Need Some Makeup Inspiration For the Festive Party Season? Here's 14 Celebrity Looks to Get You Started
The festive season is upon us, and after an abysmal Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year's Eve last year spent at home in jumpers and joggers (anyone else cheers their neighbours from their window?), we're ready to get dressed up and go out. Parties, dinners, nights out on the town, whatever the event, we can't wait to pick out an outfit and break out some of shimmery, sparkly, and colourful eyeshadows and lipsticks that have been sitting at the bottom of our makeup bag for a while. But what to do with them is the question.
To get some inspiration for the festive party season, we looked at back at some of our favourite celebrity makeup looks of the year — the sparklier and more dramatic the better. There's Dua Lipa's icy purple shadow that she wore to the Grammys, as well as all of the three-dimensional crystal eye makeup moments from the 2021 Met Gala. And for people who prefer something on the subtler side, or who like a more classic makeup look, don't worry — we've got that, too, from Clara Amfo's teal eyeliner at the BAFTAs to Mabel's '90s-inspired glam at the Brit Awards, and all the red lipstick ideas in between.
