Tips to Glitz Up Yourself for the Holidays

November 18, 2016

This year, holiday party looks will be an interesting combination of sparkle and understatement. Remember that adage, “less is best”? Well, it’s certainly true this year, but with a twist…of course. Make up, hair, and nails will be all about natural but better, postmodern classic, and downright retro.

Hairstyles are simple but glamorous. Loose, romantic up do’s as well as classic, streamline twists and buns are topped off with a bit of hair bling. Even short styles are sparkling with bejeweled pins and clips, or a floral spray. The best part is that this makes it easy to switch up your look this year when you have more than one party on your calendar.

To go along with the theme, make up is trending toward the natural and neutral with either an eye-catching lip or an updated smoky eye to grab attention. For lips, choose from classic reds or metallics paired with a glowing, neutral face. Those smoky eyes are updated this year with a gunmetal pallet rather than the harsh blacks of previous years. If you prefer, opt instead for super fringe lashes or glittery, disco lids to tap into your inner retro.

Your nail color is where you can wrap it all up. When your outfit is the star of the show, opt for a natural look with flawless shaping. If you’ve gone for a bright lip or glittery eyes, echo it with a metallic flash on your nails. That gunmetal smoky eye will work perfectly with a smoky blue or deep indigo nail color. And of course, the classic red lip calls for a classic red nail, too.
