Celebrity makeup artist, Tina Turnbow, dishes on holiday makeup exclusive for Beauty Banter….

Drumming and The Bump, nope not a disco musical. part of the mating dance of Turkeys. T- day is right around the corner. yeees the holidays!
will you be missing an ex, lonely, broke from buying too many gifts, hungover and bloated or MATING??!!
in the wild it’s the male who sports all the color to attract the female–he even struts and shuffles. spreads his tail feathers…
with us humans its usually the woman who struts in her high heels and spreads her eyelash feathers.
what type of lad would you like to attract??
here are some tips to add to your makeup artillery. happy hunting

are you a CONSERVATIVE barely there makeup wearer? do you find the creative type ARTIST or PHOTOGRAPHER sexy?
stop being unimaginative with your makeup. pick up a brush and fill in your brows to frame your soulful eyes. then consider color…the way
an artist does. a smokey teal/navy eye, orange lip or cranberry cheeks. play with combinations bright lips one date and smoldering hunter green eyes the next.
remember they are visually driven… as most men are.

are you REGIMENTED in your routine, keep a perfectly lined upper lid and brushed out flat ironed hair, waxed brows, pale pink nails?? but lord those ROCKIN ROLLERS
PUNKS and INDIE musicians catch your prestinely madeup eye—loooosen up!!! put down the brushes and irons. don’t wash your hair, put some sort of salt or dirt spray in it.
now line your eyes inner rims too, with kohl black and use your finger tips to smudge and smear, extra black on the outer corner, wing it out a bit. for a punky effect, try deep wine matte lips, metallic navy or black nails. he’ll want you to use those fingers to grab his leather jacket in the mosh pit.

are you too TIMID to show off your bombshell side?? but you swoon at the sight of a MANLY MAN or JOCK…sex it up player!! you’ll score if you spray some dry shampoo into your hair to fluff, whip it up and down, just short of Texas big hair. moisturize your face and body till it shimmers. gloss up those pouty lips, coat your feathery lashes with lots of mascara, add a flush to your cheeks as if you just rolled out of bed. don’t forget a yummy fragrance to lure your macho prey.

are you a CARELESS kinda girl, can’t be bothered, or your confidence waning these days? but when you see a man in a spiffy suit, PROFESSIONAL put together in a stylish way. how you want to pull those suspenders down & mess that slicked back hair…not until you wash your hair and slick it back into a sleek chignon and slick on the most classy, confidence boosting color, RED lipstick…magical!

have a magical holiday season and lots of delicious turkey… wink wink.
