Susan Posnick on How to Sparkle and Shine Through the Holidays

The holiday season is a time for dazzle, sparkle, and shine. And that includes makeup looks of course! Whether you spend your holiday season rushing to find the perfect gifts for loved ones, taking a Holiday vacation, dancing the night away at holiday parties, or curled up on the couch watching Hallmark movies all night, to make your makeup look last, you’ll need healthy products you know will stay in place and let YOU shine all night long. Susan Posnick’s COLORFLO foundation/sun protection and COLORCORRECT will keep you looking fresh while dancing the night away.

We know the holidays can take a toll on your beauty sleep. Using Susan Posnick’s dual-ended COLORCORRECT under the eye, you can hide those ‘lack of sleep’ circles with the Correcting side and brighten your eyes with the Highlighting side. Once your skin looks bright and fresh, try one of the several classic or dramatic looks below to bring cheer to your holiday looks.

Get a Naturally Classic Makeup Look

It’s hard to beat the infamous holiday look of a classic winged liner and red lips. This look is versatile and works for a night out or a day at the office. The COLOREYEDEFINE liner in shade Jet/Moonstone is perfect for that sharp wing. Using COLORCOATED mascara on only the top lashes will make sure to draw attention to your eyes. But the real attention grabber is the bright red lipstick in this look. Our COLORESSENTIAL lipstick in shades Paris-Red or Tokyo-Red are the best choices for that pop of vibrant color.

Add some Sparkle and Shine to Your Holiday Makeup

While classic holiday makeup looks like red lips and winged eyeliner are always a must for family gatherings or romantic cocktails by the fireplace, don’t be shy to add some shimmer to your eyes to really make your look shine. COLOREYEDEFINE in shade Platinum/Gold is a great choice for an eye -brightening light shimmer or use Bronze/Copper to add a punch of vibrancy that is sure to make your eyes dazzle.

Using our COLORFLO Shimmer brush for a beautiful all- over glow, or our ILLUMINATES in Champagne, Whisper, and Seduction on your cheeks, eyes, and lips, make for the perfect little extra sparkle.

Wondering which ILLUMINATES shade to choose? They are all universal and interchangeable colors, but if you need a little guidance…

Whisper - a pale lilac, perfect for pink undertones

Seduction - a pale peach, perfect for more yellow or golden undertones

Champagne - perfect for ALL skin shades

Holiday Makeups that Sparkle and Shine

Jewel-Toned Eyeshadows

COLOREYEDEFINE eyeshadows in shades Tourmaline /Aquamarine, Turquoise/Topaz, or Amethyst/Opal are gorgeous jewel tones.

NYE Smokey Metallic

New Year’s Eve and it’s time for Glamour and looking fabulous past midnight and into the New Year. A smokey eye is a great go-to look for NYE. It’s dramatic and fun, and the natural smudged look will be great to hide any imperfections that arise from all your toasts and dancing through the evening. You can use COLOREYEDEFINE in the shade Smokey Quartz/Rose Quartz for a lighter smokey eye, or go all out with Jet/Moonstone for a darker, more dramatic look.

Top Off Your New Look

No makeup routine is complete without the perfect mascara. Using our COLORCOATED mascara is a great choice to top off your look. Using mascara only on the top lashes will define and bring attention to your eyes. COLORCOATED mascara uses unique peptides and natural extracts to strengthen the hair follicles and nourish the lash, thereby encouraging healthy thicker lashes. It provides lash extension as it separates, coats, and lifts each individual lash. Luxurious buildable all-day color and volume, plus its cruelty-free!

The holiday season is the perfect time to experiment with your looks and try new things. Whether you go for a subtle glam look, a dramatic wing, or a smokey eye, the most important thing is to have fun with it!
