Holiday parties at the end of the year have always been the most glamorous events. People usually prepare for them months in advance, carefully choosing a location and the outfit.
Well, this year, that will not be the case. Due to the pandemic, none of us will have the chance to attend a grand party.
Even though there is no need for extra expenses on a pricey outfit, we can dress up and makeup to look awesome for a small family gathering as well as for Instagram photos. Therefore, we are bringing you some beauty tips and tricks for a great look (at least in the photos).
For shiny, spotless skin, constant care is the most important. A balanced diet without fast food and sweets will reflect positively on your skin. You will not need to cover it up too much if you are well rested as well. So, stay stress-free and step up your skincare game before the holiday season starts.
If you don’t have the chance to visit your beautician regularly, there are a lot of effective skincare routines you can practice at home. Natural ingredients can do wonders to your skin and you probably have all of them at home. Treat yourself to a spa night at least once a week – enjoy long bubble baths and a DIY mask afterward.
This holiday season, dramatic eyeliner is a must. If you like wearing it but hate spending too much time applying it and trying to make the wings look even, maybe you should leave it to a professional. Professional permanent eyeliner will make you look great 24/7, never gets smudged, and is always on point.
For the Christmas party, we suggest always trendy red lipstick. Along with black eyeliner, this combination is perfect for the festive season. You can choose among different shades, such as scarlet red, coral, or the classic one.
We all tend to get lazy and gain some weight during cold months. If you are unwilling to hit the gym, or your gym is closed due to the pandemic, try to keep up with your workout routine at home as much as possible. A lot of fitness instructors are offering online workout sessions, so why not join one.
In addition, stay hydrated and avoid processed foods if you want to stay healthy and fit. We know that festive food is delicious but you might feel bloated if you eat too much.
Keep your hair nurtured and healthy by avoiding exposure to the heat. So, try not to use the hair straightener or curling iron for a couple of weeks. Brush it regularly and treat it with some hair masks that will keep it healthy.
For the Christmas party, choose stylish hairstyles that fit you best. The most elegant look will be achieved with a low, messy bun combined with elegant, shiny earrings. If you are not very skillful in making it yourself, ask someone to help you or try to find a “how-to” video online.
Don’t neglect your feet during cold months. They need constant care, especially in winter, because the skin tends to dry and they can become itchy and painful. Give yourself a DIY pedicure every now and then. Wash them properly, remove dry skin and moisturize them regularly with proper foot cream or a lotion. It is also a good idea to soak them and buy or even make a mask for your feet.
We believe you keep your nails neat and manicured all year round, but why don’t you make them look fun and festive? You can color them in vivid colors or add some cute holiday features. Glittery nail polish is a must for the holiday season, so add a layer of glitter over your favorite nail polish.
If, on the other hand, that is just not your cup of tea, you can go classy with stylish red nails or just neat french tips. For those bolder, choose frosted tips instead of french.
Don’t forget to have a good time! Relax, get enough sleep, and don’t exaggerate with food and alcohol, and you will look and feel beautiful.
