Need a little sparkle for your next holiday party (or just any party for that matter)? Pharmaca esthetician Federica Raparelli gives us her tips for creating the perfect holiday glam look.
First, the foundation. “If you know you’re going to be taking pictures or really want full coverage, try jane iredale’s Glow Time Full-Coverage Mineral BB Cream,” Federica says. The BB Cream serves as moisturizer, primer and foundation in one, and can really give your skin a flawless look, she says. For lighter coverage, try Dr. Hauschka’s Translucent Make-Up, which Federica says gives a nice, healthy glow.
Next, sweep on a bright color to create dramatic eyes. Federica likes jane iredale’s Mystikol, featuring a creamy eyeliner and highlighter in one. For blue eyes, try Mystikol in Amethyst; for brown, try Smoky Quartz and for green, try Citrine.
For all over sparkle, Federica loves jane iredale’s 24k Gold Dust, available in a variety of shades. “It can be used as an eye shadow, mixed with lip gloss, or even mixed with moisturizer to create a glowy cream,” says Federica. “It’s lovely for the holidays!”
Get ready for the mistletoe with a festive lip color, like one of Juice Beauty’s Reflecting Glosses, packed with organic antioxidants and plant oils to nourish lips while they wow. Looking for something with serious staying power? Try a Lip Fixation from jane iredale, including lip stain and gloss in one, and available in powerful colors like Relish (a deep purple) or Passion (bright red).
