Looking for makeup that’s glamorous and chic but simple and elegant? Here’s a quick, easy, step-by-step guide to perfecting the ideal Holiday look.
The base and foundation
Holiday makeup that’s worthy of the occasion starts with the right base. It’s the secret to bringing out your inner light and awakening your look.
So, before you begin creating your Holiday makeup, start by preparing your skin with products from your beauty routine that are best suited to your skin type, and then use a base and finally, unify your complexion using your favourite foundation.
To give better definition to your finest traits, complete your base makeup with a little facial contouring.
How? Simple. Just use a bronzer to shade the hollows of your cheeks, the sides of your nose, around your forehead and along your lower jawlines. Next, apply a lighter concealer under your eyes, along the bridge of your nose, in the middle of your Cupid's bow, the tip of your brow bone and the centre of your forehead.
This Holiday season, why not add a touch of green to your look? Tone-on-tone eyeshadows and pastel colours work wonders. Looking for eye makeup that’s worthy of your winter festivities? Just follow these easy steps...
First, you'll need...
- Pupa Made to Last pencil-in shade n° 29.
- Personnelle Cosmetics Luminosité eyeshadow palette.
- Clarins eye pen, Forest colour.
- Clarins Wonder Perfect 4D mascara.
Then, just follow these simple steps:
