3 Easy Holiday Beauty Looks From Makeup Artist Bobbi Brown
Written by: Bobbi
It’s officially holiday party season and there’s no better time to refresh your beauty look. I recently joined TODAY to share my tips, tricks, and must-have products for heading from the office to a party, adding some sparkle to your look, and showing off a red lip. Here’s to looking and feeling your best this season.
Payal’s Pre-Party Routine
It’s never been easier to take your look from day to night. On Payal, I started by adding Eye Cream before touching up the undereye area with a Face Pencil—an essential after a long day at work. You can also use a Face Pencil to cover any spots and hide redness around the mouth and nose. (Payal wears The Face Pencil in Shades 14 and 16.)
To give her a healthy, party-ready glow, I added Miracle Balm in Tawny to cheeks, followed by Miracle Balm in Magic Hour for a hint of shimmer. On eyes, I used The Best Eyeshadow in Cream to brighten, followed by The Best Pencil in Black and a few coats of The Mascara for definition. On her brows, I used The Brow Pencil in Dark Brunette.
Don’t be afraid of shimmer. The key is to focus it on just a few areas on the face versus using it all over. For MC, that means the lips and eyes.
On her eyes, I added shimmer by layering Just A Sec in Linen and Just A Sec in Pewter before adding a bit of Sparkle Wash in So Pretty on top. I used The Best Pencil in Black to line the eyes, followed by a few coats of The Mascara.
I gave her cheeks a natural flush using The Best Blush in P.O.P. (coming soon) and finished with Cool Gloss in Pink Gold Shimmer to add sparkle and shine to lips.
Jeanne’s Great Red Lip
Jeanne is one of those people who looks great with a red lip. Whenever you’re doing a bold lip, you want to keep the rest of the look subtle. On her eyes, I kept it simple with a little bit of Just A Sec to brighten and The Best Pencil in Black and The Mascara for clean definition. The look is complete with a few swipes of Cool Gloss in Great Red.
