Our makeup is just as important as the gifts and the Christmas dinner on the big day itself, so make sure you get it right! In today's blog post we bring you a little inspiration with this gorgeous Christmas makeup look.

Festive Tip 1: Glow.

There's a reason why we have gold tinsel around MUA Offices this December, they make everything look beautifully glowing! The same is true for highlighting makeup. To keep your skin glowing this Christmas, sweep your favourite highlighter from the MUA Highlighter range over your cheekbones, below your brow bone and on the inner corner of your eyes and over your cupid's bow.

Festive Tip 2: Add Glitter.

After all, we love glitter and the holiday season is the perfect excuse to express that love. It's a look that should simply act as a subtle touch of facial jewellery. Simply press cosmetic glitter over Pro-Base eye primer or existing eye shadow. Karla used the Burning Embers Palette on her eyes, finished with a touch of gold glitter. Gorgeous!

Festive Tip 3: Daringly Dark Lips.

Blackcurrant, burgundy, plum and claret - this season's favourite lipstick hues are dark and fabulous! Don't be fearful about going over to the dark side - a well-chosen currant hue is surprisingly flattering for this party season. Karla is wearing our new Velvet Lip Lacquer in shade "Curious". Or maybe try "Panache" for a slighter lighter hue, this is another NEW shade in our darker range of Velvet Lip Lacquers.

Our top tip - Scrub your lips gently with a toothbrush & Vaseline to get rid of any dry skin before applying the Velvet Lip Lacquers to ensure smooth kissable lips.
