! It instantly brightens things up, and can also stop from you looking too “gothic” if your smokey eye has come out much smokey than you’d first anticipated. If you want easy Christmas makeup ideas to copy this season, add a touch of glitter. It doesn’t matter what colour or shade you’ve used for your smokey eye, brown, black, charcoal greys, or even colour such as greens and blues, they instantly look more festive with a touch of glitter!
Green + Gold Look
And if you’re not bold or brave enough to go for a solid green eyelid, how about green eyeliner? We love the way it’s been teamed with the pop of gold, bringing the two festive shades together. Here’s a great tip if you don’t have a green eyeliner to hand. You can use a regular eyeshadow as eyeliner with a small lid filled with water, and your regular green eyeshadow. Dip the brush in the water, brush the excess moisture off, and then dip in the green eyeshadow, applying and building up as you would with regular eyeliner. You may find that you need a couple of layers to get that green pigment through, but you can achieve exactly the same look as a liquid eyeliner.
Dark Gold Eyes + Dark Lips
Kat Von D Current Crush: Glitter Gel (Limited Edition)
It’s hard work wearing big eye makeup and big lips at the same time, but this gold and dark red combo show you how to do it the right way. The eyes, although packed with shimmer and shine, are quite muted, leaving the big red lips to do the job they were intended to do. That tiny hint of pale shimmer on the inside corner of your eyes really help to open them up to, and it works with the gold eyelid shade!
Your sizzling Christmas look is ready to capture the hearts around! It’s high time to put on your high heels and chic garments and get on the dance floor.
