Makeup Tutorial: Get Our Stage Right Look

This month’s lookbook is titled Stage Right, featuring holiday styles that will turn heads from dusk till dawn.  With a wardrobe full of sequins, sparkle, and embellishment, we kept the makeup for this shoot simple but strong so as not to outshine the dazzling outfits. Read on for a list of products used to achieve this perfect look for the holiday season!

1. Start by moisturizing the skin – we used Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè.

2. Next we used Nars Tinted Moisturizer to even out the skin and get a nice radiant shimmer. We also used it on the lips – it gives them a really natural, shimmery color.

3. On the eyes we used Kevyn Aucoin Eye Definer in “Twinkle,” a beautiful, shimmery brownish-copper color. Apply to the top of the lid and in the corners of the eye.

4. Next we used Nars St. Barts on the cheekbones to add a bit more color.

5. Use an eyebrow brush to fill in the brows for a more striking look.

6. Finish with a layer of black mascara.

  1. I always love these posts about the make up tutorials. I’d have to say these and the FP store playlists are my absolute favorite posts of all! I’d love to see more videos of these make up tutorials though so that I can see exactly how to try these awesome looks on myself! Thank you!!! :))

  2. This is a great tutorial, should be helpful to those ladies that struggle with applying the right combination of makeup. It’s a very natural and understated effect, very subtle.
