Winter holidays are my favorite time of year to apply shimmer and glow.
It is easy to light up your look with a couple of simple additions. Here they are:
Illuminate your skin by adding a drop of my Candlelight Pearly Pink
Candlelight Gold to your foundation or to your moisturizer if not using foundation.
add that light-catching reflection. Looks perfect on brow bone under the eyebrow and as a spotlight splashed in the center of the ball of the eye just above your top eye lashes.
Red. Here are my favorite holiday reds.
Mandarin Red– a brighter truer red/leans ever so slightly
towards a blue-red.
Matte Winter Red– a has-to-be-taken-serious-red, deep and bright at the same time).
For those not ready for red lipstick, or to add a splash to your red lipstick, my Clearly Red Gloss is a transparent veil of glossy red that will add a festive air to anyone.
A warm toned flush from the cheeks imparts that ‘in front of the fire’ radiance.
Here is an archival ‘Holiday Elegance’ video from the Makeup Gourmet TV show which aired december 2007.
