It’s Christmas time again; a time for presents and a time to party. So let us party in style on this illuminating occasion with tips from Ms. Aakriti Kochar, Beauty and Makeup Expert, Oriflame India.

Shimmering it Out
For the festive season, the best way to bring glow to your face is by adding a dash of  shimmer. Add gold/silver shimmer to the eyes in the evenings, when stepping out to celebrate the festival or heading out for a party.

The Festive Glow
Using bronzers and highlighters will make your skin glow making it as wonderful as the glow of Christmas. Bronzers not only add color, but also define your cheeks  to highlight your best  features.

Brightening the Eyes

If you are not too much of a shimmer person, add slight white / golden shimmer eye shadow to the inner corner of the eyes. This brightens up the eyes instantly and gets you ready to head out.
Be Bold
Defining brows is an essential part of grooming you face. It helps in framing the face well, automatically adding boldness.

Lining up the Festivities
Playing with eye liners is a good idea this season. Wear from very sleek to thick black/ interestingly shaped eye liners and pick the color red for your lips to relate to the festive color. Bronzed skin, groomed brows with these do justice to this look.

A Dramatic Christmas
Christmas is incomplete without drama. The perfect way to add drama to your look is by wearing a dark red lipstick. Keep in mind to highlight one strong feature in your face. It could either be eyes or lips, etc. Don’t overdo the make-up as it may end up looking gaudy. 

Playing with the Shadows
If you like to experiment with eye shadows, wear gold/ silver eye shadow in combination with purple, blue or green in horizontal or vertical stripes and blend it well. Wear a thin eye liner, lots of mascara to make your eyes stand out. Neutral skin/nude lips with gloss will complete the look.

Reflecting Light
We see lots of shimmer and glitter in the décor during festivities. So why not glitter up on the eyes as well – wear gold, silver, white shimmer based eye shadow on eyes with thin eye liner. Give the skin a dewy and healthy finish, such that it reflects back the light and the joy of the festival.

Spellbinding Lashes
Someone who wants to dramatize their look can wear false lashes. There is a wide variety available -  colored, studded, gold/ silver, long, dramatic or volumized; that leave everyone spellbound, just like the Christmas carols.

Slick and Sleek
When going dramatic with the makeup, wearing a sleek high ponytail gives an amazingly glamorous and a slick look.

The Bold and the Beautiful
One can also wear a signature bold eye liner and open their hair with soft wavy curls to look mesmerizingly beautiful.

A Bun for Everyone
Tie your hair into a chic bun at the back or on the side with a bold lip color to look fabulous for those elegant dinners and parties.

A Part of Christmas
For an even more glamorous look, part the hair to the side in open wavy curls and let it fall on one shoulder. The look is complete with a bright red lipstick.

Bouncing with Joy
When opting for subtle makeup,  blow dry your hair and give it bouncy layers. The key is to still make the face glow. One can also play with different kinds of blushes.  Creamy and gel based blushes are a hit for this weather as they add the needed gloss/ shine.

Getting Creative
Paint your nails in bright tones of reds or get interesting nail arts with graphics, studs, etc, as per your choice.

Follow these easy steps to become a Christmas Goddess and take everyone’s breath away.
