Here are my version of two holiday makeup looks that can be worn by everyone. I selected Tiffany another L’OREAL Paris Pro Makeup Artist because we never see ginger’s in magazine wearing both makeup looks. For the day makeup look it would have been easy to select a classic red lip but I wanted red head’s to know that they could rock other lip colors as well. On the night look I wanted to have fun with our new infallible 24 hr eye shadows so I opt for midnight blue instead of black eye shadow. For soft to sexy hair I grabbed my favorite item, L’OREAL Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray.
Of course not everyone will be a fan but at least you can see that you can be GLAMXURIOUS on a budget. Thanks L’OREAL Paris for letting me do the makeup looks and to the staff at BBB for allowing us to film at their location.
