Key beauty looks for the holidays

Deck the hauls and dazzle your way into the season with this makeup guide.

Scrambling amid the season of giving is nothing new. Shuttling back and forth to prepare for big group festivities, planning out-of-town trips, and finding the so-called “perfect gift” for your loved ones are never an easy feat. If, like many others, you find yourself at the eleventh hour thinking about the next look to make an entrance at your next Christmas or New Yearʼs Eve party, youʼre right on track.

Deck the hauls and dazzle your way into the season with this makeup guide for the holidays. Fly high and be the twinkle in everyone’s eye with golden wings and glitter, rich-pigmented palettes. Complement strong eyes with iridescent skin and an illuminating glow paired with polished brows in place. And for the daring, choose a pucker that can bring back your color.

Wing It (sharp, golden wings or colored eyeliners)
