Ashley Basla, from Sugarpeel, shares a holiday makeup idea.
Sequins, velvet, and black and gold fabrics are the most popular holiday trends this year. As these options are on the bold side your makeup should compliment not compete. Add a festive touch like shimmer or a bit of sparkle to an otherwise simple palette.
Start by choosing a bold lip shade that compliments your skin tone and ensemble. I chose a beautiful burgundy from Laura Mercier in Merlot. Apply color only once, evenly over lips and then blot with a tissue to remove excess shine. Then add a clear, shimmery lip-gloss, like Coconut Frosting by Philosophy.
Mirror the shimmer in the high shine gloss with a sparkly shadow. Laura Mercier baked eye shadow in Amethyst Trio contains three purple gemstone colors that have just the right amount of glitter. Apply the lightest color of the trio over eyelid, crease, and brow. Finish this makeup look with two coats of Laura Mercier faux lash mascara in black. You will look beautiful as “you’re rockin’ around the Christmas tree!”
