You know a holiday beauty look when you see it—maybe there’s some glitter strewn about, or a pop of velvety red lipstick. And don’t forget that this is the one time of year you get a pass on a little too much highlighter. Now that we’re heading into party season, let these red carpet and runway beauty looks inspire you to put a festive spin on your usual makeup.
Lily Donaldson’s gunmetal gray eye makeup is the epitome of holiday chic.
Make a singular makeup statement with metallic lipstick (and maybe a hint of mascara). These vintage Urban Decay shades are back in a new creamy formula for a limited time.
When your outfit is the star attraction, a neutral makeup palette of champagne and rosy hues will complement, not compete.
Makeup artists are always telling us blue shadow makes brown eyes pop. Emily Ratajkowski is living proof.
In the dead of winter, fake a healthy flush with makeup artist Troy Surratt’s glow-inducing blushes.
Kate Upton puts her lashes front and center with otherwise barely-there makeup.
Gigi Hadid is pure (rose) gold. Pair sheer washes of shimmer on the face and eyes with a statement coat.
No makeup look is complete without glowing skin. Guerlain’s new complexion correcting pearls impart fresh radiance.
Queen of the cat eye, model Jourdan Dunn, offsets an inky swipe of liner with fluttery lashes and bold brows.
A bright red lip worn with fresh-faced skin is the easiest way to look elegant in seconds.
This cherry-red matte stain can be used on both lips and cheeks for the easiest pop of color.
If glittery eyelids are your goal, follow Ellie Bamber’s lead by leaving skin, lips, and hair minimal.
