The Only Holiday Makeup Tutorials You’ll Need

The holidays makeup are great for so many reasons — the comfiest fashion, the greatest food, gift giving, and endless, scrumptiously flavored lattes. But the real wintertime winner is makeup. If you’re ready to get festive, here are 12holiday makeup tutorials that’ll get you in a festive mood in no time. Bring out the eggnog!

Generally, holiday makeup follows a specific recipe for glamour greatness. A typical wintertime, holiday-appropriate look goes something like this: a jet black, winged cat eye over a shimmering, all over eyes shadow with a beaming, golden highlight, thick false lashes, and a bold, cool-toned red lip. Whew. That’s a lot of makeup, a lot of time, and a lot of product. But ‘tis the season, right?

This is the universal look for good reason. It looks great on every skin tone, it’s achievable with all drugstore products, and it’s appropriate for every event, from dinner with family to the office party. Also, neutral to cool-toned red lips look great on everyone, and shimmering shadows are just plain fun. If you can master this look, you can pretty much do it all when it comes to makeup. Promise.

Every year, my favorite YouTube beauty vloggers release their holiday glam tutorials. While most adhere to the same formula, it’s nice to see all the subtly different interpretations of this classic look.
