Now that the holidays are here ‘tis the season to show off your glam factor and break out those stunning glitter eye shadows and bold lip colors you’ve been too-shy-to-try as part of your daily in your daily makeup routine. If glam isn’t quite your glass of champagne, you can still add some pops of color and shine to spice up your holiday look.

Whether you are looking for bold, or simple & subtle, we've gathered some great options that don’t require professional #mua status to slay.

Rose Gold with Soft Pink Lips

While bold colors and glitter are in for the holiday season, they may not be the best choice for you or your intended outfit. This look is for those who may not want to go so bold with colors but still want to add some glam to their makeup routine for the holidays. This beautiful metallic rose gold shadow brings brightness and shine to your eyes making them the center of attention. Applying a long lasting soft pink lip color will really pull the look together.

Festive Green Eyes with Faded Lips


Still not done with your festive Christmas Spirit? Despite what most people think, red and green color combinations don't always look tacky. They can be pulled off together if done correctly. A small amount of shimmery green eye shadow can go a long way when brushed over a smokey eye as shown in this look. This deep red lip has just enough highlight in the center of her pout to make them look voluminous and plump.

Burgundy Lips and Soft Browns

Welcome the new year with a fresh face not clouded by an intense amount of product. You can make a matte burgundy lip the focus by keeping your eye shadow application soft. You can use an eye shadow with a light shimmer to give a little extra pop if you like.

Dramatic Gold Cut Crease

If you are looking for a jaw dropping look this beautiful vampy cut crease from nikkitutorials is perfect! This look has a good mix of soft and flashy. When you eyes are open you only see the soft brown shadow above the eye but then when you lower your lips- BOOM! A beautiful golden cut crease is hidden underneath.

Voluminous Lashes with Nude Lips


Another simple but sultry look for your New Years is this nude lip and bold lash combo. False lashes can really make or break this look as they are the focal point. Grab yourself a pair of our dramatic 3D faux mink lashes to pair with a soft nude lip. Since there isn't much more than lashes on the eye, a shiny lip gloss over your lip color will add the perfect amount of glam to this easy look.

Simple Red Lip and Winged Eye

This ‘New Year New You’ trend is exciting and refreshing, but don't forget the past has something's that should never die. Take your makeup back in time to the 1950’s for the iconic porcelain doll, ruby red lip look - think Marilyn Monroe. This classic throwback look is known for being paired with a beautiful dark winged liner.

Blue with Silver Shimmer
