Lisa Eldridge

For her holiday look, Chanel beauty expert Lisa Eldridge applies golden bronze, chocolate brown and plum eyeshadows, blending together the three shades and adding a light beige shade to highlight. She then uses brown liquid eyeliner, and dark mascara with a sparkling metallic mascara topcoat to add some extra glamour. She finishes the look with a light blusher, and hot red lips and nails.

Alexa starts her holiday makeup with a BB cream base for a natural look, set with translucent powder, and then blusher on the cheek. She uses a gold cream eyeshadow to create shimmer, and then adds a darker brown in the crease of the eye. A white color pencil is used to highlight the inner eye, then liquid eyeliner wings, black kohl eyeliner pencil and black eyeliner add more defintion. False eyelashes and a matte pink lipstick round out the party-season look.

This day-to-night look is great for those office parties which start just after work ends.

For day, start with foundation, and a concealer to lighten and brighten, then mattify the face with a setting powder. For the eyes, start by outlining and defining your eyebrows, and add cream shadow to the lids, then liquid eyeliner on the outer half of the eye. Any additional cheekbone contouring is optional. A bold pink blush on the apples of the cheeks and cream highlighter add glow, while pink lip butter, and curled eyelashes finish the look.

Transform it for night by adding fake lashes and creating a smokey eye with matte black shadow. Silver eyeliner on lower lash line, a more intense lip color, and mascara on the lashes will all help transform you into the belle of the ball.
