Next-Level Holiday Beauty Inspo When You Want to Look Festive
Metallic Hair Tattoos
When celeb hairstylist Kristin Ess posted this photo of Lucy Hale we immediately fell in love with the pretty celestial look. As Ess told Teen Vogue
, all you have to do is "grab a pack of Scünci's shimmery metallic designs, cut them into strips, scatter them along your part, then douse with water." (It's also a great way to use those extra flash tattoos that have been laying around since your last music festival!)

Copper Lids and a Bold Red Lip
Gold Foil Hair
According to Sarah Lund, the Kevin Murphy stylist who created this look, it takes just a few steps to achieve this gold foil perfection. Apply hairspray where you want the foil to stick (she suggests the hairline or part line) and then place flecks randomly, patting in with an eyeshadow brush. Spray over everything again and allow to dry, then use the brush to lightly tap and drag the foil to break apart the pieces. Voila!
Pink and Gold Glittery Lips
While this might take more time than say, a swoop of eyeliner, the impact is well worth the investment. The makeup artist behind this epic ombre lip explains she used products from the MAC Nutcracker Sweet Christmas collection plus rose gold and gold glitter pigments. (No word on how it holds up against champagne and baked goods.)
Gold Metallic Liner
Metallic Silver Brows
Have you noticed a trend yet? Metallic everything is clearly in right now and this swipe of silver is an edgy way to do it if you don't want to look all dolled up.
