Holiday Makeup: From Office Cocktail Party to New Year’s Eve

Everyone says it, yet it bears repeating: the smoky eye is in. Frankly, it’s ALWAYS in, in some variant or another. The latest version, seen here on singer/actress/Dancing with the Stars alum Brandy, and Mad Men’s January Jones, it takes on a more winged look for an updated, more structured take on a classic smoky eye.

STEP ONE: Trace the inner rims of the upper and lower lash lines with dark pencil.

STEP TWO: Apply your favorite colorOn…Professional Instant Eye Shadow at an angle so that you deposit color a bit lower at the inner corner and higher on the browbone at the outer corner. Blend with your finger so that the “wing” extends about 1/4 inch past the outer corner of your eyes.

STEP THREE: Blend the rest of your eye look to the desired intensity, then set with our colorOn “Get Set” powder. This will keep your precise lines and shades sharp throughout the night. Then apply two coats of black mascara on top lashes. Use whatever is left on the wand to define lower lashes.

You’ll note both TV stars opted for bare blush and a neutral lip that matches her particular skin tone. It keeps the eyes the focus of the face. Be sure you remember to groom your brows as well, to frame that perfect makeup look.

The twinkle in your eyes during the holiday season is more than just warm wishes for your fellow (wo)man — this season, it’s your makeup! Hearst Magazines’ RealBeauty.com website (publishers of print fashion bibles Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Seventeen, and Harper’s Bazaar) posted a multi-part paean to all that glitters, from eyes to lips to nails and everywhere else, plus additional slide shows addressing the application of glitter makeup by age group — absolutely FABULOUS — from twenty-somethings up through fifty-somethings, using celebrity photos to illustrate.

So, plan your favorite glittery colorOn eye shadow look — and grab up some of these drugstore/discount store gems to take your shine to the MAX:

Jemma Kid Mascara Mascara-Liner Duo. After applying this glittering mascara, swipe the wand over your lashes for a star-studded effect or use the precise brush at the tip if the mascara wand to line your lids with glitter (Target stores, target.com)

Although everyone seems a bit glitter crazy, we think that sticking with one feature — and of course we’re partial to eyes…go figure — results in a look that’s sexy and playful. Too much in too many places is too reminiscent of Tinkerbelle, and that’s not the prototype female we’re looking to emulate. If  you go all a-glitter with your eye makeup, pick a subtle, close-to-your-own-natural-flush blush color, and a sheer nude or pinky-brown lip, one that’s close to your real lip color. Think kissable.

Our Holiday $10.00 Off Promotion continues! Use the case-sensitive code Hd12122010 at checkout to save $10.00 off your entire order. It’s good through December 31.
