The secret of a perfect make-up for the Christmas holidays? Mia Cosmetics reveals it to you: find out how to create the best makeup for Christmas and New Year!

Gifts ready under the tree, a well-laid table with everything in place, a house decorated and ready to welcome all our guests. The dress is waiting for us to be worn, shoes matched to perfection. What is missing? The trick, of course!

During the Christmas holidays, you can give yourself a little more time, you can spend a few more minutes in front of the mirror, and thus create a sophisticated and refined look. And if red lipstick is a must have for the Christmas holidays, there are also many other tricks.

There are those who prefer to focus on the lips and those who focus on more evident eye makeup, but it is possible to draw guidelines for all tastes.

On New Year’s Eve you can avoid red lipstick and choose a nude that is accompanied by a more intense eye make-up, characterized by a thick and marked line of eyeliner.

So here is a mini guide to making the best make-up for the holidays, to show off both at Christmas and New Year’s parties.

Christmas Make Up: black eyes and red lips

Classic, but fascinating. This is how we present ourselves on the most important party of the year. Focus on the lips, choosing a beautiful shade of red, with a bright and lively nuance, such as lacquer, purple or ruby red.

The flashy lips can be combined with simpler, nude eye makeup if you don’t like colored eyeshadows, but without forgetting black eyeliner. Pay attention to the final tail: it must be perfect! Within the eye, blend the golden highlighter and, for an even more intense look, apply the false eyelashes.

Christmas Smokey Eyes: Play Of Lights And Shadows

Smokey eyes never go out of style, not even at Christmas. To create an elegant eye make-up that focuses entirely on the eyes, the advice is to blend the eyeshadow well on the eyelid.

Which colors to focus on? This make-up can be created in a wide range of chromatic shades: the most classic remains black, but alternatively you can use gray, anthracite, brown, green or burgundy. The important thing is that it is a dark color that gives intensity to the look.

Dark and bright lipstick, for lips that do not go unnoticed

Dark lipstick is one of the must haves of the holiday season. The most used shades range from deep red to purple, passing through burgundy and shades of intense mauve. Avoid matte colors: for the holidays, lips must shine and immediately catch the attention, covered with a gloss or shimmering glitter.

Colorful make-up for New Year’s Eve: who dares wins

Make up shows your personality. We can, therefore, decide to stay on the classic Christmas shades of bronze and gold, reviving them, however, with a touch of color. A purple eyeliner will be perfect! Not only that: colors such as green, pink or purple can be blended with neutral shades and can be combined with the colors of the dress worn or with those of an accessory that enhances the look.

New Year Make Up: Glitter On The Lids For A Wow Effect

During the New Year’s Eve, the watchword is only one: shine. Holidays are the best occasion to proudly show off metallic and glitter eyeshadows. The time has come to dare and indulge in a beautiful super bright make-up!

How to do light eye makeup for the holidays

A natural make-up is perfect for any occasion and is the most suitable for those with blue or otherwise clear eyes in general. In this case it is necessary to focus a lot on the base and create a uniform and imperfection-free complexion. How to do? Using the facial contouring technique, applying a natural tone lipstick, keeping light on the eye makeup and adding a generous dose of mascara and illuminator.

How to do dark eye makeup for the holidays

Those with dark eyes can range on every shade, without fear of getting a result that is too forced or in contrast with their eye or hair color. You can opt for natural tones, warm colors or cool colors. In this case, you can dare with very intense shades, which give depth to the look, trying to match the eye makeup to the color of the chosen dress.
