Holiday Beauty for All Ages

MAC Senior Make-up Artist Caitlin Callahan says the holidays are a time to bring out that dramatic version of yourself and have some fun with makeup.

She highlights her three favourite trends:

THE KITCHEN SINK!

Don't be afraid to go bold - do up all of the features on your face for a very Studio 54, but still sophisticated look.

    Tips:
  • for a symmetrical red lip start in the centre of the mouth and blend down.
  • for additional drama add a touch of gloss to the center of the lip - it will blend and move naturally itself.

THE SOFTER SIDE OF HOLIDAY

A twist on a classic: a smokey eye with shading and highlight on the face. But not your 80s contouring!

    Tips:
  • The modern smokey eye doesn't need three or four different eyeshadows. Sometimes a creamy pencil is enough!
  • Modern contouring uses a creamy highlight along the cheekbone which makes for prettier and softer photos.
  • Cream products blend better when they are INSIDE the brush, not sitting on top. And always use soft brushes - the softer the brush, the softer makeup will look on your face.
  • Start shading under the cheekbone by the ear and blend off the face to avoid any lines on the face.

3. TINSEL TOWN

Everyone can wear a little bit of sparkle - no matter what your age!

    Tips:
  • Primer is a great way to maintain the "bounce" on the skin - it's also great for on the go touch-ups too.
  • Use your finger to touch the glitter onto your lid - tape makes for easy cleanup if there's any wayward glitter.

Final Tip:

Take your time! And take a photo with a smart phone or nice camera to see how you look - cameras can see more than our eyes. That will prevent any makeup mishaps we have seen on the red carpet!
