Whether you’re a glam wedding guest hoping to step up your make-up regime for a fabulously festive wedding, or a blushing bride in need of Christmas beauty inspiration, check out some of the ways to create an alluring seasonal look.

1. Add a deep red lipstick

Obviously this is a classic go-to make-up look, but try updating the Christmassy red shade with a deep port colour like this rich and earthy crimson tone.

2. Or an ombré lip if you’re feeling adventurous

Clearly one for adventurous wedding guests, an ombré lip requires application in a dabbing motion. Try using a pencil to make it a little easier and keep the rest of the look pared down.

3. Intense black liquid liner

Make a dark, dramatic statement with deep black liquid liner to intensify eye make-up. Finish with a slick of glossy black mascara. The Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner (link to:http://www.eyeko.com/eyeko-skinny-liquid-eyeliner) is a failsafe, long-lasting precision liner for feline eyes.

4. Highlighter


Amplify gorgeous glowing skin with subtle highlighter on cheekbones. Try the NARS multi-purpose stick named The Multiple, in Copacabana to blend a soft festive shimmer and contour.

5. Bold brows

When tans are hard to come by and winter means you can amp up your make-up, bold brows help to frame the face and add a different dynamic. Shape and define brows with a palette such as this Kiko version.

6. Smoke it out

Create a smoky eye with a soft grey or brown eyeshadow palette. You can even add a tiny (and we mean tiny) dusting of delicate glitter if you really want to go all-out as a glam Christmas wedding guest. Finish with a row of soft false lashes for a wide-eyed effect. Which brings us to our next point…

7. Bold lashes

Big lashes are a guaranteed way to add the final touch to a doe-eyed make-up look – pretty for brides and guests alike. Go natural if you’re worried about over-doing it and always carry some lash glue to avoid getting caught out on the dancefloor. Or try individual lash strips for a wispy flutter.
