Amazing Charleston Makeup for your Holiday Parties

‘Tis the season to get all decked out! But what good is a sparkly dress and fabulous shoes if you don’t make sure your holiday makeup game is on point? The best way to make sure you look festive and feel as beautiful as possible is to take your holiday party makeup to the next level. Your clothes shouldn’t get to have all the fun, right? Try these amazing tips for making a statement during the most wonderful season of the year.

Charleston Makeup Classics


To be a standout at any holiday party, just channel your inner Hollywood starlet. Red lips can add extra dramatic flair while making you look chic, pulled together and sexy. To put a fun spin on this old favorite, try a crimson or cranberry look.

Make Yourself Shine

Glitter will never go out of style! And what better time to add a little sheen to your makeup routine than the festive holiday season? Go all out and choose a gold or silver eye shadow. Try just a few strategically placed sparkles for a fun and flirty look, or pile on layers of glitter to be the diva of the evening. For a fun and more reserved look, add glitter to your lipstick or go with a gold or silver lip. Just try to avoid going glitter on the eyes and lips at the same time.

Try Luxe Lashes


By the time you get to midnight, too much mascara can begin to run and make you look less like Cinderella and more like the ugly stepsister. Adding lash extensions can help give you the look you want without compromising your eye makeup.

Go Naked

Choosing a nude palette for your eyes, lips and cheeks can be a stunning contrast to the yearly sparkle and shine. A great contour, glowy moisturizer and perfect highlighter can take you to Kate Middleton status in no time.

Add Some Spice  

If you’re sick of your “everything nice” routine and want to try something striking and new, go for the dark side of makeup instead. Choose purple hues, navy shadows or plum lips. To really make your face pop, try a backwards cat-eye by lining the bottom of your lashes with a navy blue or purple pencil. If you normally go Charleston makeup pretty, it might be a fun chance to mix it up for the night and secure that midnight kiss.
