Understated Makeup Looks From TikTok to Wear to Your Next Family Gathering

The holidays are the perfect time to show off your makeup skills.

But just because Christmas and New Year's are upon us doesn't mean your look has to be all about glitter glamorous reds, greens, silvers and golds. Many of us would actually prefer to take a more neutral approach when it comes to holiday makeup—especially when it comes to low-key hangouts with family. Now sure where to start? Here are some of our favorite understated looks from TikTok to try out.

Too Faced Christmas in London

Alissia is a Toronto-based makeup artist, and we adore the beautiful rose gold look she creates in this video, courtesy of the Too Faced Christmas in London Collection. It's a beautiful holiday look that shows you don't need to incorporate holiday colors to celebrate in full swing. If you're looking for a classy approach, this is one to go for.

Bold Lips and Bronzed Eyes

Hayley is another makeup artist who demonstrates how easy it is to go from basic to glam with the right simple makeup. Using her favorite Charlotte Tilbury products, she pairs a neutral eye look with a nice burgundy-red lip to make a gorgeously festive look.
