Silver and Gold: Hot Holiday Looks!

December 21, 2009

Only five days until Christmas?! My lord, does time fly! If you’re still in need of a last minute gift or ideas for a great holiday look, have no fear! I’ve got tips and ideas this week to make your holidays merry and bright.

Today, I draw my inspiration from a classic Christmas song, “Silver and Gold.” After all, you can’t go wrong with precious metals!

Silver Siren

For a soft, romantic winter look, take a cue from silver screen beauties Rose Byrne and Leighton Meester and let the eyes tell all.

Okay, so the look isn’t overtly silver, but the cool undertones of the plums and grays make for a pretty shimmery look. You can get a similar effect using Lancome’s Ltd. Ed. Color Design Sensational Effects Eye Palette in Starlette and Stunning, which features coordinated shades to get a fool-proof, party-ready smoky eye ($31.50 on BeFlurt.com). Pair it with a light pink lip–I suggest either MAC Lipstick in Syrup ($9.80 on BeFlurt.com) or MAC Slimshine Lipstick in Scant ($10.15 on BeFlurt.com). Syrup is a frosty light pink, whereas Scant is a little darker in hue, but goes on more sheer than MAC’s usual lipsticks.

To finish the look, try patting on a layer of silver glitter to either your eyes or your lips. An extra fine glitter in a white silver hue will work best to add just the right amount of shimmer. I suggest Make Up For Ever’s Glitters in either Multicolored White 3 or Multicolored Silver 13 ($13 on Sephora.com) or Jane Iredale’s 24-Karat Gold Dust in Silver (JaneIredale.com). A fun fact about Jane Iredale’s Gold Dust is that these pure 24K gold powders are FDA-approved, so they are safe to eat! And totally safe to use on your kissers. 😉

Golden Girl

Would you rather “go for the gold?” Then turn the heat up a notch with the Lancome Ltd. Ed. Color Design Sensational Effects Eye Palette in Pampered and Priveleged ($31.50 on BeFlurt.com). This beautiful compact features six coordinated shades with warm undertones of pink, brown, and gold. Together, these shades will create a natural-looking eye with just the right amount of golden shimmer.

For an extra festive look, add a pair of red lips! A bright classic red lip color is always a fun choice, and has been recently spotted all over Hollywood.

We currently have a fantastic red–chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Color in 127 Dazzling ($22.40 on BeFlurt.com). This fabulous lipstick is a matte red with a bit of an orange undertone, so it will work best with olive skin tones. Our MAC Lipstick in Party Line is a great alternative, if you want a less flashy look ($9.80 on BeFlurt.com).

If you’ve got a little more bravada, swap the red lipstick for a more daring hue–hot pink! Rihanna recently did the look at the VEVO launch event earlier this month:

To get the same look, pair Lancome’s Pampered and Priveleged palette with MAC Lipstick in Girl About Town ($9.80 on BeFlurt.com).
