Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean your makeup look can’t be celebrity-inspired! Check out these expert tips so you can shine like a star in 2014!
We love the makeup looks we saw on Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift in late December. We chatted with Amanda Gabbard, beauty and makeup specialist at the Guerlain Spa at the Waldorf Astoria in New York for her tips on how you can look just like a celebrity!
New Year’s 2014 — Makeup Tips To Look Like A Celebrity
Amanda told HollywoodLife.com:
“Our outfits and accessories get a bit more bedazzled [during the holidays] — so why shouldn’t our makeup? Properly placed champagne/nude colored shimmer/sparkle is an easy way to turn up the holiday shine. Shimmery powder can be lightly applied over any shadow color and tapped onto the inner eye corner to jazz up eye makeup. Also, dusting a shimmer on the temple, upper cheekbone, down the middle of the nose, as well as sprinkled all over the shoulders and décolleté is incredibly festive!”
I personally love a sparkly smokey eye all year round!
Although the holiday party rush may have passed for now, you can still easily transition a day-to-night look for birthday parties and beyond:
“No need to bring 12 more products in your purse to switch from your day look to an evening on the town. All you need is the same eyeliner you used in the morning, a small duo eye shadow, face powder and lipstick or gloss,” Amanda says.
The Biggest Holiday Makeup Trends
Just as we saw on Rihanna and Miley, the old Hollywood look is still totally trendy, especially a bold lip look!
“This year’s New Year’s trends are without a doubt going back to the old Hollywood look! For a simple yet glamorous style, sweep sheer-colored eye shadow over the entire lid, extend eyebrows with a matte brow pencil, and finish off with a black velvety-liquid eyeliner and thick black mascara. This year, adding a few individual false lashes at the ends of the lash line is a popular trend, and certainly perfects the look! Last but not least, what would a Hollywood siren be without her trademark red lip? Tap concealer all over the lips, outline with a matching liner, and then apply the lipstick.”
Are you planning on switching up your makeup look in 2014, HollywoodLifers?
