It's the holiday season and I'm not really sure where the year went, but I do know it's time for holiday parties! Now more than ever there's an excuse to put on our holiday best and go for extra glam. This is no time to be clueless about how to put our best face forward when there's a holiday party every week. I'll show you 5 dazzling looks that you can wear to all of your parties.
Just like your little black dress you can't go wrong with the classic red lip. This look is not only timeless, but can be worn by anyone. However, not all reds are created equally nor will they work for everyone. Some women will need a cooler shade of red, some a warmer one, and others more neutral. For a universal red that will look good on just about anyone, try Make Up For Ever's Rouge Artist Intense in #42. Whatever shade you choose, you'll be sure to turn heads with an amazing red lip.
For those who do not prefer the red lip but want some pizazz, try a smokey eye. However, not just any smokey eye, try a shimmery one like the eye shadows in Urban Decay's Naked Palette. You can achieve a shimmery smokey eye with any shimmer shadow, pigment or even glitter. There's no rule to a smokey eye just layer and smudge. If that's too much just take a black liner, a sponge tip and blend outwards to create a subtle smokey eye.
