The latest and greatest festive beauty trends

From glitter lips to frosty cheeks

Gold leaf

If the rise of hair gems can attest to anything, it's that hair adornments will never not be popular. Lately, gold leaf has been cropping up across the fashion scene - and it transitions perfectly into the festive season. Just check out Zara's latest hair range... Gold is it, we're telling you.

Glitter lips

What could be more festive than a gold ol' dose of glitter? Reminiscent of a frosted candy cane, just don't wear this look while you're eating! 

Bow makeup

Taking a leaf from the coquette aesthetic, bows are the ultimate accessory to any look. Don't just place them in your hair, take your dedication that step further with a dedicated makeup look - just like a freshly wrapped present under the tree.

Christmas tree nails

We can always get behind a good nail theme. And this year, the celebrity nail artists are opting for something more on the nose. We just love this Christmas tree design from @iramshelton.

Sugarplum fairy

Would it really be a trend piece if we didn't include a dose of Hailey Bieber? This festive season, she's forgoing her signature 'strawberry girl makeup' for something a little more frosty - which she has dubbed the 'sugarplum fairy look'.

Vinyl red lips

Red lips for Christmas, how original... Before you turn all Miranda Priestly on us, hear us out. The glossy, lacquered lip look is all the rage on TikTok - and it's so popular it has a name. Latex lips are your present-day spin on the classic festive red which simply involves applying a matte liquid lipstick and topping with a clear gloss. We love!
