Festive Makeup Edit

Festive Makeup Edit

With the season of celebrations dawning upon us, it’s time to hop parties or be on a vacation, which means putting your ‘best face forward’ round the clock, literally. Be it dramatic eyes or statement lips, we have got you covered. 

Jewel Tones

Do we even need to say that this season is all about statement eyes over statement lips? Amp up the glam quotient with bejeweled eyes and be in the spotlight. From tinted eyeshadows to metallic pigments, emerald green is the official festive colour of 2019. Take inspiration from actress and singer, Lucy Hale who lets her eyes take the lead while creamy soft pink blush and nude lips seal the deal.

Create the look using:

  • Tinted brow gel–Granite, Anastasia Beverly Hills.
  • Shadow extreme flat–Emerald Green, Tom Ford.
  • Rockateur rose gold blush–Pink, Benefit Cosmetics.


Cat Kohl Eyes

The classic cat eye gets a festive facelift in this easy to achieve look. Play it up with double coat of mascara for romantic lashes, and pick nude-brown shades for the lips and cheek to compliment the look. Channel the 70’s vibe like supermodel, Lily Aldridge and style your hair in textured waves for the perfect retro chic.

Create the look using:

  • Le Rouge ultra matte lipstick–Nude Androgyne, Givenchy.
  • Aqua XL Eye Pencil–Diamond Black, Make Up For Ever.
  • Double wear stay-in-place foundation, Estée Lauder.


Monochrome Red

The raving monochrome trend gets a party makeover with complimenting blush and eyeshadow to match the ruby lips. We dare you to take it a notch above and match it with your outfit like celebrity pop star, Katy Perry. Make sure to go easy on your eyes and cheeks with a hint or dust of colour when going all out in shades of crimson.

Create the look using:

  • Monochrome red makeup visionairy gel lipstick–227, Sleeping Dragon, Shiseido.
  • Eye shadow palette–Ruby Obsessions, Huda Beauty


Sunset Glow

Let your inner diva take the centrestage and sparkle in the sheer golden glow. Singer Jennifer Hudson pulls off the champagne hue in all its shine and shimmer, while clear gloss and messy braids tone it down for an effortless look. Apply generous coats of mascara or you may opt for a pair of flattering false lashes to create the ultimate molten drama.

Create the look using:

  • Custom enhancer drops bronzer–Candlelight, Cover FX.
  • Maxi eyeshadow palette– Sicillian Notes, Kiko Milano.
  • Gloss Angeles extra shine–clear, Smashbox.
