Tuesday's Tip- Glam, Glitter, and Glitz

Glam, Glitter, and Glitz: 5 Must-Have Holiday Makeup Products

The holidays are a time to dig out from the dreariness of the weather, and wear rich colors in soft, sensual silks, deep velvets

1) Smashbox Artificial Light: Luminize your skin to give you a candlelit soft glow. Smashbox Artificial Light provides a sensual, warm glow, no matter the lighting. This product is not glittery, sparkly, or inyerface. Women of any age can wear it because it doesn’t become crepey or cake into fine lines.How to Use It: Mix it into foundation for a more subtle look. Use it to highlight cheekbones, top of the nose. Or use it all over your face for a soft sheen. Smashbox Artificial Light can also be used on your d├ęcolletage.

2) Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow in Midnight – A true smokey eyed look requires black, sooty eyeshadow. You want one that is both creamy, smudgeable, and highly blendable to get the perfect Smokey Eye.How to Use It: There are many smoky eye looks and entire articles, videos, and tutorials can be written on the topic. But to apply dark color, you need to use a firm eyeshadow brush and firmly press the shadow onto the eyelid. You want most of the smoky dark color right next to the lashline. Blend the smoky midnight color up towards, but not into the crease. Pressing the shadow on, rather than using a wiping motion, helps the shadow to adhere to the skin better.Take the tip of the same brush and use it to apply the same Midnight color close to the underside lashes. Helpful Hint: Do your smoky eyes first so that you can wipe away any shadow that might fall. Finish the rest of your makeup after you clean up any excess.

3) Estee Lauder Tender Blush in Pearl – This is a multipurpose cream to powder blush with a ot of highlighting dazzle and a pearlescent finish. It can be used under the brow bone to finish off a smoky-eyed look and can also be used to make the cheekbones pop.How to Use It: After applying blush, sweep the product alongside the tops of the cheekbones. Apply with a flat, harder makeup brush to emphasize the under brow area after applying other shadow.

4) MAC Dazzleglass: - Whether you wear this product over lipstick or wear it by itself. Large pearl particles reflect and refract light to mimic the effects of crystalline minerals. How to Use It: Apply with the applicator wand over bare lips or over lipstick for extra dazzling lips.

5) Clinique Continuous Rescue Antioxidant Moisturizer – It’s not makeup, but it’s important to take the best care of your skin when you’re wearing a lot of makeup. This is especially true if you’re drinking, exposed to cigarette smoke, staying up to late, or otherwise doing things that might not be optimal for keeping your healthy glow. An antioxidant moisturizer like Clinique Continuous Rescue Antioxidant Moisturizer can help beat the battering your skin can take from colder weather and excessive partying. But also remember to drink plenty of water and get your beauty rest!

Though the holidays are a time when we can break past all stops in pursuit of glamour, be careful to not over do it. If you wear a dramatic smoky eye, go very easy on the rest of your face. If your eyes pop, downplay your lips and cheeks.
