Apply your go-to primer all over your eye lid up to your brow bone then line the upper lashline with a black eyeliner pencil. Finish this stunning look with your favorite glitter eyeliner.

Don’t use glitter eyeliners if you’re wearing contact lenses, by the way. The glitter might get into your eye and scratch. Not a good look, and bad for your eyes!

Warm glittery Thanksgiving make-up look

Apply your favorite primer all over your lid up to your brow bone then blend in the beige eyeshadow with a fluffy brush. Next, apply the dark brown shadow in the crease of your eyelid using a fluffy brush and blend it out so that it has no harsh lines.

Black Thanksgiving eye make-up

For another simple but stunning eye make-up look, you’ll need some black eyeshadow (matte would be the best option here), black eyeliner, and black mascara.

I know, this look is not for beginners, but it will certainly make your eyes the topic of conversation around the Thanksgiving table!

Line your upper lashline with the brown eyeliner pencil then use three or four colors to create the turkey make-up, starting from the outside corner of your eye inwards towards the middle.

Purple smokey eyes

If you want a more glam look for your Thanksgiving celebrations, go for purple smokey eyes. This eye make-up will look great with a glamorous dress and some killer heels! All you need is some black eyeliner, dark purple eyeshadow, light purple eyeshadow and mascara. First you apply your favorite primer all over your lid. Start with the lightest colors (the light purple) and apply all over your moving eye lid. Done? Great, let’s take the next step in this make-up look: adding more of the dark purple and blend, blend, blend!

You’d better start with a tiny bit on your fluffy brush and keep building. A smokey eye can take a while to make and you really don’t want to rush things. Finish off your look with black mascara and you’re done!

Adele inspired cat eye

Adele is back and she brought her iconic eye make-up, too. But how do you create her iconic looks?

All you need is some black liquid eyeliner, a thin brush, and lots of practice! Start by drawing a very thin line on your upper lash line and make sure that it’s as close to the roots of your lashes as possible. Extend the liner towards the outer corner of your eye and make a small flick at the end. Keep in mind that the thinner your line, the cuter this look will be. Finish off with some black mascara and you’re good to go!

And remember, the higher the flick, the closer to God!

Bronze smokey eyes

This is another smokey eye make-up look, but this time you’ll be using bronze eyeshadows. This look is perfect for a more glam event or party and it’s really easy to create!

You’ll need some matte bronzer, shimmery bronzer, dark brown eyeshadow, light brown eyeshadow, black eyeliner, and mascara. Apply your favorite primer all over your lid up to your brow bone then blend in the black eyeshadow with a fluffy brush. Next, line your lash line with a dark brown eyeliner pencil and apply mascara on your top lashes. Take a blending brush and mix together the matte bronzer and shimmery bronzer . Apply this all over your lid and up to the crease of your eye. Finally, apply the light brown eyeshadow in the inner corner of your eye and blend out. Et voila! You’re ready to party!

Nude eyes with a pop of color cut crease

This is another really simple look that will never go out of style. You’ll need some nude eyeshadow, a pop of color (I chose blue), mascara and blush. Apply your favorite primer all over your lid up to your brow bone then apply the nude eyeshadow with a blending brush. Take a small amount of blue eyeshadow on a fluffy brush and apply it in your crease. Blend it a little bit, but nog too much.

Pop of color in your inner corner

If you want to add a pop of color to your look without going too crazy, try adding some bright eyeshadow in the inner corner of your eye. This is a really simple and fast way to make your eyes look brighter and more awake! You’ll need some pink, orange, yellow or blue eyeshadow for this look (whichever you like the mosts or suits your Thanksgiving outfit).

Just apply it in the inner corner of your eye and blend it out with a brush. If you want, you can also apply some nude colored eyeliner in your waterline to make your eyes look even bigger!

