I have a love hate with this time of year. Yes, I go to lots of parties year round, and while I dress for the occasion I rarely go overboard with my makeup. I’m more of a keep it simple gal. When Condé Nast and Mary Kay challenged me to create one of their holiday looks, and sent me a BIG box of gorgeous cosmetics, I took a deep breath, turned on my web cam and decided to show you just how I go from plain Jane to glamour gal in less than 20 minutes.
I know that’s long for a video, but as always, I made some mistakes along the way. I hope that you learn a little something, have a few laughs, and PLEASE leave me some of YOUR how-to tips in the comments. I’m trying to fake it til I make it, ’cause not everyone can have a personal makeup artist.
Sleek and sexy 1970s style; menswear-inspired but still feminine.
The Glam is all in
The winged eye liner and FIRE red lips.
