Celebrity Makeup Artist & Beauty Expert Brandy Gomez-Duplessis quick tips for you to glam up your makeup this holiday season:
- Eye glitter: Glitter on the eyes always makes a girl smile. It’s like diamonds for the eyes. This fun makeup item can be used at the bottom of the eyes or in the inner corners. These sparkles will leave you feeling so glamorous.
Lips: The holidays are a perfect time to wear Cherry Bomb lip color. It’s especially great when you want to stand out. Don’t forget to buy it in a lip stain or a long-wearing formula to keep up this delicious look.
- Lashes: Lashes are always a girl’s best friend. With great holiday choices (strip or individual), they are a must-have item that will make you feel sexy and look seductive. It’s an excuse to flirt a little more.
- Eye shadow: Metallic eye shadows are perfect if you choose to go with a smoky eye. Silver metallic eye shadow on the inner corners of the eyes and dark metallic in the outer corner and crease is always smokin’.
Face: A highlighter on the face can be very sexy when applied on the cheeks. It’s a very simple and easy product that can also be used on the décolleté for a subtle glam effect.
