Holiday Trends by The Makeup Room

Tuesday, December 08, 2009

OK, I've done the research, checked out the clothing racks, combed makeup counters and came up with yet another perfect black dress, dark hose, and 3" pumps. Now it’s time to dazzle my boyfriend with my makeup, and feel great because I look great! And what’s my makeup secret tool? Palettes! Love holiday palettes! There's a plethora of colors and textures to choose from in shimmer, glimmer, frosty ice, and matte. Each has its own magical story, with soft light blues, lots of bronze, gold, silver and matte dark shades to create a smoky eye. Use black pencils for liner and set it with dark shadows either in brown, black, deep blue, bronze, purple or green... whatever works for the color scheme of choice.

Try a bright eye, sultry and imaginative, with an addition of extra mascara and fake lashes on the top lashline. When it comes to lashes, they are still hot in spectacular colors, with glitter, sequins, and feathers adorning your lids and making application easy with cool applicators that hold the entire lash allowing you to press right into your (already lined) lash line.

Your lips? Red, baby red! In matte, satins, creams and glosses. If your skin has a red undertone, use a berry red. Complexions with yellow undertone may look better with a bronze red or a fire engine red tone. Hint: add a drop of powder to the lips. Apply lipstick and blot.  Then add another coat of lip color. Speaking of reds, with my light skin and red undertone even with auburn hair a berry red looks best.

So, what are you wearing and how are you going to pull it off with makeup for the holidays? Send your ideas and take a picture!
