Tis the season to go for gorgeous! Rich red lips paired with sparkly eyes and a stiff updo is no longer your only go-to party-perfect look—step outside the traditional festive beauty look with one of these fun hair and makeup Trends, whether you prefer subtle and soft or all out fabulous.
Party Makeup Idea
Smoke Out Your EyesA sexy, smoldering stare is pretty much a solid go to look during holiday party season, but make a black smoky eye even more current by fashioning it into a dramatic graphic shape, like exaggerated wings. Use Scotch tape as a guide to ensure your wings are straight and even.
If you’re wearing a stunning strapless dress that’s begging for a bare décolletage, consider rolling up your hair. It’s an elegant, interesting take on the traditional updo. In fact, it feels retro and futuristic at the same time.
Highlight the Inner Corners of Your Eyes
Subtly draw attention to your gaze by applying a hint of shimmer and shine to the inner corners of your eyes. The key is to use a metallic shade that’s close to your complexion. If your skin tone is fair, use champagne. If it’s olive, go for gold. If you’re dark, bronze is your best bet.
Go for a Loose Topknot
The ever-popular topknot is anything but laid-back when the entire look is dual-textured. Palm lightweight high-shine gel onto your crown and brush your strands smooth. Secure with a snag-proof elastic and loosely wrap and pin your hair around the band. Make it a little messy by leaving the ends free.
Rock Bold Blackberry Lipstick
Heads up: This one certainly isn’t for the faint of heart or attention-shy. Swipe an intense mulled-wine color across your mouth to make a strong, mysterious statement and stand out from the crowd. Plus, when it starts to die down, it softens to a matte stain. It’s the lip that keeps on giving!
