Looking Your Best For Those Annual Holiday Parties

Are you ready? It’s that time of year again, where we struggle to find the perfect look for our annual holiday parties. We may gripe about them, but we still put in the time and effort to pull off the ideal makeup that fits with these seasonal events. This year, don’t go crazy working tirelessly perfecting your makeup. Take a look below for a simple suggestion on how to put together a look that will leave you feeling confident and, of course, looking very festive.

Go Bold & Flawless

 The holiday season is really one of the bolder times of the year. Think about it, what are the most predominant colors? Red and green, two very very striking colors. You don’t have to work green into your makeup, but a bold and flawless natural look is going to speak true to the season.

You’re probably asking what “bold and flawless” actually means, and it’s pretty simple. Too often we’re led to believe that more is better, especially when it comes to looking our best. We’re told that layers of makeup lend to a more complete look, but that’s not necessarily the case. With a bold and flawless makeup, you’ll want to start with a more natural look, something that gives your skin a shine or a little sparkle. It is the holidays, so a little glimmer is definitely welcome for those holiday parties. This is your flawless look. You’ll have that shimmer of perfection that isn’t overshadowed by layers of makeup.

Oh but wait, there’s more…

You shouldn’t overdo it with eyeshadow colors, either, else you’ll pull the focus from that natural glow we’re going for. A little glitter is okay if you want to feel more in the holiday spirit. Your lips should be a vibrant pop of color on your face that helps your natural beauty to show through. Attend those holiday parties with grace and charm.

As for the bold? Well, what could be more distinct than a lip color that contrasts the natural makeup style? Red is probably the first color that comes to mind, especially considering the holiday season. It’s a safe choice with a variety of different shades to choose from, but it’s not the only lip color out there. You could pick a tone that matches your outfit, but be careful as it’s easy for the two to clash.

Bring on the Holiday Parties

The final look you want is one where your lips become that pop color that accentuates the very simple makeup style. It may sound like it’s a little too simple, especially for a party where people are going to be dressed to the nines. However, the completed look is something elegant and high-end. You can bet your coworkers, family members, or friends are going to admire your natural, bold, and flawless holiday style.

Many of us have multiple holiday parties in December. Remember, it’s okay to recycle a look if you fall in love with it. There is really no reason why you should have to come up with a new style for every party you’re attending.
