With December upon us in full swing, it can only mean one thing - get your party shoes on, ladies! We ensure you look your fabulous best this season with some beauty looks that are inspiring the POPxo team from our fave A-listers. From look-at-me hair to flawless makeup, which of these stars is your beauty muse this party season? Read on for some mega celeb beauty inspiration for the holidays. 'Tis The Season to shine after all!
You can’t blame us for having a girl crush on this scorcher, there is never a dull beauty moment when she makes an appearance. With this look, she kept her love for experimenting with funky lip shades to the minimum and went the classic route with a sexy red pout. DPad paired that with a thick, glamorous ponytail - one trick to make your ponytail look fuller is by splitting it into a small horizontal section and placing a small clip below the top section for an instant boost in volume and body. Use your fingers to tousle the hair on your crown for that slightly disheveled look and get ready to flaunt those killer collar bones and toned shoulders.
Ileana really got us to sit up and take notice during the promotions of her recent movie. A deep maroon pout, dark eye makeup and gorgeous waves are a sure shot way to turn heads wherever you go. Use a texturizing spray like Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturizing spray and use your fingers to tousle and scrunch your mane, finish off with a few spritzes of shine spray to bring some glossiness to your strands. It’s a look that is feminine, romantic and sultry all in one, plus it can suit anybody.
Working a flirty skirt was one of our fave stylistas, who changed up her usual fierce curls for a high bun and blunt bangs. She went fresh-faced and natural, which is always a refreshing change. A hint of colour to your cheeks and soft, nude lips is all you need to achieve this minimal style. Don’t you just love a pretty look without needing to put in too much extra effort and going overboard with the makeup?
Recreate Alia’s soft and simple party style by pairing your favourite LBD with half up and half down hair – it’s the simplest style to try when you’re bored of your ordinary look. Bold brows, rosy pink cheeks and a swipe of pretty pink across your lips are how you can get her look. Make sure to use a highlighter to get her youthful radiance, we like NYX Liquid Highlighter.
Huma also gives us an easy to achieve look with pretty side-swept locks. All you need to do is pin your hair away from one side to stir things up, rather than leaving it loose. It takes less than a minute and will bring a refreshing change to your usual look. Emulate her gorgeous bronzed glow and bright lips to bring oodles of glam and notch up your style. Shiseido Oil-Free bronzing powder is what you need for that attractive, sun-kissed radiance to turn heads at that next cocktail party.
Our fave star gone global, the gorgeous Freida Pinto has been grabbing attention with her newly cropped do. She’s definitely inspiring us to let go of our inhibitions and trade in our longer locks for an undeniably chic bob. You can always go in for a longer bob if you don’t want to go that short (aka the Lob!), trust us it provides for some easy, fuss-free style. All you need to pair it with is a deep maroon pout like Freida to channel some fresh style.
Keeping it simple but oh so pretty was Shraddha who worked a side bun with supreme flair. She kept the makeup to a minimum and went nude on the lips. Ms. Kapoor is a perfect example of how you don’t need to go OTT and going au naturel will never fail you, even when you’re dressed up in a sari. Her simplistic yet beautiful approach was such a refreshing change, don’t you agree?
