It’s a little bit sultry and a little bit sweet – drink in this seasonal makeup trend.

Have you ever stared into a mug of hot cocoa and thought – this rich, chocolatey brown would look great with my complexion? Well, you’re not alone. Hot cocoa makeup has taken over TikTok as the latest have-to-try holiday beauty trend and we know a simple way (and the perfect products) for you to master it. Whether you want something subtle and smoky for a holiday party or are just looking to try out a new holiday makeup look, we’ll have you looking like all you need is a marshmallow to go with it.


There’s nothing like a fresh holiday eye makeup look.
Start your hot cocoa
makeup look strong by applying Morphe
Eyelid Primer
to prep the lids. Then using our limited edition holiday eyeshadow palette
The Present Artistry Palette
, sweep shade Mindful Moment over
the full crease, then Winter Warmer in just the crease. Buff in Caramelt into
the lashline. Line the lid with Haute Cocoa and apply Cheers to You in the
center lid and inner corners. Press Cheers to You and Sparkle Season into the
center waterline, and Moonbright into the center spotlight of the lid to add
shine. Line the lower lash line with Winter Warmer, then blend it all together.

Finish this so-sweet holiday eyeshadow look
off with a few swipes of Morphe
Make It Big Volumizing Mascara
and brush up your brows with Supreme
Brow Sculpting & Shaping Wax
in Clear.


Bring some sweetness to your
cheeks as if you were out in the snow – this is where things get creative. Take
out Soulmatte
Velvet Lip Mousse
in shades Other Half and Quick Crush and apply onto cheeks with
your fingers or a beauty sponge. Then pat on shades Caramelt and Winter Warmer
from your Artistry Palette above. The result is a chocolatey, gorgeous flush.


Look like you just took a deep sip
of the richest chocolate by applying our Morphe
Velvet Lip Mousse
in shade Other Half, a brown-brick color. Add a glossy shine with
Dripglass Drenched High Pigment Lip Gloss
in shade
Drip Coffee.
