Benefit Holiday Makeup Tips & Tricks

To help you get in the spirit of the holidays, Makeup Trend Artists Maggie (left) and Annie (right) Ford Danielson have picked a few holiday looks from the Be Dazzling this Holiday with Benefit contest and come up with the perfect makeup tips and tricks for each look. Maggie and Annie are also the daughters of Benefit co-founder Jean Ford.

Look #1

Annie: I love the Dallas and the BADgal Plum! I would rock a soft blue smoky eye to play up the blue and gold theme in this look, using Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in Skinny Jeans, a pretty pewter, and Velvet Eyeshadow in Like What You Sea?, a misty blue.

Maggie: For a little lip love, add a pop of color with Lip Gloss in Friends in High Places, a sparkling raspberry shade.

Look #2

Maggie: This girl has GREAT taste, she is so up to date with her fashion. I would demand that this diva wears a smokin’ eye, and what better to suggest than our Smokin’ Eye kit, which has everything you need for the sexy, smoky look.

Annie: In order to get those glamorous false-looking lashes without all the fuss, add a few sweeps of BADgal Lash mascara. End with a pop of warm coral color to the cheeks with CORALista.

Look #3

Annie: This girly girl will be sure to dazzle this holiday season. I would see her wearing Posietint poppy-pink tinted lip and cheek stain on her lips for that perfectly flushed look.

Maggie: A shimmery brown eye would look great with this look. I would recommend Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in Busy Signal, a rich brown, with a little bit of neutral Velvet Eyeshadow in Fawn Over Me in the crease. Finish off with our new BADGal Brown mascara for soft, full-looking lashes.
