Christ­mas is in the air! And that means a lot more hugs, sur­prise vis­its, and most im­por­tantly, pho­tographs. And we can’t af­ford to look any­thing less than ab­so­lutely glam­orous in those Christ­mas party shots, can we? Here are our favourite looks you can t

Ed­u­cate your­self about the glam­orous looks you could try this Christ­mas to rock them party shots.


If you’re try­ing to sport some­thing dreamy, go for pas­tel pinks with a lit­tle bit of a sheen. Pick a pretty pink eye­shadow of your choice and cou­ple this with a dusty rose lip­stick. Keep a shade sim­i­lar to the for­mer two for your cheeks. A creamy blush with a lit­tle high­lighter can give a fresh, dewy look to your skin. Per­fect for win­ters.


Want to try some­thing a lit­tle frosted? Ap­ply a pure white eye­shadow and sweep a light-handed coat of sil­ver over the lids. Use the sil­ver shim­mer to high­light the arches of the brows too. Line both the eye­lids with jet black liner. Con­trast the eyes with a lip­stick in deep mocha. You’ll be sure to turn heads with this unique look.


We couldn’t go through a list of looks with­out a trib­ute to the Christ­mas favourite pine tree, could we? And it’s such an el­e­gant colour to sport at those din­ners. Sweep some pine coloured shadow over your lids and add a dash of dark grey to the ends to give a smoky look. Line be­low your lower lashes with the same colours too. Coat your lashes with oo­dles of mas­cara and fin­ish with some light pink lip stain.


A great duo for evenings. Cre­ate a smoky ef­fect with pur­ple and black eye­shad­ows and use laven­der or li­lac for a lit­tle high­light. For the lips, go for a wine or berry shade. If you want a lighter ver­sion of the look for day­time wear, stick with the laven­der shade only for the eyes.


This one is a clas­sic. If you aren’t cer­tain about what colours to opt for, this com­bi­na­tion will never let you down. Go for your favourite shade of hot red lip­stick and cou­ple it with a cop­pery eye­shadow. Give a lit­tle ex­tra at­ten­tion to your con­tour­ing while sport­ing this look. If you want to use glit­ter on the lips then keep the eyes matte and vice-versa. Fin­ish with sin­gle or dou­ble winged liner for an ever­green look.


It’s Christ­mas sea­son; so it’s per­fectly al­right to bring out all the gold and sil­ver pal­ettes. Hey, they are abun­dant on the Christ­mas trees and it’d be wrong to not take in­spi­ra­tion from such a fes­tive dé­cor. For this re­ally bold and glitzy look, coat your eye­lids in a solid gold shade. Ex­tend it up to the arches of the brow if you want it to re­ally stand out. With all the drama on the eyes, keep the rest of the face sim­ple, es­pe­cially the lips. All you’ll need is a glossy, clear, sheen-en­riched lip balm, and that’s it.


This is for those who like to go by the phi­los­o­phy, ‘let your eyes do all the talk­ing’. This sea­son tends to get busy and some­times there just isn’t enough time to bring out all the pal­ettes, we to­tally un­der­stand. So for those days when the min­utes are scarce but you still want to look your dash­ing self, ex­tra thick cat eyes can re­ally do the trick. Just thicken (sig­nif­i­cantly) the lines of your reg­u­lar cat eye look and pull it a lit­tle longer than usual. Don’t for­get the mas­cara.
