With Christmas just a couple of days away, we’ve decided to lend a hand and put together a fabulous selection of Christmas makeup ideas that will make your 2012 Christmas make-up memorable!
Regardless if you’ve decided to spend the holidays in the comfort of your own home or partying with your closest friends, the following Christmas makeup ideas will surely help you decide which woman you want to transform yourself in for the holidays, so check out these makeup looks and choose which one will work its magic on you.

The Glamorous

A sultry makeup look that radiates is always a great idea as far as Christmas make-up goes and fortunately there’s an array of radiant, sheer and metallic finish makeup products that have an almost tropical allure and that you can turn to regardless of your budget.
For this type of look make sure you use an illuminating foundation and a highlighter which you’ll apply from the temples down towards the apple of the cheeks to add that freshness and glow that makes heads turn. For the eyes use dark tones as well as gold, copper metallic pigments and finish the look with a blush and a metallic lipstick that compliments your complexion and eyeshadow color choice.

The Drama Queen

Do you love vivacious pigments? But most importantly are you brave enough to play with vivacious makeup pigments? If yes, bring out your inner drama queen and put the most seductive and intense pigments to work. Purple/magenta, emerald green as well as black are the most popular eyeshadow shades to use when trying to add depth and drama to your eyes, so get creative and sculpt your peepers to perfection. A bit of eyeliner smudged across the lash line, lashings of mascara (if you’ve got a hot pair of dramatic falsies use it!) and either a fierce red/berry tone lipstick or a nude lip color will help complete your look and give you a cinematic allure that will make traffic stop!

The Demure

If you’re thinking of playing it safe or you just want your Christmas makeup to look natural and romantic, soft pastel pigments are the answer to your needs! Keep the eyes defined with a shimmery sheer pink/beige (you can also go with bare eyelids), light lashings of mascara, add a natural flush to your cheeks with a soft pink/salmon/peach blush and plump up the lips with a sheer lip gloss or lipstick to complete your enviable demure look.
Now all that’s left is to have a Merry Christmas!

Stylish Purple Makeup Ideas

Add some pizzazz to your look through the use of universally flattering purple pigments and if you’re lacking ideas, the following purple makeup looks will surely help guide you to perfection!

A great way to change your look is through the use of richly pigmented makeup products and one of the most popular colors right now is purple. The particularity of this color is its versatility as it can be mixed and matched to achieve various, universally flattering stylish purple makeup looks, so if you’re ready to add some pizzazz to your look, this is definitely a color to add to your beauty collection.

To achieve some of the most adventurous looks, it is advised to play with intense, high quality pigments as there are so many cool purple eye makeup colors available in various shades and textures that can contribute to the creation of an innovative stylish purple makeup look every time you desire. These pigments deliver a rich pigmentation on the lid from first stroke, as if the formulas are not of quality, you’re going to have a difficult time reaching that intensity that looks deep and dramatic and every bit as sexy as the makeup that you’ve imagined. From the sophisticated to the showgirl, there’s a stylish purple eye makeup to exploit, so try to take the following tips into consideration to ensure you achieve that illusion that says movie star from first glimpse.

If you’re looking for a look that feels mysterious yet sexy, opt for a cool violet eye shadow or a purple makeup and pair it with a cool and intense black that you’ll softly blend into the crease and the outer corner of the eye. The idea is to smoke up the area and create a sultry, seductive makeup look that no one can resist to. To add even more mystery to the look apply a black eyeliner pencil to the waterline and gently smudge the pencil into the lashes to intensify the eyes instantly. Finish the look with a black mascara and move on to defining your features using a blush and a neutral lipstick or lip gloss as this way your look will appear perfectly balanced. If you’re looking for more drama, pair your purple and black eye makeup with a vivid lip color, but keep in mind that this is a color combo that only works for evenings.

The honeys that are a bit more daring and love to play with vivacious pigments can opt for a cool purple and pink, purple and gold/copper, purple and orange, violet, lavender or any other shade mix, in shimmery or matte, that you feel could bring out your playful side. Create an alluring eye makeup by blending the shades well (a darker shades is mandatory for the crease) as this is the secret to a cool multi-chromatic eye makeup. These are lighter shades that can be paired with a white eyeliner smudged across the waterline to create the appearance of bigger, opened eyes. Depending on personal preference you can smudge a kohl eyeliner across the lash line to achieve a more sophisticated gaze, but either way your peepers will not go by unobserved provided that the colors are blended well. Finish your eye makeup with a bit of mascara and continue to define your facial features using neutral shades as this will help soften the overall look.

How to Style a Knotted Chignon

It’s amazing how much a simple hair styling technique can transform your look, so get your hair looking fabulous by learning the knotted chignon technique presented step-by-step in a fab tutorial, next!
A perfectly polished hairstyle can do wonders for your overall image, so become a hair style icon by learning how to create intricate hairstyles with a minimum amount of effort. A classy ‘do such as a knotted chignon can be a perfect party season hairstyle to try if you have a medium to long hair length, and learning the steps to styling this particular updo won’t take too much effort or time, so take a peek at our pick of best DIY salon-look hair styling tutorial created by Lilith Moon and give your locks a ‘styleover’ fit for formal or informal occasions.

