Makeup is a huge part of our lives. We use it to cover up blemishes, add color, and make us look more youthful. And if you’re like me, makeup also helps me feel confident and more assertive. But what can make the difference between a good look and an amazing one? It all depends on how you apply that makeup! So today we’re going to break down Christmas and makeup looks for Halloween and also some basic steps you can follow to improve your skills in applying makeup so that your face looks as perfect as possible when leaving the house each morning or night.
What Are the Types of Makeup Looks?
There are many types of makeup looks. Some are more simple, while others can be quite elaborate. The following guide will help you understand the different types and how they work:
- Full glam makeup: A full-glam look involves heavy eye shadow and blush, as well as lots of mascara, lipstick, and eyeliner (and maybe even false lashes). This type of look is great if you want to dress up your face but still want some natural color in your eyes and lips.
- Natural makeup: Some people enjoy this makeup because it gives them a natural look while yet giving off an air-brushed effect—they feel like they’re wearing just enough foundation or powder so nothing seems false or exaggerated. To achieve this look at home using only what’s available at home depot would require minimal effort, but other ways can make it easier, such as purchasing professional products online from companies like Sephora, where many items come with free shipping, making them very affordable compared to buying new items every time we need something new for our daily lives, like cleaning supplies, etc.
How Do You Know What Makeup Looks Good on You?
If you’re unsure about what makeup looks good on you, here are some things to consider:
- Do you wear foundation? If so, what kind? Is it matte or shimmery? Does it match your skin tone exactly or is it something in between (like light-medium)?
- Are there any other products used in the look that stand out more than the foundation (for example bronzer/contour powder)?
- Does the overall look make sense with your face shape and coloring (e.g., if there are too many shadows on an angular face, they will emphasize its angles rather than soften them)?
Christmas Makeup Looks
Feel like you’re ready for Christmas with these makeup looks for the holidays.
#1. Wine Lips
As the name implies, this look is perfect for a night out on the town. To create this look, you’ll need:
- Red lipstick with a matte finish (a liquid lipstick will make your makeup look more natural).
- A lip liner pencil or brush to smooth out your lips before applying the color.
- The right amount of gloss on top of the lip color.
#2. Glitter Wings
This style adds shine to the eyes. Apply glitter eyeliner to your upper lid and blend with a cotton swab. Before you put blush or bronzer on your cheekbones, apply mascara in both directions, with an extra coat on the bottom lashes. Make sure to apply these products evenly so there are no bare spots. Next, apply lipstick. If it’s too subtle, use lip balm. Add sparkly eye shadow beneath each eye and blush over each cheekbone; remember, not all makeup needs to be obvious…the trick is choosing how much drama works best for the Christmas look you desire.
#3. Emerald Eyes
This look is a good example of how to use your eyeshadow as a main focal point with neutral tones. You can easily build up the intensity of this eye makeup by using bold shades or adding some glitter to it. The key is to make sure that you have enough contrast between your foundation and the rest of your face so that you don’t end up looking washed out when wearing this costume-inspired look.
This look also emphasizes the importance of using your brows—but not in the way most people think! For more definition and definition at home (and less time spent doing it), use an angled brush like this one from Stila Cosmetics instead; it will pick up the product much faster than just doing it by hand.
#4. Holiday Glam
The fourth look is a holiday glam look. This makeup look combines the best of both worlds: bright and bold colors with a hint of shimmer. To accomplish this look, you can use red lipstick to add an extra punch, or you can use some highlighter on your cheekbones and browbones for an added glow. If you’re feeling more daring than usual this Christmas season, try out some bronzer as well.
If you’re looking for something more subtle (and less intense), try wearing shimmery blush over your cheeks instead of bronzer—it’ll give off just as much radiance without being too overpowering.
How Do You Get Flawless Makeup?
- Use a primer: A good primer will help your foundation last longer and keep it from creasing, but it’s not necessary for all skin types. If you have oily or combination skin, though, using a primer is an absolute necessity.
