A silver or gold eyeshadow swept across your lid and on the inner corners of your eyes creates a glitzy, party ready look in minutes. The color on the inner corners of your eyes will brighten your eyes and will make them seem to sparkle! Line in black eyeliner, top off with a coat of mascara and you are off to the ball!
Fun, bright lips
Tis the season to be merry and bright… especially your lips! Holiday parties are the perfect occasions to have fun with lip color. Try bright or intense tones that you wouldn’t usually wear like hot pink, orange-red, cherry-red or deep berry. This look works best by keeping the rest of your makeup to a minimum; so it’s a great choice when you are pressed for time.
Playing up your lashes is one of the simplest ways to feel glamourous. To create the look of false lashes, use an eyelash curler to open up your eyes. Next, line the inner upper waterline and the upper lash line with a black pencil eyeliner; this will create the illusion of thicker lashes. Follow by lining the upper lash line with a liquid black eyeliner; the precision line and intense color will help open up your eyes. Now apply two coats of a black lash maximizing mascara from roots to tips. Finally, to create the faux lash look, use a clean lash brush to apply a thin coat of translucent powder and finish with one more coat of mascara; you will feel youthful and flirty! When you emphasize your lashes remember to keep the rest of your makeup simple; flawless skin and a sweep of nude or pink gloss will keep this party look sexy, not vampy.
