Christmas is literally less than a week away and holiday parties are coming and going. In my search for the perfect festive look I stumbled across a great article on Harper’s Bazaar for the Top Ten Holiday Makeup Ideas. Prepared by Nicole Catanese, I must say that this post is top notch and great to look at right before the weekend to get some makeup ideas for all your parties you’ll be at!
When I discovered this list it inspired me to try some new looks, glitter, red lips and even maybe turquoise liner! These looks aren’t just perfect for the holidays they are great for New Years, birthdays and any types of celebrations!
Here’s a recap of the top ten ideas and to get the full article from HarpersBazaar.com click HERE! Let’s check them out:
1. Glitterati: Glitter and blow outs
But when two of my close friends Jessica and Diane the dynamic duo of Lex.Dorethy asked me to be a part of their fun shoot I couldn’t oblige. With a 90’s girly grunge theme enhanced with dark makeup, plaid, leather jackets and a fun set who couldn’t have a grand time?!
We ventured over to the Old LA abandoned Zoo near Griffith Park and had a blast with wardrobe and laughing at ourselves as we tried to model. The serious grunge faces made us giggle non-stop, we had to change in an old abandoned shack and it burning up as we tried not to sweat off our makeup.
We had three wardrobe changes starting off with a girly look with a floral print dress and plaid shirt and flower crowns hand made by Lex.Dorethy themselves. Next look added distressed shorts, band and comic tee with booties. The last look would be the image above, a long soft colored maxi skirt and a black cut out cropped top.
It was so refreshing to just spend a creative day with friends. Jessica has been working on a great video that I will post soon to show you all! It’s still strange to see me in pictures and a constantly laugh at them but I remember the good time it was taking them and I can’t wait to brainstorm another one.
Below are just snapshots from the day.
“There’s no right or wrong way to do something, but you’ve got to actually do it. You have to participate and stay open to new experiences. You can’t just receive information from somebody else- you have to live life for yourself.”
And it couldn’t be any more true. As life goes on there are going to be new challenges, new obstacles and new opportunities. And this month brings MJ’s new makeup line exclusively at Sephora. Stating that “makeup is the final accessory to getting all dolled up Marc Jacobs talks to Teen Vogue in the Beauty Marc article available in the Fall Fashion Issue out now.
Already am experienced and savvy fashion designer Jacobs takes to new heights as he embarks on his first ever beauty product line. Makeup Man shares in Teen Vogue that “beauty is a part of the art and ritual of getting dressed to go out into the world.”
He also dishes on his top product picks that include, “the concealer, which I’ve often used after many late nights of working — or a couple nights out.” He also notes the palladium-tip applicator and the lip balm which are guy-tested and girl-approved!
Already a hit with his bags, clothes and rich perfumes and scents, the new beauty line comes complete with concealers, blush, brushes, nail polish and must have eyeshadow and lip sticks. All priced at $18 and up there is something for every cosmetics lover. Check the collection out online or at the nearest Sephora.

And remember, “Trust your instincts, believe in yourself, and find a group that supports you. It’s hard to overcome fear, but you’ve got to.” – Marc Jacobs
