Tis the busiest time of the year! But whether you are already lacking rest, being deprived of sleep, and eating less healthy than you usually do, there is no excuse to look less fabulous and be party-pretty this season.
If you are not yet sure on what look to wear, this article will teach you the Christmas makeup ideas that can create your most dazzling and party-perfect look–in no time.
9 Last-Minute Christmas Makeup Ideas
Here are some of the simplest and easiest hair and makeup tips that you should try:
#1. GO METALLIC!
While any colour goes well for Holiday parties, you will look more stunning in metallic colours. Show off your gorgeous look and sizzle in the shades of gold, silver, copper, bronze and chrome!
#2. CREATE A CLEAN CANVAS
Your makeup base affects your overall look, especially if you’ll choose to wear a metallic make-up. The secret to a perfect finish is a clean base, so when starting your makeup, make sure to apply a foundation that matches your skin tone.

- Vincent Longo Water Canvas Foundation
- Vapour Organic Beauty Atmosphere Luminous Foundation
#3. AMP UP YOUR ROSY CHEEKS
There is no excuse for not wearing a blush during the Holiday season. Give emphasis to your natural blush by combining colours that complement each other well. Layer with a light blush, then apply a darker counterpart to achieve a natural and rosy glow.
#4. ADD SOME SPARKLE TO YOUR EYES
It’s the holiday season and there is no better time to wear an icy look than now. Add some glitter to your shadow and pair with a cat-eye line to look fabulous and perfect for a winter wonderland themed party!

#5. CREATE LUSCIOUS LIPS
Try a rich and velvety look this party season. Red lipstick is great, but you can opt for a more festive variant by using a metallic pigment of gold and red over your usual red lipstick. Not only will it make your lips look luscious, but will also make it possible for your lipstick to last even after hours of partying!
#6. WANT SOMETHING SUBTLE?
If you are not comfortable with heavy makeup, it doesn’t mean that you can’t do anything special to your Christmas makeup. A shimmery look is classy and will make you look demure and stunning, without losing your natural glow!
#7. PUT SOME GLITTER TO YOUR NAILS
It’s a festive season and this is the perfect time to go overboard! You’ll look fabulous with more glitters added on your nails. Shimmer and shine by switching to a more astonishing nail colour that is not overwhelming, and in fact complements your look.
#8. ADD EXTRA BODY TO YOUR HAIR
Try a new way to part your hair. If you usually part your hair on the left, right, or middle, switch to a new side. This is a simple way to achieve a different look and at the same give your hair the extra body it needs.
#9. NO-MAKEUP LOOK STILL WORKS
Of course, there will be times when you’d want to look naturally simple and pretty, especially on Christmas dinners with the family. On days when you’d rather skip the metallic or sparkly look, you can always go for a no-makeup look that can make you look as mesmerising as you want to be!
