Now that Christmas Eve and Day are fast approaching, you’ve probably started thinking about the beauty look you want to go for. We might not be heading out anywhere further than our living rooms this year, but we think that’s actually the perfect opportunity to try something completely new. Plus, if you’ve got a Zoom call planned throughout the holidays, you’ll need a look that stands out on camera. So, to help you choose, we picked seven festive beauty looks we’re loving at the moment…

1. A bold lip and kohl eyeliner

If you’re thinking of going for a bold and shimmering dark red lip, the perfect counterpart to complement that right now is a soft kohl liner around the eye. For a more dramatic, feline effect, make sure you line all around the eyes, all the way into the inner corners. Complete the look by tying your hair back and going for some extra bushy brows to make it really stand out.

2. Green glitter eyeshadow

Glitter eyeshadow is a festive staple, but for 2020 we’re going green. Opt for an ultra-pigmented glitter and apply it in a ’70s-inspired cat-eye shape. Then, keep the rest of the look simple with strong brows, lots of bronzer and a soft pink lipgloss. Gold jewellery and hair accessories will round it all off, making sure you look as glam as can be.

3. Starry eyes

You don’t have to commit to covering your entire eyelids in stars as with this runway beauty look, but sparkly stars are still a great way to make your look feel a lot more festive. To tone it down, we would go for silver or gold eyeshadow with some stars applied to the inner or outer corner of the eye. It’s a great nod to the Euphoria makeup trend of 2020, but with a festive twist.

4. The classic red lip

Sticking to the classic red lip? Then take it into 2020 by adding a bushy brow and loads of blush in the same tone as your lipstick to the mix. Keep the eyes simple with just a hint of brown eyeshadow and a few coats of mascara and finish the look with some cleverly placed highlighter.

5. Brown liner

Brown eyeliner has been trending all year, offering a new take on the classic black liquid liner we all know and love. If you haven’t tried it yet, this is your perfect opportunity to finally give it a go. All you need is some brown eyeshadow and an angled brush to draw a line that softly blends out towards the end. If brown isn’t your thing, any other colour of eyeshadow will also work.

6. Soft silver

A subtle silver smokey eye is always a winner when it comes to festive makeup looks. Start with a grey base on the whole eyelid, then dab some silver onto it and finish with a coat of mascara to get this Bella Hadid-approved look right. Some fake freckles and a gemstone here or there will make it feel even more right for now.

7. Full on festive
