Easy Holiday Makeup Ideas

3 Easy Makeup Looks That Require 3 Shades or Less

If applying cat-eye liner sounds like a scary task and false eyelash instructions are like a map written in an alien tongue, then these easy beauty looks are for you. Simplify your holiday makeup routine with the following three outstanding palettes from the runway. With three products or less, you can convert your basics to bewitching.

Look 1: Blooms and Blossoms
You need: Pink lipstick and a smoky eye shadow.
Get it: Swipe a smoky eye shadow (preferably a deep brown or dark gray) on the lids of the eye only. Then layer a rosy lip stain, like Tarte LipSurgence in Amused ($24) on cheeks. Finish by swiping the same color on the lips for a fully flushed appearance.

Look 2: Raring Red
You need: Red lipstick and sheer gold shadow.
Get it: If you're a fan of a bold lip, pair your favorite red shade with a pop of gold. Apply a sheer gold shadow, such as Bobbi Brown Shimmer Was in Copper Penny ($21), from lid to brow and in the inner corners of the eye. You can also dab on the shade as a highlighter around the face.

Look 3: Navy Seals
You need: Blue eyeliner, silver shadow, and a nude lipstick.
Get it: This makeup look focuses on the eyes. Add a swipe of navy blue eyeliner, like the felt-tipped Nars Eyeliner Stylo in Atlantic ($27) on the top lid, leaving the inner corners blank. Then use a silver shadow pencil in the inner rims forming a V shape. Finally, swipe on a warm nude lipstick.
