Two Holiday Party Looks for All Your Festivities This Season

BEAUTY

The holidays inevitably mean you’ll be attending holiday parties — lots of them. Whether you’re heading to an office party or festivities with friends, you’ll want to look your best, and might add a little something to elevate your usual look: a bit of smokiness here, a little sparkle there. For all your holiday makeup needs, we have celebrity makeup artist and highlighter queen Nam Vo (@namvo) doling out expert advice. Here, we’ll show you how she uses some of our clean beauty favorites to create two gorgeous holiday makeup looks: day-to-night work party makeup, and a festive red lip with a golden eye. Follow along and get ready to put your best face forward this holiday season.

Work Party Makeup Look

To create this work holiday party makeup look, Nam used:

BARESKIN Complete Coverage Serum Concealer (Greta uses shade Fair)
BOUNCE & BLUR Eyeshadow Palette in Dawn
Expert Shadow & Liner Brush
Complexion Perfector Brush
LASH DOMINATION Ink Liner
LOVE EVERY LASH Micro Defining Mascara
ENDLESS GLOW Highlighter in shade Joy
Blooming Blush Brush
GEN NUDE Powder Blush in shade That Peach Tho
ENDLESS SUMMER Bronzer in shade Faux Tan
Diffused Highlight Brush
BAREPRO Longwear Lipstick in shade Raspberry
ENDLESS GLOW Highlighter in shade Whimsy
MINERAL VEIL Finishing Powder

To get the look:

  • Prep eyes for shadow with BARESKIN Complete Coverage Serum Concealer.
  • Using the Expert Shadow & Liner Brush, sweep the shade Pink Cloud from the BOUNCE & BLUR Eyeshadow Palette all over your eyelid. Next, blend Misty Morning into crease of your eye with The Blender Brush. To finish the shadow, apply shade Hazy Taupe on outer corners with the Expert Shadow & Liner Brush.
  • To create an “eye lift” effect, sweep concealer from the outer corners of your eyes using the Complexion Perfector Brush
  • Define your eyes by using LASH DOMINATION Ink Liner in Intense Black on the upper lash line and LOVE EVERY LASH Micro Defining Mascara on your lashes.
  • To create a glowy flush, apply ENDLESS GLOW Highlighter in shade Joy to the apples of the cheeks with the Blooming Blush Brush.
  • Conceal under eyes with the same BARESKIN Concealer and the Complexion Perfector Brush.
  • Next, add GEN NUDE Powder Blush in shade That Peach Tho with the Blooming Blush Brush.
  • Add natural-looking color by using the Diffused Highlight Brush to sweep ENDLESS SUMMER Bronzer in shade Faux Tan along under the cheekbone and jawline.
  • Using your finger, dab on BAREPRO Longwear Lipstick in Raspberry.
  • Highlight your face by applying ENDLESS GLOW Highlighter in shade Whimsy down the center of your nose and along your cupid’s bow with your finger, then along the tops of your cheekbones with the Diffused Highlighter Brush.
  • For a bit more drama (taking this from a day at the office to a night out, for example) add a wing to the eyeliner look.
  • To complete the look, sweep the MINERAL VEIL Finishing Powder over your face’s “hot spots” (forehead, sides of nose, chin) with the Diffused Highlighter Brush. The small brush will allow you to control oil as needed, without covering your dewy highlighter.

Festive Makeup Look

To create this festive holiday party makeup look, Nam used:

GEN NUDE Eyeshadow Palette in Copper
Expert Shadow & Liner Brush
Blender Brush
BARESKIN Complete Coverage Serum Concealer
Complexion Perfector Brush
LASH DOMINATION Ink Liner
LASHTOPIA Mega Volume Mineral-Based Mascara
ORIGINAL Loose Mineral Foundation (Eloise wears shade Tan Nude)
Diffused Highlight Brush
ENDLESS GLOW Highlighter in shade Fierce
GEN NUDE Powder Blush in shade Pink Me Up

GEN NUGE Under Over Lip Liner in shade On Point
GEN NUDE Patent Lip Lacquer in shade Hype

To get the look:

  • Next, blend the shade Bonfire into your crease, layering it over Trippin’. Then, apply shade Bonfire to your lower lash line using the Expert Shadow & Liner Brush.
  • For a pop of rose gold shimmer, tap the shade Aura onto the inner corner of your eyelid using your finger.
  • Apply BARESKIN Complete Coverage Serum Concealer under the eyes with the Complexion Perfector Brush.
  • Create winged eyeliner with LASH DOMINATION Ink Liner. Use small, controlled strokes to build up the shape. Finish the eyes with a coat of LASHTOPIA Mega Volume Mineral-Based Mascara.
  • Mattify any oily spots using ORIGINAL Loose Mineral Foundation with the Diffused Highlighter Brush.
  • Add some glow by first sweeping on ENDLESS GLOW Highlighter in shade Fierce with the Diffused Highlighter Brush on the high points of your cheekbones, then applying GEN NUDE Powder Brush in shade Pink Me Up to the apples of your cheeks with the Blooming Blush Brush.
  • Line your lips with GEN NUGE UNDER OVER Lip Liner in shade On Point, then apply GEN NUDE Patent Lip Lacquer in shade Hype for a rosy, glossy finish.
