Get A Simple, Festive Makeup Look For Christmas In 8 Easy Steps – Evie Magazine

It's finally that time of the year again – Christmas is here! That means family time, tons of presents, festive decorations, and the perfect excuse to glam up. We all want to look our best during the holidays, and a festive makeup look can do just that!
However, if heavy makeup and elaborate looks are not your thing, don't worry – you can still create a beautiful festive look with some simple products in a few steps. Here's how to achieve that perfect makeup look for Christmas in eight easy steps:
Christmas is all about the glitz and sparkle! Therefore, you want to start this makeup look with a dewy, glowy, and hydrated base. To achieve this, start by applying a moisturizer, followed by a primer and lightweight liquid foundation with a satin finish. You can also add a few drops of liquid highlighter to your foundation or moisturizer for an extra dewy effect. Blend everything with a brush or a damp beauty blender for that perfectly smooth canvas that's prepped for the next step.

Christmas looks call for a classic rosy glow! Take your favorite blush and apply it along the upper part of your cheeks to achieve that sculpted yet naturally flushed look. You can also add a tiny bit of blush over the bridge of your nose for a cute "I'm cold" makeup moment that seems to be trending this winter.

Adding highlighter on the highest points of your face can take your Christmas look from average to extraordinary! Apply a highlighter along your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose to give yourself an extra glow that will make your makeup look magical under the Christmas lights.

Besides highlighting your face, you can also add a touch of sparkle to your eyes for that extra festive vibe. Take a sparkling, glittery eyeshadow and apply it over your eyelids and the inner corners of your eyes. Use cream eyeshadow or highlighter instead of powder for a more natural look. On the other hand, if you want your sparkles to be noticed from across the room, apply a glittery powder eyeshadow with a damp flat brush to intensify its effect.

No makeup look, especially no Christmas look, is complete without a classic winged eyeliner. To achieve a beautiful, thin wing, start by drawing a thin line from the outer corner of your eye outwards and then extend it into a flick. Then, simply bring it back to the lash line and fill in the empty space with the same eyeliner or a different color if you're feeling adventurous. The best results are achieved with a liquid eyeliner that has a thin and soft brush, as it will give you more control and precision.

Adding extra fullness is optional, but you can't deny that dramatic lashes make all the difference in a festive makeup look. If you want to keep things natural yet voluminous, use at least two coats of mascara. However, if you're looking for something more intense, opt for a pair of wispy false eyelashes to draw attention to your eyes.

Add definition to your arches and make them look fuller with a few strokes of your favorite eyebrow pencil. Start from the inner part of your brows and gently draw small, hair-like strokes towards the end. You can also coat your brows with a layer of brow gel to set them in place and give them that natural but better look.
Product To Try: Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Wiz Pencil, $25
Finally, the star of any Christmas makeup look: the red lip! Before applying this bold color lipstick, make sure to exfoliate and hydrate your lips and line the edges with a lip liner to add definition. Once your base is ready, you can apply a shiny, satin lipstick in a classic, festive red shade to complete the look.
