1. Introduce Glitter

Get into the holiday spirit by adding gold to your look. There are plenty of products out there, from gold eyeliner and mascara to eyeshadow that can add some elegance and sparkle to your makeup.

Rocking a bold, red lip can instill a new confidence. Pair your classic red lip with a natural shadow eye to dress up your attire.There are a variety of tones of red available, making it possible to find a red color that fits your skin tone!

3. Glow It Up!

The summer sun may be gone but that doesn’t mean your skin shouldn’t radiate. Invest in a good serum to keep your skin glowing. Pair it with your favorite highlighter to complete the look and add that extra shimmer.

4. Showcase Your Lashes!

Eyes that pop get noticed. Glam up your lashes before your holiday party with a set of false lashes. Whether you opt for natural looking or dramatic, lashes are a great option for your special event.


5. Pack a Punch With a Smokey Eye

If you prefer a subtle nude lip to a bold red, try amping up your look with a smokey eye instead. A tried and true favorite for a glam going-out look, the classic smokey eye matches a variety of looks. One of our favorite pallets is the Classic Smokey Eye Collection from MUD Cosmetics.


6. Go Natural

Embrace your inner beauty by going minimal on the makeup. Choose a light foundation that lasts all day and keep it simple with nude eyeshadows. Pair with a light mascara and eyeliner to enhance your natural features.

7. Make Your Look Your Own

The holidays are a great time to experiment and try something new with your look. Instagram has some great makeup inspiration, or consider furthering your makeup education in with our make-up artistry program of study.
