NC – According to makeup artist Sonia Kashuk, the beauty look topping holiday wish lists this year begins with fresh, glowing skin. We recently asked the beauty industry maven, whose eponymous self-titled makeup line is available exclusively at Target, to share her top tips for a beauty-filled holiday season.
With holiday parties and late nights, a lack of sleep can result in tired skin. “Glowing skin is a must throughout holiday festivities” says Kashuk. With colder months settling in, look for an ultra rich and hydrating moisturizer. For that extra glow, Kashuk suggests regular mini at-home facials with steaming, followed by enriched serums to improve skin texture and finish, creating a perfect canvas for makeup application.
When it comes to eye colour, keep hues classic for ultra elegance. “A sultry, smoky eye is a staple for any occasion, especially the holidays” says Kashuk. Apply the lightest colour first, and then blend the deepest tones into the lash line and crease, creating definition and drama. Insider beauty tip: Keep drop off to a minimum when working with dark, deep colours by tapping off excess powder before applying to eyes. Finish the face with a glossy nude lip for the ultimate sexy look.
Bold lips are big this season and a classic red bullet is a must for every woman’s makeup bag. “The colour and tone will brighten the face, while creating a super feminine, sophisticated and strong statement,” says Kashuk. Let lips take centre stage by pairing with a fresh face and sleek cat eye. Using a bent eyeliner brush and black gel liner, start with a thin line at the inner corner of the eye and increase thickness towards the outer edge. “The elongated line will give you a holiday look worthy of the red carpet.”
