Even if you don’t wear makeup regularly, the holidays are a festive time to add that little extra sparkle and let your spirit glow. Here are some tips to help you shine.
Holiday Hue: Read and Gold
Show your holiday spirit with some red and golden makeup. Select the right shade of red that accents your features. Use golden eye shadows to accent your eye area on the lid and do a little mixing with your blush. You can go for red lipstick and heavy eyeliner. Use some glitter eyeliner from the inner corners of your eyes.
Keep it Soft and Sweet
The softer side of makeup is what a girl wants in life. Choose a lipstick, lip gloss, and eye shadow within the pink shade. You can also choose Smokey eyes, which is a good option for everyone. Highlight your eye shadow with different colours of eye pencils.
Ready for Mistletoe
Plumping products and injections are expensive and you can create that same illusion using a lip pencil, concealer and the right lipstick. Once you are done with applying the lipstick, dab an angled concealer brush into some concealer and apply a thin layer of it around your lips to clean up any stray marks and make your lips look crisp and more voluptuous.
No matter what type of makeup you do, always remember your eyebrows. Using an angled brush and powder, fill in your brows for a more defined look. Take a bit of brow gel to a brush or even a shot of hairspray to your brush and apply to your eyebrows to set everything up.
There is a glamour in simple, yet magical, glowing skin. You will need some loose powder highlighters, a fluffy brush, and a spray bottle of water. Put some highlighter on the brush, tap to get off the excess, spritz with water, and apply along your cheekbones to bring out the inner luminescence.
And always remember the décolleté while dressing up. Many over-the-counter body crème are sold that have gold glitters and often a soft fragrance. Add a little to the décolleté area, as well as your upper shoulders to top off your shine.
