Holiday Makeup Looks For 2020

Holiday Makeup Looks For 2020

Whether it’s food shopping, gift wrapping or planning a holiday party outfit, a lot of preparation goes into the holiday season. It’s always a good idea to get ahead of the curve, and the same can be said for your holiday makeup looks. Planning ahead gives you time to explore and experiment with different products and colors to find the holiday makeup look that’s perfect for any event. Below are our favorite makeup looks for 2020, as well as the No7 makeup (and a few very special holiday gifts!) to help you create them. 

2020 Holiday Makeup Looks

Shimmery Eyes

From the tinsel on the trees to the twinkling of the snow, when we think of the holidays, we think sparkle. Brighten things up this season and incorporate some glimmer in your makeup look. The eyes have it on this one: it’s time to swap out your smokey eye for a touch of shimmer and sparkle. 

Inspired by the classic film, the Wizard of Oz™, No7 has created the perfect shimmery eye palette to help you light up the holiday season. With 9 shades to choose from, including Crystal Ball, Cowardly Lion and Tin Man Silver, the Emerald City Eye Palette has everything you need to add some sparkle to your holiday makeup look. 

To help you achieve this look, the No7 Travel Brush Collection includes a Mini Eye Contour Brush and the Angled Eye Liner Brush, as well as a Foundation Brush and Powder Brush. Stored in an elegant pink pouch, this brush set is also perfect touch-ups for when you’re on the go. 

Golden Skin

The days may get darker earlier, but ’tis the season to be glowing all night with a touch of golden highlight. Add some shimmer to your makeup look by sweeping highlighter over key areas. Dab above your cheekbones, to the tip of your nose and just above your top lip for a party-ready, radiant makeup look.  

Bring Out the Burgundy

Berry colors, deep maroons and rich burgundy colors are perfect for a classic holiday makeup look. This year, instead of a holly-inspired, Santa-style red, opt for something darker and bolder to make a statement. This is the year to go beyond cherry-red cheer and bring out the burgundy for that wow factor. 

Our exclusive limited edition No7 Emerald City Collection has all the sparkle, color and beauty you need to achieve these festive makeup looks. This gorgeous gift set contains our Dorothy Red Lipstick, Ruby Slippers Mini Eye Palette, Yellow Brick Road Mini Highlighting Palette and No7 Lash Impact Ultra Mascara to finish the look. Complete with a beautiful emerald green velvet bag, this collection is the perfect indulgent gift for yourself or a loved one who wants to create eye-catching, glamorous makeup looks all season long.  

Emerald Eyes

Jewel tones are a go-to favorite during the holiday season, and emerald green is the crown jewel of this year’s Christmas eye makeup trends. For the perfect Emerald Eyes look, try No7’s Wizard of Oz Power of Eyes Collection. Inspired by the Emerald City of the Land of Oz, this collection has everything you need to achieve a look that will make your friends green with envy. Inside, you’ll find an Emerald City Green Shimmer and Eye Shadow Pot, with a No7 Limited Edition Double Ended Eye Shadow Brush for perfect application. This set also includes No7 Lash Impact Ultra Mascara in Black and the No7 Eye Liner Cyclone in Black for a sultry finish.
