Excitement is in the air as we are only weeks away from welcoming a brand new decade. It's the return of the 20s: an era that evokes classic glitz and glamour, the promise of champagne and stars. The early 1920s was the beginning of the rise of the cosmetics industry and when lipsticks, rouges, and mascaras really came into their own and flourished in the newly established market.
Oh, have times changed! So now, it's your turn to define this brand new 20s era.
Welcome your 2020 experience with unforgettable and revolutionary new colors, techniques, and other products available now and make a statement this new year. What better time is there to play around with your usual makeup looks than during the holiday parties and countdown bashes you're attending this season?
Here are three incredible looks that will have you be the center of attention as soon as you enter the room:
GOLD-HATTED, HIGH-BOUNCING GLAMOUR
Walk into any of your parties with this incredibly creative look and you're guaranteed to stop and steal the show!
When you're working with playful looks, it's important to keep things balanced so as not to detract from other parts of your look. If you're doing a bold eye look, like this one, keep the rest of your makeup neutral and flawless to make it cohesive.
Start off with a smooth base with Lingerie Soufflé Skin Perfecting Primer. This whipped and refreshing formula is gentle on the skin and gets your makeup looking fresh and flawless all day long.
Before your foundation, apply to apply your One Step Correct to neutralize your complexion, readying the base and making you look more radiant.
Next, since you'll be partying 2019 away in this look, you'll want a comfortable, naturally perfect-looking finish to your skin that still looks fresh as the night goes on and won't just melt off. Use your Lingerie Soufflé Skin Perfecting Color to get this look and blend in the product to your skin with your favorite brush or sponge, such as the #24 Double Sided Illuminating Powder Brush.
To finish your base, add a light wash of Convertible Color - Lips and Cheeks to your lips and cheeks for a monochromatic and delicate pop of color that works well with your bold eye look.
For the eyes, there are no strict rules. Use your application tools with your colorful eyeshadows to really let your creative side out.
The #28 Smudge and Line Brush is excellent for getting your desired shape just right. The #15 Double Sided Brush packs on color excellently but when you're working with liquid eyeshadows, it's best to take a tip from the art masters and apply the colors to the back of your hand first and mix your colors until you get the one you want.
With this kind of look, you can choose to test out how the colors are going to blend on the back of your hand before you apply them. Once you've committed to a color scheme, have fun with it and don't be afraid to layer. The Suede Shade™ Liquid Eye Shadow makes an excellent base with its high-impact, mattified color payoff while topping it with a Shade Mystère Liquid Eyeshadow can give off a mesmerizing finish that shimmers and captures the light.
like champagne and stars
The thing about a classic look is that it will never, ever go out of style.
With a blend of the millennial favorites—such as soft champagne-like shimmers and rose gold touches—and the tried-and-tested, classic makeup structure of soft cat eyes eyeliner flicks and subtle smokey eyes, you're sure to get an effortlessly winning makeup look.
With classic glamour, there's so much more than meets the eye. Create this look perfectly every time with a true, tried-and-tested process.
First, apply your One Step Prime to prime your face. This primer acts as a nourishing barrier for your skin and creates a flawless canvas so your makeup applies on just right and lasts all night long. Next, achieve your desired finish with your shade of Stay All Day Foundation and Concealer as it is a buildable formula that gives you high definition full coverage.
Next, concentrate on your eye area. A Knowing Glance, a travel-friendly eye-centric trio, makes this easy to both do and keep with you in your clutch. Apply your eyeshadow first, then put on your desired eyeliner shape; swipe a few coats of the lengthening mascara. Amplify the look of your lashes with the Huge Extreme Lash Mascara. Don't forget your brows and lightly fill in any sparse area with the Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Color.
Complete the look with a few finishing touches to elevate this sophisticated look. Gently blend in a soft wash of Convertible Color - Lips and Cheeks in Gerbera to your cheeks for a quick pop of color. Add the award-winning Heaven's Hue Highlighter in Kitten to heighten your look from radiant to immaculately divine. Swipe on your favorite "your lips but better" liquid lipstick, Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Portofino, and set your whole makeup look with the In the Buff Powder Spray for a tried-and-tested glow up that gets you through your New Year's parties.
boldly complete incarnation
The 1920s are often cited as the beginning of the makeup revolution as this was the era where cosmetics became more readily available for the everyday Jane. Make a full circle tribute to this revolution as you herald in 2020 with a little celebratory boldness of your own and revel in the new colors and techniques that are widely available now.
For your base, keep it simple and flawless with the Hide & Chic Fluid Foundation. Apply the foundation with your Wonderbrush for Face and Body and make sure that the coverage extends down to your neck and décolletage to make it look seamless and naturally perfect. With the Shade Mystère Face Gloss, add a subtle, multidimensional glow to the high points of your face such as your cheeks, cupid's bow, and the tip of your nose to heighten the look.
Apply it into your desired shape and blend it out in the way you want with your #30 Double Ended Shadow Brush. Don't be afraid to go above the eye area and even extend it from the brow onwards to make it bolder and more editorial-looking. Layer on other colors to compliment your main shadow such as with touches of silver with the Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Perlina or pops of rose with the Little White Lies Eyeshadow in Pink Wink Wink.
Finish the eye-look with a classic but defined lash line using the cult-favorite,Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner. Dab on your favorite shade of Stay All Day Liquid Lip Color (we favor the classic, universally flattering red that is the shade Fiery) and you're good to go.
Simple glamorous makeup looks are wonderful for your usual day-to-day. But for really special occasions, why not make like boats against the current and have as much fun as possible with these creative, eye-catching looks?
You only get to ring in the new 20s once. Make your experience one that you'll remember fondly for years and years to come.
