Holiday Glam with L'Oreal Paris

It’s down to the wire now, I mean really, Christmas is only EIGHT days away!  I suspect many of you still have shopping to fit in, not to mention wrapping all of those gifts!  In the midst of all the fun chaos, how is a mom to get herself ready for the big day?  Simple, shop L’Oreal Paris cosmetics at any mass retailer and not only will you get a bargain but you’ll get fabulous makeup for a dramatic holiday look!

Here’s what you need to look like the super put-together mom that we all know you are:

Dramatic, full lashesTelescopic Explosion Mascara, a new mascara with a breakthrough spherical brush offering 360-degree coverage from any (and EVERY) angle. This innovative mascara is designed to reach even the smallest lashes to separate every little lash from root to tip for explosive definition.

Expert Tip:
“Layer multiple coats and take advantage of how this brush gets every little lash—especially the corners!”
Colour Riche Anti-Aging Serum Lipcolour in Real Red
Sophisticated Red Lips—Nothing says instant glamour for the holidays like red lips. Try Colour Riche Anti-Aging Serum Lipcolour in Real Red.  Seriously one of my favorite reds and it feels like lip balm going on!

Expert Tip:
“Select a shade that compliments your skin tone based on the undertone of the lipstick itself. Those with fair skin should try reds that have a blue undertone; olive or dark skin should opt for orange undertones.”

Matte Eye Shadow—Be bold and accessorize any party dress with statement makeup. Try HIP Matte Shadow Duos in any of the five shades.  My personal favorites are Striking and Animated.

Expert Tip:
“Use shadow along the lash line to give more definition and to blend eyeliner for a softer, smokey effect.”
L'Oreal Paris HiP Color Chrome Eyeliner in Silver Lightening
Striking eyes—Create evening eyes in just one step by applying dramatic eyeliner. Opt for HIP Chrome Eyeliner in Gold, Silver or Purple.

Expert Tip:
“For eyes that really pop, try using the silver or gold liner in the inner corners of the eye.” –Collier Strong
