If you are already in the party mood and can’t wait to dazzle everyone with your holiday makeup, we have a bunch of cool beauty trends that you can try out. From glitter lips to jazzy hair accessories, here are five of the hottest beauty trends of the year that you can sport this Christmas Eve and show off with an Instagram selfie later (wink). Take a look.

If you are an eye makeup person, give the winged eyeshadow trend a try. It is insanely easy to achieve, stunning and is sure to grab all the attention towards you at the Christmas party. For the festive feel, stick with Christmas colours like white, red or green and play up your eyeshadow with shimmer. Take your pick from cat-eye or elongated wing and pull it off like a pro.

 

Glitter lips

Statement lip got a whole new meaning this season, courtesy shimmer. It’s one trend that lets you rock your go-to red lip colour but with a shimmery sheen that takes your look a notch up. All you need for holiday glam is a red lip colour, some glitter and, of course, a Christmas party invitation to rock this gorgeous look.

 

Barrettes and clips
