4 Makeup Tips For Super Bowl Parties

Super Bowl is here in Phoenix this year.
I’ve been working non stop on Super Bowl events (and the Phoenix Open too – its also here this weekend), in fact until Monday I am eating, sleeping and breathing Super Bowl makeup.

A couple of years back I was at a spectacular Super Bowl party in Scottsdale, and was stunned that so many of the women there were so ridiculously overly made up. They almost looked like caricatures of themselves.
A full face of makeup looks silly at a Super Bowl party, so how do you do your makeup and feel pretty but not look overdone?

Here are my 4 Makeup Tips For Your Super Bowl Party

1. Ease up on the foundation. A thick cakey foundation, or a dried out crushed mineral foundation look equally out of place and totally overdone. Let your skin glow and look fresh with a BB cream instead.

2. Step back on the liner. Black eyeliner is too harsh for a Sunday afternoon. Use an expresso brown instead, smudging it into the lashline so that it enhances the lashes but doesn’t draw too much attention to itself.

3. Give yourself a rosy glow. It’s easy to look flat in the middle of winter. There’s no sunshine bouncing off your complexion and the world around you is grey, so light things up with a rosy glow to your cheeks. Bring the color forward a little to give yourself a slight flush.

4. Lighten up on the lip. Super Bowl parties are all about drinks and finger foods. If you are sporting a bold lip or a dark lip, it will end up all over your fingers and all over your glass. A strong lip also breaks down and looks tacky if you don’t keep it maintained.
Opt instead for  lighter or softer lip.
(If you really can’t go for a softer lip use a longwear formula but check it often!)

5 Tips To Wake Up Your Winter Makeup

If you are anything like me then you have a major dose of the mid January blahs.
The fun and excitement of the holiday season is now firmly ensconced in the rear view mirror, your waistline is resplendent with holiday carbs, and the face in the mirror is reflecting grey skies with makeup boredom and stressed out mid winter skin.

Need a little makeup pick-me-up?

Here are 5 tips to wakeup your mid-winter makeup

1) Make sure skin is well hydrated before you apply your foundation –  dry/sensitive/irritated winter skin doesn’t hold makeup well. If you are wind burned/extra irritated from cold weather + central heating try Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream or Rhonda Allison Grape Seed Oil to help smooth skin and provide a barrier.

2) use a silicone based foundation like Makeup Forever HD Foundation to help skin glow. Apply sparingly with a duo fiber brush to get a sheer smooth cover.

3) Use a cream blush to make complexion look alive and vibrant.

4) If you’re feeling washed out, use warm tones on the eyes. Bronzey/warm golds warm up a lifeless complexion. Silvers, greys and blues can leave you looking ashen and cold.

5) If you are looking pale make a statement with a strong lip color. Red is always exciting, this year I am wearing a punchy fuchsia to liven everything up.
