Look Flawless: How to Apply Makeup for Denver Holiday Photos

Monty Nuss

There is no time like the holidays to get all dolled up, so why not use your Denver holiday photo session as a chance to show off your festive makeup! Denver photography studio Monty Nuss Photography has some seasonal trends that will look great at any holiday party or on print!

  • Red lips– Nothing says “it’s the most wonderful time of the year” like a vibrant red lip! This bold statement matches nearly any outfit and setting. Make sure that you skip sticky glosses and instead opt for a long-lasting lipstick or stain.
  • Glitter– Whether it is ornaments, garland, cards or even your makeup, the holidays and glitter go hand-in-hand.   Incorporate sparkles in your festive look with your eyeliner, nail polish, eye shadow or a light dusting of golden highlight. And don’t forget that a holiday party is not an excuse to use enough shimmer to pass as a human disco ball à la Ke$ha – glitter is best in moderation.
  • False lashes– Amp up your holiday look with some drama by applying false eyelashes. Long, luscious lashes can really open up your eyes for a glamorous appearance. The over-exaggeration created by falsies makes them a great idea for your Denver holiday pictures!
