6 beauty trends to try this holiday season

Oh, what fun!

These hair, makeup and nail trends add holiday vibes to any look.

Ice skating. Work celebrations. Family gatherings. Cookie decorating. Gift swaps. There are lots of joyful events this time of year. And in our humble (totally biased) opinion, getting playful with your look can make them even more fun. That’s why we rounded up 6 easy, cheerful holiday trends. Think: sparkly liner, berry lips, hair ornaments, metallic manis and more. They’re expert-approved, newbie-friendly, merry and bright.

1. Inner shine

A subtle, unexpected way to wear whimsical shimmer. With a glitter or metallic liner, start at the inner corner of your eye, then curve up and out towards your crease. To really make it pop, apply over neutral, matte shadow.

Hair ornaments model

2. Hair ornaments

Deck the halls hair. Jewelry-inspired headbands, barrettes and pins make everyday styles feel a little more special. In a pinch? Tie hair up at the crown, pin it into a loose chignon and pull out some face-framing strands. Finish with a twinkly headband, or mix-and-match some bejeweled clips.

Silver lining mani model

3. Silver lining mani

Winter white nails—with a twist. To get it, paint on a sheer coat of snowy lacquer. Once dry, choose a metallic shade (or alternate between a few) and create a thin dash across each nail. Shaky hands? Quick movements create smoother lines. You can also use a sheet of paper as your guide. Not into DIY holiday nail art? Look for press-on versions of the trend.

Blotted berry lip model

4. Blotted berry lip

Bold lipstick is timeless, classic holiday makeup. Make it fresh and low maintenance by blotting a berry-plum shade. The key to a super smooth application: Exfoliate lips, apply your favorite balm, swipe on a coat or two of a long wear formula in berry—then, use a tissue to blot. It creates an effortless, lived-in effect. And as a bonus, you can sip and snack without worrying about the color transferring or fading.

Evergreen eyes model

5. Evergreen eyes

A pop of green—whether an eyeliner swipe or all over and smoky—will always make a statement. Choose a metallic or iridescent finish to amp up the party vibes. Match the drama with a triple coat of mascara and balance it out with a pinky-nude lip.

Winter waves model

6. Winter waves

Unlike tousled, beachy waves, the winter version is smooth, sculpted and polished. To get this party-ready holiday hair style, fire up your favorite wave-making hot tool like a curling wand or multi-barrel clamp. Create waves from your ears down, working in sections. (Make sure to use a heat protectant.) Let it cool, then finish with a shine spray or cream for extra polish.
