With the holiday fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to make a splash with your looks at your upcoming holiday parties. So whether you’re going to be seeing friends that you haven’t seen in months or visiting with family that hasn’t seen you since moving into an assisted living facility, the holidays are the perfect time to add a little something extra to your everyday makeup routine.
To help you in doing this, here are three tips for the perfect holiday makeup look.
Try To Keep Things Looking Fresh
For most people, holidays and holiday parties are longer events. Because of this, you’re going to want to choose a makeup look that will be able to last you all day without having to do too many touch-ups. To do this, you’ll want to try to keep your look as fresh as possible.
In many cases, the more makeup you put on, the more touch-ups you’ll have to do throughout the day. So to avoid this, you’ll want to choose a makeup look that won’t require putting too much on. Unless you’re wanting to go for a particularly sexy look, try not to be too heavy handed with any of the makeup you choose to put on, including around your eyes. This will help you to stay looking fresh and beautiful all day long.
Take Care When Using Blush
In the winter months, it’s normal for people to lose some of the color from their skin. To bring some of this color back, you can use blush to try to warm up your skin tone and bring life into your face. However, you’ll want to be careful with how much you apply here.
Ideally, you should try to make your blush appear as natural as possible. This can be best achieved by using a cream blush rather than a powder. With a cream blush, you can blend and blend and blend the color into your cheeks until it’s as pronounced or subtle as you’d like. And if you think you might get hot with all of your cooking and running around, remember that you’ll be getting naturally flushed a bit, too.
Embrace Some Shimmer
Holiday parties are the perfect excuse to add a bit of extra shimmer to your normal makeup looks. Reminiscent of the sparkles of snow and lights, adding some glitter and shimmer strategically can help you really highlight your face.
If you’re not used to using a shimmer with your makeup, try to focus your efforts on your eyelids, your clavicle, and the tops of your cheek bones.
To help you create the perfect makeup look to last you through the whole day of your holiday celebrations, consider using the tips mentioned above as you get ready.
