Holiday Makeup

Time to sparkle and shine! It's holiday time and there are parties to attend and events to look cute for. That means it's time for special holiday makeup!

A smokey eye with a nude lip is always a great dramatic party look that focuses attention on the eyes. I have been busy doing festive party makeup at the salon this holiday season. 

Here is a beauty that I did over the weekend. You may recognize her from previous posts. I have given her many different looks over the years including special bridal makeup. I'll show some of my favorite things that I used on her to give her this luminous holiday makeup.

She wanted a warm peachy look with smoky eyes and a nude lip. She also wanted a slightly matte look to her skin with a bit of luminizing, aka strobing, on the cheeks.

For her eyes I worked with one of my favorite palettes, the Smashbox Full Exposure Palette.

The lightest matte went on her brow bone. The 2 mid tone taupe colors were used on her eye lids and slightly in the crease. The darkest soft black color was her base eye liner. I added a deep plum shimmer shadow as a liner on top of the soft black to add a bit of color and punch. Then, I dabbed a bit of shimmer shadow on the eye lids for sparkle.

Her lashes got two coats of Cherry Blooms Lash Extension Fiber Lash Extensions Mascara. This mascara is always great for creating dramatic lashes!

The cheeks got a dusting with two peach toned powder blushes, a bit of bronzer and a touch of luminizer or highlighter or strobing, if you will!

My favorite luminizer is Josie Maran Argan Enlightenment Illuminizer. It gives the skin a beautiful glow and is full of anti aging antioxidants.

Her lips were lined with NYX Mauve lip liner. I like that color liner for my client because it was close to her natural lip color to define the lips without changing the color of the lips. The nude lipstick I used on top of the liner was Newlywed Nude by Your Name Cosmetics.

It's a great nude that has a subtle shimmer to it. 

She and I were really happy with the way her makeup came out! Visit me at Styling Point in Media, Pa for your party or Bridal makeup.
