Holiday Hair and Makeup: Party Perfect Looks for Christmas and New Year

6 December, 2017

Bold lips and sparkles

 

We’re smack bang in the middle of the silly season, which means that we’re busy sipping champagne and enjoying the debauchery that Christmas brings. And with that, we’re rushing home to choose our Crimbo outfits and getting ourselves ready for our next soiree. Need a little inspiration? The styling experts at Sponge have created two gorgeous (and easy to recreate!) holiday looks that can be rocked with Christmas jumpers and velvety dresses alike. We’re talking bold red lips and seasonal sparkles…

Christmas Party Look

Makeup

Nothing screams Christmas louder than a bold, red lip! Perfect for the party season, this Christmas look is fresh and festive, subtly enhancing features to produce a look that you can rock all season. Soft and smoky brown tones enhance eyes whilst a lick of white liner on the inner lash line ties it all together. Skin is kept dewy, adding just a touch of blush for rosy cheeks and lips are painted bright red – a classic.

Sponge x Sassy tip: When the focus of your makeup is on the lips, keep your eye makeup natural and add highlighter on your cheekbones for a natural glow.

Hair

A unique yet simple twist (quite literally) on the ponytail, this slick and sophisticated hair style is made for long locks. This look is great if you’re in a pinch for time and need to get ready quickly, or if you’re someone who’s driven mad by constantly having to push your hair off of your face when working the dancefloor. Instantly adding a touch of fun and class to any outfit, this ‘do would look killer paired with a jumpsuit and heels.

Sponge x Sassy tip: once you’ve placed your hair in a ponytail, spray some water on the ponytail to make your braid really stand out with a “wet effect.”

New Year’s Eve Party Look

Makeup

If there’s one time of year that we can go all out on the glitter – it’s New Year’s Eve! We’re serious on the sparkles in this look, using reflective glitter on the eyelids, atop a smokey, silver eye. The eyes are the star of the show this new year, keeping the rest of the look simple (yet chic) with a nude lip, dewy skin and a touch of contouring on the cheek bones.

Sassy x Sponge tip: follow these simple steps to make sure the glitter stays on all night:

– Use eyeshadow primer on the eyelids first
– Put on eyeshadow as you would normally
– Carefully pat glitter glue or glitter primer on eyelids on top of the eyeshadow
– Carefully pat glitter on your eyelids, using a small brush or your fingers

Glamorous Hollywood curls finish off this New Year’s Eve party look. Worth the extra time it takes to curl your tresses, section your parting to the side and work your way through each section of hair. Tuck your locks behind one ear and reach for your most sparkly pair of earrings – it’s time to ring in 2018!

Sassy x Sponge tip: to make sure your curls last throughout the night, count to 10 for each hair strand when curling, then let the curls set for a bit before letting them loose
