HOLIDAY ISSUE Beauty Joy

How To Add Sparks Of Joy To Your Makeup

Forget the glitters and shimmers of Holidays past, this year we’re taking a fresh approach to our makeup. From bold, joyful pops of color to chic, glossy skin, this is the kind of makeup that’s easy to master at-home, never fails to raise a smile and most definitely should not be saved just for special occasions…

Show-Stopping Red

Few things are more joyful than a bright lip. Find the right shade of red for you and you can’t go wrong. Our favourites? Shiseido Modern Matte Powder Lipstick in 514 Hyper Red, $28.50 in Hyper Red and in Walk Of No Shame. “To really pump up the richness of color, apply lip liner over the full lip before applying your chosen shade,” says makeup artist Zoe Taylor.

Thrill Of Teal

Step outside your comfort zone and play with teal hues. Whether you have blue, brown or green eyes, it makes the color pop. For long-lasting, punchy pigment and effortless application, we love Sisley-Paris Phyto-Eye Twist, $53.00 in Lagoon. “Prevent any creasing by setting your cream eyeshadow or pencil with a translucent powder,” advises Zoe.

Joyful Gloss

“Subtly glossy skin looks expensive and chic,” says Zoe. “It’s a look that works well for any skin type.” The trick to achieving this finish is to go heavy on hydrating skincare and light on your base. Cue .

Halfmoon Happiness

Inspired by the swinging sixties, halfmoon liner is a fun and easy way to incorporate colour into your makeup. “Leaving the liner unattached gives you a fresh, bright-eyed finish,” says Zoe, who recommends a mood-boosting green hue, such as Chantecaille Luster Glide Silk Infused Eye Liner, $35.00 in Olive Brocade.
