The Foolproof Holiday Face By> Louise Monique
With all the events that you get invited to during the holidays, the idea of having a different look for every one of them sounds like a big Christmas ball of stress! Instead of wracking your brain and destroying your precious makeup kit with 2 dozen looks, why not just create a signature look for the season? Minimum effort for maximum impact! As a make-up artist, I’m quite simple. I don’t go crazy with make-up that much unless the situation calls for it but I’m a huge fan of classics. Yes, trends come and go but classic never goes out of style. Here I’ll share with you my signature look for the season and how I achieved it. Of course, I didn’t wake up like that! I must admit, enhancing one’s beauty takes effort. Not necessarily a LOT but a little could go a long way. Even the basics like washing your face before going to sleep makes a whole lot of difference and surprisingly, not everyone does it! How could you?! Before all the glitters and highlights, let’s start with skin. I used the Eau Thermale from Avenè to freshen up and hydrate my skin. Followed by RetexturCreme Face Primer from Theory to add moisture and prep up my skin before make-up.
For foundation, I used the Mineral Perfecting Stick in Shades 3 to highlight and shade 7 to contour. After drawing the areas where I want to highlight and contour, I blended it using a stippling brush. Since I want full coverage for this look, I used Magic Matte Oil Free Foundation in shade 5 from Theory. Even though the foundation is matte finish, I like setting it with powder since I have combination skin. I used Banana Powder from Ben Nye to set my foundation, concentrating more under my eyes, t-zone and forehead.
