TextLena Lee Makeup Artist
Christmas is probably my favorite holiday, as there are Christmas trees everywhere I go in the Xinyi District. Christmas dinner parties are also great opportunities to take all the photos you didn't take this year, so with all the gifts and outfits ready, shouldn't you take your makeup seriously too? If you still need ideas, please look at what I’ve prepared for you.
This year's Christmas makeup will follow a smoky theme, and smoky makeup is not just black; it can be in any color. The most important thing is that you use all kinds of shades to create layers.
The first thing you can do is to use dark cream eye shadow as a base, or you can use an eyeliner gel. The advantage of using a cream product as a base is that it makes the eyeshadow last longer, not to mention the eyeliner glue, which will stay on for 72 hours.
The next step is choosing color eyeshadow color. You can use a dark eyeshadow near the end of the eye and the base of the eyelashes. Eyeshadow and eyelash techniques work wonders in adding dimensions. You can use eyeliner to define your area of focus and put on eyeshadow.
The highlight here is the glitter. This time I will use a molasses chip to strengthen the area at the head of the eye and then brush on mascara. If you use loose powder or eyeshadow powder with glitter, you can use your hand or brush to wet it with makeup and then dip it into the glitter to make the color more saturated.
When the skin dries quickly in winter, I will choose a shinier blush in cream form that is moisturizing. You can mix your lip makeup with glitter and lip gloss to bring out the shining elements; choosing sequins with smaller particles is also recommended.
You already put in so much effort on the makeup. You can’t ignore the details on your nails. Christmas will always be based on a red color scheme, which can go all the way to the New Year. You can have simple and festive French or cat eye if you feel a single color is too monotonous.
After dressing up, please give yourself a round of applause for what you did for Christmas, such a perfect ending for the year.