Taupe eye look

We’ll finish this list of eye make-up looks with a taupe eye look. This is perfect for those who want to wear something subtle and natural. All you need are some taupe eyeshadow, dark grey eyeliner pencil, white eyeliner pencil, and mascara. Apply your favorite eye primer all over your lid up to your brow bone. Next, use a taupe eyeshadow all over your lid, and line your upper lash line with a dark grey eyeliner pencil. In the inner corner of your eye, use a white eyeliner pencil to highlight and then blend it out. Finally, apply some mascara.

Thanksgiving lip make-up looks

Classic red lip

If you’re not feeling the nude lips, try a classic red one. It’s perfect for any holiday party and it will never go out of style!

You’ll need some nice matte lipstick in your favorite color (red is always good) and an eyeliner if you want to line your eyes or make them look bigger. Apply your favorite primer all over your lid up to your brow bone then line your lips with a red lip liner. Apply the lipstick and blot with a tissue. Finally, apply some transparent lip gloss on top for some extra shine!

Nude lips with a pop of color

For this look, you’ll need some nude lipstick and a really bright or matte eyeshadow. You can add eyeliner if you want to make your eyes look bigger. Apply your favorite primer all over your lid up to your brow bone then apply the nude lip color (or even go bare). Take an angled

Nude lips

How to create perfect nude lips? It’s really simple and all you need is a nice nude lip shade, some matte bronzer (or blush), your favorite primer and concealer. Apply your primer then use the matte bronzer or blush to contour your lips . Line them with a nude pencil if desired, apply the lipstick and blot it with a tissue for ten seconds.

Dark brown lips

For a darker look, try dark brown lips. This is perfect for those who want to go against the traditional red lip trend.

You’ll need some nice matte lipstick in your favorite color (dark brown), and a matching lip pencil. Apply the lip liner and feather it slightly. Next, you apply your lipstick, blot with a tissue for ten seconds then apply some transparent gloss on top if you want a more shiny lip look for Thanksgiving.

Pink lip stain

One of the biggest make-up trends for 2022? The pink lip stain. This is perfect for those who want a really natural lip look and it’s super easy to apply.

You’ll need some light pink lip stain, your favorite primer and concealer. Apply the primer then use the light pink lip stain to color in your lips. Feather it outwards for a more natural look then blot with a tissue. If you want a really crisp line, apply some concealer around your lips. That’s it! You’re done!

Nineties lipstick

For a really retro look, try nineties lipstick. This is perfect for those who want to add a pop of color to their Thanksgiving outfit!

You’ll need some brown or dark red lipstick (whatever you like the most), and an lip pencil in dark red or brown. Line your lips (don’t try to overline too much with this look) and fill in your lips with your lipstick of choice. Don’t blend the lipliner into the lipstick, you’ll want the color distinction!

Ombre lips

One of the newer trends in lip make-up is ombre lips. This is perfect for those who want to add a bit of color and dimension to their look.

You’ll need two shades of lipstick, your favorite primer and concealer. Apply the primer then use the light pink lip stain to color in your lips. Feather it outwards for a more natural look then blot with a tissue. If you want a really crisp line, apply some concealer around your lips. Take the darker lipstick shade and apply it in the middle of your bottom lip. Use a brush to blend it outwards for an ombre effect. Blot with a tissue and you’re done!

Concealer lips

This is perfect for those who want a really simple and fast lip look. Yup, this Nillies trend is totally coming back: enter the concealer lips. Not with real concealer tho, that will dry your lips out like crazy. Use a very pale shade of lipstick instead, like Charlotte Tilbury’s Kim K West or MAC’s Fleshpot.

Lipliner and gloss

In need of a fool-proof lip look for Friendsgiving or Thanksgiving? Try lipliner and gloss!

You’ll need your favorite lip liner, some transparent lipgloss (any color will do). Apply the liner then fill in your lips with it. Feather outwards slightly for a more natural look then blot with a tissue to remove excess moisture before applying the gloss on top of the lipliner.
