The Holidays are in full swing and what better time to share a few tips and keep your make-up and hair looking fresh and fabulous.
To keep you lips from smudging Beth says to apply just a little lip color or a lip stain instead of a creamy lipstick and blot the excess with a tissue. To prevent lipstick on teeth, after applying place your index finger in your mouth and close your lips over it. Then gently pull out. Finish with a touch of gloss for extra shine.
For eye-makeup that stays put, Beth says to dust a bit of translucent powder over the eye first before applying color. This will absorb the oils and ensure longer lasting color. For eyeliner with staying power try using a Gel eyeliner instead of a pencil. It’s water resistant and when set with a powder shadow will not budge for hours and hours.

For hair that won’t behave and flyaways that continue to drive you mad throughout the night, Beth suggests using a hand lotion to smooth strands. Rub a tiny amount of lotion between palms and then lightly run hands over your style. If your hair is fine apply only a tiny, tiny amount.

For holiday eyes that sizzle, Beth suggests using an eyeliner stencil to get sultry smoky eyes and purrfect cat eyes. She likes the Get in Line Stencil Kit which comes with everything you need to create these looks.
