Get the Look: Holiday Makeup with Celebrity Makeup Artist Shiyena

Get the Look – Holiday 2009 Beautyfix Cover

The latest Beautyfix catalog features an amazing holiday makeup look for this season. Celebrity Makeup Artist Shiyena created brilliance that jumps right off the page. The makeup artist, who’s worked with celebs like Zooey Deschanel and Taylor Swift, is known for her ability to make makeup look flawless. She created a fresh, clean face on the model with a classic red lip – a perfect combination for this holiday season. So how can we get this fabulous look for ourselves? We went right to the source and learned how to get the look straight from Shiyena herself!

Step 1) Moisturize your face with  Balance Light-Weight Moisture by Canyon Ranch Your Transformation and moisturize your lips with pur-lisse pur-lip comfort. Since we’re going for the dark lips, you have to make sure your lips are smooth and not rough and dry.

Step 2) While your face and lips are soaking up the moisture, prime the eyelids. Shiyena likes Urban Decay’s Primer Potion.

Step 3) Swipe on a matte, light nude shadow like MAC’s Vanilla all over the lids and up to the brow bone.

Step 4) Swipe a medium brown shadow from your Raw Natural Beauty Mineral Eyeshadow Trio to add some depth to the crease. Swipe the darker color from the trio on the bottom lash line.

Step 5) Glide on a gel liner (Shiyena used MAC’s Blacktrack) right on the upper lash line and wing it out just a little bit in the outer corners. We also like Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink and Smashbox’s Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner in Midnight Black.

Step 6) Add false lashes from Ardell. You can go natural by adding individual lashes, which is what Shiyena did on the Beautyfix cover, or add a little extra vava voom and go for the full strip lashes.

Step 7) Shiyena applied foundation and powder all over the face to give it a finished, matte look. You want to save the “glowing” look for some other time. With this holiday makeup look, you want to keep it pretty simple and clean.

Step 8)  Fill in your eyebrows following your natural arch.

Step 9) Apply blush to the apples of the cheek while smiling.

Step 10) Line your lips with a red lip liner. Shiyena used Nars China lipliner lightly and filled it in to give it depth.

Step 11) Apply any red lip color you desire. Shieyna used Chanel’s Russet Moon on our model.

And Voila! Now you can be your own makeup artist and give yourself a gorgeous holiday makeup look at home.

It’s not complicated to apply and it’s classy and beautiful for any occasion. The great thing about this look is that it can transfer from a day to night very easily and without much effort. Just be sure to keep those red lips ruby red!
