With holiday fetes lining up and that LBD hanging in the closet, just waiting for its shining moment — it's time to put on your holiday face. The smokey eye is always in for the season, but let's take a look at this year's version.
This winter what is in for eyes is a slightly shimmery, more toned down version of the smokey eye, and Lavera Eye Shadow Duo No. 2 works perfectly. Apply white to entire lid, then layer graphite from lash to crease and smudge a bit with your finger. Line upper and lower lids with Eyeliner in Grey to add definition. Finish with Volume Mascara in black. Apply extra layers of mascara to amp up your look for night.
With this dramatic eye makeup a pale, or nude, lip is your best choice. Try Volume Mascara in black. If you're not fond of nude, or feel it washes you out, try a pale pink or light violet shade like Volume Mascara in black. Layering Transparent Lip Gloss over nude lipstick is another way to create a softer pale lip.
For the finishing touch, add a little color to cheeks. This season matte is where it's at, so just a touch of Lavera Rouge in Bronze should give you a just-stepped-in-from-the-cold glow. A natural cheek will brighten paler winter skin without looking severe.
So, stock up on hostess gifts, line up a sitter and get ready to shine. With this season's holiday look you will be the freshest face at the ball.
