Holiday Makeup Inspired by the Stars

Are you ready for all of those holiday parties? Try some of these celebrity-inspired makeup looks!

Amy Adams

Amy Adams make-up is totally enchanting and appropriate for any holiday party. Simply apply a tinted moisturizer to achieve an even complexion, some mascara to enhance the eyes, and a bright red lipstick like M.A.C. Lipstick in Russian Red ($14.50 at M.A.C.) to make your teeth appear super white!

Blake Lively

Blake Lively looks beautiful with the brown-based neutral make up on her eyes, cheeks, and lips. Try MAC Powder Blush in Gingerly ($18.50 at MAC) to add warmth to your face.

Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Cole looks like she just got back from vacation with her bronzy skin. Unfortunately most of us will not be seeing a beach for months so we have to fake it. Try Nars Highlighting/Bronzing Blush Duo in Orgasm/Laguna ($39 at Sephora).

Christina Hendricks

Christina Hendricks has the perfect soft smokey eye! Try Dior 5-Colour Designer All-In-One Artistry Palette in Amber Design ($58 at Sephora) to recreate this look. Use a neutral color all over the lid, a dark shadow in the crease, and a light shimmery color in the inner corner of the eye and under the brow.

Eva Mendes

A nude lip looks great on everyone and is a great compliment to a dark smokey eye. Eva Mendes wore a light, icy pink lipstick that brightened up her whole face. Try e.l.f. Mineral Lipstick in Pouty Petal ($5 at e.l.f.).

Megan Fox

Megan Fox always has strong, perfectly groomed eyebrow. It is important to shape and fill in your brow because they frame your face. So tweeze, wax, or thread, then fill them in with a powder or a pencil like Maybelline Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil ($5.49 at Drugstore).

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum is totally rocking dark sultry eye makeup. Rim your eyes with a dark eyeliner like 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Zero ($17 at Ulta), then add a light shimmery color to the inner corners of your eyes. This acts as a highlighter so you don’t look like a raccoon!

Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson has a beautiful berry lip perfect for the holiday season! Try Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstain in Cranberry Crush ($6.99 at Ulta) to ensure your color lasts all night!

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston has incredibly flawless skin. Try Guerlain Lingerie De Peau Invisible Skin Fusion Foundation SPF 20 ($56 at Sephora) to get a smooth, even complexion.

Jennifer Lopez

Is the cold weather is making you glum and a tad bit pastey? Well then it is the perfect time to get your a faux glow on! Exfoliate your skin then apply self tanner like St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse ($34.48 at Asos). Don't worry you'll look more like Jennifer Lopez not an Oompa Loompa.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry knows how to have fun with make-up. This bronzy eye is super easy to achieve. Try Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Amber Blaze ($6.50 at Mary Kay) to spread all over the lid and the bottom lashes.

Leighton Meester

Leighton Meester exudes natural beauty. All you need is mascara, eyeliner, and some concealer to cover any imperfections. Try the award winning Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer ($70 at Neiman Marcus). It provides full coverage and is moisturizing.

Marissa Miller

Marissa Miller has a beautiful California girl glow. To get your face looking fresh and dewy like Miller’s, make sure you exfoliate and moisturize to prevent dry, flakey skin. You can also try a primer like Murad Skin Perfecting Primer Dewy Finish ($35 at Sephora) which can be worn alone or under your foundation.

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus has incredible make-up that is easy to replicate for New Years Eve! Play up your eyes by adding false lashes, wing out your eyeliner, and apply shimmer shadow all over the lid. Try VS Brilliant Shimmer Shadow in Silverdust ($10 at Victoria’s Secret).

Natalie Portman

To rock a fuschia lip like Natalie Portman, make sure you line your lips first! This will stop the color from bleeding on to your skin. Try Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner Pencil in Fuschia ($17 at Sephora).

Rachel McAdams

Rachel McAdams has a pop of pink on her cheeks that makes her look ever-so sweet. Try dusting Cargo Blush in Catalina ($26 at Drugstore) on the apples of your cheeks. Always smile while applying blush to achieve the most natural look!

Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon’s skin looks absolutely radiant but not overly shimmery. Try using a highlighter such as Benefit High Beam ($24 at Macy’s) to enhance your best features. You can apply it on top of the cheekbones, down the nose, the inner corners of the eyes, under the brow bone, and on the cupid’s bow of the lip.


Rihanna’s eyes look absolutely stunning! Try Mark Mini Mark It Stick Hook Up Stick for Eyes in Green Opal ($6 at Mark by Avon) all over your lid to make your eyes dazzle!
