Hot Holiday Makeup


From sexy cat eyes to bold lip tattoos (that's right: lip tattoos!), beauty expert Sandy Gold has all the makeup tips and tricks you'll need to get the season's hottest holiday looks!

Sexy Cat Eyes

Cat eyes are a subtle way to turn up the heat (and the sex appeal) this holiday. Here's how to get a purr-fect eye, everytime. Me-ow!

  1. Line upper lid along lash line with white liner. To create wing, extend bottom lash line upward as far or as little as you like. This allows you to trial a shape before committing to it with darker eyeliner.
  2. Once you're happy with the shape of your wing, go over it with black eyeliner. Use a business card as a stencil to ensure a crisp line.


Natural Glam

The keys to looking naturally glamourous are warm, gold eyeshadow and bright, bold lips! Here's how to make sure your lipstick stays put for hours:

  1. Exfoliate your lips.
  2. Use a finger to pat on lipstick to create a stain. This way, when the top layer of lipstick fades, this bottom layer will stay with you!
  3. Use a lip brush to apply the top layer of lipstick and carefully shape your lip.
  4. Dip a cotton swab in translucent powder and dab it on lips to set lipstick and prevent smudging.

Lips That Rock!

The holidays are a great time to have some fun with your look, and what better way to shake things up than Violent Lips temporary tattoos?

  1. Cut tattoo to fit your lips. Use lines on the back as guides.
  2. Make sure your lips are clean, dry and exfoliated.
  3. Peel off clear film on patterned side of tattoo and place decal on your lips.
  4. Soak a cotton ball with water and press decal onto your lips.
  5. Once paper is nice and wet, it will peel right off to reveal your lips' new look!