- Use setting spray: Setting sprays work the same way as primers do—they’re meant to keep makeup in place on your face while you’re out in the heat—but they can also help prevent any oiliness or flakiness by locking everything into place so there is no chance of transferring onto other parts of your face throughout the day (or evening).
- Powder away shine before applying foundation with loose powder or translucent powder; this prevents any unwanted shine from being transferred onto the rest of your look when done properly (and without clumps).
Do You Put Concealer First or Foundation First?
How you apply makeup is a personal preference, but there are some general rules to follow. For example, if you want a clean look with no powder or glitter in your eyeshadow and concealer on top of the foundation and blush, it’s best to start by adding the concealer first. Concealer is thicker than foundation, covering more area and feeling more like a cream than a liquid, so it requires less effort to apply than trying to blend out your contours with liquid products.
When applying foundation, though (or any other type of skincare product), start by applying a thin layer all over your skin before going lighter or heavier depending on what shade looks best for you! “Foundation tends to not only smooth out wrinkles but also give us confidence when we feel confident about our appearance.”
Makeup looks for Halloween
Halloween is the time to be creative, and this is especially true when it comes to makeup. While there are a million different ways to wear it and styles that you can use, there are still some classic looks that will never go out of style. We have compiled three of our favorite Halloween makeup looks for you to try out this year:
#1. Bridgerton Halloween Makeup
The first look is a classic, easy-to-wear smoky eye with a bold lip. Begin by applying your favorite black eyeliner to the top of your lid and blending it outwards with a light hand. Next, take some orange-red powder from the pan and swirl it into the crease of your lids using an angle brush (or whatever you have on hand).
Now that you’ve created depth in the area where we’ll be adding most of our color later on—the outer corners—it’s time to start building up color around those dark spots! I used Fenty Beauty Proenza Schouler Paint Pot in Black) and apply it along both sides of my eyelid closest to my pupil; this will give me something bright and colorful without being too dramatic or clashing with my neutral base color from the previous steps. You could also use black eyeshadow instead if preferred, but I think these babies are just prettier aesthetically speaking.
#2. ‘60s girl Halloween Makeup Idea
To create this look, you need to use a light foundation and eye shadow. Use red lipstick and red blush as accents.
#3. Candy Corn Halloween Makeup
Candy corn makeup is a great way to go for Halloween. First, you’ll want to use a warm and cool color palette. This can be achieved by using bright red lips or choosing an eye shadow that has a purple undertone (like you would find in blackberry lipstick).
Next, add some glitter to your face and around your eyes for added effect! You could also add some fake blood around your mouth if you feel like being extra creepy this year.
What Do I Need for a Full-Face Makeup Look?
You should have the following to create a full-face look:
- Foundation – Make sure it matches your skin tone. If you’re light, choose a shade that matches up your foundation and concealer. If you’re darker than that, go with something deeper in color.
- Concealer – This is where the magic happens! Use this product to hide blemishes or other imperfections on your face while letting others show through if they do pop up (like during this time). It also helps cover redness caused by allergies or seasonal changes in weather conditions (like hot summer days).
- Powder – This sets everything else so there’s no need for touch-ups throughout the day because it dries on top of everything else. If I apply foundation first, then powder after blush, then repeat after lip gloss/balm, etc. I will still need another layer of powder before going out in public again because otherwise, my makeup would come off throughout the day at work due to its lackluster vibes from being stuck onto only one layer instead of two like usual, which means more chances for accidents and wasted time cleaning up afterward instead of getting back into productive mode ASAP.”
With these tips, you’ll be able to create beautiful makeup looks that last all day long. Keep in mind that there are many different types of makeup looks and it’s best to try one out before committing yourself to a full-faced look. If you want a more natural look, then use concealer first, followed by foundation on top of that (or vice versa). For example, if your skin is oily, then go with lighter foundations or powders such as Ivory or nude colors (but not Pink).
