Glam Makeup Tips For the Perfect Holiday Look

We all want to look a little more glamorous, chic, and sophisticated for the holidays. But it isn’t always easy to figure out how to turn our everyday look into holiday glam. The Makeup Examiner will share her own little makeup struggle. TME’s mother was a model and TME believes that, that woman could effortlessly apply falsies in her sleep! Her magic ability to apply false eyelashes, no matter the place and in three seconds flat, did not circulate to The Makeup Examiner’s DNA.
TME is a determined woman and eventually mastered falsie application. TME shares this with readers so that they too may be a little more fearless and a little more adventurous. After all, if ever there was a time to try a few bolder moves with our makeup the holiday season is it. So … let the festivities begin!

1. Skin Is In - Any look begins with great skin. And if you haven’t adopted a good skin care regime, you can adopt “fake it ‘til you make it” with a few tricks to get flawless looking skin. The Makeup Examiner’s “Tips For A Fresh and Flawless Face” gives you all the quick and easy tricks to start your glam look with a beautiful canvas.

2. The Eyes Have It - This is where you can have some real fun and try a new, bolder look. Chantecaille offers a gorgeous palette for Holiday 2013 and simple to follow Beauty Guide for a stunning holiday eye look. Punch up the look with the application of EcoTools Lashes that offer five variations from “Barley There” to “Soft & Dramatic,” plus the easiest how-to guide on the planet! Both Chantecaille and EcoTools are cruelty-free, and at $5.99 a pair, EcoTools reusable lashes are a major bargain!

3. Lip Service - The Makeup Examiner tends to stick with an “either or,” as in either go for a bold eye or a bold lip. So if you’re opting for real glammed up eye-popping colors, stick with an understated lip hue. By the same, you can choose to go for a subtle statement with your eyes (yes, you can still glam-up with falsies) and paint your pout with a punched up shade in a stronger hue of red, berry or even pink. One thing to note is that during the colder months our lips can get dry so chose a moisturizing formula like NARS Cinematic Lipstick.

4. Nail It - No look is truly complete sans nail lacquer. For the holidays, add a little sparkle to finish your look with a shimmery shade or add a coat of sparkly lacquer, like SpaRitual Golden Rule, over your favorite polish or alone. The Makeup Examiner just acquired CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Bombshell #313, from the brand’s new Bombshell Collection and TME is calling this shade “THE” holiday hue for this season!

5. Finishing Touch - Oh, you thought that you were all done once you polished those talons? TME’s latest makeup obsession is Benefit watt's up! highlighter. This product is magic in a tube and can be applied anywhere you want to give a little light, lift or accentuation … like your d√©colletage.
