Makeup & Muses: The Holiday Party Look

12/03/2010

This time of year, you muses are probably going to attend many holiday parties. So much goes into the personal preparation for these parties, from your hair to your makeup. Here is a small tutorial to show you how to get your holiday look in no time!

I got this idea from Allure.


1. Coat your eyes with a shadow base to keep your color from fading.

2. Line your lashes and blend your creases. Smudge the lower lashes.

3. Trace with a waterproof liner and finish it with dark black mascara.






1. Use non-sticky hairspray to keep your look in place.

2. Curl large sections of your hair and allow your fingers to flow through your hair from root to tip.

3. Bring a set of bobby pins so that you can easily go from a tossed, messy flowing look to a semi-controlled up-do.










1. Like smoky eyes, bold lips are very popular on the runway this season. Bring color to your look with a fuchsia, pink or red bold lip.

2. Layering red lipstick colors will give you a strong look in seconds.

  13. Awesome tips, Cheryl...this totally helped me last night when I went to the Intercollegiate Yule Ball yesterday and settled for the "semi-controlled up-do"! :D I love how slightly messy hair can also look really casual and attractive.
