Party Like It’s 2022 With Holiday Makeup Looks
Whether you’re headed to a fab holiday gathering, a family dinner or a wine night with friends, the holiday season is the PERFECT time to liven up your makeup look and add some extra glam.
One of the best things about the holidays is that the celebrations last a whole season! That means you have time to experiment with different colors and trends from mid-November through the new year. Try a variety of popular 2022 makeup looks and see what makes you feel excited and confident. 💜
Our Holiday Style Watch
You’ve probably noticed 2022 fashion trends for the holidays are all about glitter and shine. From black sequined mini dresses to satin with metallic fringe, everyone is finding a way to fit a little sparkle in their look.
But, we’re seeing more than the classic black or silver glam. Instead, trendsetters are using the classic with a twist and opting for vibrant jewel tones. Think deep purple, emerald and dark royal blue. You’ll surely make a statement at all your events with shiny fabric and a little sparkle on top.
Of course, your 2022 holiday fashion isn’t complete without the perfect makeup to complement it!
Find Your Favorite 2022 Holiday Makeup Look
Once you pick the perfect holiday outfit for an occasion, it’s time to consider the right makeup to help you pull off your 2022 holiday styles. Finding the right seasonal makeup to try can be overwhelming. There are just so many options! From cherry red lips and candy cane-striped eyeshadow to an all-out metallic eye look, perfect for a shiny New Year’s countdown, you can take your look in many routes. ✨
We LOVE finding new ways to recreate classic makeup looks. That’s why our favorite holiday makeup takes something you’ve always loved and puts a modern twist on it.
Five Holiday Makeup Looks to Rock this Season
No matter the occasion, we’ve got a makeup idea for your end-of-year celebrations!
Here are five holiday looks you MUST try:
Glitter glam is one of the BEST parts of holiday party makeup. In the past you may have gone a little crazy with a little glitter everywhere, adding it to your highlighter, eyeliner, shadow and maybe even lips. This winter we’re loving the more refined glitter looks.
Using subtle hints of glitter to frame and shape your best features, such as your eyes, is a great way to give a nod to the trend while making it more refined. To ramp up the subtle glam, use rhinestones and gems that frame and accentuate your eyes,
Pair a glitter eye with lash extensions (for any occasion!) for the ultimate holiday glam. At The Lash Lounge, after your first full set, we recommend getting a refill every two weeks for max fullness, which means your lash extensions will get you through ALL your holiday gatherings!
2. Brick lips
Of course, it’s not the holidays without classic red lips. For 2022’s take on the red lip, we’re seeing a brick lip (a darker and more neutral red).
From a matte lip to a shiny gloss, find a shade you love and rock it all season long! 💄
3. Bold eyeliner
Just because the seasons are changing doesn’t mean the graphic eyeliner trend is going away! If anything, it’s growing in versatility and is here to stay. Try a graphic cat eye filled in with your favorite eye shadow!
This winter we’re also seeing bold heavy under-eye liner. For a holiday interpretation of this look, use deep green fir-colored liner or jewel tones. These colors are all the rage for holiday eye makeup in 2022.
To contrast your bold liner, get a lash lift with a lash tint and you’ll have perfectly curled and lashes with a beautiful hue for up to four weeks. This maintenance-free look simply emphasizes your natural beauty to keep your lashes looking full and long.
Better yet, get your eyebrows tinted, too! Having brows that seamlessly complement your lifted and tinted lashes will make your pre-party glam routine a breeze.
4. Blush strobing
Big and rosy blush has been a trend for most of 2022, and those rosy romantic tones are here to stay for the holidays, as well. For soft creamy skin that will last throughout your holiday party, use a cream blush high on the cheekbones and below the eyes. Finish the bright, fresh look by blending with a bright concealer to get rid of any dark circles or dull complexions.
5. Subtle smoky eye
2022 holiday makeup trends are all about taking a beloved bold look and putting a neutral twist on it by not going all the way to the brow bone and using a lighter grey.
We’re OBSESSED with the modern take on this classic eye makeup and think the lighter-toned smoky hues make this trend seamlessly move with you from your afternoon to evening holiday events.
What Holiday Makeup Looks Will You Try?
Can we suggest a glitter-lined lid with classic application eyelash extensions? Because we think you’d look gorgeous!
It’s not holiday fashion if it doesn’t make you feel a little magical. For your makeup, try different colors, glitters and even mesh the trends. Romantic blush strobing with a light grey smoky eye could be *chef’s kiss*. 😘
