Looking for some virtual holiday party makeup tips this year? Let’s face it. The holidays are going to be different this year. We probably won’t be glamming up for the annual office holiday party or planning that big night out to celebrate the New Year. But that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate and still look fabulous! That’s right! We’re talking about a festive night in with a little help from digital tools like Zoom and Skype, to join us with our nearest and dearest. It also means you’ll still want to rock a sweet holiday look that keeps the spirit alive! We’re here to help with some stay-at-home makeup tips that will have you ready for your digital closeup in perfect holiday style.

Light it up

What’s a holiday without lights, right? This isn’t so much a makeup tip but it’s one that will give your makeup some help. We’re actually talking about the ambient lighting around the screen you’ll be partying through. To create the most flattering lighting for a digital view of your holiday self, consider investing in a beauty light or a selfie light you can attach to your screen. 

Start with a good foundation

Even if you don’t normally use foundation, it’s a must for evening out your complexion for a digital celebration. If you prefer a less heavy feel, just use a tinted moisturizer or a concealer where you most need it. Seal it in with a little loose powder to set it and minimize those pores.

Accentuate the positive

Add definition to your lips and lashes with a long-lasting mascara and lip liner. Create perfectly shaped eyebrows by filling them in with an eyebrow pencil. After all, you’ll want to showcase your main features.

Create some contour

Video can often make our faces look weirdly non-dimensional. So, use a little earthy-toned eye shadow under your eyes, in the hollows of your cheeks, and along your jawline to give your face a more dimensional, structured look.

Color up

A splash of color is a no-brainer for a holiday party no matter how it’s happening! Go for bold red lips and some rosy cheek stain that screams fa-la-la-la!!


Make the most of your holiday season by staying safe and using the power of technology to keep you close to your friends and family. As we head toward a new year, stay hopeful, and think about what’s next for your future. You can start by checking out the programs at Celebrity School of Beauty.
