The holiday season brings many photo-ops with friends and family. Make sure your look is on-point this year with these fab holiday makeup looks and ideas. 

Hello there friends! It looks like our most favorite time of the year has come again! First stop Christmas and next up New Year’s. This is the time of year when family get-togethers, holiday-inspired hangouts with friends, and office holiday parties start to fill your social calendar. I’m sure many of us realize that with these events come many photo-ops! Coming from a family of all girls (my poor dad!), I’ve grown up seeing my mom and sisters getting dolled up to the nines for every holiday party or event. Now that I’m older, I’ve realized that I’ve started to do the same thing myself. So for that reason, I’ve been inspired to write a post on holiday makeup to inspire not just y’all but myself as well! So let’s get started. Shall we?

Holiday Makeup Inspired by the 1950s Holiday Cheer Happy Holidays Look Your Best for the Holiday Season

I personally love this look here! What’s not to adore about the 50s? This fun and fresh look is absolutely perfect for both Christmas and New Year’s! You can’t go wrong with a fun, bold cat eye and soft pink lips! This look is definitely an all-out classic look. If you’re interested in spicing up this look and want to add a festive red lip with your cat eye, feel free to do so! Just be careful to keep your eyes and lips balanced. You don’t want your eye makeup to be overly done with a dramatic lip or else your entire makeup look may become distracting. To get an idea of what a cat eye with a red lip will look like, check out the example below.
