Don’t fall into the trap that holiday makeup only has to look one way. It may not carry the avante-garde looks we get from Halloween but there’s still room to try something new. Additionally, this season lets you maximize the shimmer and shine without looking out of place. There are six new Festive Makeup looks that range from a classic red lip to glossy glam with gemstones.

  • Go to the Makeup Tab on the Main Menu
  • Scroll through the categories and choose the Festive category
  • Choose the look you want to use
  • Adjust the intensity with the toggle slide bar
  • Tap the checkmark to save your edit
