The holidays might look a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still get dressed up and celebrate in style. In fact, putting on a festive outfit — with a holiday makeup look to match — might be just what we need to raise our spirits this season.
Here, beauty influencer Maya Galore walks us through a holiday makeup tutorial featuring a warm, bronzy eye and neutral lip that not only compliments the holiday season, but is a perfect go-to look for any occasion.

COMPLEXION RESCUE Hydrating Foundation Stick SPF 25 (Maya’s shade is Cinnamon 10.5)

Shade & Diffuse Eye Brush

How to create a holiday makeup look:
-Maya likes to begin with her eyebrows, to help create a frame for her face. Begin by using the pencil side of BROW MASTER Sculpting Pencil to fill, then flip it over to brush through with the spoolie side.
-Define brow hairs and keep them in place with STRENGTH & LENGTH Serum-Infused Brow Gel.
-To create an even, radiant complexion, swipe COMPLEXION RESCUE Hydrating Foundation Stick SPF 25 onto your face. Then blend using the Smoothing Face Brush.
-Next, conceal under eye circles with the BARESKIN Complete Coverage Serum Concealer. You can also apply the concealer down your nose, above your lip and on your chin to highlight. Blend it all in using the Shade & Diffuse Eye Brush.
-Using the GEN NUDE Eyeshadow Palette in Latte, blend the shade Solstice into your crease with The Blender Brush. Then, pick up the shade Firefly with your fingertip and apply all over your lid. To add depth to your eyeshadow look, blend the shade Spirit into your crease, between where you placed Solstice and Firefly. To finish, place Spirit on your bottom lash line using the small liner side of the Expert Shadow & Liner Brush.
-For extra definition, apply LASTING LINE Long-Wearing Eyeliner in the shade Absolute Black to the outer corners of both your upper and lower lash lines. Using the smudge tip end, blend the liner out to create a cat eye effect.
-Put the finishing touches on your eyes by going back to your eyeshadow palette and blending the shade Solstice all across your lower lash line using the liner side of the Expert Shadow & Liner Brush. Then, apply LASHTOPIA Mega Volume Mineral-Based Mascara.
-Next, apply BOUNCE & BLUR Powder Blush in shade Mauve Sunrise to the apples of your cheeks. This formula is fingertip friendly, so you can build it up to your desired intensity.
-Finish this holiday makeup look with MINERALIST Hydra-Smoothing Lipstick in the shade Memory, a beautiful neutral rose.
