Holiday Makeup Secrets

kASHIAHere come the holidays, along with a whirlwind of parties, family gatherings and other special occasions. With all the glittery fashions and picture taking, you definitely want to put your best face forward.

For a beautiful holiday glow, start with a good moisturizer, then apply primer so your foundation will glide on evenly and last for hours. One of the best primers on the market is Arbonne Makeup Primer, which was rated among the top 12 by the editors of Total Beauty. Like all Arbonne makeup products, it’s loaded with anti-aging botanicals that are beneficial to your skin.

Apply concealer beneath the eye, and also use it to highlight the brow bone, cheekbones and bridge of the nose. Sweep bronzer along the cheekbones and at the temples, then apply blush to the apples of the cheeks.

Choose pigmented shadows to give your eyes depth and drama. Then apply lengthening mascara to the lashes (It’s A Long Story by Arbonne is one of Vanity Fair’s top 5 picks). For long lasting lip color, use a pencil to both outline and fill in the lips before applying lipstick. Lastly, top off your look with a brilliant smile.
