When you go to a party or an event, you know that there are going to be pictures taken, which is why we try to look our best (preferably with minimal effort). The truth is that there is very little you should do to elevate your makeup from a barely visible everyday look to effortless snapworthy glam! Let’s get you inspired for your next Holiday makeover!

A Femme Fatale Smokey Eye

The combination of smokey eyes and red lips is an absolute classic that you can never go wrong with! It’s dramatic, alluring, and mysterious, and it goes perfectly well with any type of more formal attire. For a softer look, I suggest you build the eye using shades of brown with a subtle winged eye that’s going to give you a slight lift. Don’t forget to add a pop of blush for a more youthful and healthy appearance.

Martini Makeup

This look quickly gained fame on TikTok towards the end of the summer, and it’s essentially a more cool-toned approach to the classic smokey eye, with loads of blinding glitter and dewy skin. It has color, it has drama, and it is definitely dirty, just the way I like to have my Martini!

Glitter Galore

Is it really a party if there is no glitter? I think there is something so beautiful and effective about a very simple face of makeup with silver shimmers splattered all over the eyelids. It’s giving big Euphoria vibes – it’s magical and playful, it makes a statement and, overall, it’s the perfect low-effort festive makeup. Finish off with a juicy glossy lip, and you’re ready to dance the night away!

Pumpkin Spice Makeup

Another groundbreaking trend that took the beauty world by storm is the Pumpkin spice makeup. Inspired by the popular fall drink, this look is everything you expect it to be. It’s created by using warm shades like orange, pink, and brown to build a dreamy eye look. The skin is radiant and plump and the lips are well-defined with a color similar to that of your natural lip shade.

Classic Glam

Last, but certainly not least, we have classic simple glam makeup. The single glitter shadow eye is subtly defined with black liner pencil and mascara. On the lips, we have a matte true red lipstick. Add contour, and blush in a color that corresponds with the eyeshadow, highlighter on the cheeks and the brow bone, and you are good to go!
