7 Festive Makeup Looks That Sleigh

festive makeup looks the grinch makeup

Get it…SLAY/SLEIGH?!! Ha Ha!! Just a little holiday humor.

Sorry for the slightly grainy photo of me doing Grinch makeup on my 9 yr old son Walker.  I took it from my husbands Insta story and it got fuzzy in transition!  But I couldn’t go this Christmas without sharing how good his makeup turned out…despite the struggle with keeping him still for an hour 🙂  This was my try at over the top fantasy makeup for the holidays!

But now onto the makeup looks you would ACTUALLY wear without turning yourself into an ugly green villain!

This holiday season is the PERFECT time to wear those festive makeup looks you’ve always wanted to try but didn’t feel like a normal Tuesday in May felt like the right time to don glitter eye shadow!

Since I’m sure your social calendars are filled with get-togethers heading into the New Year, you’re going to need to come up with some original + festive beauty looks to complement your cool holiday outfit.  So I’ve done all the legwork in compiling a few options for your makeup inspo!
