I love the holiday season for sooo many reasons—the presents and the food, duh—but you know what’s at the very top of my list? The makeup. Other than Halloween (and, like, my birthday), it’s one of the only times I truly go all out with my look. I’m talking bold eyeshadow shades, shimmery red lipstick, blinding highlighters, and of course—glitter. In case you need some inspo to get on my level, I rounded up the 27 best Christmas makeup ideas from all of your fav celebs (think: Bella Hadid, Zendaya, and Margot Robbie) that’ll get you in mood for this upcoming holiday season. Trust: You’re gonna want to start wearing these looks ASAP.
Emily Ratajkowski’s Dramatic Eyeliner for Christmas
Forget a subtle flick and go for a bold cat-eye like Emily Ratajkowski. Line both your top and bottom lashes with an inky liner, and then layer on some mascara for an eye-opening Christmas makeup look.
Jasmine Tookes’ All Over Glow for Christmas
Who says highlighter only belongs on your face? Take notes from Jasmine Tookes this holiday season and blend a shimmery body highlighter along your shoulders and chest for the ultimate glow.
Fanny Bourdette-Donon’s Blue Eyeshadow for Christmas
Go for an icy Christmas makeup look and swipe on a two-toned blue eyeshadow, just like Fanny Bourdette-Donon did in Paris in 2019. TBH, I’m going to copy the sweater idea from her too…
Joan Smalls’ Nude Lip Look for Christmas
How good does this nude lipstick look on Joan Smalls? Pair it with a slight jawline contour, soft blush, and a smokey eye to finish off your Christmas makeup look.
Margot Robbie’s Orange Eyeshadow for Christmas
Have some fun with your Christmas makeup this year and play around with a bold orange eyeshadow. Blend the shade all the way up to your brow bone, like Margot Robbie does here, or keep it closer to your lash line—whatever floats your boat.
Yara Shahidi’s Red Eyeliner Christmas Look
Red eyeliner is a super-easy way to add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral Christmas makeup look. Copy Yara Shahidi and keep it slightly abstract by leaving some negative space towards the end of your wing.
Zendaya’s Pink Eyeshadow for Christmas
The one thing I love about pink eyeshadow is that it legit works for everyone. If you want a fresh and effortless vibe? Go for a softer rose shade, like Zendaya. Want something more extra? Tap in a bright fuchsia. Whatever hue you decide on for your Christmas makeup look, be sure to grab an eyeshadow brush to blend your shade out below your lash line.
Gabrielle Union’s Blue Eyeliner for Christmas
This blue underliner on Gabrielle Union is the easiest way to add some color to your look if the rest of your makeup is lowkey. Pair it with filled-in brows and a nude lip and you’ll be good to go.
Camila Mendes’s Coral Lips for Christmas
Tired of swiping on the same ol’ red lip you wear every December? Switch it up and rock a coral lipstick instead, like Camila Mendes does here. Think of it as the cooler older sister to a classic crimson shade.
Halsey’s Iridescent Highlighter For Christmas
Sofia Richie’s Pop of Shimmer for Christmas
Lucy Hale’s Green Eyeshadow for Christmas
Green eyeshadow is definitely an underrated color for the holidays, but look how good it looks on Lucy Hale! You can def pull it off—just remember to use a primer to make sure your shadow stays put.
Kendall Jenner’s Peachy Lips, Lids, and Cheeks for Christmas
Kendall Jenner’s monochrome makeup isn’t just gorge, it’s easy to do too. Grab a peachy cream blush and dab it on your cheeks, dot it on your lids, and press it into your lips.
Bella Hadid’s Bronze Eyes for Christmas
Kim Kardashian’s Crazy-Glossy Lids for Christmas
Kim Kardashian literally came through dripping in her 2019 Met Gala look (I mean, that dress was amazing), but you know what was just as good? Her makeup. Top off your eyeshadow with a clear gloss to add serious shine.
Demi Lovato’s Purple Eyeshadow for Christmas
Take a page out of Demi Lovato’s makeup book and try this dreamy purple makeup look for your next holiday celebration. Sweep on a lavender eyeshadow and smoke it out underneath your bottom lashes.
Karrueche Tran’s Winged Liner and Red Lips for Christmas
Chiara Ferragni’s Red Glitter Lips for Christmas
If you love being the life of the holiday party, go all-out with a red glitter lip, like Chiara Ferragni’s. To recreate this festive look, swipe a cream red lip color all over your lips and then press on a superfine, crimson-colored glitter.
Yara Shahidi’s Gilded Eyes for Christmas
Yara Shahidi’s holiday makeup is all about the eyes. Define the outside corners of your eyes with a black kohl liner, then use a blending brush and black shadow to smudge it out for a smokier cat-eye look. Use your finger to dab a gold, glittery shadow on the middle of your eyelids and the inner corners for the finishing touch.
Emily Ratajkowski’s Shimmery Copper Shadow for Christmas
Zendaya’s Shimmery Smoky Eye for Christmas
Gigi Hadid’s Contoured Cheekbones for Christmas
Gigi Hadid’s look is all about contouring the cheekbones and eyelids. To get her look, blend a taupe shadow into the crease of your eyes and underneath your bottom lashes, and then do the same right below your cheekbones with a contour powder. To finish your look, pat a gold shimmery shadow along your eyelids and on the center of your pout.
Solange’s Brushed Brows and Bold Lip for Christmas
With a purple lip color as fun and bold as Solange’s, you really don’t need to add anything else for your holiday party— except a beautiful, brushed-up brow.
Hailey Bieber’s Dark Red Lipstick for Christmas
For an instantly sexy holiday makeup look, opt for a dark, scarlet red lipstick in a satiny finish, like Hailey Bieber’s.
Selena Gomez’s Allover Neutrals for Christmas
For an understated yet totally gorgeous makeup look like Selena Gomez’s, stick to the same neutral color palette for your cheeks, eyes, and lips.
Kylie Jenner’s Statement Blush for Christmas
For an ultra-glam look like Kylie Jenner’s, bump up the highlighter on your cheekbones, swipe on a pink blush, and complete your look with a winged eye and dusty pink-rose lip.
