One Makeup-Conservative Editor Test Drives 4 Bold Beauty Looks

Our holiday beauty looks can be described in three little words: Over. The. Top. To clarify, we consider this a good thing. After all, there are only so many times in the year we can pair glitter with gloss and metallics galore. But if your everyday beauty look is on the more subdued side, it can take a bit of convincing to dive into this fun pool of bold holiday beauty—and we're here to help.

We challenged Who What Wear fashion editor Aemilia Madden to try out four beauty looks made for the holiday season. Aemilia, who describes her regular beauty routine as "minimalist," pinpoints her eyes as her favorite feature, so we dug into a stash of new Almay makeup and got to work creating the confidence-boosting, scene-stealing looks below. Each one not only plays with bright, bold color, but also emphasizes her eyes. Keep scrolling to see the results.
