‘Tis the season for sipping hot cocoa, building snowmen (yes, this is still fun even when you’re all grown up), and hopping from holiday party to holiday party. But with so many soirees to go to, it can be overwhelming to think about wearing different outfits—and switching up your makeup—for each one. The thing is, you can’t go wrong with the classics. A deep, charcoal-silver smoky eye and a bold red lipstick are holiday makeup staples for a reason. These two timeless makeup trends look chic on just about every woman (especially when paired together!)—and they can add a serious touch of glam if you’re wearing your favorite little black party dress. Looking to up your holiday makeup game? Here’s how to create a gorgeous bold red lip and dramatic charcoal smoky eye.

HOW TO APPLY A BOLD RED LIPSTICK

For a striking lip color that lasts, it’s not just swipe-on-your-lipstick-and-go. Help ensure your lipstick stays put through a makeout session under the mistletoe by following these steps.

Step 1: Prep your lips. Although this season is full of holiday cheer, winter can have some pitfalls—especially when it comes to your skin. In fact, you may notice that your lips feel drier and flakier than usual this time of year. So, before you apply any lipstick, make sure to use a lip scrub to exfoliate dead skin cell buildup from the surface of your lips.

Step 2: Use a lip balm. Once you’re done exfoliating your lips, apply a lip balm to help lock in moisture.

Step 3: Swipe on a lip primer. Once more step to go before reaching for your red lipstick! Pick up a lip primer and apply it to your lips to help create a smooth, even canvas for color.

Step 4: Go bold with red lipstick. Use the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Enamel Red to create a glossy red lip or the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Matte-ly in Love to create a matte red lip. Simply start by applying your red lipstick of choice to the center of your upper lip. Work from the center to the outer edges, following the contour of your mouth. Then, glide your red lipstick across your bottom lip to complete the look. (More of a sparkly lipstick kind of girl? Check out our Holiday Makeup Tutorial: Berry Metallic Lipstick.)

HOW TO APPLY A CHARCOAL SMOKY EYE

Nothing reminds us of tinsel like shimmery silver eye shadow. Take things up a notch by opting for a more dramatic charcoal smoky eye that features a pop of metallic silver color.

Step 1: Apply primer. Prime your lids to help ensure your eye shadow doesn’t crease as you’re dancing and drinking your way through holiday party season. If you don’t have any primer on hand, a dab of foundation or concealer will work in a pinch.

Step 2: Add sparkly eye shadow. Once your base is set, it’s time to get to work on that charcoal smoky eye. Start by applying the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallics Eye Shadow in Aluminum Foil across your eyelid using your fingertip. Keep layering the eye shadow until you get your desired effect. Then, reach for a darker eye shadow shade, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eye Shadow in Noir Cest Noir, and blend it from your lashes to crease and under your lower lash line.

3. Finish your eye makeup look. When you’re done with the silver and charcoal eye shadows, apply a thin line of black liquid eyeliner close to your lash line and a coat (or more, depending on how dramatic you want to be!) of mascara. Try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Black Party and L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara.

Benefits of Hiring Pamper Perfect Mobile Spa

Mobile spa companies offer on-site beauty and relaxation treatments that can be given to an individual or a large group. Often, this company will be utilized to enhance an event by offering guests an opportunity to engage in a beauty treatment on the spot. Although the services offered by the company may differ, they generally offer a variety of services that include massage, manicures and makeup application. In today’s fast-paced workplace and hectic social world, a mobile spa is a welcome source of entertainment at a variety of events that can offer significant benefits to corporate and personal event planners.

Events that Benefit
Pamper Perfect Mobile Spa can be utilized to add an interesting element to any event. Large companies are now beginning to hire mobile spa companies to offer their employees a way to relax in order to increase creativity and production. Smaller companies, such as schools and city services, are beginning to hire a mobile spa company to provide a way to show appreciation to their employees for special events. Smaller events, such as weddings and birthdays, are also a great reason to hire a mobile spa company so that each guest can feel honored to be a part of the special day. For weddings, many brides choose to use a mobile spa to help their wedding party get dressed for the big event.

Services Offered
There are many types of services that are offered. However, facials and massage are the most popular services requested. This is due to the large amount of people who can benefit from the relaxation and pain relief that a treatment can offer. When a person hires a mobile spa for their event, they receive a versatile service that can be tailored to any type of occasion. For example, a mobile spa can create a romantic atmosphere for a couples massage or they can offer employees an outdoor package within a casual environment.

Public Appreciation
When a person chooses to hire a spa for their event, they are able to show their guests that they are appreciated. For this reason, spas are utilized by companies who would like to recognize their employees by providing them with a relaxing incentive. Additionally, mobile spas can be used for bachelorette parties, reunions and other gatherings where a person wants to pamper their guests and make them feel special. When it comes to showing appreciation, there are few better ways than to offer a person a relaxing retreat that provides instant gratification.

