Look Fabulous for Your Upcoming Holiday Party! And here is how.
First, choose the right Concealer! If your concealer is too light, you will look like kung-fu Panda. If it’s too dark, you’ll look like you have dark circles even if you don’t. Using a creamy concealer with peachy undertones will not only camouflage dark circles but it will brighten and add life to your face as well! We Recommend Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer. ($24ITcosmetics.com) In a time crunch… you can also use this concealer as your foundation!
Now give your face a little sculpting! By adding a bit of Matte Bronzer to your face you can look thinner and younger in just a few strokes of you make-up brush! Dip your brush lightly in the bronzer and create the “E” “3” shape on your face. To do this, start at your temple and curve the brush around and under your cheekbone, then back around and under your jaw. This creates a letter “E” on your left side and a number “3” on your right! Now take the same brush and starting right under the tip of your chin, bring the bronzer down your neck for an instant double chin removal!

Now it’s time for that Holiday Glow! Since you most likely will be posing for the camera as well, we recommend a highlighter that does not have glitter. Using a clean brush, lightly dust the highlighter on the tops of your cheekbones, down the center of your nose, If you are wearing a strapless dress or low cut dress, brush the highlighter along your Décolleté to make your clavicle more pronounced giving the appearance of a slimmer frame, the tops of your shoulder and to make your legs appear longer, apply down the center of your legs! We recommend It Cosmetics Hello Light Illuminating Powder with Radiance Brush ($35.00QVC.com)
Give yourself the look of fake lashes! If you are like me, I often feel like I am going into battle with eyelash glue and one fake lash always tries to leave the party early! To save time, I forgo the fake lashes and go with the fake lash look! After your eye look is complete grab a playing card or business card and place it behind your lashes at the base of your lashes. With your favorite volumizing mascara,pull the mascara wand up and through lashes, wiggling as you go. The card will not only shield you from messing up your makeup but it will also help to fan your lashes and get them as straight up as possible! We recommend IT Cosmetics Hello Lashes 5-in-1 Volumizing Mascara! ($20.00ITCosmetics.com, Beauty.com)
