Hottest Makeup Trends for the Holidays

Hottest Makeup Trends for the Holidays

     The holidays are right around the corner and ‘tis the season to glam it up with some runway inspired trends.  The runway looks include smoky eyes, glowing skin and rich, pigmented palettes.
Here are three on the hottest makeup trends for you to try from Merle Norman:

1. Purple is the new black
     Purple is a universal color.  It is one that everyone can wear.   You can wear a shimmering light purple on the lid for daytime and then amp it up with a glittery, darker shade at night.  Layer pewter, navy  or a shimmery beige as a base.

2. Hollywood glam

     Taylor Swift has brought back Hollywood Glam with her signature red lips.   Porcelain skin, defined brows, and crisp lines around the eyes pull this look together.  There is a red for everyone!  Create a perfect pout by using a lip liner and a lip brush to apply your red lip color.

3. The Cat-eye
     An Elizabeth Taylor inspired look is the perfect way to change up your look from daytime to evening wear.  Merle Norman’s “Purr-fect Cat Eye” kit makes this look super easy to achieve.  The kit includes the new Pro-Pen Eyeliner, a nude cream eye shadow , a black mascara and clear brow sealer, as well as instructions.
