Beauty Looks To Get You in a Festive Mood

There's no better time to go all out on the makeup and outfit departments than during the holidays! During this season of merrymaking, parties, and other social events galore, a girl's gotta look one hundred percent every time. We do admit though, that we may have outfit or beauty look fatigue at times—meaning we just run out of ideas and creativity and usually just end up wearing the next best comfortable thing. We offer a bit of inspiration when it comes to the makeup department, and serve some pretty celebrity looks for you to try for your next fete! We round up three of our favorite celebrity makeup artist creations, so you too can look like a star! 

1. Makeup by Ariel for Shay Mitchell

We already know Shay Mitchell looks stunning, but she looks particularly glowing in this red-orange lip look! See how perfectly contrasted it is against her tan skin, which we might add can work for our morena skin! Win-win!

2. Pat McGrath for Alexis Jay

We imagine this look for a holiday night out or on New Year's Eve itself—flawlessly executed purple eyeshadow paired with a creamy nude lip! Don't limit yourself to just purple though! Explore other options like royal blue, hot pink, or fiery orange!

3. Hung Vanngo for Selena Gomez

Hung is known for painting the faces of Hollywood's A-list (his clients include Karlie Kloss, Emily Ratajkowski, and Kaia Gerber), but we particularly love this standout look he did for Selena Gomez. A fresh take on the smoky eye is to use metallic eyeshadow and let it stand out by pairing it with a subdued face.
