@hollymurraymakeup re-created many of the main characters from A Christmas Carol, including the miserly Scrooge, and the trio of ghosts that visit him. For the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Future she has used a different pair of colored contacts to represent their unique characters. We love the eerie blind effect of the Ghost of Christmas Past made using a pair of our white contact lenses
@mulan_mtz has taken a different approach to her Ghost of Yet To Come makeup idea. These freaky contact lenses
are perfect for creating a ghostly makeup look. Imagine if this dark re-telling of A Christmas Carol was real – we would totally watch it!
You’re a mean one Mr Grinch yet we can’t seem to go a Christmas without mentioning your name. The Grinch Who Stole Christmas is always on our watch list during the holidays and now we are even more hyped to watch it thanks to this incredible makeup by @hollymurraymakeup. Her insane makeup skills make it look like she is starring in the movie! The incredible detail in her Christmas jumper painting had us thinking it was real. Of course, if you are heading out to a Christmas party then this fun makeup look can be paired with a real Christmas jumper and a pair of funky contact lenses
Who knew The Grinch could look so glamorous?!? @misspoppylocks has given the Grinch a makeover in this fun paintbrush Grinch makeup look. Yellow Avatar Contact Lenses
are always a great choice for Grinch SFX costumes. These crazy contact lenses
are sure to make you instantly recognisable as the Grinch at your next Christmas party when paired with green face paint.

Would it be Christmas without the Nutcracker? This age-old tradition is usually found at the ballet but we adore @makeupbycole’s vibrant body paint of the Nutcracker. Nutcrackers are also a traditional Christmas ornament and this one wouldn’t look out of place standing beside the Christmas tree! Whether you are dressing up to create the magic of Christmas for the kids or are heading to your own festive event, this fun makeup is a great last-minute costume idea. Get the contact lenses party
started if you are creating your own Instagram Christmas series by stocking up on our Christmas styles.
Classic Christmas Characters With Colored Contact Lenses
We all know Frosty the Snowman, he’s a jolly happy soul and here he has swapped his corn cob pipe for a pair of colored contact lenses. Frosty by name and frosty by nature; @mulan_mtz’s snowman features our Aqua Blue Ice Walker Colored Contact Lenses
. This cute festive makeup can be paired with all kinds of Christmas outfits for fun festive face paint.
We all know what happens to Frosty at the end of the song, and it looks like @fx_freak’s Frosty has already started to melt with this cool split makeup effect. Pick up a pair of white SFX contact lenses
for a snowman makeover or opt for black lenses to represent Frosty’s button eyes.
A comparatively new Christmas character is Elf on the Shelf but it seems like every household now owns one of these cheeky toys. Whether you are entertaining the kids with a trick from your Elf on the Shelf or want to try out a creative Christmas makeup, this is such a cute idea! @makeupbycole has pulled it off perfectly with this waxy faced Elf paint featuring Blue Super Sky Colored Contacts
Is it a Christmas film? We think so! These Edward Scissorhands makeup ideas are so cool! Want to see more Tim Burton characters come to life? Take a look at some of our favourite blogs, below:
@makeupbycole and @hollymurraymakeup have opted for different lenses for their Edward Scissorhands inspired makeup. @makeupbycole has chosen Black Halloween Colored Contact Lenses
paired with a vivid body paint style.
In contrast, @hollymurraymakeup has painted on realistic clothing and paired her character with White Colored Contact Lenses
for total color contrast.
If your favourite character to dress up as isn’t a Christmas character then why not imagine what they would wear during the holiday season? Pennywise in a Christmas Jumper? Annabelle in an Elf costume? Or Dabi in a Christmas hat, by @rainbowskinz! We love this idea so much and @rainbowskinz has totally pulled it off.
