Get Gorgeous This Holiday Season!
5 beauty looks that will keep you festive and full of cheer no matter what the occasion!
Date Night … Smoldering Stare
The quickest way to get sexy, attention –grabbing eyes is with eyeliner. Even if you have the deepest set eyes liner will make your eyes stand out. Using your lash-line as a guide apply liner close to lashes and for added drama, extend the liner and wing upwards. Keep lips nudish and chisel cheekbones using a dark bronzer under the cheekbones and a light bronzer over the apples of the cheeks.

Beach party … Bright Eyes
Colors from the deepest pine-tree greens to ocean blue turquoise are everywhere this season. Blend them completely to create a smoky rather than patchy effect or create a colorful cat-eye by applying as liner. Keep skin translucent by mixing your foundation with your day cream and give lips a glassy finish by mixing a coral lipstick with clear lip-gloss.

Red Carpet … Bold Lips
A slick of red lipstick is an instant way to look glam in seconds. There’s a red to suit every skin tone. Soft berry reds with a bluish undertone go well with fair skin. Deeper, richer reds are flattering for a medium complexion. If you have a sallow /olive complexion, stick with deep brownish reds or dark berry undertones, and with a dark complexion deep blue-toned and mahogany reds look best.

Finish with a dusting of bronzer and peachy pink lips.
