It’s the most wonderful time of the year, the weather is nice and cold, and the smell of pine trees are everywhere. It’s the perfect excuse to get away from work and spend time with the people you care about most, even the ones that you haven’t seen in a while. Everybody is running around doing last minute preparations for this year’s get together. You finally found the perfect dress, and the accessories to go with it, but what about the perfect look? Don’t you want to flaunt your face the right way, and feel like the most beautiful woman at the party?
The Golden Eye
If all that glitters, is gold, it still wouldn’t compare to all the attention that will be set on your eyes this holiday season. Golden eyeshadows are what’s trending right now, and looks great on all skin tones. It’s such a fascinating color that can be worn any time of the year and with any outfit. This eyeshadow is available in a matte, gel, airbrush, and powder. It’s easy to apply and can be bought almost anywhere. Feeling festive? Add a cat eyeliner wing to your shimmering gold smoky eyes and it will have you feeling glamourous.

Illuminate the Night
The most brilliant thing that has been invented that every woman should own is an illuminator. Illuminator’s have become a must have item in everyone’s make-up bag. Choosing the right illuminator is fun and easy, but what’s more important is how to apply it. If you want a gorgeous glow you must apply the illuminator to the areas of the face that stand out the most when in indirect sunlight. Best areas of interests should be your brow bone, which defines your arch, cheekbones which enhances sharpness, bridge of the nose, and cupid’s arrow (double curve in the upper lip). When applied correctly, it makes the skin look smoother, softer, and refreshed. Now, who wouldn’t want a little radiance in their life? For a more glowing look, try a shimmering skin perfector.

The Perfect Shade
It doesn’t matter if you are going natural for the day or getting ready for a big night, applying the right shade of lipstick, completes any look. I know how sometimes finding the right shade can be difficult, you don’t want to wear something that’s too dark or wear something that’s too bright. Sometimes, we see others wearing a certain color that looks great on them, but looks different on you. The reason behind this is because everyone’s skin tone is different, once you know what skin type you are then it can be easily suggested which shade is right for you. For an example, if you have fair skin, then true reds, reds with pink undertone, and magenta will suit you best. If you have medium/olive skin, pink, cranberry, reds, and almost all nudes will stand out the most. If you have dark skin, burgundy, brown, dark beige, and orange tone reds will best compliment you.
