Christmas parties may be being cancelled, but even Omicron can’t stop a stellar festive beauty look. Proving this point is Hailey Bieber, who recently enjoyed a short stay in London during which she showed off his-and-hers couple style with Justin and, more importantly, paid a visit to make-up artist Nikki Wolff.
Wolff, who is the woman to see for dreamy, soft glam make up, created a look that nodded to the festive season, without being too obvious. “Hailey wanted something fun and pretty, but comfortable – and she wanted to play around with color,” Wolff tells Vogue. “So I lined her eyes with a green pencil liner and then used an iridescent eyeshadow on her eyes – in the middle and inner corners – to create a multidimensional effect.” For a similar hue, look to Nars’s High-Pigment Longwear Eyeliner in Grafton Street.
The result is a perfect example of why experimenting with color around your eyes isn’t something to shy away from. Whether it’s forest green or a deep indigo, shades like this effortlessly enhance eye color, and during party season, lend an effect that is simultaneously fun and understated.
“To keep it flattering, add a warm eyeshadow tone – something peachy or pinky – into the eye socket,” advises Wolff. “It keeps the look flattering by tying it all together.” For that fluttery fan of lashes, Wolff applied individual lashes (her own collection with Sweed Lashes is second to none), and lots of mascara to define the eyes, but still keep it looking natural. “And then for the lips, Hailey’s choice was a muted, browny nude,” she adds.
Festive beauty inspo? Sorted.