This party-season knotted updo looks amazing and can be created on various hair textures but if you’re looking for a total glam effect, opt for a sleek straight hair texture instead as this way the intricate looking knots will be enhanced to perfection, making the visual effect worthy of a diva. This high-fashion hairstyle will definitely make you stand out of the crowd from the office to the dance-floor, so start working your hair to perfection by styling it sleek straight and detangling it o make it easier to work with. If you have fine hair, apply a bit of styling mousse on your locks as this will provide adherence and extra hold, so your cool knotted chignon won’t come undone easily.

 

 

Starting from the crown of the head, separate the hair horizontally, going from one temple to another and then separate the hair into two. Next, smooth the hair and create a stylish knot by passing one of the strands under-over-back under again before proceeding just like you would when styling a cool French-braid by taking hair from each part and adding it to the hair strand closest to it and then continue to style another knot.

Try to keep the knots centered by feeling with your fingers the line of the hair as you style. Repeat the steps until you’ve reached the nape of the neck, taking hairs from both sides of the head (as symmetrically as possible) and adding them to the hair strands you’re using to create the knots with.

Once you’ve reached the nape of the neck, secure the hair using a thin hair elastic and from now on your options are numerous. You can opt to create various styles depending on your mood, meaning you can opt for a slightly different approach every time you wish by keeping the hair waved into a cool poly, by creating a cool twisted updo or by keeping things simple and braiding the hair then wrapping it around the base of the elastic before securing it in place using bobby pins.

This is a look that works wonders from day to evening, so keep your hair simple or amp up the glam factor by adding hair accessories to the look, depending on what you feel like doing with your locks. Finish by applying a bit of hair spray for extra hold and smooth out any flyaway hairs and dust on some shine spray if you wish to make your locks look glossier than ever.

This technique brings fabulous hair to your fingertips, so start styling and get your locks looking like those of an off-duty supermodel!

40+ Beauty Tips | Look Years Younger with Makeup

Look years longer with our over 40 makeup tips! It’s time to update your beauty routine and try new, innovative cosmetic formulas to create youthful and stunning makeup looks.
Makeup can be tricky. If you’re stuck with the same makeup routine you’ve done for years, it can be as aging as an out-of-style wardrobe. Yet, while there are many trends in makeup, the best bet is to leave the crazy colors to the teens and create a naturally stunning look. But that doesn’t have to mean makeup-free. In fact, certain makeup tips can make your face look years younger without having to resort to expensive skin-care products or extensive – and painful – anti-aging plastic surgery. Here’s how to use your cosmetics to create a younger look:

Prepare your skin
Before you apply a drop of makeup, be sure your skin is exfoliated once or twice a week. Sloughing away dead skin cells will actually allow your makeup to absorb better into your skin, rather than “sitting” on the skin, which can create a “cakey” look. Be sure to moisturize your skin and ensure you have SPF protection either in your moisturizer or foundation.

A great foundation
Apply a pore-minimizing primer. You can find this in powder or liquid form, and it’s one of the newest ways to really create a flawless canvas for your makeup. A new type of product known as BB creams actually combine a primer, moisture, anti-aging ingredients and a bit of color for coverage. Or you can opt for a lightweight foam-like foundation or even a spray foundation that you apply with a sponge. With a primer, you don’t need a heavy foundation.

 

40+ Beauty Tips | Look Years Younger with Makeup

 

Clinique Even Better Foundation SPF 15 $27
Smashbox Artificial Light Luminizing Lotion $26
B.B. Cream SPF 27 PA++ $38

Conceal your flaws
If you have blemishes, redness, age spots or under-eye circles, you can find a concealer that will even out your color. Pastel green or yellow concealers work to neutralize redness in the skin, like acne, scars, rosacea or even birthmarks. Light pink and peach concealers are effective in covering blue or gray tones under the eyes.

Perk up cheeks
Choose a blush that lightly warms your cheeks and apply it to the round apples of your cheeks. Use a darker bronzer or contouring color that is two shades darker than your blush and apply it below your cheek bones. This will make your cheek bones look more “lifted” while de-emphasizing the fullness of your lower cheeks.

Bobbi Brown Day to Night Shadow Options $67
Benefit High Beam Highlighter $26
Chanel Powder Blush 15 Orchid $54

Add some highlights
Adding a light-colored highlighting product will draw attention to wherever you apply it. Go for the area under your eyebrows, in the corner of your eyes, along the bridge of your nose and across the tops of your cheeks. For a sexy look, add a bit of highlighter to the “cupid’s bow” – the area just above the center of your top lip. You can find highlighting products with a little sheen or sparkle for special occasions. Otherwise, a concealer in a skin tone that’s a shade or two lighter than your complexion works great.

Open your eyes
To make your eyes look bigger, avoid dark, drastic eye liner. Instead you can use a bit of a dark shadow to make a smokey liner effect at the edges of your lashes. Apply two to three layers of glossy black mascara to give your eyes a youthful, sexy fringe.

Seal the lips
You can line your lips with a color that matches your lip color, but don’t vary from that, or your create an aged look. Keep your lip color a few shades darker than your natural lips and finish with a bit of gloss in the center of your upper and lower lips.
