Are you ready to end this year with a memorable bang? Be the known look of the party and capture each person’s eye in just a flash. Go from day to night with some quick yet glamorous tricks of this years beauty. Makeup artist Fulvia Farolfi suggests softness for the eyes, cheeks, and lips.
Eyes: Line with a black pencil, or liquid eye liner. One great product is Maybeline waterproof liquid liner. If you have a steady hand, this can be a swish. If not, go with your trusty black pencil. This year line the outer corners, then curl lashes, use Maybeline the Falsies Volume Express, this mascara plumps without clumps. It’s nice curved brush, helps intensify the curl, the length, and the thickness like false eyelashes, but no glue or frustration! Put on top and lower lashes focusing of the outer corners of lids, if eyes are big. Just top corner lids if eyes are smaller.
Cheeks: Brush a pale pink on the apples of your cheeks. Avon True Color in Heavenly Pink will enhance grace and reservation. another quality blush in a pinch is Maybeline New York in plushed plum, goes on lightly and easily.
Lips: In these cold harsh conditions it’s a good idea to wear your favorite lip balm, you don’t have to go all out – ChapStick works just fine and doesn’t glide those polished lips down to your chin. Wet n’Wild makes a fabulous color # 514A. It’s light yet makes lips remarkable. These tricks should take about 5 minutes to apply.
Hair: the salon look without the appointment. With dry unwashed hair, flip upside down, spay roots of hair with a volumizing spray and blow out for 2 minutes. Flip head back up, and straighten with a prefered curved flat iron, or a big barrel curling iron. Section hair in in 3-inch sections. Always curl the ends under, this adds bounce, and elegance. Part to the side, brush out, then spray hair with a light spray. this should take no more than 5 minutes. If the blowout isn’t for you ladies, the updo is always influential. Without using a brush gather dry hair with your fingers into a high poney tail and secure with a scrunchie. Twirl the poney to the ends and then rotate hair around scrunchie, and fasten. Use fingers to loosen the bun, to your desired look. For extra pizzaz use a thin stretchy headband wrap. Here is where you can fancy it up. Use a sparkly band or something that coinsides with your outfit. Remember, this type of band will raise the updo a tad, giving it stunning polished appeal.Ladies this takes 3 minutes.
Nails: forgett the old French manicure. Wipe off old polish, buff nails, I use an electric buffer/shaper that’s affordable at your local drugstore. Rub a qood quality lotion, I recogmend a coco-butter cream, or lotion. Rub into nails and cuticles. The business gal today is using a light tone polish, O.P.I. is my favorite. Lasts long and doesn’t chip. But you can go bare with just the buffing and hand cream, your nails will shine. This takes about 4 minutes.
Now in about 15 to 20 minutes your day to dashing night is all set. Go have fun and be the light of the party.
