Day and Night Holiday Make up Plan: Be bold

For the Day:

1) Keep the eyes neutral, or skin tone bare, accent it off with any statement bright matte color like red or blue red burgundy lipstick! -Adding red lipstick gives you instant glamor.

2) Purple, blue, red and yellow eye shadows blended together create a sense of “purple haze”

           3) Matte fuchsia lips and yellow eye shadow covering the entire eyelids brings back the joyfulness of the spring time

4) For a change, change up the color of your mascara – be bold with electric blue Diorshow mascara. -Colored mascara is a trend that never gets old, switch it up and try YSL’s burgundy, olive or brown shades!

5) During the days, try on some neon nail polish and pick simple bold electric colors that will bring out your eyes and your porcelain skin.

 

For the Night:

1) For and elegant geisha makeup look go with a bare faced makeup with a touch of winged out eyeliner and bright red lips!

2) For a real vixen look make your eyes pop with intense dark purple smokey eyes.

3) Metallic toned makeup is ideal for the night! Try mesmerizing metallic gold with some copper and black eyeshadow. Combine this strong eye makeup with some nude subtle lips!

 

Francois Nars, creative director and founder of NARS Cosmetics, shares holiday tips:

“Be light-handed when you’re doing makeup. It’s not about the quantity, it’s about the quality and how you apply it. Less is more!”
“I have a real love affair with lipstick – you could try a bold fuschia or pop of pink. It has such a strong impact on the face. You feel immediately elegant and chic and it gives the face a lot of strength. It gives you more power. And, if you don’t like it, take it off and try something else. Makeup is not a commitment!”
