Looking Great For the Holidays

      Comments Off on Looking Great For the Holidays

The holidays are a special time, and when you attend celebrations you want to look special, too. Here are some tips for feeling and looking your festive best.

Hair                     

Holiday parties are all about having fun; why not start with your hair? Try out glamourous new looks. If you wear your hair down every day, sweep it up in a romantic chignon or French braid. If you have short hair, get hair extensions White Plains NY and enjoy dramatic long locks that will last all season.

Skin

Putting your best face forward starts with gorgeous, healthy skin. Achieving great skin can be challenging in the fall and winter months when cold weather and indoor heating dry out your complexion. Use a gentle creamy cleanser and moisturize regularly. Apply sunscreen in the morning; even winter sun can damage skin. Before bed, remove all makeup and apply a serum or night cream designed for regeneration and hydration.

Makeup

Workday looks will not do for an evening party. Do something dramatic such as iridescent highlighter, glittery bronze eye shadow or deep purple lips. For a classic but still striking look, go with matte red lipstick and midnight black or blue eyeliner.

Avoid false eyelashes; they can look outdated and extreme and may harm your natural lashes. Instead, make your eyelashes pop by layering two types of mascara: start with a plumping formula and follow with one that adds length. Curl gently if necessary.

Clothes

Leave that little black dress in the closet and make a more colorful entrance. All eyes will be on you when you wear a sleek floor-length style in sumptuous red velvet. Or don a strapless white mid-length dress and showcase a sparkling statement necklace. For a demure look, try a lace dress in nude or pale pink.

Shoes

Add the finishing touch to your stunning look with a new pair of shoes. High heels are always flattering; for an updated touch, choose a pair with a chain accent. In winter, you cannot go wrong with a fabulous pair of boots.
