Holiday Makeup Q&A with Jill Powell
What are the makeup trends for the upcoming holiday season?
Holiday season is a great time to add a little sparkle to your makeup and bring out deeper lip colors. I love doing small fun additions to everyday makeup like pressing a glitter on top my my bottom liner, or using a glitter liner on top of my top liner.
What is the best lip color for the holidays?
For holidays I love deeper berry tones (Feeling the Vibe’s suggestion: Burt’s Bees Brimming Berry Lipstick). Find the one that compliments your skin tone the best by matching warmer undertones with warmer skin tones and cooler undertones with cooler skin tones.
What is your secret for the perfect smoky eye?
My trick for a perfect Smokey Eye is to first apply black liner (Feeling the Vibe’s suggestion: Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner) to the lid and bottom lash line/waterline, then sweep black shadow on top of the liner and blend the edges. To finish it off and create a natural gradation (Feeling the Vibe’s suggestion: COVERGIRL LiquilineBlast Eyeliner Pencil Brown Blaze) of color, I always blend a brown shadow into the crease and and brown liner under the eyes.
Fun Fact – Jill even travels with Demi out of the country (Here they are in the UK!)
Highlighting can really add so much to your makeup. What areas of your face do you recommend sweeping the highlighter?
Highlighter should be placed on the high planes of your Face. I love applying it to the tops of my cheekbones, Cupid’s bow of the lips and just a tiny bit down the center of the nose. (Feeling the Vibe’s suggestion: BECCA Highlighter)
