Even though there is no snow on the ground (might be a good thing) there is no denying that the 2011 holiday season is inching closer. With all the holiday events that will undoubtedly fill up you calendar dates, you might not be able to buy a new cocktail dress for every event but at least you can switch up your make-up routine! Really, all it takes is some fresh colour, some shimmer and a nice berry lip to spiffy up that little black dress.

The hottest trends this holiday season are inspired by the glamour of the 1950′s movie stars. Bold lip colors coupled with a more simplified smokey eye in a grey/gunmetal or golden palettes. Give your black eyeshadows a break this season. Don’t be shy about shimmer, use a golden/peach toned highlighter along your brow bone (highlight those fantastic arches!) and cheekbones. Even a light dusting of shimmery powder along your collar bone will make your holiday beauty look very alluring.

If you need some extra tips, advice or just how to gain some make-up artist secrets make sure to book an appointment with one of our wonderfully, talented make-up artists and get your kit geared for this holiday season. You can even bring in your own eyeshadow palettes for an updated look created just for you!
