Easy-To-Do Makeup Looks You Could Probably Ace With Eyes Closed

The party season is just around the corner and that just means over-the-top eye makeup looks, fun accessories and bold lipstick shades. But if you prefer something more effortless and fuss-free yet, still holiday-appropriate, then take cues from the Fall/Winter 2018 runways. Here, four trends we are definitely sporting this festive season.
#1: DIY Topknot (Philosophy di Lorenzo)
No, it’s not your typical messy bun or slick back ponytail. It is one of the easiest of up-dos that’s equal parts messy, elegant and chic all at the same time, ticking off all our boxes for any quick festive hairstyle. To achieve the look, gather your tresses and tie it up into a high ponytail (make sure it’s super neat and tidy on the front) before twisting it into a bun, leaving the ends out. #1: DIY Topknot (Chanel)
#2: Naturally textured eyebrows (Off White)
Having your brows #onpoint or #onfleek has been a constant trend all over Instagram but now, the runways are going for a more natural and undone look compared to the usual neater version. What you need to recreate the look: just brow gel. It’s that simple. #2: Naturally textured eyebrows (Off-White)
#3: Contrasting colours on eyes (Christian Siriano)
When it comes to eye makeup, complementing colours that are easy to blend together are usually more common (or if you prefer something simpler, using a single shade is probably routine for you) but this season, contrasting colours on the eyes are everywhere. And plus, it is a perfect party makeup look. #3: Contrasting colours on eyes (Tibi)
#4: Low key contour (Alexander Wang)
Not overdone and not undone, bronzers are strategically and subtly placed (cheekbones and nearer to the cheeks) for a more natural contour while doubling up as a blusher. #4: Low key contour (Tibi)
