One of the best times of year for makeup is the holiday season. There are so many ways to style your eyeshadow, lips, and eyeliner that make your makeup look festive, beautiful, and don’t forget, fun! If you’re not used to wearing bold makeup, the upcoming holidays are the perfect time to play around. Break out that dark eyeshadow, bold lip colors, and start playing around, because chances are you have some sort of event in the next few months to attend where you’ll need to glam up a bit. Here are 8 great ideas to inspire your makeup as we enter the holiday season.
Nothing says the holidays more than gold glitter and red lips. It’s a classic look that’s timeless, bold, and beautiful. I love how the winged eyeliner makes an even bigger statement that finishes off the whole look.

If you aren’t into wearing bold lipstick and bold eyeshadow, try doing something a little more natural. It will still look beautiful and even though it doesn’t scream “the holidays” it sure looks timeless.
Sometimes, when you have a bold lip it’s nice to keep your eyes a little more subtle and natural. It keeps a nice balance on your face and besides, you can’t go wrong with a red lip for the holidays.

Who says you can’t look sexy for the holidays? If you’re feeling a little adventurous, go for a dark and sultry look.

If you really want to be festive for the Christmas season, then use the Christmas colors on your face. Green eyeshadow and red lips is perfect for Christmas and looks beautiful.
You really can’t go wrong with a smokey eye for any event. It’s a great look for any party, especially a get together, dinner, or party for the holidays.

Just like smokey eyes are always perfect for an event, so is a nice, bold, red lip. It says that you’re confident and makes a bold statement, especially when it’s paired with a dark, sultry, smokey eye.

Ombre has become a very popular color scheme in just about everything for the past couple of years and has even transitioned itself into makeup. Ombre lips are beautiful, colorful, and are a nice option as opposed to plain red lips.
