Trend Tuesday: How To Get The 'Holly-Day' Make-Over

'Holly-Day' Glamour At Michael Kors

It’s the first week of December and we’re feeling rather festive on the Grazia Beauty desk, and in this week’s issue we’re celebrating by taking a chic approach to party make-up with the trend for ‘Holly-day’ make up.  Looking to Hollywood sirens and the catwalk for our inspiration, brands have gone uber sophisticated, with collections of extravagant, and decadent products that will make you want to Instagram your dressing table every morning. 

So the key to getting this look?  It’s all down to wearing the shade red.  Whether on your nails or your lips, a classic red hue will transport your look into retro glamour.  All the luxury brands have stuck to classic pillar box red shades, cleverly housing the products in heritage style packaging.

Essential 'Holly-Day' Glamour Tools

From Dior’s Diorific Lipstick in Diorling £25 to Guerlain’s Liu collection, these products were made to be seen. 

For everday ‘Holly-Day’ glamour, dip into the trend with classic red nails.  Revlon’s polish in Revlon Red  £6.49 is always a winner.  With just a hint of this classic shade, you can upgrade a party outfit in an instant. 

When it comes to pulling off the catwalk version of the trend though, you have to commit to the lip.  At Michael Kors, the girls sported a fresh, rosy, red lip with complementing, ruddy cheeks perhaps not so wearable everyday so ditch the blusher and amp up your pout with a rich red lipstick and top it off with a gloss.  Easy.  Perfect ‘Holly-Day’ make up in a quick slick of a lippy!
