Perfect Party Palettes: The Top Holiday Beauty Trends

Holiday is the time to sparkle and shine – and your makeup should, too. Try out these beauty trends that will surely nab you a beso under the mistletoe or at the stroke of midnight.  Que bonita!

1. Holiday Beauty Trends: Nude

Go Bare

Nude lips will set any look off. Whether you pair it with a smoky eye or go for an au naturale look with perfectly prepped skin, your pout will look beautiful (and bigger!) with a great natural color.

2. Holiday Beauty Trends: Smoky Eye

Metal Works

A metallic, smoky eye will turn everyone’s head. Use a lighter shade for your entire lid and use a bronze, darker shade for the crease and close to the lash line. Finish with a double coat of mascara to add drama.

3. Holiday Beauty Trends: Red Lip

Red Persuasion

A wine or true red lip definitely makes a statement. Line your lips before applying to prevent color bleeding and use a color-lasting formula or stain so you can sip, eat and kiss without leaving your mark!

6. Holiday Beauty Trends: Cat Eye

Winged Cat Eye

Nothing is sexier than a great winged cat-eye look. Use a liquid liner for awesome precision and extend the line out past your lashline. (Mess up? Don’t sweat it! Grab a Q-tip and eye makeup remover to clean up the line without starting over.)

7. Holiday Beauty Trends: Highlighter


Get glowing with luminescent highlights. Use your highlighter under the brow and on your cheekbones for a sheer, dewy finish that will make your skin look fab. Finish with a pearly gloss for even more shine.
