When it comes to the holidays, we’re all a little bit “extra.” From piled-on glitter to a bright red lip, there’s no better time to step out of your shell and play around with an array of glamorous looks. Keep reading to discover the top six trends to try this season.
Trend: Old Hollywood
Ideal for any holiday soiree, this style instantly adds elegance and glamour to any outfit. To craft the look, start out by creating a deep side part, then curl the hair with a 1” inch curling iron. When working around the face, make sure to curl the hair inward to achieve that “Hollywood bombshell” look. Allow curls to set, then gently use your finger to comb through the waves and finish with hairspray.
Trend: Hair Accessories
Not sure how to dress up your go-to style? Opt for a couple of blinged-out hair clips or pins. An easy way to amp up any look when you’re in a rush, hair accessories instantly transform a standard ponytail or bun into a chic, holiday-ready style.
Trend: Smoky Shimmer
Wearing a bright glittery eye may be a little too much for some women, even during the holidays. A smoky eye with a hint of shimmer, on the other hand, is an easy look to pull off. To achieve a sultry finish without looking like a raccoon, opt for a blend of deep neutrals, such as taupe, charcoal and espresso, then add hints of metallic glitter shadow to the lid.

Trend: Tinsel Lashes
Warning: Tinsel is no longer reserved for your Christmas tree. Glitter lashes are making headway as the makeup trend of the moment, and we’re loving it! The best part? You can make the look as subtle or as “extra” as you want with glitter mascara, glitter strip lashes or even glitter lash extensions.
Trend: Pastel & Metallic
Can’t decide between your favorite pastel and metallic shades? You don’t have to! This holiday season, skip the primary colors and opt for flirty pastel hues paired with silver, rose gold or bronze accents. The unexpected hint of shimmer will “dress up” the casual base color and will help the nails pop.
Trend: Animal Style
Animal prints have been huge this season. Give the pattern a little holiday flair by using an iridescent or shimmery base color or add hints of gold foil to your leopard spots.
