With the holiday parties in full swing, it's the time of the season where we find ourselves searching for a new, special look. We've talked about little tweaks we can make to amp our everyday look for all those holiday fiestas, but what if you want to channel the simple, classic glamour of old Hollywood? No one has done a better job of this than Charlize Theron. She has the classic beauty, and the clean, defined features that characterized screen siren-glamour in the golden age of film. It is THE perfect look for holiday parties, and is super-simple to achieve!
Get the look for less with our newest holiday collection - Puttin' on the Glitz (ONLY $25!!!):
For a sultry, doe-eyed stare a la Charlize, dab a soft, pearlescent cream shadow from lash line to crease, blending upwards. Mix the silver and gold shades in the split-bullet highlighter (great for eyes, lips and cheeks!) for the perfect shade and finish.
Next, line upper lash line only with Jean-Michelle Le Stylo Pour Les Yeux in Noir. Be sure to keep line thin, and as close to lashes as possible. Use a cotton swab to soften and blend the line for a subtle, sexy look.
Now, enhance lashes with two generous coats of a lengthening mascara like Jean-Michelle Mascara Magique in Noir.
Apply a cream concealer under eyes to brighten and camouflage circles and redness. Jean-Michelle Satine Concealer is super-pigmented and has a lovely satin finish, so skin looks like a dream!
Mimic the subtle, matte perfection of Charlize Theron's skin by dusting a light, oil-absorbing powder over your entire face, beginning at your t-zone and blending outward. Jean-Michelle Satine Translucent Powder sets makeup beautifully and has a flattering, natural-matte finish.
For a warm glow, use the gold side of the split-bullet highlighter to accent cheekbones. All you need to do is dab a bit on the highest part of the cheek, and pat with fingers to blend.
Now it's time to turn up the drama! Apply a rich, cool-toned red to add instant glamour to this classic party look. Blue-based reds are universally sexy and make teeth look whiter. Jean-Michelle Moisture-Riche Lip Couleur in Red Glace is one of my favorites!
Up your glamour quotient yet again by applying 2 coats of Jean-Michelle Laque Luisant Nail Enamel in Red Glace(this particular shade is only available as part of the collection). Whoa, Nellie!
Finishing Touch: Dab pulse points with a bit of the most enticing fragrance ever...
...And, you're done! See how easy that was?
Now, to complete this classic, sophisticated look, consider adding chandelier-style earrings or a nice strand of pearls... and enjoy the party!
Don't forget, everything you need to channel a little "Charlize" this season is included in our newest, glitziest collection yet! Puttin' on the Glitz is only $25.00 for a limited time.
