Holiday Makeup

Not sure what makeup to wear with your glam frock and killer heels? Sick of the standard smoky eye or red lip? Here are some fun ideas and inspirations.

1. Lashes! Last year I tried false lashes, and they perfectly topped off my 60s vibe. I'm tempted to invest in some crazy feather or glitter lashes this year.
2. Dramatic colored eyeshadow Don't be afraid of colorful makeup, especially if your dress leans to the dull side. Try liner that contrasts your shadow. Layer. Paint outside the lines. If you're really unsure, read the makeup tutorials on Doe Deere, creator of many of the looks in this collage.3. Gothic lips Proud of your pucker? Stain it deep shades of burgundy, purple, blue or black. As long as you keep your eyes clean and simple, you should look like the queen of the party instead of mistress of the dark.
4. Bare face Admit that you are beautiful. Wipe on some foundation, a bit of mascara, and some faintly pink lip gloss. When you're 40, you can look back at pictures of yourself from New Year's Eve 2008 and say, "Wow, I really was a beautiful girl."

If you want something more standard glamorous for your party look, M.A.C. has looks all ready for you.

Hey there, love the blog. FYI: lots of us look just fine at 40. And by 40 we've figured out what looks flattering on us and what doesn't (not necessarily true at 25, heh).