Generate Social Media Interest
Any event that has a mobile spa is sure to generate a great deal of social media interest as guests post photos of their spa treatments. This is most beneficial for companies who can maximize their exposure through authentic posts created by satisfied employees and other guests. Because everyone will love to brag about their massage, a brand will receive exposure through each person’s social media page.
The benefits of hiring Pamper Perfect Mobile Spa for an event go much further than one simple beauty treatment. As guests begin to relax, the event will also benefit from a conversational atmosphere that can lead to many wonderful memories. In addition to relaxing, each guest will feel pampered and will generate a positive response that can make any event stand out from the rest.

8 Excitng Bridal Shower Games Your Guests Will Love

We found this great article on Inside Weddings and had to share!
From classics like The Newlywed Game to purse raids, get ideas for your wedding shower.

Bridal showers offer an opportunity for friends and family to celebrate the bride-to-be and “shower” her with gifts or advice. While the bride will certainly know everyone in attendance, her guests may not know each other – and nothing bonds guests quite like a common love for the bride, as well as fun bridal shower games and activities.

Fortunately, there are several bridal shower games that will start the party and encourage loved ones to engage with one another. Despite the different types of personalities in your group of guests, the following games and activities will keep attendees laughing with each other throughout the event.

Consider adding some of the bridal shower games, below, to the schedule of the day in order to plan a fun bridal shower that will be enjoyed by guests of all ages.

1. Funny Notes or Advice on Jenga Blocks

Encourage guests to leave wedding advice or funny notes on Jenga blocks. The bride and her beloved will enjoy reading the messages later and will be delightfully surprised when discovering what each guest wrote.

2. The Ring Pop Game
Bridal shower ring pop game
Ask your guests to wear one Ring Pop at the beginning of the event, and let them know to refrain from saying “bride” or “wedding” throughout the day. If a guest says one of those two keywords, the person who heard it first should take the ring from the guest who broke the rule. At the end of the shower, the person with the most rings wins a prize… and several Ring Pops!

3. Bridal Shower Trivia
Bridal shower trivia game card
Create a quiz including questions recalling anecdotes or characteristics of the bride-to-be or couple. Bridal shower attendees can circle their answers as the bride reads the questions aloud. The guest who answers the most questions correctly will win a prize.

4. Advice Cards
Advice card bridal shower activity
Provide guests with themed advice cards, so they can share wise and loving words with the bride-to-be. Guests will enjoy the chance to offer some words of wisdom and appreciate your interest in learning what they have to say.

5. The Purse Raid

Create a list of items one may have in their purse, such as bobby pins, blush, or even risqué items, if you wish. At the bridal shower, the host will announce the items on the list one by one and will give a prize to the guest who pulls the corresponding item out of their purse first. Not only will it be fun competing with each other, but it will be interesting to see what everyone carries in their bags.

6. Photobooth Fun

Provide a pretty backdrop for a group photo, which will make everyone feel included on the occasion.

Photo booth props on sticks
Make the event memorable by providing guests with themed props to use while taking photos at a photo booth. A variety of props will encourage guests to trade and interact with each other while posing for the camera.

7. “Don’t Say Bride” Drinking Game
Make it a rule that guests should take a sip of their beverage every time they say, “bride.” This game will keep guests attentive and engaged throughout the event. Provide alcoholic beverages such Champagne or signature cocktails for guests who would like to drink, and offer some non-alcoholic options as well. Cheers!
8. The Newlywed Game

Have a friend gather a list of relationship-centered questions, such as “What is your fiancé’s guilty pleasure?” and “Who takes longer to get ready?” Ask the host to interview and note your fiancé’s responses before the event. At the wedding shower, the bride-to-be will be interviewed in the hot seat and guests will compare the couple’s answers. Ask guests to take their stab at the questions for some added fun!

2015 Mani Cams…..And The Winner IS!

The Oscars had NO mani Cam this year. I’m suspecting it had something to do with this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards when Julianne Moore, Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston made headlines, of a sort, by taking the revolutionary step of refusing to stick their paws in E!’s Mani Cam or maybe because Jena Malone stuck her tongue out at it and Elisabeth Moss gave it the finger.  Baaaa humbug!  It still doesn’t stop the idea of the red carpet is like a beauty contest and nails are no exception to the viewers. Just like you we were keeping an eye out for the nails as a part of the  fashion and beauty trends.  The results are in and the winner is…….light nails and underside colors were what stars preferred at the Oscars! These were some of Pamper Perfects favorites!

Jennifer Lopez~A nude, elongated nail with rose-gold under the free edge to compliment the warm, beachy tones in her Elie Saab beaded gown.

Emma Stone~A light-peach, semi-opaque nail perfectly flows with her warm complexion and light-green gown.

Lady Gaga~Even under those red gloves, I knew she had a perfect mani! Glad we got to see them (and more Alaïa!) as the night went on.

Kerry Washington~The flash of pinky-champagne lacquer reflected against her white gown beautifully.

Lupita Nyong’o~A champagne pearl nail with a Swarovski crystal on the flip side of each nail perfectly combines with her hand-sewn Calvin Klein pearl gown.

So!  Who were your faves?  Are you going to try a nude for old mani cam sake?
