5 Best Celeb Makeup Tips to Look Insta-Ready for Holiday Season 2020

How do we get into the holiday spirit here at Stylevana? Some say watching the classic movies (any Love Actually fans?) and some prefer buying holiday gifts for their loved ones. The holidays may look different this year, but that does not mean we cannot celebrate the holidays all month long by going all out on holiday makeup ideas for virtual celebration. So, what makeup looks to try for this holiday season? Here are 5 best makeup tips inspired by your favorite celebs to help you look insta-ready for the 'gram!

Makeup Tip #1

Winter Frosty Makeup Look

Dua Lipa Makeup Look

Holiday Makeup Look Inspo: Dua Lipa as a stunning icy queen

The cold never bothered me anyway! What can be more festive than wearing a Frozen-inspired, frosty holiday makeup look? Different from the vibrant eye shadow and lip colors that usually pop up in our minds when we think of holiday makeup ideas, the winter icy queen look is all about the dewy foundation and base makeup — aka the Korean chok chok makeup look and also glass skin complexion. As Dua Lipa proves, a flawless foundation paired with a natural lip tint can make a perfect holiday makeup look; the sparkly party dress and blonde hair are optional.

Makeup Tip #2

Dramatic, Glitter Eye Makeup

How to shine bright in virtual celebration this holiday season? Glitter eye makeup and dramatic eye shadow might be the best fit to get you in the holiday spirit. For a low-key impact, you can dab a soft wash of gold glitter onto your lids, while leaving the rest of your face pretty much untouched. Or go big on the Korean holiday eye makeup game with bold-colored eyeshadow, and of course do not miss out the sparkly fascination.
