Bring on the Holiday Drama…
December 2, 2011 by Cristi
Hello ladies! It is officially December and you know what that means- the holiday parties are here and in full swing! I love any excuse to bring some drama into my life… with my makeup that is. But with all the hustle and bustle- who really has the time to spend hours getting ready? So, I decided to ask a makeup expert Camilla Orosco to show us how to get the glamour without too much fuss. So, let’s get started.
Step 1: Apply your foundation/powder and light application of blush…the key to not looking overdone is to keep a fresh face.
Step 2: Powder your eyelids with your base color or use a nude shadow.
Step 3: Use a liquid liner (we used Mirabella Magic Marker) to create a dramatic cat-eye. Follow the natural line of your lash line to start the line, use small strokes to build on the shape.
Step 4: Use an angle brush and a coal colored shadow to soften the line and blend upward on upper and lower lid.
Step 5: Lightly powder your lips and apply your fave red holiday shade (we used Mirabella in Red Velvet). Start from the middle of your lips and work outward.
Step 6: Pull your hair up out of your face into a loose updo- to see a video tutorial on this easy updo go here.
and finally- step 7: Find a fabulous holiday dress and sparkly shoes and get your holiday groove on!!
And don’t forget to leave the mom bag at home an take a clutch instead!
You are ready to go.
