Holiday party season is upon us, but like everything in 2020, it’s going to be a little different this year. Although lavish meals, expensive bar tabs and having a boogie on the dance floor are out of the question, we all deserve to let our hair down. Enter the virtual Christmas Party.
A Zoom call might not be the end of year bash you had in mind, but once you’ve got yourself zoom ready, got the tunes playing and the drinks flowing, it might smash your expectations . And the best thing? No running for the night bus or stumbling into a taxi at the end of the night.
To make the most of your virtual Christmas do, get glammed up and into a festive mood. Here are our top 3 Christmas makeup ideas from Beautystack’s Pros, as well as some inspo for your very own lockdown party.
Our 3 Go To Christmas Makeup Looks
1. Glitter Glam
Let’s face it, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a lot of glitter. If you want to add a touch of sparkle to your Christmas party look, the search is over. We are utterly obsessed with this statement glitter makeup by @rtmua. It’s like a smokey eye, but better. Here our Pro uses dark grey eyeshadow and a silver glitter on top, but if you’re trying this at home you could always mix it up. If you’re a gold jewlery kind of girl, gold glitter would look equally as fab! Book with Rachel and the service includes relaxing skin prep, full makeup application using luxury brands and lash application.

2. Rainbow flick
Go big or go home! Life is too short to not have fun so why not get your Christmas party makeup ideas from @unrulybeauty – fun and colourful are what they’re best at. We’ve picked out the ‘rainbow feline flick’ because if you want to make a statement at your virtual do, popping eye makeup is definitely the way to go. This one is pretty technical and not everyone has such a colourful makeup pallet at home, so we’d suggest going to a Pro. If that’s out the question, red eyeshadow is a safe bet – it’s still fun and very Christmassy!

Virtual Christmas Party Ideas
At Beautystack you best believe we’ll be dressing up to the nines and throwing ourselves an amazing virtual end of year party. Here are some of our online Christmas party ideas to get you started.
1. Create a banging playlist
A party without music just simply isn’t a party at all. At Beautystack, we’ll be creating a suitably festive Spotify playlist with all your Christmas faves and club classics. We want the perfect mix of Michael Bublé and Dua Lipa, Jay Z and Mariah Carey! Get all of your party goers to submit a song (or a few each depending on how many of you there are) and you’ll end up with some absolute bangers – or at least having a right giggle.
2. Host a virtual cocktail party
Every Christmas party should have at least one signature drink. Whether it’s cocktails or mocktails, you want something festive that both looks and tastes great! Instagrammable and delicious is the perfect combination. Boozy Events will send your team their own cocktail making kit. Or you can put on a BYOB cocktail hour where everyone competes to make the best drink. Of course, you’ll have no way of knowing who’s tasted the best but everyone will certainly have fun.
3. Get an inspiring speaker to talk
At Beautystack we believe in empowering individuals to be the best that they can be. We have a number of coaching and development online sessions bookable through the app because investing in yourself is the most important investment you’ll ever make. If you’re a business leader, you should take this incentive even further and make it company-wide. Use your network to ask inspiring people to talk at the beginning of your office party so team members feel motivated, know you care and end up in the perfect headspace to have fun.
