The festive season is an opportunity to add glitter to everything, and makeup is no exception. From shimmering eyeshadows to glimmering glosses, the lights on the tree aren’t the only thing set to sparkle this year thanks to our showstopping holiday makeup tutorial.
A 5-Step Holiday Makeup Look
Christmas makeup doesn’t have to be over complicated. Just a few clever products can upgrade your daily look into one that will dazzle during the holidays.
Subtle shimmers are a good place to start. Whether on your eyes, lips, or cheekbones, a touch of sparkle can elevate any natural makeup look. Likewise, opting for a foundation designed to illuminate your complexion is an effortless way to add some glow.
Read on to discover an easy Christmas makeup look, suitable for both day and night, that will see you through the festive season.
Step 1: Apply Your Base
A hydrated complexion is essential to help create a smooth canvas for a party look. After cleansing and toning, apply No7 Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream over the face and neck. Formulated with No7’s powerful collagen peptide-based technology and SPF 30, the cream helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while helping protect from the sun and environmental stressors.
Expert Tip: After prepping your skin, we would normally recommend applying a primer and foundation as the next step. However, as makeup for Christmas is often glitter-heavy, we’d recommend doing these steps after your eyeshadow, so you don’t risk ruining a flawless base with fallout.
