Get checking out these bizarre celebrity beauty hacks to get you looking your merry best this Christmas...
And one of the most stressful parts of all? Choosing a makeup look that is going to slay harder than Santa and Rudolph's vehicle of choice. Fortunately for you we've totally got your back on the glam front.
Whether you're after that natural glow, looking for some glitter eyeshadow inspo or ready to get extra af - we've definitely got you covered with these 15 Christmas party apt makeup looks...
Classic holiday glow
You literally cannot go wrong with this classic glam by Nitraa B. All you need is a deep red lippy and the Holy Grail Violet Voss palette and you're all good to go.
Nude Lip Glam
For those among us that wouldn't wear a dark lip even if our lives depended on it, then the classic nude lippy and smoked out eye look is your bestie.
Just make sure you sneak some colour into your outfit for that festive wow factor à la Carli Bybel.
Christmas glitter eyes all the way
Name two more Christmassy colours than green and red... it's literally not possible, which is why this is THE ultimate Christmas party look.
Granted, it would take a little bravery, but it's guaranteed to be a head turner.
Mauve is the perfect lip colour if you're not quite ready to fully surrender your soul to the dark side, but you're up for dipping your toes in a little.
Paired with a shimmery eye, this would be gorgeous for any Christmas party.
A cut crease to make their knees weak
A cut crease is not for the weak. It takes skill, determination and a whole heap of patience (and not to mention time). But it's always worth it in the end.
This warm cut crease with a glitter wing is giving us next level eye makeup envy.
The bold wing
Nothing makes a statement quite like bold winged liner, and Christmas parties are the perfect time to thicken up that wing and hark the herald angels sing, "glory to the newborn King!"
Sorry, got sidetracked. But anyway, winged liner is just as great as carols at Christmas.
Let's face it, we haven't all got the skill and time to create a cut crease masterpiece or a razor-sharp wing. In which case, a simple glowy look like Gigi's is simply perfect.
If it's good enough for a supermodel, it's good enough for us.
It all about the winter tan
Who says you have to be pasty just because it's winter? Get out the fake bake and slap on that bronzer, guaranteed your colleagues will be grateful for your luminosity lighting up the work do.
Smokey wing for the win
If in doubt: wing it out! We aren't all wizards with the liquid liner, gel liner, felt liner or any other type of liner for that matter. Luckily you can just whack out the eyeshadow and create a smoked out wing fit for a queen.
A red lip does the trick
Riri knows the deal, a red lip is always bound to be a show stealer no matter what time of year it is, but there's no time like Christmas to give crimson a whirl.
Just be prepared to paint the town (i.e. the other guests) red if you spend a prolonged amount of time under the mistletoe.
That festive glow
Ho ho ho, it's all about the festive glow. Christmas is NOT a time to go easy on the highlighter. Whack that glitter on hun, if the other guests aren't blinded by you, you're doing it wrong.
This babe got glitzed up using the Huda Beauty 3d highlighter... brb, gone shopping.
If you're feeling extra af
It wouldn't be a Christmas party without at least one EXTRA af guest, and if no one else is man enough to do it, you may as well step up to the plate.
This look is pretty precise and would require various layers of green eyeshadow, but it would all be worth it to be crowned the candy cane queen on the eve.
The dark lip look
It's worth going easy on the eye makeup if you opt for a dark lip colour like Gabriel, you want them to be the star of the show after all.
The combination of soft brown eyeshadow with a deep lip is guaranteed to pop without looking over the top.
Shimmer is a winner
You will not go wrong with a shimmery lid. Seriously, there's no time like Christmas to whack out the glitter on those beauts eyes of yours.
Go gold for a show-stopping look.
As we said, you can't go wrong with glitter - and if you're feeling a little fruity why not go for a statement colour? We are absolutely living for these purple vibes.
'Cause every party could do with a shiny purple Christmas fairy.
So there you have it, a Christmas party look to suit every makeup lover. Now the difficult part = choosing one to go with. Good luck!
