woman's face; holiday makeup trends; UW Health Transformations Jeune Skin Care; Madison, WisconsinThis holiday season, you will notice the colors of 2011 similar to years past - with a touch of warmer looks. This season focuses on bold color and dramatic looks that will make you stand out.
Eye shadows seem to be the focus this season with neutral browns and warm, earthy tones with a hint of orange. Don't worry if "bold" isn't your style - a nude eye can be quite alluring and is certainly a trend this year, as well.

How can you create a sultry eye without all the makeup? 

    1. Begin with light brown or shimmery nude at the corner of the eye, swept over the lid.
    1. Then line the eye with brown or black/brown eyeliner, sweeping it up at the corners. Using a slight upward stroke of the liner makes the eyes open and lashes appear longer.
  1. For this softer look, add a dab of gloss in a warm hue to the lips to balance the soft eye (such as Jane Iredale's new Chocoholicks gloss in "Very Berry" or "Chili Pepper").

Want to get away with more drama? 

    1. Share This StoryUse a richer, darker color, such as Jane Iredale's "Dark Suede" shadow, either swept up from the outer lash line to the crease, or brushed through the crease of the eyes.

  1. It is important to keep the lips as simple as possible, though. Stick with neutrals. A soft pink or glossy nude on the lips will soften the dark on the eye lids.

A perfect blend of classic colors in one little palette is found in Jane Iredale's "Daytime Eye" shadow kit ($48.00 at Jeune Skin Care). It has 5 rich shades of neutral browns and even charcoal to suit anyone to achieve a day or evening look.


Don't forget to add the finishing touch of lip color to complete your look. Jane Iredale's new Chocoholicks has 4 lip colors in an adorable palette with a package that resembles a candy bar. Perfect for yourself or as a gift! ($35.00 at Jeune Skin Care).


Happy holidays! You will look gorgeous!
