Holiday Shimmer & Sparkle, using just 1 product!
The holidays are the best time for some glam makeup, I am classic, but I love to add some sparkle & bling to my makeup for holiday parties! You will find that most of the drug store & department store cosmetic lines have gold & silver shimmer holiday product launches! Body sparkly, eyeshadow, eyeliner, face shimmer powder & lip gloss are among the many products. My favorite beauty secret (I discovered while formulating my "Beach Beauty" line) You can create an overall glam look using only one product. This is more cost effective and diverse. You won't need five different products in your mini holiday bag. You only need loose sparkly powder in gold or silver. There are never any rules when it comes to glam, however, to create a glam look . .that is still sophisticated & elegant, I suggest silver for blue eyes & gold for green hazels/brown. Brown/hazel eyes usually have a touch gold in the color and blue with a touch of silver. gold shimmer for warm skin tones & silver for cool. You can purchase the sparkle powder in drug store lines and department store, such as Christian Dior (shown above) or Revlon/L'Oreal, both lines are very similar. Below are some examples of eye makeup, body shimmer & lipstick/gloss. For body shimmer apply lotion first then with a large powder blush apply shimmer over shoulders, color bone, cleavage & arms/legs, anywhere you want to highlight. For lips apply lip-liner followed by lipstick, pucker lips and dab shimmer in the center of your pout, apply gloss over the top. Applying shine & sparkle in center of the lips adds the appearance of fuller lips. You can get very creative with your eyes, mixing sparkle in your mascara & eyeliner. Apply sparkly in corners of the eyes, near the brow bone and under lower lashes. You may also highlight your cheek bones & entire face, this is only appropriate for young or very smooth & flawless skin. FYI, Sparkle will highlight any flaw or accent bone structure.
