Tis the season…to run from work to shopping, from shopping to dinner, from dinner to run errands, from errands to a holiday party from which you fall exhausted into bed. The holiday season is my favorite time of year, but it also has me jumping through hoops like a circus poodle. To transition from the modest appropriate work makeup to a style savvy look for a holiday party, there are several tricks up my sleeve.
Put some punch in your pout with a brighter lip. Soft pinks and deep hues are great for the office, but a bold and bright lip will make a statement. Try Bite Beauty Honey Lip Lacquer in Cienna. The lip gloss that boasts high marks by users on Sephora praise its true-to-color line. It is also free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs or triclosan. So it is perfect for those mistletoe moments.
Don’t be tempted to swipe on more eyeshadow or bronzer. This could make your look overdone. It breaks a Beauty Rule! Click HERE for more of bad beauty habits you need to break ASAP.
Instead, try extending what you already have. Use Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen to glide out your liner into a cat eye. It is deeply pigmented, so remember a little goes a long way.
Finally, brighten up your eyes with an amplifier. Try Lancome Hypnose Star Mascara. Start with the flat side of the brush by applying it right at the lashline to get the instant volume. Then, comb through your lashes using a zig-zag motion with the brush. Next turn the brush so you can use the round side and work it through your lashes.
If you prefer to use your favorite mascara, just remember to use a back and forth motion with the brush as you move it through your lashes. This will help fight clumps and ensure separation and complete coverage.
