8 Hair & Beauty Tips For The Christmas Holiday
Whilst you need to look after your hair all year around, autumn winds and changes in temperature of winter dictate a specific approach to your hair care. Precautions will help your hair not be exhausted by the time of your office Christmas party. And cozy autumn and winter atmosphere isn’t something that should be dreaded, but celebrated. Attending multiple parties in a short period may sound daunting, but looking good to make a great impression doesn’t have to be. Here are some great tips and suggestions to help you look best this Christmas holiday.
No time to bother with a curling iron, but you still want some waves? Then have your hair braided in three-strand braids—at least four sections of your head, sides and back included. After braiding those sections, dip your hands in water and dampen your braids a little, but remember not to drench them. Then leave them for at least two to three minutes. After that, unbraid your hair, finger comb it, and your result will be the instant natural waves. To have longer-lasting waves, put your hair in braids hours ahead of your party (if you can) and then unbraid them before you head out.
Add a texturizer
Simply flip your head over and spray, by using a dry texturizing spray, from far away, remember to focus at the root.
Choose the side part
For an easy day-to-night transformation, why you don’t switch up your look for an evening party by creating a deep side part—a sleek and sexy look. Just need to use a hairspray on your part, and pin hair down to allow it to set and dry. It will come in handy if your hair initially resists falling where you want it to go.
Try this blow-drying trick
If you’re deciding to get a blowout or do your own before a party: One of the best ways to make your blow dry last is by twisting your hair loosely as high as you can get and fasten it with large hairpins. This method will help prevent any dents or marks in your blow out.
Use lip liner
If you want your lips to look neat, not sloppy, add this extra product to your routine. One of the easiest ways to achieve fabulous red lips that last all day is starting by lining your lips with a waterproof lip liner, then fill out the entire lip area with the same lip liner and then finish by applying a thin coat of your favorite long-lasting red lipstick. You can choose matte, shiny or metallic lipstick finish depending on your mood and your demand.
Find the perfect green eye shadow
Have you ever thought of going extra festive with your eye makeup? If you have, opt into green shadow. The secret lies in the way you choose the right shade of green for your skin tone. As a rule of thumb, light skin tones look better with lighter green shades and dark skin tones should combine with rich, dark emerald shades. To highlight your bold eyes, remember to keep the rest of the face in natural tones with a soft peach blush, nude lipstick or lip-gloss, and a hint of illuminator.
Go for brighter colors
Filled with fun, makeup for your Christmas is as easy as choosing a brighter or bolder shade than your usual. Say goodbye to your black or brown kohl eyeliner and use a deep navy blue, maybe even one with some glitter, if you’re feeling extra adventurous. To finish the process, draw the liner a little thicker, and don’t worry if it’s a little uneven—sloppy is good! Don’t forget to lightly smudge it out with a cotton bud for easy, smoky lids.
Get selfie ready
Before joining in some selfies, strategically choose your makeup. Definitely use HD foundation and concealer if you want to see your best look in images. It will be undetectable on the skin, and it doesn’t have to break the bank because a lot of great HD options are always available in drugstores. Keep in mind to steer clear of translucent setting powder and products with SPF, which tend to flashback in flash photography
