Naughty or nice, you can still look angelic as you hit the holiday party scene with eyes rimmed in a halo of gold and berry lips that beg to be the center of attention!
This is about the time of year when winter weather starts to take its toll on skin. Create a gorgeous, creamy complexion with a moisturizing foundation like Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lift & Firm Makeup. And if you have extremely dry skin, I'd recommend trying Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Foundation too. I just got it for my mom!
Next, for eyes that look luminous, apply Stila Brighten & Correct Concealer starting at the very inner corner and under the eyes.
Start with a soft wash on the eyes, blending Clinique Color Surge Shadow in Beige Shimmer or Champagne from the lash line all the way to the brow bone.
Then get gilded! Apply Lancome Eternal Gold Color Design Shadow from lash line to crease on the upper eye and use the same shade to fully line along the lower lashes. Another option would be to use Lancome's limited-edition 24 Karat Liner. P.S. If you haven't seen it, prepare to be dazzled and check out the entire Tresor Holiday Collection ASAP!
Frame your golden features by enhancing brows with Lamik's Celeb Brow Kit
Finish by creating standout, glossy black lashes with Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara.
Cheeks & Lips
Soft eyes call for a bit more blush. Add a healthy-looking flush to cheeks with bareMinerals READY Blush in The One.
Using one of the runway trends on everyone's lips, create an ombre effect with berry lips that blend into a pop of brighter pink! Start by using your finger to apply Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in Nocturne.
Next, separate your lips and apply Urban Decay Super-Saturated Gloss Stick in either Big Bang or Crush on the very inner part of your pout only. Press lips together and blend.
Tip: If you're still uncertain of what an ombre pout looks like or how to pull it off, some people have described this as the 'lollipop' look. Think of where a round lollipop naturally deposits color on the inner edge of your lips and mimic that effect with a complimentary lip color! You can go with a shade that's lighter, brighter (like this look), or create a reverse ombre with a light lip color that blends into a darker shade.
