Recently we’ve officially entered Party Season. This time of the year not only brings cold, snow, and Santa Claus, but it also brings family dinners, company parties, and gatherings with friends. Wherever you’re heading to this December, your makeup needs to be on point, right? From shimmery lids to vampy lips, we’ve found a holiday makeup look for you.

Get inspired and learn how to achieve some of these 25 gorgeous looks. They will definitely get you in the Christmassy mood. Enjoy!

This purple smokey eye with a pop of shimmering glitter is the ideal look for any festive occasion.  Shades of brown and purple look flattering on just about everyone, so make sure to give this look a try!

December is the perfect time to pop a little bit of glitter onto your eyes, right? Not only will it brighten up your whole face, but also make your eyes pop. As you can see, you don’t have to go crazy with it – less is more in this case.

2. Golden Smokey Eye and Red Lips

Nothing says “holiday makeup” quite like golden smokey eye and red lips. The look is perfect for a last minute holiday event.

Step 1: Start by applying an eyeshadow primer or concealer and let it dry.

Step 2: Next apply a neutral base eyeshadow all over your eyelid (this step will make the blending easier). Dip the tip of your favorite blending brush into a dark chocolate, matte eyeshadow and apply it to the outer corner of the eye in a “V” shape. Blend!

Step 3: Using a tapping motion, apply a dark gold eyeshadow (ABH;Amber) on your eyelid. Top it with a baked gold eyeshadow (ABH;Peach Sorbet).

Step 4: Highlight the inner corner of the eye with a shimmery champagne shade. Smoke out the lower lash line using the chocolate shade from the step #2.

Step 5: Complete the look with a black liner, false lashes and red matte lipstick.

3. Grey Smokey Eye with Glitter Liner

Step 1: Prime your eyelids with an eye primer or concealer. Trick for a smooth bottom edge: Take a piece of Scotch tape, press it to your hand a few times to make it less sticky and place it as pictured. Apply a transition color (a peachy/orange shade) to the crease. With a black matte shade, smoke out the top lash line.

Step 2: Apply a dark grey eyeshadow all over your eyelid.

Step 3: Blend with a clean blending brush until there are no harsh lines.

Step 4: Apply a gel liner along the upper lash line.

Step 5: Next apply a silver glitter liner above the black gel liner.

Step 6: Highlight the inner corner of the eye with a silver glitter. Use black liner and black and brown eyeshadows to smoke out the bottom lash line. Apply false lashes.

4. Green and Gold Glitter Look

If a grey smokey eye feels too much for you, try rocking this gorgeous gold and green eye makeup look. Sparkly and glittery shadows like these will add an instant festive feeling to your look. If you have brown eyes, opt for gold, copper, green , and blue shades. Peach, bronze, purple and chocolate brown will make blue eyes pop, while burgundy, plum, pink and cranberry shades will enhance green eyes.

5. Smokey Cut Crease

Holidays are the perfect time to glam-up your beauty routine. A smokey cut crease is always a good option. This makeup technique will make your eyes look bigger and, of course, sexier.

6. Brown Matte Cut Crease

A cut crease doesn’t have to be dramatic – you can create it using soft, brown matte shades as showed above. Pair it with red lips and you’re ready for a family dinner or a holiday party. The look was created using the Too Faced “Chocolate Bar” palette.

7. Brown Smokey Eye + Gold Glitter Liner

Source: @miaumauve

Before holidays, make sure to have at least one glitter liner in your makeup kit. You can use it to create endless makeup looks, plus it’s a fun (and easy) way to add a pop of glitter to your look. Put it along your upper lash line or lower lash line for an instant glam.

8. Green Metallic Look

Step 1: Fill in your brows and add a transition color.

Step 2: Apply a dark brown eyeshadow to the outer corner of the eye in a “V” shape. Blend until there are no harsh lines.

Step 3: Apply a metallic green eyeshadow or pigment over the lid.

Step 4: Then apply black gel liner along your upper lash line and blend the dark brown shade from the step #2 to the crease.

Step 5: Deep out the outer corner of the eye using a smaller brush and black matte eyeshadow.

Step 6: Apply black gel liner to your bottom lash line and smoke it out with black and brown eyeshadows. Finish the look by applying your favorite false lashes.

