You want to get in the holiday spirit? (I’m not quite there yet myself.) Start planning your holiday party face. This week, we’ve got five local makeup artists who are sharing their favorite festive makeup looks and the must-have tools. I’ve worked with or experienced first-hand the talent of each one of these beauty gurus, and I’m thrilled with each of the final selections. First up, a smoky eye with bold brows and a dark lip. You’ll want to change your facial expression (“menacing” doesn’t say “holiday cheer”), but I love a good dark lip for winter.
The Artist: Kate Conkey, freelance makeup artist
The Look: “Tarnished Gilded Glamour,” a sexy, slightly smudgy gold-green smoky eye, strong sleek brow, dewy skin, super contoured cheek bones, and a mahogany plum stained lip.
