Sparkle this New Year’s Eve with these dazzling makeup tips for the eyes and the body.
Ring in the New Year with winged tipped eyes. The web, unfortunately, has many non-professionals offering beauty and makeup advice. However, after a diligent search, a detailed tutorial on how to dramatize the eyes with wing tips was found on youtube.com. The attached video offers an everyday look, but it is in this professional’s opinion that too much heavy eye makeup, especially during the day is never a good idea. Makeup is to accentuate the features, not hide them. That being said, her advice on how to perform winged tipped eyes is extremely useful. It is more of a nighttime look for an evening out, which can be glammed through creating a shadowy eye or using glitter eye shadow. Wing tips during the day are fine with a lesser line or a lighter color. To create a perfect wing line, take a mini Post-it note, and stick it to the eye angled slightly up aligned with the bottom water line. As you apply the eyeliner, go over the paper. Remove the Post-it and a perfect little wing tip has been drawn. Then fill in the rest of the eye with the pencil for more or less drama.
Post-its are available at Staples on Sunrise Highway in Valley Stream. Recommended gel eyeliner is Maybelline’s 24HR Lasting Drama by EyeStudio. Available at CVS on Merrick Road in Lynbrook for $10.99 it comes with the gel and applicator brush and is available in colors such as black, brown, eggplant, charcoal and forest. It is recommended to have a seasonal color analysis to choose your proper shades and tones. Visit Clear Skin Salon in West Hempstead for a Color Me Beautiful consultation.
Add a little shimmer to the face, shoulders and décolletage with Silken Earth Translucent Base Body Shimmer by Aubrey. Apply the silky powder with a large tipped makeup brush to the desired areas for extra glimmer. For the lips, read Hot Lips for the Holidays for a glamorous glitter lip. Aubrey Organics are available on the web or on Long Island at health food stores such as The Vitamin Shoppe on Long Beach Road in Oceanside.
The above dazzling makeup tips and ideas are for eveningwear, nightclubs and parties. Women who are beginning to see fine lines around the lip and eye area should avoid glitter as it will land in the creases and accentuate the lines.
