The holidays are here, and we have a feeling your schedule is about to be filled to the brim with parties, get-togethers, and all sorts of celebrations. You’ll be seeing family, old friends, and just about everyone you know over the course of the holidays, so you’ll no doubt want to look your best—complete with an amazing makeup look. Not sure how to do your makeup for the holidays? We can help! Here, we’re sharing a foolproof holiday makeup look that’s fit for any occasion in the months of November and December. So, stop stressing over how you’ll do your makeup and leave it to us—from your eye makeup to your lip color, keep reading for a step-by-step holiday makeup tutorial.

Step #1: Give yourself a flawless complexion

A foolproof makeup look starts with a flawless complexion. When you’re reunited with all of your friends and family, you’ll want your skin to look its best—which is why it’s important to choose the right foundation. We recommend the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super Blendable Makeup because the formula will give your complexion medium coverage with a natural, true-to-skin result. After you’ve applied this blendable foundation, it’s time to grab your concealer. Apply the L’Oréal Paris True Match™  Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer in an upside-down triangle under your eyes and to any blemishes you want to disguise.

Step #2: Contour like a pro

There’s nothing quite like a perfectly bronzed face—even when you haven’t seen the sun in months. In fact, the holidays are the perfect time to emphasize your features with a bit of bronzer. Try the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Bronze It Bronzer and apply it to the hollows of your cheeks, your temples, your jawline, and along the sides of your nose to create the illusion of perfectly sculpted features.

Step #3: Define your brows

It’s time to focus on your eye makeup! To start, fill in and define your brows. With all of the festivities, you’ll want to use eyebrow makeup that has a long-wearing formula. We love the L’Oréal Paris Unbelieva-Brow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel. First, use the doe first applicator to apply the gel and fill in any sparse areas. Then, use the included angled brush to outline your brow shape and define your arch. Finish your eyebrows by brushing through them with a spoolie (there’s one on the opposite end of your angled brush) to blend out the product and get rid of any harsh lines.

Step #4: Wing it out

Grab your liner and get ready to create your sharpest winged eyeliner look! Use the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Liquid Eyeliner in Black to line along your upper lash line and draw your wing. Take your time to create a sleek, smooth line since this will be the focus of your eye makeup look.

Step #5: Coat your lashes

No eye makeup look is complete without a few coats of mascara. You’ll want to put your best lashes forward for the holidays, so start by coating your lashes with an eyelash primer, like the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Primer/Base. This primer will thicken your lashes and enhance the wear of your mascara. Once you’ve applied your primer, grab the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara to add intense length and voluptuous volume to your fringe. Pro tip: Do one eye at a time so your primer doesn’t dry before you apply your mascara.

Step #6: Grab your lipstick

To finish your foolproof look, you’ll want to paint your pout in a vibrant red fit for the holidays. You can choose a lipstick with a glossy or matte finish depending on your preference—it’s all up to you! Depending on your skin’s undertones, you’ll also want to choose between a red lip color with orange or blue undertones. If you have warm undertones, opt for an orange-based red. If you have cool undertones, use a blue-based red. Want a universal red? Paint your pout with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Matte-ly in Love.
