Our Guide to Holiday Makeup

Get ready for the Christmas season with our guide to holiday makeup!

There’s no better time to experiment with elevated makeup looks than during the holidays. The sparkle of the festive season is without a doubt the perfect time to advance your beauty routine to the next level. After all – it’s the most wonderful time of the year for a reason! If you want to learn how you can transform your everyday makeup look to one that’s worthy of a holiday party, keep on reading.


Since it’s the holiday season, you want your face to really pop. We recommend always starting your base makeup routine with a good primer. This will not only make your makeup last longer, but it can lock in moisture, minimise the appearance of pores, and leave your skin with a glowy finish. We are loving jane iredale’s Smooth Affair Illuminating Glow Face Primer which smooths and illuminates the skin for a glowing canvas for makeup.

Taking a couple extra minutes to contour can bring out your angles and inject some life into your face. We recommend using jane iredale’s Finishing Touches Face Palette. This new six-shade palette will add a festive finishing touch to any holiday look. The best part is that it’s extremely versatile – with warm matte bronzers, shimmery highlighters, and radiant blushes, this palette is the complete package for a stunning festive look. To achieve a defined look, use the bronzer shades to draw a “3” shape along your cheekbones, up onto the temples, and down your jawline. Apply the highlighter to the high points of your face including your cheekbones, cupids bow, chin, and the tip of your nose. Finally, finish off your festive base by applying a little bit of blush to the apples of your cheeks.

Eyeshadow is the star of any good Christmas look! Right now, we are obsessed with jane iredale’s PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple in the shade Cognac. To start off your look, apply the lightest shimmery shade all over the eyelids as a base. Next, blend the light brown shade into your crease using a rough V formation. To finish, sparingly apply the darkest shade to the outer corner of your eyes. The result should be a gorgeous, shimmery eyeshadow look that is perfectly fit for the holidays!

You don’t have to worry about smudging with this product – it is both smudge and flake proof so you can dance all night long!

Red lips and the festive season go together like Santa’s cookies and milk! Here at La Peau, we are absolutely loving jane iredale’s HydroPure Hyaluronic Lip Gloss in the shade Berry Red. This restorative, pillowy-soft gloss combines lasting hydration with the lip-loving benefits of a balm for fuller, supple lips. Even better, it’s the perfect shade for any holiday party! The warm berry colour isn’t too overwhelming for day-to-day wear, but still captures the joyful spirit that you’ll want to flaunt throughout the festive season. Simply use the product applicator to glide this gorgeous gloss over your lips.
