The most interesting part of makeup this season is that it seemed to be more subtle than the clothing that graced the runway. However, we found some more unusual makeup trends that may get you noticed at any holiday party based on some more adventurous looks from the runway.
Colored Mascara and liner matches with bright lips was popular on the runways with metallic eyeshadow. I love this look and it seems so punk that I have to say it is the ultimate holiday look. To strip down this look, either skip the matching eyeliner or use a mono-colored lipstick. Although, if you are a true punk, this look is your idea of an extreme holiday look. For rockers, try pairing black mascara and silver eyeshadow with a gold liner or a gold liner with gold mascara and a nude eyeshadow. This look came straight from Dior.
Dramatic eyes with a nude face is the best look for classic wearers. Replace the color with metallic colors and you have the perfect holiday look. It is important to wear mascara the same color as your lashes so it does not over-power the metallic eyeshadow.
Neutral metallic with nude gloss is a great look for casual dressers because it is not over the top but still adds a hint of glamor. The gloss is just a hint of color but closer to a neutral. Remember to choose a metallic that is close to your natural skin i.e for darker skin choose a bronze color.
Tune in on Friday for glam, and vintage romance holiday makeup.
