Holiday Make up!Posted by: Robin Siegel on December 24th, 2012
It’s that time of year to celebrate and with the cooler weather, time to make a few changes to our skin care and make up. Drier weather calls for treatment serums, richer moisturizers, lip balms and eye cream.
One of my favorite holiday looks is slightly shimmering golden eyeshadow, black eyeliner and red or wine colored lips.
It’s a great time of year to try some fake lashes even if you’ve been using lash conditioning products. Try eyelashes from Ardell or Eyelure.
A strong dramatic eye with sparkling black, gray or chocolate brown eye shadow, lots of lashes and a softer lip color is a striking festive statement too. One of my favorite chocolate brown eye shadows is from Chantecaille and it’s called Chocolat. Try combining it with another Chantecaille eyeshadow called Jasper for a warm coppery glow. I love the look of lining the inside lower lash line with Lancome Black Coffee pencil.
A lot of make up companies are offering holiday collections. Check out maccosmetics.com for some very inspiring holiday palettes in fun containers. LORAC is offering a beautiful lip gloss collection I love.
The beauty of the internet is we can research and shop in comfort and privacy. Of course it’s not the same as feeling textures and seeing how different colors react on our skin, but we can get a good general idea.
Enjoy experimenting or just pump your signature looks for a little holiday cheer.
