Holiday Make Up Guide – Part 2: Golden eyes, creamy pink lips

Find your inner golden goddess this holiday season while you look like a Grecian princess in this darilng deep pink dress with gold detailing. We think all you need to take it from gorgeous to perfection is Yves Saint Laurent’s “White Gold” Celebration Palette, which features Tender Rose blush, Starry Rose highlighter, three eyeshadows (Heavenly Beige, Magic Copper, and Moonlit Burgundy), and three lip colors (Pure Garnet, Natural Beige, and Bohemia Rose), and Simply Gold Gloss. We recommend Magic Copper all over lid with Moonlit Burgundy in the crease and Heavenly Beige to highlight the brow. You could even try the Starry Rose highlighter if it isn’t too shimmery for your taste as a brow highlighter! Be sure to swipe on Tender Rose blush on the apples of your cheeks, while applying Starry Rose on your cheekbones, forehead, and chin for added radiance. Dust shoulders and d colletage with Starry Rose to really distract the male variety wherever you go! For luscious lips, we’re feeling Bohemia Rose with Simply Gold gloss patted on top for shimmery lips with gold sparkles.

This look is all about playing with golds and bronzes, keeping the face fairly natural and tame; the dress is bold and eye-catching on its own. To add more oomph to your look, try a pair of false lashes–not too dramatic–to achieve it without taking away from the rest. It’s important to give your face and body a healthy dose of “glow.”  We love Jergen’s shimmery glow lotion, and we also love dusting beauty powders (like Peach Haze from MAC) along shoulders. Play up features, but this look is meant to compliment the dress while keeping the dress the central piece of the evening (we just think it’s gorgeous, don’t you?). If you must go ultra-glam, pump up the eyes with a truer gold like MAC’s Goldmine, but we think peachy-coral and rosy lips suit this dress best!
