Whether you’re aiming for that Kardashian glam look or looking for a more subtle, Gigi Hadid-inspired natural look, your make-up is just as important as your hair and dress. The things you should know before getting your make-up done for the holidays may seem obvious, but they’re definitely still important. Whether it’s good skin care or using the right colors of the season, a lot of thought goes into what your look will be and how you’ll achieve it. Going shopping for cosmetics for a holiday look can be stressful with all the thousands of choices, plus how often are you going to use those products again. It can be very expensive buying make-up for a couple of holiday events, getting your make-up done at a professional beauty boutique is not only educational, but cost effective. While some women do their own make-up for their events, many choose to have their make-up done professionally. They do so because they know the artist will know the latest trends in fashion and that alone can save you hundreds of dollars in make-up mistakes. The professional will also be knowledgeable in colors that are in and what colors are out. You will have more confidence attending that special event while trending the latest style with that new movement in color shift. Some ladies don’t realize they can’t wear a coral lipstick with a red dress, just as you wouldn’t wear a pink lipstick with burgundy dress. A professional will keep you true to yourself and select colors that are perfect for you and the dress you’re wearing. Whether it’s the scrubs and masque’s you’ll be using the week before an event, or what types of looks you want the make-up artist to do, being informed is the best thing you can do. So what A L I V E E A S T B A Y 38 n o v e m b e r 2 0 1 6 are the things you should know before getting your make-up done for the holidays? 1. Book Ahead Of Time: Just like you, others in the area will be booking for their make-up sessions. You’ll want to plan ahead and book in advance. 2. Have A Look In Mind: Whether you want a dark smoky eye or a more neutral look, knowing what you want before your appointment is a great idea. Communication is key when it comes to having your make-up done. 3. Talk About Foundation: Between the professional photos being taken or selfies, the likelihood of flash being involved is high. Flash can easily create a flashback in pictures that can completely wash you out. Make sure the make-up artist does not use a translucent powder; it’s better to use a powder that is the same color as your skin so you will look good no matter the camera lighting. 4. Prep Your Skin: Be sure to keep your pre-event skin care in mind before you get your holiday make-up done. The week before the event start using a good masque, like an organic scrub, perhaps a deep exfoliation masque or a hydrating treatment. While make-up artists are incredibly talented, having a great base will make your face look even more flawless and smooth. 5.
