Several months ago, Avon's global creative color director and longtime celebrity makeup artist, Jillian Dempsey, gave us some pretty amazing warm-weather makeup tips. And now that a new — and much colder — season is here, she has several more pieces of advice to share, specifically, a few ideas for New Year's Eve. So to see her tips for a complete (and easy) makeup look that has the perfect amount of glitz and glam, just keep reading.
- A punchy lip: "I'm really into bright, punchier lips," explains Jillian. She recommends Avon's Ultra Color Rich Lipstick in Poppy Love ($7). "It's one of those colors where it's like you walk in and it's like you're wearing high heels on your face. It's a great way to dress it up."
- Pair that with lots of lashes: "I'm a sucker for fake lashes," says Jillian. Tip: for a glue-free alternative, Jillian recommends lining the eyes with a kohl eyeliner in black or charcoal, then using a lash booster followed by a vibrating mascara to build big, dramatic lashes.
- And to finish: "Stay soft with the eye shadow and cheek color, and really blow it out with the eyes and lips," says Jillian. Opt for a matte blush with a neutral tone for a bit of definition, and as for the eye shadow, try a soft taupe or gold. "I love shiny and shimmer, so if you wanted to have a little neutral that had a little shimmy to it, that would be fun," she adds.
Stay tuned for more from Jillian in the New Year, including her tips on the five-minute face, her favorite makeup tip, and some awesome ideas on choosing the most flattering palettes, no matter the complexion.
