As the last days of 2012 pass by, we thought of coming up with some professional tips to succeed in your makeup for the end of the year celebrations in harmony and with a great delicacy. Whether you focus on a mysterious look or on a red carpet mouth in a 50’s style, everything is a question of balance for you not to look like Christmas lights on your Christmas tree.
Sometimes we tend to over do it so be careful! If you go for a very intense look, you must first highlight the line of your eyebrows. The eyebrow is very important because it frames and gives character to your eyes. Apply on your eyelid colors slightly satin or matte in shades of brown, black or purple eggplant for a bit of mystery. Then wake up those ones by gently applying a touch of gold or rose gold for a more delicate and sensual feeling.
Be generous with the mascara depth look, it also contrasts the metalized detail applied to the eyelid. If your eyelashes are too thin cheat by putting a pair of false natural eyelashes. The lips are natural, drawn using a nude hot lip liner, and the installation of slightly glittery lip gloss.
If you prefer to highlight your lips, in this case dress them with red carpet color or a very scintillating red. The eyes will in this case made up with minimum weight.
As you can understand, choose the part of the face you want to highlight and insist above. The rest will be subtly disguised and you will get a balanced makeup. Absolutely avoid the gold total or ultra glittery look.
Finish by dressing your nails painted with varnish or metallic effect. Choose a color that will give presence to your hands.
The final touch: Spray iridescent loose powder on nude areas of the body and especially the neckline. Ladies and girls, you are ready for celebrations!
Happy New 2013!
