There is so much to get done during this time of year. I spend so much time rushing around shopping, entertaining, cooking – that by the time it comes to trying to look on point for my holiday parties, I’ve got 8 minutes left to do my hair, makeup and choose an outfit! So this year, I’m better prepared. Not only am I choosing ensembles in advance, I’m pre-planning my makeup looks too! To help make the getting ready process simple, I’ve made a video of my favorite festive makeup trends, which will be perfect for Christmas, Hanukkah or New Years Eve. You don’t have to be a pro to achieve these looks, they’re done in 5 minutes or less. Check out my video for the tutorials, and click to shop the products I used below!
First, my fall makeup MUST: a matte berry lip. The trick is to look for a lipstick with matte on the label, and use different shades on top, blended together. I applied a liner first, a cream lipstick second, and a matte lip color to top it off. Matte is the look of the season! Make sure to keep the eyes neutral and clean, to balance it out such a bold lip.
Second, one of my favorite red carpet looks to wear: the copper smokey eye. This look really makes your eyes pop and is a modern alternative to the classic smoky eye. You’ll need 3 brushes (a small pointed brush, a fluffy medium-sized brush, and a soft blending one). Try pairing this look with highlighted cheeks a neutral glossy lip.
