'Tis the Season for Easy Holiday Makeup
This blog post was written by Silvana Longo
From day outings to festive soirées, these looks take their cue from nature and celebrate the skin you’re in
The gifts are wrapped, the Hallmark movies are in full force and while chestnuts are roasting on an open fire, and the fresh fallen snow is glistening from your window, this winter-ready scene is the perfect backdrop for some easy festive looks.
In the northern hemisphere, the time is ripe for the ever-popular, TikTok viral sensation aptly called the “Cold Girl” look.
A spinoff from the sunburnt look in the summer, this frosty feel is achieved primarily by concentrating the blush on the apple of your cheeks with an added dab of pink on your nose, replicating that “I just got in from a winter walk” or, “fresh off the slopes” look without actually skiing.
GET THE LOOK
Start off with a matte canvas and dot NUDIES BLOOM ALL OVER FACE DEWY COLOR in Cherry Blossom Babe on your cheeks and a light dot on your nose (you’re not going for a Rudolph look here) and blend with a sponge or brush. Add some NUDIES GLOW ALL OVER FACE HIGHLIGHT in Euphorix for extra iridescence on cheeks and above the brow. For eyes, keep the shimmer white or silver, we suggest brushing 99% Angel Glimmer across the lids. For lips, use a similar shade, like MAGNETIC LUMINOUS EYE COLOR in Angel as a highlight pencil just above the Cupid’s bow before applying any shade of pink or even red. Concentrate the colour in the centre of your lips while smudging out the sides for that “just-kissed” look. Taylor applies Pulse GEL COLOR LIP & CHEEK BALM for a perfect pink. Finish the look with a natural nude LIP GLACÉ in NUDE 02 for some shine. You can forego the eyeliner and mascara for a more natural look, but curl those lashes before you head out the door, either way!
Amp up this look easily for evening parties, dinners out with friends and of course, ringing in the new year. Get the glam while keeping it soft and festive with our go-to NUDE ROSE GOLD eye palette, a collection of rose-gold themed MAGNETIC EYE COLOR PENCILS that will make eyes twinkle, ready to take on all the sparkly affairs of the season.

Your blank canvas starts with clean, buffed skin. Let your best self shine through with our TINTED COVER FOUNDATION. Whether you contour or use bronzer to add enhanced sculpting and definition, pick your favourite NUDIE ALL-OVER FACE COLOR, (may we suggest: Naughty N’ Spice?) on the apples of cheeks…once blended, don’t forget to add instant glow with NUDIES GLOW ALL OVER HIGHLIGHT in ILLUMINATI.
For eyes, sweep MAGNETIC LUMINOUS EYE COLOR in Nudity across the lid, in the corner of the eyes and above your cupid’s bow. For the crease, Burnish adds subtle definition and a luminous finish. Maroon’d on the lash line completes this smouldering look for eyes, this time however, don’t forego the LASH LENGTHENING MASCARA"after some lash curling of course! Soft, sultry eyes means only one thing…they beckon to welcome the new year with hot red lips! Line them first with Royal and then fill them in…Gloss it up and add Nude Cherry 00 LIP GLACE to finish"and be ready to toast to 2023 with this super glam, easy festive look.
Whether you spend the holiday catching up with friends and family, or binge-watching Netflix, we wish you the very best of the season and to always love the skin you’re in.
