Beauty Mark It! A Festive Holiday Face

Holiday party season is upon us, which makes me happy because I can finally bust out some of the bolder makeup looks without people thinking I'm the mayor of Crazytown. It's a great time to wear metallic shadow, to add some sparkle to your hair, or to bust out a smoky eye or bright lip.

So for this week's Beauty Mark It challenge, I'm asking you to share your favorite face for a holiday party. I'll start you off with a photo of the lipstick that's currently my favorite, MAC Queen's Sin. (If you like it and find it in a store, pick it up—it's sold out online!) I'll pair it with a softly shimmery shadow and a thin line of liquid liner. But what about you? Assemble your favorite look by tagging your choices with the phrase "2007 holiday face." I'll feature the readers' favorites on BellaSugar next Tuesday, December 11.

To learn about Beauty Mark It challenges and to see how to add your picks, check out this how-to. To see some of my favorite online beauty stores,

I prefer to go with a more bold eye and a lighter lip for the holidays. I like ,y eye to have that "pop" and my lips look va va voom. With YSL you can touch up just where you need to on your face, not every girl needs all over coverage. A little pink blusher just to give your face that hint of color you need to wow 'em. When starting with the eye you always need a primer to keep everything in place for hours on end. You have to look great from start to finish and primer is the way to go with that. Set, lock and load the shadow!! People forget way too much about the brow. Not everyone needs to fill them in but at least make sure they're look neat and clean with a little grooming gel. And of course the lip, keep it soft and looking lush with some EA lip products top with MAC for that little bit of kick!!

I really think there is a red lipstick for everyone! It just takes some time to find the right one. Check out my guide for some ideas. And for red lipsticks, start by going to MAC, and work with a makeup artist at the store. It's sometimes a bit of trial and error, but you can definitely find the right one for you. From there, it's just a matter of having the confidence to wear it.

I agree that is a pretty color, but at first glance I thought this was a picture of L'Oreal Paris Target RED for Target. I saw that yesterday while browsing the aisles and was shocked of the amount of blue-red pigment there is in that. But I agree Antiqutease woudl be my fave of the bunch.

Awww. I can't make that happen. Reds just are not good for me.

I LOVE the color of that lipstick. However I feel like I can't pull off reds at all. I'm naturally pretty pale with pinkish tones in my skin and it just does not seem to work!

Oops! Sorry about that. Too much quick coding on my end. :) The tag is 2007 HOLIDAY FACE.
