Do you have a holiday makeup in mind? Get ready for countless parties and get-togethers with quick and easy holiday makeup looks that will amaze your friends and family.

Easy Holiday Makeup Looks To Look Your Best

The holiday season is just around the corner and you should be ready for the best holiday makeup looks to slay the events you’re attending. I’ve chosen holiday makeup looks that are easy to do. First, I want to make sure you’ll be ready to wine and dine at work. In fact, many of these styles can be worn at your workplace, saving you time and energy. Just do a bit of touch-up and you’re good to go. Second, simplicity is still the best. While nothing is stopping you from looking wild and outrageous, I want you to give you styles you can do.


1. No Makeup

If you’re blessed with radiant skin, all you need is a matte nude lipstick and perhaps a mascara. However, if you’re suffering from a skin hangover, you can achieve the same makeup holiday look by using a primer first to hide those blemishes or this product to revive your skin before you put your light makeup for the ultimate holiday makeup look. 

2. Minimal Holiday Makeup

The minimal holiday makeup is what you need when you want a glowing face any time of the day. Your go-to makeup will include a highlighter like My Mimi from Mac x Mariah Carey collaboration or a contouring foundation. If you have a beautiful facial bone structure, you can apply the foundation under your chin and blend to emphasize your jawbone. Complete the look with a bold lipstick and a pink blush, and voila – beautiful!

3. Contrast

Create mystery in your look by wearing the contrasting makeup. It’s either you have a smoky eyeshadow but nude lips or a strong pair of lips and very little makeup around the eyes. A similar style you can follow is the soft grunge. The point here is we don’t want your face to come out strong especially if you’re wearing a more casual holiday outfit.

4. Bold Lips

The holidays  are one of the best times to play around with lipstick colors. You can go deep red, and there’s no judgment for the perfect makeup for holiday season.

5. Winged Eyeliner

Let’s face it, a winged eyeliner is a classic – and a hit – whether it’s the holiday season or not. It makes any eye more dramatic in less than 2 minutes! But why don’t we update that a bit and use a colored eyeliner? That will make your holiday makeup ideas even more festive.

Or you can try another color like this!

6. Intense Eyeshadows

It definitely looks like the season for intense makeup. If you can’t have the no-makeup look, your next best option is the powerful, smoky look. The best way to achieve that is to do great with your eye makeup. When it comes to colors, bold shades always work best. So we have reds, oranges, and golds (and a combination of them).

7. Colored Undereyes

8. Fluttery Eyelashes
