Christmas holiday beauty tips

The holidays are a time for celebration and renewal, and your beauty routine is no exception. Experiment with new looks, try out those runway trends you thought were too fancy and glitter up!

We spoke to Marie Yang, founder of MarieNatie Cosmetics, about what the hot trends are for the holidays, and what you can do to instantly update your look.

"The Holidays in the makeup world is about being more bold and adding more sparkle to your normal everyday makeup," she said.

Her must-haves for the season?

"Silver and gold shimmers are must-haves for the Holidays. Purple shades are in for this season. Use dark purple eye shadow shades and highlighter shades to create the smoky eye."

You can also go for bright lips, another F/W '12 trend. Just don't try both at the same time.

If you're running late for the upteenth holiday party on your calendar, keep it simple. "An easy trick is to use glitter eyeliner and to dab silver or gold loose shadow glitter on the corner of your eyes," Yang says.

In the event of a severe beauty emergency - i.e. your casual boyfriend has suddenly invited you to Christmas dinner with his family - bust out your trusty old eye liner and trace a cat eye. A few strokes of black kohl and voilà!

Still at a loss? We've got the rundown for Marie Yang's favorite holiday look, step by step.
