It’s holiday time, that time of year when glamour takes center stage. In a season filled with appearances, from office parties to weekend soirees, raising your style meter is paramount . Yet looking stunning every time you step out may seem like more work than you’d like to undertake. Or perhaps you simply don’t know where to begin. This is why we’ve come up with our holiday beauty guide for women. Using any of these 10 simple beauty tips, you are sure to be the belle of the ball.
Make a bold statement with crimson lips. Sexy red lips are the epitome of holiday allure. Simply select a shade that complements your skin tone. Then tone down the rest of your make-up, wearing just foundation along with a hint of blush and mascara.
There’s just something seductive about black eye-liner. Whether you choose to apply a thin line close to your lash line or a bodacious sweep of winged eye-liner that extends just beyond your eye, balance this intense style with a softly colored lip for a winning look.
This festive time of year calls for a bit of sparkle, and hair offers a perfect backdrop for it. Glimmering glass or rhinestones attached to bobby pins or miniature combs add just the right amount of gleam. Just be sure to keep additional jewelry to a minimum.
For a lush and lively look, go for eyelash extensions. Individually applied with a bonding agent, eyelash extensions are made with fibers that offer the appearance of naturally long, luxurious lashes. Because they last from 4 to 8 weeks, you will enjoy them through all of your holiday events and beyond.
For beauty that smolders, flirtatiously smoky eyes are easily achieved with a charcoal-colored eye shadow that you blend across your lid with a large brush. Follow that with a bit of silvery shadow in the corners of your lid along with black mascara for those bewitching holiday nights.
As an alternative to the sultry darkness of the smoky eye, consider the jubilant aura of shimmery shadow in a golden shade. Complimentary to virtually all skin tones, it has holiday written all over it.
A quick and easy way to transform your hair for a party is to clip on a ready-made braid. Worn as a headband with your own hair pulled back or wrapped around a topknot, this look is instant chic. To guard against slipping, just apply a little hairspray.
Variation on an Updo
While upswept hair is a nighttime staple, wearing variations of the updo will keep it looking fresh. Consider the elegance of a low and loose bun, placed at the nape of your neck. It’s a soft look that showcases the beauty of your face.
Vintage and Trendy
In the same way as you might select vintage fashions, vintage hairstyles such as soft waves are a beautiful holiday look. Pair classic hair with the trendy look of nude lips or with chandelier earrings that move softly. Fabulous!
No holiday look would be complete without a little glitter. From rhinestone earrings or a statement necklace to a sparkling crystal ring or bracelet, a standout piece of jewelry that captures the light will capture admiring glances as well.
While not intended to be worn all at once, these 10 holiday beauty tips are surefire ways to light up the festivities with your beauty this season.
