Top make-up tips for winter

lucious lips

Christmas is coming and it’s time to glam up and look super sexy under the mistletoe for that cheeky Christmas party kiss!

Professional makeup artist, Paula Rixon, offers some insider tips for this year’s hottest winter lips:

“This year’s Christmas makeup is all about being bold and having fun.  For lips, the reds that were so popular for spring and summer will move over to make way for luscious plums and indulgent, daring purples.”

Karen Loraine, co-owner of The Makeup Box Studio, shares beauty industry insights into what will dominate eyes and cheeks over the 2011 festive season:

“Shrinking violets can stay at home this party season because the makeup looks set to take centre stage are strictly daring vixen and sophisticated sultress.  Mix and match vibrant shades of smouldering purples with sultry black eyeshadows to create the look of the season.

“If you invest in only one new key piece this winter make it a good quality gold liquid eyeliner.  Apply the gold to the inner eyelid and blend two contrasting shades of purple along the middle to the outer edge of the eyes.  Highlight beneath the brow bone with a touch of the gold to give that extra sparkle – a trick you can only get away with during party season.

“Finish off the look by adding a subtle sparkle to cheekbones with a touch of soft pink gold blush.”
