3 Looks for Festive Holiday Makeup

Can you hear that? Sounds like jingle bells! And champagne corks popping, carols being sung, and laughter and joy. To celebrate this festive time of year, we like to add a little sparkle and drama to our makeup. Here are three distinct holiday looks from some of our favourite clean and green makeup brands.

The Look: Holiday Party Festive
A smoky eye in a pretty nutmeg shade takes centre stage. Play it down with a neutral rose lip, or amp up the drama with a holiday-ready red.

Look By: Vapour Beauty

Get the Look:

  • Using the Vapour Eyeshadow Quad in Archetype, blend the shade Nutmeg from the across the lid and into the crease and a little into the lower lashline. Vapour pro tip: Soften your pressure as you blend higher into the socket line. The shadow should remain the darkest at the lashline and slowly fade out.
  • On lips apply Vapour Lip Nectar in Tempt, or up the drama with Vapour High Voltage Lipstick in Blaze or Primal
  • Apply a couple of coats of Vapour Mesmerizing Mascara to lashes


The Look: Festive Candy Red Lips
A fun, holiday look for Christmas markets, tree-lighting ceremonies, and meeting friends for drinks.

Look By: Ilia Beauty

Get the Look:

  • Skin: prep skin and apply a hydrating cream. Wait a few moments before applying concealer.
  • Add a touch of concealer to spots, under eyes, around nose, wherever there’s redness or darkness. Blend well. 
  • Blend a touch of Ilia Beauty Multi-Stick in At Last over cheeks.
  • Apply Ilia Beauty Illuminator in Cosmic Dancer to eyelids and cheekbones.
  • Trace lips with Ilia Beauty Satin Cream Lip Crayon in Push It and blend to soften around lip line.
  • Apply Olio E Osso Balm #3, a wash of crimson, to top off colour and keep lips hydrated.


The Look: New Year’s Eve Gold Rush
This is the one time of year to go big or go home – time to break out the big ones: the more gold and glittery the better.

Look By: Aether Beauty

Get the Look:

  • All shadows mentioned below are from the Aether Beauty Crystal Grid Gemstone Palette.
  • Start with the shade ‘Amber’ and apply all over the eyelid creating a sharp outer line.
  • Along the lower lash line, use the shade ‘Vibration’.
  • In the inner corner of eyes, dust the shade ‘Moonlight’.
  • For added drama and definition, apply ‘Intuition’ or ‘Recharge’ from the palette with a thin angled brush on upper or lower lash lines.
  • For highlighter, try ‘Moonlight’, ‘Diamond’ or ‘Topaz’ from the palette along the cheekbones.
