Easy Breezy Holiday Makeup

By Amy Rigsby | Effects Showcase

With the holiday season in full swing, my gift to you this year is a super easy way to achieve a classic holiday makeup look. BeFunky's Photo Editor offers a range of beauty and Touch Up tools that allows even the earliest beginner to go full glam in no time. Check out how I go from an everyday natural look to holiday party ready in just a few simple steps!

Flushed Cheeks

When it comes to a look that holds up in cold weather I always love the appearance of flushed cheeks. Thanks to the Blush tool in the Photo Editor I can choose the perfect pink shade to compliment my skin tone. Your blush should be applied to the apples of your cheeks, and you can adjust the strength so the color blends seamlessly onto the skin. It's also good to lower your brush hardness to give your photo a nice, soft blended effect.

Teeth Whiten

You can definitely expect to take more photos than normal when the holidays come around. With that being said, it can be terribly annoying to find out that your teeth aren't their brightest after you've already snapped your shot (damn you, red wine). Thankfully, the Teeth Whiten tool has got the quick fix you're looking for. Simply adjust the size of your brush and hardness to bring your pearly whites back to life!

Classic Holiday Lips

What says holiday makeup better than red lips?! The Lipstick tool allows you to choose your perfect shade from a custom palette. I like to apply the color and decrease the strength slightly to make the look well blended. You can also opt for a dark pink or berry shade for a festive look instead, or scour BeFunky's Pinterest for inspiration.

Eye Brightening Mascara

Lastly, it's important for your eyes to really pop! A quick fix for this is to simply choose the Mascara tool from within the Photo Editor. One swipe adds fullness and length to your natural lashes making your eyes the center of attention! You can also add multiple layers of this tool just as you would actual mascara—the choice is yours.
