Sparkly Eye Makeup

Beauties, it really is the greatest time of year when you can wear all of the sparkly glitter! If you have ever wanted to rock something sparkly in your look, the holiday season is the perfect time to do it! I recommend using a sparkly eyeshadow to really amp up your look!

So how can you find your ideal red lipstick?

First of all, while there are multiple shades of red lipstick out there, not everyone loves wearing red lipstick. So, if you are unsure of wearing red lipstick, try out a lip gloss instead! Red lip glosses come in all sorts of pigment levels and undertones, so the following advice will be helpful in which one to choose.


Lipstick, like our skin, comes in multiple undertones.

If you have a cool undertone, you usually see the following colors in your skin tone: blue, purple, olive, or golden. It is best for you to choose a blue-based red lipstick.

If you have a warm undertone, you usually see the following colors in your skintone: red, yellow, orange. It is best for you to choose a yellow- or orange-based red lipstick.

If you generally see a pinkish color in your skin, and none of the above colors are prominent in your skin, then you are most likely a neutral undertone. Basically that means that you probably don't lean towards warm or cool! The biggest advantage to having a neutral undertone? You can wear all of the red lipsticks mentioned above!

This same process applies to choosing a red lip gloss, beauties! The advantage of choosing a lip gloss over a lipstick is that you get all the lovely shine of a gloss, and color of a lipstick, without the commitment and color stain of a lipstick!

And don't forget about your complexion, beauties! Especially while we are still in the midst of the pandemic!

Make It Matte

For those of you who are gathering this holiday season, we are still in a pandemic. And because of that, you may need to wear a mask at your gathering! Be sure to keep your complexion makeup matted, so it will sit nicely under your holiday mask!!

I recommend using a mattifying setting spray layered with a setting powder. I always like to use my setting spray first, then apply powder after it has dried. I recommend 1-2 sprays for the entire face. And make sure to use a very light dusting of your setting powder!

I also recommend doing the same routine inside your face mask! Spray your face mask once with your setting spray, let dry. Then lightly dust your setting powder on top of the spray. You're welcome!!

Doing this method will insure that your makeup doesn't move under your face mask, and it will keep everything in place while you socialize!

Lots of love and lipstick,
