Holiday Makeup Looks
Rockin' Rosy Glow
Here's a great example of how to highlight each of your features -- eyes, cheeks, and lips -- without looking "done up." As long as you stay within the same color family, you can evenly balance the face and create a soft, monochromatic look.
Start with a shimmering pink blush on the apples of the cheeks to get that just-in-from-the-cold healthy flush. Add a mauve, rose, or aubergine eye shadow to keep eyes aligned with the rosy palette. Top with a bit of black mascara.
Finally, finish the look with a dab of lip color in shades such as plum, burgundy, or rose. Look for sheer lipsticks and glosses to keep the look soft and sexy, not harsh. To keep this color in place, first line and fill lips with pencil in a matching shade.
The result should be fresh-faced and a balance of evenly placed soft color, like you are barely wearing makeup at all!
