With Cara’s eyebrows, this makeup style is a big hit for anyone with darkly edged eyes, dusted with a smoky palette of eyeshadow shades, with the slightest hint of glitter. Keep the rest of the face paint to a minimum.

Think ice-queen with candy apple lips. Overdoing this look might venture into cartoonish territory – however, if you make the lips every so glossier than natural, and select a light shade of blue, it will simply tread the fine line between exciting and garish. It also matters how you dress it up.

Festive colors are usually on the brighter side of the spectrum, like jolly red, bright green and white – colors that need not necessarily look as welcoming on someone’s face. But by using a gradation technique around the eyes, and leaving the lip with a solid color, you’ll see how well they work.
