One of the best things about the holidays is the multitude of occasions that allow you to switch up your style and try a new makeup trend! Special occasions require a break from routine, and should amplify the drama of your daytime looks. Still, trends can be tricky, especially if you’re not a makeup maven with hours to spend on tutorial videos. This holiday season, enjoy our gift to you: three holiday trends that are foolproof, flattering to all, and of course, festive!
Aside from applying a foundation like Magic Minerals that has built in color correctors to boost dull skin, a shimmery highlighter is the best way to get that glowing-from-within look. Whether liquid, powder or cream, remember one rule: less is more. To achieve the strobing effect that you’ve seen all over the pages of Pinterest, focus on applying the product to area you’d like to draw attention to: your brow bones, cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, your cupid’s bow, and your chin. Pro Tip: a shimmery, champagne eyeshadow can work wonders as a highlighter!
If you think you don’t have the skin tone or moxie to pull off a vampy lip, think again! Trust us when we say there is a sultry shade for everyone that once you try, you’ll wonder why you haven’t gone to the dark side sooner! To pick the right shade, test color on your fingertips rather than the back of your hand; it’s the part of your body that most closely resembles your lip color. The other key factor is keeping your lipstick in line so that it doesn’t bleed. First, make sure to moisturize so the color adheres, and second, find a lipliner one or two shades from your lipstick to outline your lips, using soft, fluttery strokes. Voila! Dark and dangerous pout perfection.
Glitter may be a favorite of cheerleaders and dance moms everywhere, but this confetti-like cosmetic can be subtle and sultry under the right circumstances! Whether it’s a shadow formulated with glitter particles, or even just a swipe of sparkly gold or silver eyeliner, the nice part about glitter is that it can be dialed up or down depending on the level of glitz you’re going for. For a simple sweep of sparkle, apply our gel eyeliner, and while it is still drying, apply a liquid glitter liner over the top for a defined eye with a gorgeous glimmer!
