The Makeup Lady – Makeup To Pair With Holiday Sweaters

The Makeup Lady

For December, we are taking a different approach with The Makeup Lady. Julia is coming up with some great Holiday outfit ideas for December and I decided to pair some beauty looks to complete your Holiday Outfit Inspiration. If you tuned in yesterday you realized that this week is all about the Holiday Sweater. It can be challenging coordinating your makeup to your outfits, especially with an over the top sweater. The last thing you want is a face full of caked on makeup and a sweater that screams you bedazzled your way to success. Leave the red lips at home. These sweaters scream fun and it’s time to play up your eyes with some shimmer or color.

First up, the sleek all black look with the hint of Christmas.

How She'd Wear It - Holiday Sweaters

Since Julia paired this look with gold jewelry, it’s only fitting to accent your eyes with shimmery golds. Play up your eyes or keep it subtle, the choice is up to you. But this look will top this outfit off perfectly.

How She'd Wear It - Fun Holiday Sweaters

This one I gained a little two tone inspiration for the eyes. Afterall it’s a holiday party and you need to have a little fun with your look. For this look, stick towards more of the cool tones and away from the bronze look. This outfit incorporates more cool tones so you’ll want to keep it consistent.
