Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo! It’s that time of the year where getting glammed up is all the rage! Whether you’re having a virtual or an intimate Christmas gathering with loved ones, don’t miss out on a chance to try out some trendy makeup looks. You may not have a fairy-godmother, but Shopee is here to give you a hand. We’ve come up with a makeup guide filled with the best Christmas makeup looks that you should definitely try out! But first, read on for some crucial steps when it comes to all the glitz and glam!
3 Simple Steps to Glam Up Your Look
1. Prep the base
The secret to every perfect makeup look is prepping the base. Before you get too excited and lather on some foundation, do some skincare first! Grab a Cetaphil Toner to clean your face and remove any unwanted dirt. What you’ll need is a clean base and this toner does the job! It also contains niacinamide which is well-known for its brightening effect. Once that’s done, put on some Garnier Vitamin C Serum. If you’ve been dealing with some acne scars and dark spots, fret not because this Vitamin C Serum is here to save the day. Last but definitely not least, hydrate and moisturize your face with the Happy Skin Hyaluronic Duo. With this set, you’ll get a serum that will plump up your skin and a Mini Cooling Cryo Ball for that facial massage you’ve been dreaming of!
2. Get ready for photos
Any gathering comes with a ton of photos taken! This requires the type of makeup that will look great in any selfie or group photo. Once your skincare is fully set, the Ellana Blur Primer will help further smoothen your skin by blurring out your pores. Then, put on the world famous L’Oreal Paris Liquid Foundation for the perfect amount of coverage that will last for hours! Look more awake and frame those beautiful eyes with the Maybelline Falsies Mascara. With this mascara in tow, it will look like you have falsies on without going through all the fuss! Your lips need some plumping too! The blk Cosmetics Gloss Gel Tint adds in the right amount of color and gloss to your lips – perfectly tying up your Christmas makeup look.
3. Gloss the hair
Dealing with frizzy hair is not the easiest thing. But luckily, the Herbal Essences Shampoo + Conditioner won’t just smoothen your worry lines but your hair too! Infused with argan oil, you better believe that your hair will be as smooth and hydrated as can be. Going for the sleek look? Straighten your hair with the Ckeyin Hair Straightener and Curler.
