Holiday Makeup from Clarins

Clarins new Gloss Appeal Lip Gloss has radiant gold and silver shimmer pigments that immediately catch the light to produce sparkling shine. Lips receive ultra-shiny, ultra-smoothing, ultra-plumping transparent colour from the slanted foam tip applicator that allows you to perfectly define and shape, creating exquisitely irresistible lips with a tasty touch of sweetness.

Truly Matte Shine Stopper Powder Compact. When armed with this convenient treatment compact, you can set your makeup and absorb excess shine wherever you are. Your confidence will soar knowing that imperfections are hidden, unwanted shine is curbed, and skin stays flawless all day long.

I received this from the lovely people at Clarins and wanted to share with you. I am always looking for makeup tips and tricks!

"Clarins Celebrity Makeup Artist, Nick Barose takes the guesswork out of creating the perfect holiday look. Barose has recently created ultra-glam looks for Hillary Duff, Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively, and Grey’s Anatomy’s Katherine Heigl. Straight from the red carpet come these answers to his top five frequently asked holiday make-up questions.

What is the holiday makeup trend this season?
To achieve this years classic monochromatic look try using washes of gold on eyes, checks and lips. This is a festive look that works for everyone and is easy to achieve by using Clarins Soft Cream Eye Colour in Gold. It blends evenly giving skin a warm glow.
What asset should get more attention this holiday season, the eyes or lips?
The eyes can make any man melt this winter with flirty lashes. Applying Clarins Wonder Length Mascara to the top and bottom lashes and then running a shimmery pale gold pencil along the lashes helps them standout. Add more drama by applying an extra coat of mascara concentrating on the outer corners of the top lashes. This will create a false eyelash effect.

Is there a product that will make party make-up last all night?
I swear by Clarins Instant Light Complexion Perfector. It is a subtle, illuminating lotion that gives the skin a nice glow that is right on trend for holiday makeup. To achieve this, mix a small pea size amount of the Complexion Perfector into your liquid foundation and blend onto skin. This product can also be used to highlight and accentuate the collarbone.

What is the biggest mistake a person can make with their holiday look?
The biggest mistake people make with their look is using way too much glitter and shimmer. It’s the holidays, not Halloween.

What should women keep in their purses for touch-ups?
During the holidays you want to stay picture perfect by keeping shine to a minimum. Clarins Truly Matte Shine Stopper Powder is what I recommend to all my clients because it matches every skin tone and absorbs excess shine.
I always make my clients keep a shimmery nude lip gloss in their purse. It is the easiest color to reapply without a mirror.

A concealer wand like Clarins Instant Light Perfecting Touch helps conceal blemishes, undereye circles and any other imperfections. It gives you great coverage and doesn’t take up any room in a clutch or purse.
Another must is cotton swabs to fix smudges or feathering around the lips. "
You can go to the Clarins website for more information or to see colors and makeup. I fully endorse the Gloss Appeal lip gloss, its so shiny and smooth! I would love to see what the Shine Stopper Powder (hello T-zone!) is all about plus the fragrances are lovely, I'm sure.

Hey, I love reading your blog and keeping up with the latest beauty must-haves! While you're on the topic of Holiday season ideas, I was wondering if you'd seen the new Diesel Fuel For life limited edition fragrances? The packaging is amazing. There's a small vial on a pocket chain, or a gorgeous bottle wrapped in gilded chains. Glamorama!
