There are so many things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, but we can’t help but be extra grateful for the opportunity to experiment with new makeup looks this holiday season. After all, who doesn’t want to look their best when reuniting with friends and family they haven’t seen in a while? If you’re on the hunt for Thanksgiving makeup ideas, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we’re sharing five easy Thanksgiving makeup looks—from eye makeup to lip makeup—to aid you in creating your most beautiful holiday beauty look yet!
THANKSGIVING MAKEUP LOOK #1: TEAL EYES
Steer away from traditional fall makeup and give teal eyes a try. Read on to learn how to create the look.
STEP #1: PERFECT YOUR COMPLEXION
Of course, all the best makeup looks start with a flawless base. Hide any imperfections by applying the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation, Lightweight, building the formula up to reach your desired level of coverage.
STEP #2: COLOR YOUR CHEEKS
A little bit of blush can go a long way! While you’ll want to have your eyes be the center of this Thanksgiving makeup look, you can still give your complexion a subtle flush of color by applying the L’Oréal Paris True Match Blush in Barely Blushing on your cheeks.
STEP #3: PAINT YOUR EYES
It’s time for the star of your look—your eye shadow! After applying an eye primer, smooth the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Teal Couture across your lids. Blend the color into your crease with the help of the L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Matte It Up and a fluffy eye shadow brush. Then, line your lower lash line with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Black, gently smudging for a softer look.
STEP #4: COAT YOUR LASHES
Finish your eye makeup by applying a few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara in Blackest Black.
STEP #5: GRAB YOUR LIPSTICK
Teal eyes pair beautifully with neutral lip colors. Swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick in Sweet Tooth to complete your Thanksgiving makeup look.
THANKSGIVING MAKEUP LOOK #2: BROWN LIPS
Brown lips will always be a classic look for fall, and with that, Thanksgiving. Color your lips in a beautiful brown hue with the help of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick in Bittersweet.
THANKSGIVING MAKEUP LOOK #3: PLUM LIPS
How about another lip-centric Thanksgiving makeup look? We love plum lips for the occasion.
STEP #1: CREATE YOUR BASE
STEP #2: ADD SOME HIGHLIGHT
Who doesn’t love glowing skin? Give your complexion an added glow by applying the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Shimmerista Highlighting Powder to your cheekbones, the tip of your nose, and your cupid’s bow.
STEP #3: KEEP YOUR EYES SIMPLE
When it comes to your eyes, you’ll want to keep things simple. Swipe on a light gray eye shadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Argentic, then apply a few coats of mascara.
STEP #4: PAINT YOUR LIPS
It’s time for the focal point of your Thanksgiving makeup look—your plum lipstick! Color your pout with the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick in I Enjoy, and your statement lip is complete.
THANKSGIVING MAKEUP LOOK #4: RUST LIPS
Speaking of statement lips, rust has become quite the trendsetting hue when it comes to lipstick. Want to wear it this Thanksgiving? All you need to do is paint your pout with the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick in I Amaze. Easy, right?
THANKSGIVING MAKEUP LOOK #5: MAROON EYES
As far as fall colors go, no color fits the season quite as well as maroon. Which is why it shouldn’t come as a surprise that our next Thanksgiving makeup look is centered around maroon eyes.
STEP #1: GRAB YOUR FOUNDATION
Using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, buff the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation onto your face.
STEP #2: BRONZE YOUR CHEEKS
To add a bit of warmth to your complexion, you’ll want to use a bronzer. Apply the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Bronze It Bronzer to the hollows of your cheeks to do just that.
STEP #3: COLOR YOUR EYES
Ready to amp up the maroon vibes? After applying an eye primer, start by coating your lids in the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Acro-Matte, blending the color into your crease with a fluffy eye shadow brush. Then, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Burgundy to line your lower lash line, gently smudging for an imperfect appearance.
STEP #4: LAYER ON MASCARA
Next up: Mascara! For a final touch of maroon, swipe on a few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Deep Burgundy.
STEP #5: APPLY A LIP GLOSS
While your eyes will be the focus of your look, you should still pop on a lip gloss before heading out the door. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 8 HR Le Gloss in Barely Nude for a neutral, glossy pout.
