How to Rock a Red Lip “Don’t be afraid of a red lip! Most women are intimidated by red lipstick, but everyone can find the perfect red shade. And there is no better time to rock a red lip than the holidays!
The best way to choose your red lip is to go to the counter and try it on! If it looks good, it’s your color. You might be surprised at how many hues of red actually work for you. My current holiday favorite is CHANEL ROUGE COCO in PARIS.
The trick to a perfect red lip is to make it last! Feather out your foundation slightly onto the lips. Use a natural color lip liner to line the mouth - not red. After you’ve applied your lipstick, apply a bit of powder with a puff to really make the color last.”
Glowing, Radiant Skin the Morning After “All these late night holiday celebrations are going to take a toll on our skin! But with a few simple tricks, we can look as radiant on New Years Day as we did on Thanksgiving.
When you get home at night, drench a wash cloth, roll it up, and stick it in the freezer. When you wake up in the morning, apply the cold cloth to your face. This instantly de puffs your face and awakens your skin. After all the drinking and late night partying, our skin needs to be regenerated and revived! CHANEL SUBLIMAGE ESSENTIAL REGENERATING CREAM regenerates and detoxes the skin, has a silky light texture, and absorbs instantly. Skin looks and feels fresh and revived. Wait ten to fifteen minutes after applying the serum before applying makeup.”
How to Take Your Makeup from Day to Night “There are a few quick and simple tricks to take your makeup from the office to the office party. Everyone needs a great mascara. I love CHANEL INIMITABLE MASCARA in NOIR BLACK. Don’t be afraid to use black, and don’t be afraid to use two to three coats.
After you’ve applied the mascara, use a flat liner brush to also apply mascara to the base of the top and bottom lashes. This is a trick that really makes the eyes pop.
Next, add a glowy cheek color like CHANEL LES TISSAGES DE CHANEL BLUSH DUO TWEED EFFECT in TWEED FUCHSIA. Finally, a high-shine, shimmery gloss. I love CHANEL LEVRES SCINTILLANTES GLOSSIMER in WILD ROSE. These simple steps add instant glamour, and in minutes you’re gorgeous and ready to party!”
