Christmas MakeupYesterday you probably read the article on how to get ready for the Christmas party. Let’s go on and discuss your makeup for the Christmas night. Eyes, lips, face skin, nails – everything must look perfect! These useful tips, makeup tricks and advice from professionals will help you prepare for Christmas in the best way possible.

Nails

Why follow hot trends and choose dark-colored nail polishes? Brown and dark-blue colors are in this season, but they may accentuate imperfections on your hands – wrinkles, pigment spots and protruding veins.

Try pink, translucent or beige colors. Don’t forget dry cuticles make your hands look older. Rub your hands with special oils and drink more green tea. It’s healthy for your body and for your hands.

Lips

There are no alternatives to lipstick this season. What you need is to choose the right color. Don’t try to pick the lipstick exactly matching the color of your Christmas dress. It’s boring and out of fashion.

Try different colors on your lips. It’s important that your lipstick matches the color of your skin, hair and eyelids makeup. Right lipstick should make you look younger and fresher. Shades of red and violet tones are at the top of this winter’s trend.

Pink Lip and Eye Makeup

Complexion

It is a mistake to think that oily shine would add more beauty to your image. Don’t use your powder very often trying to make your skin look matte. You’ll get a lifeless mask instead.

Use oil absorbing tissues instead. Doing your makeup, apply T-zone cosmetics and then use a long-lasting foundation cream with matte effect. The foundation will prevent oily shine in the midst of the party. By the way, for better effect you can mix the foundation with matte fluid in 2:1 proportion.

Eyelid Makeup

Don’t get disappointed if you can’t use liquid eye liners. This winter, liquid eye liner precision is replaced by careless eye pencil lines.

It would be smart to follow Aaron de Mey’s, creative director at Lancôme, advice who recommends the following eye makeup. Draw the line along the eye lashes with a pencil liner and smudge for creating smoky eyes effect. Then, use a brush or your finger to draw the line further to your temples. Apply golden eye shadows around inner and outer corners of the eyes.

Sparkles

It’s crucial to know where enough is enough. Don’t overuse sparkles. Accentuate protruding parts of face and body. Make sure you add “gilt” to your shoulders and collarbones. If you have matte skin tone, golden sparkles will look great on your eyelids, cheekbones, back of the nose and the tip of the chin.

Peter Philips, creative director at Chanel, came up with this trick to present Alexander McQueen collections. It looked brilliant!

How to Create a Smoky Eye Effect

Using Cosmetic during the Party

Are you going out? Decide what you are going to carry in your cosmetics bag. Don’t stuff your bag with everything you’ve got. That’s comic. Take samples of creams, a pack of oil-absorbing tissues and a small eye shadows palette.
