Nothing screams festive like a red and gold combo… but why stop at the baubles? We just couldn’t resist creating a makeup look with these Christmassy colours, and take it from us – the end result is the perfect balance of classy and festive. Just what you need for that approaching office party.
1. Clementine crease
Apply a burnt-orange shade from the MUA Eyeshadow Palette in Burning Embers to your crease. Then apply the same colour under your eye, blending across the lower lash line.
2. Red hot and smoky
Now you’ve got your transition colour in place, it’s time to add a red shadow from the Burning Embers palette. Pack the pigment onto your eyelid and blend into the crease to create a smoky effect. Then sweep the product down from the outer corner and blend it along the lower lash line.
TOP TIP: Lift the eyelid upwards to give yourself more space when blending.
3. Gold touch
Time for some sparkle! Apply B. Cassie Lomas Glitter Pigment in Supermodel Sheen to the inner corners of your eyes. Then blend it into both the upper and lower lash lines.
4. Flutter-full lashes
This makeup look needs full lashes. Try Ardell False Lashes Wispies 113 for a fluttery finish. Then blend your real lashes into the falsies with a good mascara – we recommend MUA Eye Define Waterproof Mascara.
5. Merry Kissmas
Time to perfect your pout for those mistletoe moments. Highlight your Cupid’s bow with the B. Cassie Lomas Glitter Pigment in Supermodel Sheen, then fill in your lips with MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in Reckless.
TOP TIP: To ensure your Christmas kisses last all night, blot your lips with the red eyeshadow you used earlier.
