‘Tis the Season for Glam Makeup

‘Tis the season for a little extra glam! The holidays are the perfect excuse to add a little sparkle  … and your makeup is no exception. I asked Lexi of SMITHBEAUTY to share her holiday party go-to look (along with her favorite products to achieve it) to help prepare us for the celebrations ahead! 

My holiday go-to look is a gold glitter halo eye with faux mink lashes and a deep red lip. These colors translate really well on almost everyone versus a silver glitter eye.

*Note: Don’t worry … I Googled it for you! The “Halo Eye” technique is strategically sandwiching a lighter color between a darker color on the upper and lower lids. It creates the appearance of a larger, rounder eye. – L 

My number one MUST for a glam holiday look is the Stila Shimmer and Glow Liquid Shadow.
For a more cost-effective option, NYX cosmetics makes a very comparable product for a third of the price.

For lashes, I love the Ardell Lash Faux Mink Wispies. They are my absolute favorite; they really dress up any look.

For lips, I love the formula of the Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks because they are super-smooth and creamy. They aren’t drying and they stay on all night. Try the shade “Milan” for a deep, cranberry red. Some shades are available at Ulta or on the Ofra website. They have over 60 shades available, so you can find your perfect hue.
