Look your best in holiday photos! 5 Party Makeup Tips from the Pros
We aren’t sure what’s more exciting- all the holiday parties that are about to happen, or all the holiday collection pallet’s that cover Sephora’s shelves. But that’s just the beginning! Festive gatherings are the highlight of the season- decadent buffets, bottle after bottle of wine, warm fire places and even warmer hugs. You have the perfect dress and some cheerful new cosmetics to play with, and the best night ahead is set! Make sure you look good an hour and two glasses in with our top 5 party makeup tips and avoid the regretful tagging on Facebook.
1) Add some extra color to your cheeks.
Bri T: Put on just a bit more bronzer/blush than normal so it shows more in your photos. *We usually like All Night Long Setting Spray by Urban Decay.
2) Wear camera-ready foundation.
Bianca S: The best tip for looking amazing in your holiday photos is wearing camera appropriate foundation. its an unfortunate circumstance when your makeup looks stunning in person and pasty white in photographs. This is due to the foundations ingredients reflecting inappropriately with the flash of the camera. Makeup Forever, SmashBox and many other brands carry foundations that will prevent disrupting your complexion in photographs. After your holiday party you can freshen up with something less complicated like a nice sugar scrub or aloe face wash.
3) Don’t shine bright like a diamond.
Amelia C: Make friends with blotting powder. Blotting powder is not the same as powder foundation or setting powder- it’s a much finer powder compacted and it’s sole purpose is to deshine. The best way to look like you have a smooth, even complexion is to be matte in photos. Don’t outshine the star on the tree, get yourself a blotting powder.
4) Get your smooth on.
Hayley A: When doing your hair watch for pesky fly aways. Especially if your doing a low knot or bun. It doesn’t have to be tight to the head to be smooth, a bit of shine serum ran through the front of your hair before pulling it back loosely.
5) Happy Holidays! Emphasis on Happy!
Kay H: The best tip I can give for holiday pictures although it may seem cheesy, is your smile. No matter how much makeup we have on we always look better with a smile on our face.
