Christmas Party Makeup Looks
Whether you're headed to a socially distant soirée or having festive drinks via Zoom, you can keep safe and still look your best with these glamorous COVID friendly Christmas party makeup styles
We all have to celebrate carefully this Christmas party season, but luckily we’ve found three easy ways to ensure that your makeup is COVID-friendly for the occasion. Kisses and handshakes might be out of the question but mascara and eyeshadow aren’t, so read on to learn our beauty tips and tricks that will keep you safe and stylish this festive period.
Keep the attention on your eyeshadow
If you're meeting up in person for a socially distant Christmas party, then a mask will be mandatory. Instead, make the most of your eyes with the Iconoclast Eyeshadow Palette. This award-winning compact has been created using revolutionary Knead Technology and has a highly pigmented and long-lasting formula. You can use the shadows wet or dry to create striking eye looks and the silky textures won’t fade as the night goes on, thanks to their pre-baked pigments, which are blended with sweet almond and evening primrose oils. Each palette can be worn differently to help draw partygoers’ gaze away from your face mask and up to your eyes. The ultimate Covid friendly Christmas makeup look for 2020.
Burnt Sienna - To begin this Covid friendly Christmas party look, prime your eyelids using the lightest colour from the Burnt Sienna palette before blending the deep burgundy into the crease. Then take the second lightest colour again and pat this onto the centre of the eyelid. Finish by swiping the desert red beneath the bottom waterline. Want something with even more drama?

Jaipur Marbles - If you would prefer to use the Jaipur Marbles palette for your Christmas party makeup look then begin by applying the lightest colour from the palette all over the eyelid and then line the eye with the emerald green. Next, use the darkest shade to smoke beneath the eye and drag slightly upwards towards the outer corner. To finish this Covid friendly party makeup, use the highlighting shade to add some shimmer to the centre of the eyelids. Want more dramatic eye looks? Click here.
Velvet Chrome - If you opt for the suitably festive Velvet Chrome palette for your Christmas party makeup look, then we suggest you begin by taking the metallic berry shadow all over the lid, making sure to blend up and into the inner corner. Next, use the blue-grey in the crease of your eye socket to create a striking contrast. Finish the look by mixing the blue-grey highlight and contour shade onto the centre of the lid.

Make your lips the talking point
If your Christmas party is taking place virtually this year due to Covid, we suggest you help your makeup stand out on camera by choosing colours that are vivid and bright. Alexa Chung’s All-Day Soirée Lipstick Trio is the perfect gift set for the festive season because it contains three highly-pigmented, long-lasting shades that will make an impact on even the most pixelated of computer screens.
‘Peach Dream’ is a luxuriously smooth pink hue with a satin finish—the perfect lip for day time Zoom drinks—while ‘Affogato’ is a flattering nude that’s appropriate for a festive video call with your office team. The pièce de résistance of the kit is ‘Pillar Box,’ the ultimate bright Christmas red, a vivacious look for any virtual Christmas party. It offers an incredibly rich, full colour that leaves lips hydrated without any flaking or peeling. Ideal if you’re video chatting away into the night.
Get creative with your liner and lashes
Even if you won’t be wearing a mask to your Christmas party this year, opting for elaborate eye makeup means you’ll be less tempted to touch your face or rub your eyes. This will not only help to keep you safe from germs, but will look beautiful, to boot. If you want to experiment with winged liner and long lashes this festive season, you need the Ultimate Eye Product Trio. It features the award-winning Iconoclast Eyeshadow Palette, the weightless and water-resistant Precision Liquid Eyeliner, and the long-lasting Lash Sophisticate High Definition Mascara.
After applying an eyeshadow of your choice all over your lid with a fluffy brush, use the ultra-fine tip of the liner to draw effortless cat eyes. Finish your festive look with several coats of the mascara. The buildable formula will become more dramatic as you layer it, and is enriched with Vitamin A and E to protect your lashes from environmental damage.
The Christmas party season might be a little different in 2020, but that doesn’t mean it can’t still be magical. With our products by your side, whether you’re celebrating in-person or virtually you can still have a glamorous night to remember.