9. Smokey Bronze Eyes + Dark Lips

During cooler months, you might find yourself reaching for your darker lipsticks more often. You’re not alone. Moody reds and purples are our favorite shades during fall and winter. This holiday season, pair your berry lips with a black and dark gold smokey eye for a vampy and sexy look.

10. Gold Glitter Eye

We’re obsessed with this gold glitter look. So, how to make your eyes sparkle like this? You will need two products – eye glitter glue & loose glitter. If you are a glitter lover like us, this type of glue is a MUST in your makeup bag. The product is designed to keep the glitter on the eyes all night long (or until you take it off). Crazy!

If you follow fashion and beauty news, you know the 1990s are back, and so are the bantu knots. The style was a popular 90s look that can be worn on any hair length and any hair type. Whether your hair is natural or relaxed, you can rock this style in two ways –  as is or unraveled into bouncy, full curls (bantu knot out).

25 Bantu Knot Styles

Bantu knots are styled by separating hair into sections, then twisting those individual sections into tiny knots. You can section and twist your hair into small bantu knots for a super curly afro, or opt for the big knots for a huge, fluffy hair.

The best part? Bantu knots are a great protective style since they keep the ends tucked away. In case you need more reasons to try this style – it is super easy to do and costs very little or nothing at all. Here are 25 gorgeous looks that will make you mad for bantu knots. Enjoy!

Heading to a music festival? Festivals and concerts are a great time to ditch your go-to looks and experiment with new styles. Bantu knots will make you stand out, especially if you complete the look with a bold and colorful makeup.

3. Braided Bantu Knots

Try something totally new and turn your braids into medium-sized bantu knots! Elevate your look with hair accessories like sparkly gold chains or cute headbands. Life is too short for boring hair, right?

4. Large Bantu Knots Using Marley Hair

To achieve this look, you need to twist the hair loosely. Use pins to secure the knots and keep them lasting longer. Get creative and put your own twist on this style – make the knots bigger or smaller, twist them, braid them, or add a pop of color… possibilities are endless.

5. Half Up, Half Down Style

Not all women love headbands – they can be too big and colorful or they can damage your hair and cause a headache. The next time you’re craving a headband style, simply section your hair from ear to ear and create 4-5 bantu knots. The knots will keep your hair out of your face in a stylish way.

6. Sisterlocks into Bantu Knots

7. Adorned Bantu Knots

Give your bantu knots a glamorous touch with gold hair cuffs – hair jewelry that can completely transform your look. They will give your knots that extra boost they need.

8. Braids + Bantu Knots Style

Why choose just one protective style when you can combine them? Combine your bantu knots with other protective styles like braids and twists for a funky updo.

Pair two big nail trends together – ombre effect and matte finish – to get this jaw-dropping look. You will need: a base coat, black polish, burgundy polish, makeup sponge and a matte top coat. Apply a generous amount of burgundy nail polish onto the sponge. Apply the black nail polish in the same way, but make sure it slightly overlaps the burgundy shade. Press the sponge on the nail. Repeat the step for each nail. Finish the look with a matte top coat.

15. Black Matte Nails + Gold Studs

These black and gold nails are super-chic and easy to do. Tip: a manicure looks better when nail embellishments are applied to a couple of nails instead of all five. Too many nail embellishments can shift the effect from cool to tacky.

Products used: Kiko Cosmetics in Ink Blue (shade 335), black and white acrylic paint and random shades of dark blue, white and purple.

Step 1: Start with a base color. Use a shade of your choice.

Step 2: Next, lightly sponge on some random darker and lighter blues, purples and white to create the look of a cloudy night sky.

Step 3: Add the moon using white acrylic paint.

Step 4: With black acrylic paint, add a round circle. This is the body of the bat. Keep in mind that we’re adding the fluffy shape in the next step so it’ll get a little bigger.

Step 5: Create a fluffy effect by doing small brush strokes all around the circle.

Step 6: Then create the wings and the eyes.

Step 7: Let it dry and finish with a matte top coat.

Get into the Halloween spirit with these blood-splatter nails. The design looks awesome, plus it’s super easy to do. Apply two coats of white nail polish and let it dry completely. Next, take a plastic plate and put a few drops of a red polish onto the plate. Take a coffee straw and dip it into the red polish on one end. Blow through the straw very quickly to get that desired splatter effect. Repeat the process on the other nails. Finish with a top coat.
