Here are some holiday make up tips from Clarins’ Celebrity Beauty Artist, Pati Dubroff. Pati is one of Hollywood’s top makeup artist — working red carpets with the likes of Naomi Watts, Julianne Moore, Megan Fox and Eva Mendes. She’s created two easy looks with the limited edition Eye Quartet Mineral Palette in Smokey Passion for this Holiday season.
Silver Lids — A dramatic look that shows off this season’s hottest trend: metallic makeup
Use the black tone to line close to the lashline with a small wet eyeshadow brush to intensify the hold. Sweep the copper tone in the crease of the eye, and then pack on the silver shade over the lid. Add lots of black mascara on the upper lashes.
Smokey, Shimmering Eye — A modern smokey look that takes years off the eyes
Using a black or dark grey pencil, smudge close to the lash line and up onto the lid. Use the pencil to add depth to the crease of the eye and underneath if you want more intensity. Top with black shadow close to the lashline, blending up and onto the lid. Use the grey shadow on the lid and the bronze one through the crease. Add a spot of shine on the inner corder and center of lid with the silver. Use a black pencil to intensify the water line )inner rim upper and lower and finish with lots of black mascara. By penciling in the crease to create depth, you can erase years from your eye be re-creating the contour. Conversely, applying light shades on the brow bone ages the entire face.
I have to tell you that I am a HUGE Clarins fan. I love their colors and the quality of their products. They’re not only gorgeously presented but they never aggravate my sensitive skin even in the slightest. I highly recommend their holiday collection. Clarins products are the perfect gift for the woman in your life or just treat yourself to an updated look this holiday season. You can find Clarins products at select department stores and fine specialty stores nationwide.
