A traditional Christmas look incorporates everything we love about the holiday period: a touch of magic, a sprinkle of good joy and a great big handful of glitter! Whether you’re looking to create a Christmassy look for a party, a night on the town or for Christmas day itself, we’ve got the low-down for every part of the look.

Think cheesy Christmas jumpers teamed with fluffy Santa hats, Victorian hairstyles with a little extra oomph, bright colours on your clothes and for your make-up, but most importantly, a whole lot of glamour.

The make-up method

The traditional Christmas make-up look is all about having fun with your products. For those who can feel a little intimidated by bright colours, Julia Graf has put together a brilliant video for an evergreen look.

The bright colours blend well with the glitter to give the make-up a deeper, more developed appearance. The combination of the two also work to make the eyes pop and are sure to compliment a whole range of skin tones.

This particular make-up combination is suitable for day or night time events and with a variety of hairstyles. Thick curls or ringlets will work well with the look for night time looks, while daytime would look brilliant with a top knot or bun.

The products

A highly pigmented eye-shadow will work well for this look, but for something with a little more edge that will last a lot longer, stage make-up will have a much brighter finish.

products

Red and green are the traditional Christmas colours and adding a touch of red glitter to small features on the face will help to give the look an extra touch of magic. Green grease paint will work especially well for those wearing the make-up whilst out on the town, while choosing even brighter neon green face paint is sure to make the look truly stand out from the crowd.

The alternative looks

There are plenty of fun ways to change this look according to your favourite Christmas colours. Just remember: the brighter, the better!

look one

This neon make-up manages to be both understated and astonishing as the eyes and lips gently draw attention to the most flattering areas of the face. The pink works incredibly well with the green, while the lips are beautifully bright.

look two

If you fancy yourself as Santa’s little helper this year, this look is as fun as it is well-executed. The lips are the perfect shade of red to really stand out, while a touch of silver or green glitter would really finish off the design around the eyes.

look three

A little more Gothic but not less festive, this look is inspired by the traditional elf design but uses defined eye-liner to add an extra edge. The false eyelashes have brought attention to the design and the darker colours have created the ideal night-time Christmas look.
