Makeup for the holidays - Party in red lips and porcelain skin

The ultimate feminine look; a porcelain complexion paired with red lips is glamorous for holiday parties.

Red Lips

Whether you choose a matte or a red lipstick with some shine, be sure to first prepare your lips with a good balm. I have had a few makeup artists use the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant on me before applying red lippie. Get some help at a good makeup counter on choosing the right red shade for you.

Porcelain skin

It must be an overload on self-tanners, we are no longer afraid of looking pale and porcelain. Winter is the perfect time to do this look because the cold wind brings out the rosiness in our cheeks; just enough to give our perfect-looking complexion some color. Remember to also prep your skin for foundation and choose a foundation with some luminosity in it. Set the foundation with a dusting of face powder (like this one here) or with blotting paper (like this one here) and you are good to go!
