Holiday Collection: Dolce & Gabbana

How To: I brushed the shimmery white shadow (from the quad) on my entire eye – from lash line to brow bone. I mixed the 2 bottom colors – a neutral beige and brown – and added to just the lid on my eye. I used the darkest neutral, a slate-black, in the crease to add depth and as a liner on the upper lash line to give definition. I left the bottom lash line clean. For cheeks, I brushed the peach blush onto the apples to create a healthy, subtle glow (this look is really all about dark, deep eyes and bold, red lips). I finished with Ruby, a phenom red lippy in the perfect shade of crimson. You can never go wrong with a red lip… Loved the glamness of this entire look!

Did You Know: The collection houses 5 shades of red lippies: Iconic, Devil, Ruby, Ultra and Scarlett. Whatever your preference – from orange-red to berry-red – rest assured, there is a red for you. As I always say, red is a female’s rite of passage. Pucker up!
