The holiday season is almost here! With traveling, shopping, and hanging out with friends and family, there’s no time for makeup looks that take hours. To celebrate your holidays properly and keep you feeling glam, we have a few fresh looks from our favorite YouTubers! These makeup gurus have a ton of tips for you to sport lightweight makeup that’s perfect for school or Thanksgiving dinner. The best part? They can all be done in less than 10 minutes!
1. Bethany Mota: Fast and Fabulous
To create Bethany’s lightweight look, start off by applying moisturizer and BB cream for a smooth base.
Brighten and define your eyes with an eyeshadow primer, adding a touch of white eyeshadow to the inner corners of the eyes for extra radiance. Pat on a neutral beige or champagne eye shadow to your lids and define them with a darker brown in the crease. Finish with a stroke of black liner and a coat of lash defining mascara!
(If you want to add a little more color to your look, lightly dust on a peach or coral blush along your cheekbones, and complete the look with a swipe of your favorite tinted lip balm.)
2. Andreas Choice: Easy and Bronzed
The core of Andrea’s quick makeup routine is a multipurpose, lightweight bronzer.
Start this look by applying face primer followed by blending a matte foundation. Then, take your bronzer and sweep it like an eyeshadow over your lids. Next, create depth and dimension with a dark brown eyeshadow in the crease of your eye out to the far corner. Pat on a shimmering golden eyeshadow to the inner corners to brighten your eyes, and finish with a few coats of lengthening mascara.
Next, dust on that same bronzer over your cheeks, jawline, forehead, and neck. Complete the look like Andrea by applying an SPF lip balm and patting that bronzer onto your lips with a clean finger. #HelloGoddess
3. Tanya Burr: Fresh and Pretty
Tanya’s incredibly wallet-friendly fresh makeup look is one we love. Remember, less can totally be more!
Start by applying a lightweight foundation to get a clean makeup base. Next, blend away any dark under eye circles, blemishes, or scars with a brightening concealer. Pro tip: Set the concealer under your eyes with powder to make sure it stays put all day long.
Then, use a brow pencil with light, thin strokes for a natural, bold brow. And make sure to blend out the color by combing through the hairs with a spoolie brush!
Now it’s time for eyes. Use an eyeshadow palette with champagne-toned colors to cover your eyelids. Then apply a couple coats of mascara on the upper lashes.
Pull the whole look together with a coral-hued lip balm and you’re done!
4. Zoella: Natural and Minimal
What would a list of makeup tutorials be without the adorable Zoella? Here’s how to get Zoella’s natural look using only a few products.
After moisturizing, cover up any redness, dark circles, or blemishes with your favorite concealer. Blend with your fingers and apply a mattifying powder to set. Next, brush a touch of shimmering blush to the apples of your cheeks to add a natural glow to your whole face.
Keep your eyes minimal with a pale pink or skin-toned eyeshadow swept over the eyelids and add a thin coat of pencil eyeliner to the upper lash line. Define your lashes with a coat of clear mascara for a truly natural look, or use waterproof black mascara for a bit more drama. Finish with a moisturizing lip balm for a hydrated pout all day long!
5. Wengie: 5 Minute Makeup
Wake up late? Need to touch up your makeup after a flight or an afternoon of gift shopping? Wengie’s 5-minute makeup look is just what you need!
Next (if you want!), define your brows. Use short strokes with a brow pencil following the natural shape of your brow and brush over with a spoolie to blend out the color.
Line your upper lid with a brown pencil, ending in a wingtip if desired. Then, blend the eyeliner out with a blending eye brush to soften the look and disguise any uneven lines. Curl your lashes and coat them with a light mascara for an easy touch of #glam.
You’re almost done, we promise! Dust on a bronzer with an angled face brush underneath the cheekbones, over temples, hairline, and jawline. Finally, glide a bright lip gloss over your lips!
