3 Day to Night Holiday Party Makeup Tips

Tis' the season to party hop!  What's a girl to do when she goes from a casual family gathering to a celebrating the holidays with her besties at a chic cocktail lounge? She must be prepared to turn it up like Miss Selena Gomez and Miss Taylor Swift!  I'm obsessed with these two looks for holiday party inspiration.  Here are three easy ways to take your makeup from day to night.

  1. Amp up your eyes.  Typically, I wear mascara and call it a day, but when it's time to party, defining your lids and adding a little bit of sparkle to the inner corners and center are absolute musts.  If you’re not into sparkle, a nice metallic silver or gold shade will do.  To take the guesswork out, use an eye shadow palette with a few complimentary colors in different textures.
  2. Add highlighter.  Let's face it, everyone looks better in a candlelit glow.  A few strokes of highlighter on the top of your cheekbones, center of your forehead and chin will make your skin gleam and help accentuate all the right places.  Oh, and don’t forget your décolletage!
  3. Play up your pout.  Simply add color.  Whether you’re a gloss girl or like to wear full on matte lipstick, opt for a statement lip in the texture of your choice.
