‘Tis the season to be decadent with your makeup look. Turn on the sultry this holiday season with these fun products:
Limited Edition Smoke & Mirrors Smoky Eye Kit by Jane Iredale helps create luxurious, pigmented eyes that are sure to leave a lasting impression. The kit holds eight shades and a “how-to” guide to create your favorite smoky eye looks, from elementary to sophisticated.
Channel your inner diva with Rihanna’s two shades of VIVA GLAM Lipstick by Mac Cosmetics. Her new cool mauve shade and original blue-red with frost finish, both apply with a subtle shine and gold sparkle. Every cent of the selling price of VIVA GLAM goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS, and the lipstick includes a limited-edition, soft velvety red packaging features RiRi’s signature.
Eye Shere Liquid Eye Shadows in Opal Silk and Gold Silk by Jane Iredale are quick-drying liquid eye shadows that add some glam but won’t crease or smear.
A special night out calls for all-over shimmer. Apply Jane’s Signature Gilded Collection 24-Karat Gold Dust all over your shoulders and décolleté. Or try it on your earlobes for an unexpected dazzle that complements your favorite braid, pony or dressy updo.
