It all starts with the right dress. As one of my fashion icons, Victoria Beckham, advised in her book “That Extra Half an Inch,” plan to only highlight ONE of your best assets. If you’re going for a low-cut dress, make sure it’s not too short. Likewise, if you want to show off your legs, make sure your cleavage is somewhat modest.
‘Tis the season for sapphires and pearls—my two favorite gemstones! Sterling silver and gemstone jewelry can turn an ordinary outfit into an amazing and memorable fashion statement. My go-to store for all things jewelry is Shane Co. From their world-class designers, sterling silver and natural sapphires are fashion forward and available in any budget.
It’s officially time to bust out the shimmer eye shadow and red lipstick. Holiday fashion and makeup are all about being bright and cheery, so light shadows and bold lips are the perfect ways to
enhance your holiday look. You can still go for glamorous eyes with fake lashes and smokey shades, but I always add shimmer shadows/liner on and around my eyelids to brighten up my face. Urban Decay’s Naked I, II, and III palettes are quite literally perfect for the holidays (actually year-round in my opinion).
And honestly, I’m a fan of red lipstick year-round, whatever… it’s downright essential in December. MAC’s Ruby Woo is my all-time favorite matte shade, and their Cherry lip liner is equally as fabulous. If you’re looking for a great lacquer, try Rimmel London Show Off.
