It's the most wonderful time of the year! It goes without saying that we deeply cherish the quality time spent with family and friends, cheery decorations, and bundling up with a cup of hot cocoa to watch our favorite holiday movies. But let's get real: It's definitely the season of new makeup—makeup that's just begging for attention.

Whether you're staying in or going out (safely!) this holiday season, we've got you covered when it comes to makeup inspiration. Just follow the easy how-tos below, featuring our limited edition holiday products as well as items from our permanent collection.

Head-Turning Holiday Looks Using CLOVE AND HALLOW


The makeup equivalent of throwing on your favorite sweater: cute, low-key, and comfy.

Pretty Cozy Holiday Look Using CLOVE AND HALLOW
  1. Spot-conceal any problem areas with Conceal + Correct: under-eyes, blemishes, and any redness.

  2. Use your fingers to blend a peachy-pink cream blush, like our Pressed Velvet Cream Blush in Skyline, into the apples of the cheeks.

  3. Swipe Cashmere, our shimmery rosé Crushed Chrome Pigment, across lids.

  4. Apply a few coats of FlexLash Mascara.

  5. Choose your preferred shade of Tinted Lip Mask: Petal, the perfect rosy pink, or Mulled, a deep berry hue that's next-level on deeper skin tones.



Add equal parts "vamp" and "retro." Stir until evenly mixed.

CLOVE AND HALLOW Pin-Up Meets Punk Makeup
  1. Apply a base of Liquid Skin Tint and conceal under-eyes and blemishes with Conceal + Correct.

  2. Buff Bronzing Powder under cheekbones, on your forehead near your hairline, and on your jawline to create a sculpted look.

  3. Use highlighter or a dewy oil, like The Everything Oil, to add a glow to cheekbones.

  4. Use a fluffy shadow brush, like Shade + Blend Dual-Sided Eye Brush, to blend a camel-colored eyeshadow into the creases of your lids. (Sunrise Pressed Pigment Palette has the perfect hue!)

  5. Apply Crushed Chrome Pigment in Cashmere to the lids.

  6. Working from the inner corners of your eyes to the outer corners, use Line + Define Liquid Eyeliner to paint on a cat eye.

  7. Apply FlexLash Mascara.

  8. Outline your lips with a deep berry wine color, like Lip Velvet in Sangria. Fill in and let dry.



A stare this fiery red is hot, hot, hot on every skin tone.

CLOVE AND HALLOW Five-Alarm Eye Makeup Look
  1. Start with foundation and concealer: Pressed Mineral Foundation and Conceal + Correct.

  2. Dab a creamy, deep pink blush shade, like Pressed Velvet Cream Blush in Royalty, on the apples of the cheeks, then blend upward toward your temples.

  3. Apply Crushed Chrome Pigment in Firecracker, a metallic burgundy, all over eyelids, blending above your creases.

  4. Rim the eyes with Line + Define Liquid Eyeliner, then coat lashes in FlexLash Mascara.

  5. Swipe on a juicy, light pink lip gloss, like Lip Glaze in Candied Hearts.



Sparkling gunmetal shadow and fresh, nude lips? Prepare to have all eyes on you.

CLOVE AND HALLOW Smoke Show Makeup Look
  1. Face makeup first! Use a brush or sponge to apply Liquid Skin Tint, then disguise imperfections with Conceal + Correct.

  3. Pat Pressed Velvet Cream Blush in Everlast, a rosy pink, onto the apples of the cheeks and blend.

  4. Apply Crushed Chrome Pigment in Starry Eyed all over lids. Use a flat panel brush for extra intensity.

  7. Set this dramatic makeup look in place all day with Lock + Rock Makeup Mist.
