Celebrating this year’s holiday parties might be limited to zoom or with limited noumber of family and friends but whatever the case may be, we’re definitely celebrating and we are doing it with beauty looks from our favourite runway shows.
Where else can you get makeup-look inspiration if not from the runway, for example Brandon Maxwell Spring’21 beauty look was a nude sultry makeup no makeup look while Versace Spring’21 runway beauty looks were shimmer gold eye with matte red lips.
From our previous blog, we advised on trendy outfits to wear to your holiday parties this year, if you’re going to sparkle in your outfit, you should also sparkle in your makeup too. We’ve also talked about the sparkly makeup/beauty products to shop for a sparkly beauty-look but what beauty-look style should you go for these 2020 holidays?
If you will be looking to sparkle your eyes, then a nude lips or bright red lips is advised, and if you want the sparkle to be on the lips then go gentle on the eyes. Using a gold metallic/glitter eyeshadow paired with a matte red lips is also trending, or going for rosy nude pink eyes with red/bright pink glitter to enhance (this can be worn with beigy brown nude lipstick or pinky beige nude lipstick) is another trend to opt for.
You can also go for smokey eyelook using brown or black shade to create depth and top it with a glittery gold/red, a classic a nude pink/burgundy lips will finish the whole look. Wearing a rosy pink lipsticks either nude shade or original shade is a yes this year. Many beauty brands like Charlotte Tilbury’s jewel eye pot, Huda beauty’s Naughty eyeshadow palette, Tomford’s lipcolor matte Lipsticks has various shades to play with, Huda beauty power bullet lipsticks have various shades of mattes from red to rosy nude, you’re sure to find something to soothe your mood these holidays. You can create ombre lips or one shade lips. Moreso, when it comes to your lips, you don’t have to go for the traditional christmas shades, you can go for metallic blue, metallic purple and so on.(Just make sure you create a balance between both the eyes and lips – (go gentle on the eyes when going loud with the lips and Vice Versa)
Don’t forget your highlighters for your face and body, Fenty’s body lava ranges from rose gold to gold shades for your skin and the Fenty’s Diamond bomb face highlighter comes in gold, bronze, rosegold, white and so on. While applying your highlighters especially for the face, ensure it’s lightly applied so you can achieve a subtle sultry glow around the high points of your cheeks, tip of your lips, forehead and collar bones.
With all the sparkling going on, from our dresses/jumpsuits to our make-up look, a slicked back hairstyle is always advised.
