It’s that time of year again! The lights, the bells, the holly hanging everywhere you look. And with that, my favorite holiday beauty looks are back. I love everything about this season. As a beauty fanatic, everything from glitter to red lips is all a go.
Here are some ways you can spread holiday cheer through your beauty regime.
This may sound a little intimidating, but don’t worry. You don’t have to glob on the glitter and look like you have two disco balls for eyes. One way I love to add a little sparkle to my cat-eye is to either outline the black liner with a festive glitter liner or vice versa with the glitter on the inside and a black outline. A little bit goes a long way. This is subtle but adds beautiful detail to a basic liner technique. If you love the cat-eye look, get a liner with a thin tip. It makes it easier to fill in or outline the black liner and allows for you to get that final perfect flick at the end.
Liners I Love
This is a classic but oh so perfect holiday staple. How can you go wrong with a red lip? Find your perfect red and rock it! Are you longing for a Southern California Christmas – that’s what I call Christmas when it’s 75 degrees outside ;). Maybe an orange-red will fit your needs. Are you feeling sultry and sexy this holiday season? A deep cherry red will be perfect for you. And then there’s always the classic, that Marilyn Monroe bright candy apple red. Combine it with a golden cat-eye outlined in black and you will be the perfect holiday picture. Whichever red you choose, you will be turning heads with a bold and beautiful statement.

Oh girl, gold is the way to go! This metallic must-have is always a holiday favorite. You can go all out with a full on metal-eye, with those beautiful shimmers going from the lid to the brow bone. Or you can keep it more low-key with a matte crease and a pop of gold on the lid. When in doubt –go for the gold.
