Can you believe it’s almost Christmas and the New Year?! To get into the holiday spirit, I’ve teamed up with Cosmopolitan Japan this month to introduce 3 fun & easy holiday looks you can try for 3 different situations – date night, party night, and girls’ night out. Read on to see which makeup products I used to create each look. Enjoy!

Date Night Look

I think the important thing about creating a date night look is to keep it as simple as possible. While you want to look amazing for your significant other, you also want it to be fuss-free so you can enjoy the actual date to the fullest. I kept this one a natural look with a focus on brows and lashes, and also by using a neutral brown color palette for the eyes and a slight contour on my cheeks. For lips, I used the new Shine On lipstick from L’Oreal Paris – it has a slightly glossy finish to achieve those kissable lips!

Party Look

I mean, if you’re going to party you gotta go all out, right? I used one of my favorite wigs from Aderans as the base for this party look. To match the purple roots in my wig, I used purple glitter eyeshadow from Colourpop with a combination of M.A.C. liquid lipstick and MAKEUP FOREVER lipstick for a pretty purple shade. Since my bangs completely cover my eyebrows, I applied a strong winged eyeliner in black for a sultry look. I experiment more with color when I’m creating a party look, so don’t be shy to try it for yourself! Add some cute accessories to finish the look 💜

Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor / MAKEUP FOREVER Artist Rouge Light Lipstick

Girls’ Night Out Look

When I’m out with my girls, I want to look as chic and put together as possible. One of my favorite hairstyles I like to do is a completely slicked-back look. To balance that out, I keep the makeup as feminine as possible but not overdone. For my eyes, I used warm tones from the Colourpop Chic-Y eyeshadow palette, and paired it with the Ultra Matte Lip in Mamacita from the same collection. You can never go wrong with a burgundy-red lip for the holidays. Kisses and have fun!

What fab looks and all so different. I personally like the date night look which is the most natural and am obsessed with how full your brows are! The girls night and party looks are also fun especially with the wig and bold lipstick colors and a great excuse to try some fun makeup! Xoxo, Christine

Wow babe, it is so cool that you teamed up with Cosmo Japan, congrats!! Your look can be so versatile, the classy simple look is very beautiful for a night out with family while the colorful edgy look is great with close gfs who knows how to have fun. I love all three looks but my favorite is the simple, clean feminine one.
