How to Create a Mint Makeup Look That Screams Holiday Fun

We’re the first to swoon over a classic berry lip or shimmering smoky eye for winter, but we’re also always on the lookout for more unique holiday party-ready looks. Mint makeup is the perfect refresher; it’s playful, flattering and surprisingly easy to wear, especially if you follow this cool graphic eyeliner tutorial by makeup artist and beauty influencer Dana Renée. Keep reading for her breakdown of the ultimate pastel holiday look.

STEP 1:

Draw a Wing

Start by drawing on a thick wing using the NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Eye Pencil in the shade Macaroon, a vibrant, creamy mint green.

STEP 2:

Set With Shimmer

Using the Urban Decay Naked Cyber Eyeshadow Palette and a small flat brush, press the shade Static on top of the mint liner. Static is a sheer, frosty shade flecked with iridescent blue pearl.

STEP 3:

Make the Inner Corner Stand Out

Line your waterline and extend just past the inner corner of your eye with the Jumbo Pencil. “It creates a really pretty cat eye, and the mint will really make your eye color pop,” Renée says.

STEP 4:

Add Lashes

To finish off the eyes, Renée recommends applying a strip of false lashes that are fluffy but not too dramatic, so you can still see your killer eyeliner skills peeking through behind them.

STEP 5:

Apply Blush

A cool, pink-toned blush, such as the Lancôme Blush Subtil in Aplum, gives your cheeks a flattering wintery flush. Apply it to the apples of your cheeks for a natural, rounded look, or to the tops of the cheekbones for more definition.

STEP 6:

Add a Red Lip

For an ombré lip like Renée created here, start by tracing your lip line with a dark red pencil, such as the Maybelline New York Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liner in Brick Red. Then, fill in the center of your lips using a bright, blue-based red. We love the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Reds of Worth Satin Lipstick in Successful Red.
