The one time a year us minimalists transform into maximalists is during the festive holiday season. That holiday spirit gets us in such a cheery mood and the crisp weather gives us a general rosiness that seems to linger long after we’ve stepped in from the cold. It’s also the season when the parties are practically lined up for you: from the end-of-year celebration with your coworkers to a family holiday dinner to an epic New Year’s Eve party to say good-bye to 2019 and hello to a brand new decade.
Yes, 'tis the season for glitter, sequins, sparkles, velvet, and satin, which means we can have fun with our outfits at every occasion and the same goes for your holiday makeup. So we’ve lined up three-holiday makeup looks inspired by the winter season and its festivities. We know you’ve been oh-so-good the whole year, so it’s time to let go and let your natural beauty loose.
Deck the Lips with Red a-bounty
Watch out mistletoe because these lips are waiting for you! As the days get shorter and the nights longer, your skin will find its natural color, which means you can pump up the holiday accents and give your lips a deeper red. Undone Beauty’s Light on Lip
now comes in 6 new shades, including the festive Fine Wine and Red Ruby, that will match your winter skin tone and will tie your look together.
Because the weather outside is frightful, we recommend starting this look with our Under/Over powder
which primes and protects your skin from the elements and the makeup you’ll be applying. Keep this look simple by blending our best-selling Lip to Cheek cream palette
to give your cheeks the natural rosiness that comes from a cold winter chill. It’s charming and fresh. Finish off with your selected Light on Lip shade and build up the color by applying it one more time than you usually do. You’ll be hydrating them as it’s infused with aloe and coconut extract and giving them a winter pop that looks naturally enhanced.
Baby, It’s Cozy Inside
The hope that we get snowed in during the holidays is a dream that our inner child will never let go of, no matter what age we reach. And, a white Christmas is a perfect excuse to stay in and enjoy the presence of those we love most. So, you’ll want a simple Christmas look that will give off the same warmth as the fire you just lit below the chimney.
To achieve cozy and cute Christmas makeup, you need to start by breathing life into those lips. We recommend our Lip Life Balm
as it gently exfoliates the dry skin from your lips and delivers a dose of hydrating shea, rosehip, and jojoba extracts. Then add some warmth with our 3-in-1 eye palette
by highlighting the cheekbones, bridge of your nose, inner corners of your eye and cupid’s bow. You instantly see your face light up and glow like the star on your Christmas tree. The final touch is with your lashes to give them the volume to keep the fire going with every bat of the eye. Try our Laze Lash Glaze mascara
, which now comes in yummy Dark Chocolate and chic Very Black, it’s like a gloss for your lashes and the brush really separates each lash adding volume with each stroke. Your Virginia Pine Christmas tree will be green with envy.
Glitter All the Way
The only way to make the most hyped out day of the year actually be the best day of the year is to hit with all the glitter, shine and smokiness you avoided during the other 364 days of the year. You got a lot to be grateful for and really nothing to be ashamed of because you’ve joined the minimalist beauty force, right here. You know that natural beauty comes from within and a little help from Undone Beauty’s minimalist toolkit. So, this New Year’s Eve, let the holiday glam makeup take over.
It’s a tradition to start the new year with a kiss, so make sure your lips are as smooth as can be. The nubby tip from our Lip Life Balm
not only massages your lips but it also exfoliates so the hydration is delivered deep.
With new bare color collections in gold and neutral, our Curator Palette
is the way to go for those soirée smoky eyes. It’s wet to dry application makes the colors blendable and fully customizable to match that sequin outfit. Once the eyes are as smoky as you desire, bust out our Nonzer, which is the highlighting palette par excellence. Every application will give your skin the glow power of a disco ball. The final touch is for your lashes. Keeping the sparkle vibe going, we love the Light on Holographic mascara
because of its light-reflecting pigments that add dimension and color boost for your lashes.
All that’s left is to make that New Year’s resolution to kick off 2020 with a positive mindset. Put away your grandiose ideas and instead, focus on you and what will help you reveal the real you. Just know that Undone Beauty will always be there to support the natural you and provide you with multi-tasking, multi-benefit solutions year-round.
Happy Holidays to you all!
