Celebrate the Holidays with three looks to get an elegant, sparkly or satiny look.

For Holiday, MAKE UP FOR EVER has created three looks for three different occasions, designed by our makeup artist Virginie Rivière.

Discover how she created these looks.

Virginie, tell us how you found the inspiration for these 3 Looks?

I was inspired by several things: the winter universe, the Christmas ambiance and designers.

The 1st Face Chart that I named Crystal Winter Look is totally inspired by the colors of winter: white, grey and by luminous and crystalline colors, such as the crystal ice.
For the second one (Mysterious Winter Look), I was inspired by fashion designer Myrtle Quillamor, this look is more sophisticated and totally inspired by the voluptuous and feminine dresses she designs. I played with lights and shadows to propose a smoky contrast of black and grey colors.
The third look named Golden Winter is totally inspired by a golden dress from the Haute Couture Zuhair Murad Autumn/Winter 2013 fashion show. This dress is wonderful, the color is pure and very sparkling it’s why I designed a Haute Couture look with a very captivating makeup. I used a plum color to enhance the contrast with the gold.

Tell us how you created these looks?

As every makeup artist I draw my looks and I combine Art & Makeup techniques to make the face charts. I use pastels, chalk sticks, oily pens but also eye shadows, lip liners, powders and MAKE UP FOR EVER brushes to blend and shade the textures and colors.

In which occasions can we use these 3 looks?

All these looks have been designed for winter, you can wear the Crystal Winter look for the Holiday parties with friends and family but also in many other occasions. The Mysterious Winter look is a smoky contrast with versatile colors, you can wear it for any occasion or party: it’s the perfect night makeup and the Golden Winter look is more festive.
