Since November, in Russia and in Europe since October begins selling Christmas collections from the world of cosmetic brands. So now - it's time to look at the holiday-collections to pre-New Year shopping was a success, and you invented Christmas image struck and delighted everyone with whom you will meet the Christmas and New Year holidays.
Once saturated, dark and even black colors of autumn make-up palette of total collections of Christmas looks quite easy and transparent. Traditionally, winter colors - cold and shining, but there are new collections and exceptions. And the warm shades of autumn leaves will be a pleasant discovery for brunettes with dark skin - finally, and thought about them. But first things first.
Generally, if you never buy special products from the Christmas collection makeup, start to do it, try it. Firstly, it is a great opportunity to become the owner of an exclusive, after all holiday-collection produced in limited edition. Secondly, and this is also a strong argument, you and a gift for the holidays themselves do, and look in the New Year (and other subsequent winter) days will be important. But only one small detail that I think, still not quite scare you, this is what Christmas products generally are more expensive than other seasonal collections.
Well, now, actually, to the trends and collections.
Holiday-trend 1. lilac, violet, light and transparent shadows
Purple, as you remember, reigns in the fall, not only in make-up but also in clothing. He remains for Christmas images, but becomes more transparent, and often shiny or pearly.
A classic way in violet tones can be considered the one that offers Christmas collection from Clinique. Collection name - Black Tie Violet Holiday 2009 and included in the collection of the purple shadow and pencil with creamy texture embody the classic version of the number one New Year's trend.
Another purple masterpiece - a way presented the Christmas collection by Dior - New Look Noёl 2009. And those expressive eyes make new palette of shadows, as well as special beauty liquid eyeliner Style Liner new shade Sparkling Purple - Purple Glitter.
A special lightness and weightlessness give makeup color that complements trendy purple: silver, gray, golden-brown, gray, pink, etc.
Lovely shades of purple and additional to them can be found in almost every brand this winter, but very possible to identify some.
Palette Holiday 2009 collection by Prescriptives liked for the comprehensive accompanying tone.
Brand MAC remembered as a charming purple eye makeup, for what it is worth mentioning separately crisp mineral shadows of Christmas Collection Magic, Mirth, Mischief.
And another note mosaic shadows from the collection of Illamasqua Dystopia Makeup Collection - Holiday 2009, although the makeup brand that offered to do with them, are interested in only a very courageous persons.
Holiday-trend 2. Smoky eyes
It is too early to abandon autumn smoky eye trend. And rightly so, because we have just learned how to do it. For those who are still learning, I recommend buying the special mosaic shades designed specifically for this make-up. Professionals say that it will take at least three tones for classic smoky eyes.
Perfect master class - a special autumn box of Benefit under the telling title Smokin 'Eyes, in which there are only three colors of shadows, but even a pencil, eyeliner, wax to shape the eyebrows, camouflage concealer to the skin around the eyes, a brush with two different tips (eyeshadow and eyebrows), correction of eyebrow tweezers, and most important - step by step guide: how to make a professional makeup smokey eyes.
But New Year's smoky eyes, you see, have something different from the classic. The way it is. The festive collections offered glowing colors, and sometimes even deliberately unnatural. As in the New Year's collection of English brand Rimmel «Dark Signature look of Rimmel London». These smoky eyes - a true example of a festive make-up!
Holiday-trend 3. natural pink lip
If you choose to holiday meykapa eyes intense and very imaginative, the lips should on the one hand to support the move, and on the other - not "take on" too much. Therefore, in this case, it is offered a rich but light palette of pink shades.
Luxury pink shades offered in the Christmas Collection Dior, Clinique, Rimmel, Chanel.
There is Chanel - Lipstick Aqua Lumière - four new natural shade of Grenada, Tasmania, Galapagos, Maldives, plus lip gloss soft coral-pink hue. Dior is almost identical to that choice, Rouge Dior lipstick introducing two new pink shades: Illustrious Pink - true pink, Aristocratic Mauve - pink with a purple tinge. As decoration lip in a Christmas collection Dior - Cream Lip Gloss Rouge Dior Creme de Gloss new sparkling mauve shade Violet Shine.
Truly pink shades look at the Clinique (this lipstick, gloss and liner lip) and Givenchy (here offered an amazing pink gloss in combination with the same pink nail polish).
And even among the pink-lilac-purple range is worth noting New Year collection The Body Shop Holiday 2009 she fits into the already listed home trends.
Holiday-trend 4. Gold and "warm" jewels
Yes, some brands have presented a warm, almost autumn range for its New Year images. But they look quite easily and elegantly. After warm colors - it certainly association with natural gemstones and gold.
The most "precious" palette stood out Dolche & Gabbana, Chanel and YSL. And the packaging and contents of the shine, sparkle and attract the eye. And the colors - bright, natural, like a scattering of jewels: emerald, amethyst, garnet. Plus, the "gold" of tonal resources, blush and some shades of shadows.
One of the most luxurious warm, deep and "gold" hues presented brand Bobbi Brown. His palette fascinate, workshops attract smoky eyes, and the most fortunate brunettes with dark eyes, because for them - it's a great holiday decision.
But Christmas Collection Estee Lauder and Clarins, though full of warm colors, but should be fine and blondes. The main thing - not "miscalculate" the color of the tone means or powder, they generally need to be chilly. But the most "suffer" with the selection is not necessary, because these collections have in their arsenal a suitable powder, creams and concealers.
And two more "warm" Christmas mosaic of collections that will please you - is already familiar with the brand Prescriptives charming comprehensive travel bag golden hues, and a set of tones from Givenchy, allowing help to "sculpt" any of the selected images.
New Year - a time when we give gifts. Global brands makeup tried to give us a great holiday collection. Now we have to give them to themselves. I wish you a successful shopping!
