Stepwise Holiday Makeup Look  

Here’s a stepwise holiday makeup look to accentuate your features – 

• Step 1: Create A Dewy Base 

Cleanse your face thoroughly and apply a lightweight moisturiser suitable for your skin type. Allow it to absorb completely before moving on to your face makeup. Use a hydrating primer to create a smooth canvas for your Holiday makeup application. Opt for a lightweight, dewy foundation or a skin tint to even out your skin tone. Apply it evenly across your face using a makeup sponge or brush for a natural finish. Go for a foundation shade that matches your skin tone and undertone. You can head to the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool and find your ideal shade in minutes. Next, use a concealer to cover any blemishes or dark circles under your eyes. Choose a formula that provides coverage without looking heavy and blend it seamlessly into your skin. Lock in your base with powder

Pro Tip: A ‘glowy skin’ hack is to blend some highlighter with your fingertips after you apply foundation. Use it on the high points of your face such as the cheekbones, brow bones, bridge of your nose and cupid's bow. This will add for a natural glow to your face. 

• Step 2: Add Colour 

Blush is an absolute essential for your holiday makeup. It is that one product that infuses your complexion with life, colour, and a gorgeous glow, ensuring your look is nothing short of stunning. The winter chills often leave our skin looking a bit dull and that is where the blush steps in to revitalise and brighten it. It also contours and accentuates your cheekbones, giving your face dimension and a lifted appearance while mimicking the natural, healthy radiance of the cold-kissed glow. Using a fluffy brush, apply it on your nose and cheekbones to make you appear more awake, vibrant, and ready to celebrate. Blend it towards your hairline to create a lifted effect. 

• Step 3: Go for Shimmery Eyes 

Take your New Year makeup look a notch higher by opting for shimmery eye makeup. Start by shaping your eyebrows to tie your entire look together. Then, layer your favourite eyeshadow and follow it up with a shimmery eyeshadow to let your holiday makeup appear glamorous. Embrace the festive spirit by using gold, bronze, or deep jewel tones. Use the coloured eyeliner along the lash line to sparkle and dazzle with every blink, turning heads at seasonal gatherings. 

• Step 4: Complete With Kajal and Mascara 

Complete the holiday makeup for your eyes with a defining touch of kajal along the waterline, adding depth and intensity to your gaze. Glide the kajal gently, framing the eyes with sultry allure. Then, coat lashes generously with volumising mascara for dramatic length and curl. Each stroke enhances the glittery eyeshadow, creating a mesmerising, captivating finish. The kajal's depth and the mascara's lushness complement the festive shimmer, accentuating the enchantment of your holiday makeup look. 

• Step 5: Paint Your Pout 

Consider your lips as the canvas of confidence and sophistication. Seal your New Year's makeup with a statement lipstick that echoes the joy of the season! Choose a bold red matte lipstick, a deep berry crayon, or a shiny peach liquid lipstick to complement your festive flair. Whether matte or glossy, let your chosen hue be the exclamation mark to your holiday makeup look. A perfectly painted pout radiating warmth and glamour will leave a lasting impression at every holiday festivity!
