Chic Cool Makeup for Holiday Parties

Hey, hey beauties!! 'Tis the season for holiday parties, so I've come up with this chic work-appropriate look that can easily transition for the after-hour office shindig. I'm sticking to non-traditional Christmas colors for this one and opting for blue (I actually wore it to a Hanukkah party). Blue can be a bit intimidating to some people and not just for the office, but in general, however, it's actually quite flattering when sticking to matte eyeshadows. Read more to see what I mean :)

Read on for products, tips & more pix!!!

The Look: Blue and Blonde
The Look: clean, luminous skin and coral cheekbones are emphasized with pulled-back hair and effortless makeup. The matte blue mini-smokey brings all attention to the eyes, which are complimented with neutral peachy matte lips. 

Products Used (SKIN)
Products Used (Eyes):

BLUE EYESHADOW TIP: Pair the cool blue lid with warmer brown tones in the crease and the transition. I chose ochre, yellow gold and shimmery brown to help the blue pop! Yellow is opposite of blue on the color wheel, so choosing these undertones will make the blue stand out in a more flattering way.
Hair: Luxy Hair Ombré Blonde extensions
  • HAIR TIP: Dress your pony tail for the holiday season by wrapping a section of hair around the base elastic, then secure in place. Brush out the baby hairs for a youthful, fresh appearance.

Earring: Celestine Jewelry "Crystal Leaf" earring cuff

LIPS: NYX Cosmetics lip liner in Natural, topped with NYX Cosmetics matte lipsticks in Temptress and Forbidden (mixed). 
What will you wear to your next holiday party?
