Unleashing Your Glam: Holiday Makeup Trends to Light Up the Season

The holiday season is a magical time filled with festivities, gatherings, and joy.  Whether you're attending a glamorous party or celebrating in the comfort of your home, holiday makeup trends offer many options to help you shine bright and embrace the festive spirit. Let's explore some of the hottest trends and tips to ensure your holiday makeup is as radiant as the season itself.

Glowing Skin:

Start your holiday makeup routine by creating a luminous base. Achieving that coveted dewy glow can be achieved with the right skincare and makeup products. Begin with a hydrating primer to prep your skin, followed by a foundation or Beauty Benefit cream that enhances your natural radiance. Opt for a lightweight, buildable formula to allow your skin to breathe.

Highlighters are your best friend during the holidays. Apply a subtle shimmer to the high points of your face—cheekbones, brow bones, and down the bridge of your nose—to capture and reflect the festive lights.

GET THE LOOK: Evalina's Luminous Celestial Face Primer hydrates and prepares the skin to enhance overall tone, making you look naturally radiant; while Radiant Glaze Highlighter gives your skin a subtle bronzed glow with just the right amount of shimmer and a seamless finish. 

Bold Lips:

Nothing says festive like a bold lip color. This holiday season, experiment with rich reds, berry hues, or even deep plum shades. Matte, satin, or gloss – choose a finish that complements your style. A classic red lip is timeless and can instantly elevate any makeup look. Don't forget to use a lip liner to define and perfect the edges for a polished finish.

GET THE LOOK: Evalina's Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Poppy is the perfect shade for the season ahead. This sheer pinkish-red gloss can be worn day or night. Apply a light layer for more subtle colour, or layer up for more intensity. Wear over lipstick for a dazzling natural glow with a hint of sparkle. The non-sticky formula protects and soothes lips for a perfect finish and has a long-lasting shine that provides nourishment and moisture.

Metallic Magic:

Metallic and glittery eyeshadows are a holiday staple. Whether you opt for gold, silver, or rose gold, these shades add a touch of glamour to your eye makeup. Apply metallic eyeshadow to the inner corners of your eyes to brighten them up or go all out with a fully metallic lid for a show-stopping look. Consider using a glitter primer to make sure the sparkle stays put throughout the festivities. I love Laura Mercier's eyeshadow primer.

GET THE LOOK: Evalina's Shimmer Eyeshadow Sticks let you create smoky looks with a shimmering pop of colour in an instant. The smooth-glide formula is easily buildable, and can be layered with other shades, under or over powder eyeshadow for added glamour and drama. To achieve a smoky eye, apply the colour in a gradient, with the darkest colour at the lash line and lightest colour in the inner corner. Available in Pewter and Rose Gold.

The holiday season is the perfect time to experiment with your makeup and embrace a more glamorous and festive look. Whether you prefer a classic and timeless appearance or want to try bold and daring trends, there are endless possibilities to express your style. Let your holiday makeup shine as brightly as the season itself. After all, 'tis the season to be fabulous!
