Get the Look: Holiday Glam

 Makeup: Joy David-Tilberg, Model: Jenna (Peggi Lepage) Assistant: Heather

Glitter, sparkle, and shimmer is in full force now that the holidays are just around the corner! Don’t be afraid to add a little bling to your look as you head out to your many holiday parties.

The look I created is classic Old Hollywood with a slight twist. It’s all about glowing skin, bold brows, winged liner and bold luscious lips. Take this iconic look and play around with different colours.

Get the Look:

  1. Even out your skin with a foundation that has a semi-matte finish and good coverage.
  2. To balance a bold lip you need to have a full brow. I used Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Brow which is a water-proof formula. If you’re new to filling in your brows, using this gel will take some time to get used to but you can be sure your brows will be there until you remove your makeup! The best way to use this is to dab a pin-size drop onto your hand and dip your angled brush in it. Remove the excess off on a tissue. Use light strokes in the direction of your hair growth and only apply where you need it. If you need to soften or blend, do it quickly because it sets rather quickly. This is excellent over top of faded tattooed brows too.
  3. If you love cream shadows that won’t budge you must have the Make Up For Ever Black Tango Palette (limited edition palette for the holidays). I adore these shadows because they glide onto the eyes and blend superbly! The palette includes black with red highlights, black with green highlights, black with blue highlights and an ivory shade. For this look, I used the Ivory shade as the base and concentrated more in the inner corner and brow bone. Rather than using a traditional black liner, I chose the black with blue highlights which is just beautiful. It has a slight metallic finish and looks stunning when the light catches it. I used a thin liner brush and gradually thickened the line until I was satisfied with the shape.
  4. Over top of the ivory shade from MUFE, I used this absolutely stunning gold shadow from Lise Watier. I also used this to highlight her cheekbones, cupid’s bow and even dabbed some onto the lips. It has to be one of my favourite gold shadows I own. The texture is luxurious and is velvety smooth. I was a little bummed when I received it though because it was shattered. I will have to give it some makeup fix TLC – I love it that much!
  5. With all the yummy eats you’ll be chomping on and champagne you’ll be sipping, you’ll want a lip colour that won’t budge. If you haven’t tried Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Rouge lippies you must. It’s one of the best long-lasting formulas I’ve tried and it doesn’t dry out the lips. The clear gloss keeps your lips hydrated for a long time even after eating. The shine disappears but the gloss keeps your lips feeling comfortable. I used #9 on Jenna which is a gorgeous burgundy shade. The gold shimmer looks amazing over top. Just add a little to the center of your lips.

Give your hair some sexy waves, add some blingy jewelry and your holiday glam look is complete!

Makeup 101: Wear Metallics For Fall

 

 

 Makeup: Joy David-Tilberg, Hair: Donna Marie De Leon, Model: Masha (Elmer Olson), Photo Assistant: Helen Yinn

If a bold, dark lip isn’t for you here’s one trend everyone can definitely wear this Fall: metallics. Metallics come in all different shades and look instantly richer and oh-so luxe. There are many ways to wear it so have fun and experiment.

To wear a metallic smokey eye here is a MTV Fora tutorial from MTV Canada’s Head Makeup Artist Lucky Bromhead!

Try:

  • A wash of colour on the eye lids for day wear in gold, bronze, olive, or purple. Finish with black mascara and black liner (optional) for contrast.
  • Metallic liners in deep purple, emerald green or navy are a subtle way to wear it for day. It’s a nice alternative to black and brown. For some fun at night line the eyes in gold, silver or cobalt blue!
  • I’m kind of loving metallic lipsticks right now especially in copper. It’s just such a perfect shade for Fall.

Product List:

  • Face: Benefit Hello Flawless Brightening Foundation, Cover FX Concealer, Clinique Translucent Powder #8
  • Cheeks: Benefit Hoola Bronzer, NARS Lovejoy Blush, LIT Cosmetics Beach Baby Metallic Glitter cheek bones
  • Eyes: Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in Gold, L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in Gold Imperial, LIT Cosmetics Beach Baby Metallic Glitter
  • Brows: Clarins Eye Brow Palette, L’Oreal Elnett Hairspray to set brows
  • Lips: Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment, Clarins Rouge Prodige Copper Brown, Shu Uemura Unlimited  Supreme Matte Lipstick in Brilliant Gold to the center of lips
