Written by Caroline Davies

There are plenty of reasons to get excited for Christmas but here at Nutrimetics HQ, make-up always tops the list. Between summer BBQs, festive getaways, family time and catching up on all the socialising many of us have missed because of the pandemic, it's a great excuse to go all out. 

 

Whether you’re dressing to the nines or simply showing off a different festive look to your closest family and friends, we have all the beauty inspiration you need to try something new. Plus, let’s not forget, doing your make-up beautifully is the self-care treat you deserve for the ultimate confidence boost.

 

Ideal for party season and new year’s eve make-up, we love how many striking looks you can create with our NEW nc Complete Colour Collection. With glimmering summer hues that work perfectly no matter what your skin tone, we encourage you to get creative this Christmas. (And don’t forget this set also makes the dream gift for any make-up lovers in your life, too).

Monotone make-up

Try the hottest summer trend and match your eye shadow to your lips. These pretty shades of rosé pair perfectly with your holiday tan. This is your perfect look for a boxing day picnic and so versatile, too.

Eyes: nc Beauty Eye Play Palette 5.4g – #5 ‘Lovely’ (13735)

Lips: nc Beauty Comfort Shine Lipstick 2.1g – Blush Pearl (14635)

Cheeks: nc Beauty Blush & Highlighter Palette 10.8g – #3 'Sunshine' (12378)

TIP: Matching colours really pull your look together - but focus on making one feature the hero (like the lips, here). You can experiment with different textures of shimmer and matte in the same hue, too.

Golden glow

Say yes to balmy evenings, bronzed skin and smouldering golden sunset eyes! Christmas calls for breaking both the 'eyes or lips' rule, so go all out. You can turn up the heat on your summer soirées with these rich warm gold and terracotta shades.

Eyes: nc Beauty Eye Play Palette 5.4g – #6 ‘Darling’ (13735)

Lips: nc Beauty Comfort Shine Lipstick 2.1g – Honey Peach (14634)

Cheeks: nc Beauty Blush & Highlighter Palette 10.8g – #4 'Harmony' (12378)

TIP: The dewy shimmer shades in nc Beauty Eye Play Palette will make your face feel fresh. If shimmer all over your eyelids feels too intense, focus it just upon your inner corners.

Minimal magic

Who said party make-up has to exclude low-key beauty? You can't go wrong with subtle metallic eyes, honey lips, and plenty of highlighter. If want to glow without stealing the show this season, this au naturel colour pairing is perfect for softer looks.

 Eyes: nc Beauty Eye Play Palette 5.4g – #4 ‘Kind’ (13735)

Lips: nc Beauty Comfort Shine Lipstick 2.1g – Honey Peach (14634)

Cheeks: nc Beauty Blush & Highlighter Palette 10.8g – #2 'Divine' (12378)

 TIP: Make lips feel understated by gently blotting — not swiping nc Beauty Comfort Shine Lipstick on, for a simple flushed effect.

Christmas Classic

Chic understated taupes and pinks make for easy Christmas glamour. Fresh skin, subtle liner and soft lips make this look the perfect party season pairing. Choose these colours for your Christmas lunch.

Eyes: nc Beauty Eye Play Palette 5.4g – #3 ‘Sweet’ (13735)

Lips: nc Beauty Comfort Shine Lipstick 2.1g – Blush Pearl (14635)

Cheeks: nc Beauty Blush & Highlighter Palette 10.8g – #1 'Radiant' (12378)

TIP: This look works best with ‘invisible skin’, so choose natural, medium coverage and lots of hydration with nc Perfecting Oil-Free Foundation.

Disco cool

New Year’s Eve make-up is all about fun, so switch up your traditional smoky eye with some disco pink and gold! Dress up your features with warm, terracotta and bold pink shadow rimming your lower lashes. Pink high shine lips will really get you in the disco mood.

Eyes: nc Beauty Eye Play Palette 5.4g – #2 ‘Honey’ (13735)

Lips: nc Beauty Comfort Shine Lipstick 2.1g – Blush Pearl (14635)

Cheeks: nc Beauty Blush & Highlighter Palette 10.8g – #3 'Sunshine' (12378)

TIP: Skip harsh contouring and use the blush in the nc Beauty Blush & Highlighter Palette to gently sculpt your features.
