The 8 Unique Christmas Party Makeup That You Will Beautiful + Photos

Christmas Party Makeup: Having fun with Christmas makeup looks is one of the best parts of the season, if you ask us. Second, maybe, to having a mince pie for breakfast.

Getting to go all-out on those shimmery palettes and bold lipsticks is very fun. Whether you’ve decided to treat yourself to one of this year’s Christmas makeup gift sets, or you want to learn how to apply eye shadow like a pro, now’s the time to really lean into the glitter.

“Christmas time is a makeup artist’s dream as it’s the season for full-glam and daring looks,” agrees makeup artist Hayley Walker. “We’re more likely to experiment and be bold, whether trying a new look or wearing a brighter lipstick than we usually would. Metallics, glitter, and shines are always a big look for the festive season.” Hard agree.

Christmas Party Makeup, Here, we round up 8 Christmas makeup looks to inspire your December and beyond. We’ve also included tips on how to wear them and products to get the look, so you can shimmer and shine throughout party season.

1. Sparkly Copper Eye

Christmas Party Makeup, New Year‘s Eve gives it a run for its money, but there’s really no better time for a sparkly eye than Christmas. Metallic tones are an excellent way to make a smoky eye all the more party-appropriate, as seen here on Jessica Chastain in gorgeous copper. If you have blue eyes, this will really make the color pop.

2. The Matte Red Lip

Christmas Party Makeup, Nothing screams Christmas more than a matte red lip, and Tracee Ellis Ross wears it so well. The secret to a bold shade like this is knowing how to apply lipstick with careful prep. Exfoliate first, then line the lips with precision and blot to stop it from smudging.

3. Merry Berry

Christmas Party Makeup, If you want to try a twist on the red lip, use a deeper berry red shade like Davina McCall has here. Darker reds have a more wintery vibe and, if you pick one with more of a sheen finish it’ll be more flattering than, say, classic matte scarlet – making fine lips look fuller.

4. Golden Wonder


Christmas Party Makeup, Jodie Turner-Smith never shies away from a bold make-up look, and she pulls off this stiriking style with ease. The warmth of the gold really works with her skin tone, and we love the combination of a few different golds, as well as darker liner for an impactful, full-blown festive look.

5. Sapphire Shimmer


Christmas Party Makeup, This wonderful blue shimmery eye is a perfect choice of eyeshadow for brown eyes and really makes Thandiwe Newton’s eye colour stand out. It’s easy to recreate at home using a single bold shadow and a blending brush, just be careful to apply your makeup in the right order.

“If you’re going for a bold eye look, the risk of fallout is greater than normal,” advises makeup artist Saffron Hughes. “Apply your face makeup after your eye makeup to decrease the chance of the dreaded ‘raccoon eyes’, where pigment has fallen underneath your eyes.”



Christmas Party Makeup, We wouldn’t normally pick Kate Moss as one of the go-to inspirations for Christmas makeup looks – her vibe is normally quite minimalist, with a touch of kohl. This look though, has us swooning. A glowing, iridescent glitter shimmer, paired with an exaggerated wing. It’s perfectly paired down with a nude lip, to let the eyes really do the talking.



Christmas Party Makeup, Tess Daly looks gorgeous with this emerald eyeliner look paired with the best false eyelashes for a fluttery effect. This deep green shade means the focus is on the eyes, so pairing it with a nude lip keeps it wearable as well as letting this gorgeous color speak for itself.

“Pulling off a bold color on the eye is usually about decluttering the details and avoiding the complicated shading,” says MAC’s head of artistry Terry Barber “A block of one color teamed with a good coat of mascara is usually sufficient to add the drama without resorting to looking clownish.”



Christmas Party Makeup, Viola Davis loves a bold eye look – really, this entire article could have been written about her. This shimmery lilac eye pipped the others to the post as the ideal Christmas makeup look. It’s fun and festive but still feels quite wearable and grown-up. We love how she’s kept things monotone by adding a purple-toned lipstick – it all really works together.
