Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved getting dressed up.  My first thought when I receive an event invitation is: What am I going to wear?!  I particularly love the holidays because there are so many events to get dressed up for! Whenever I put together a look for a holiday party, there are two main themes that run through my head: is this look going to be naughty or nice? A “naughty look” consists of sultry makeup and a glamorous gown. A “nice look” is more playful with elegant makeup and a dress you can dance in.

THE DRESSES

As part of my 12 Days of Holiday Style, I wanted to create both a naughty and a nice look.  It did not take me long to find the dresses (and both are under $100!!) This floor length beaded Art Deco gown from Ever-Pretty immediately took my breath away.  I knew instantly that it would be perfect for a more dramatic makeup look.  What I also love about this gown is it reminds me of my favorite fashion era: the Roaring 20’s.  A close second choice was this gorgeous beaded gown.

For a nice look, I chose a burgundy velvet v-neck gown with a thigh-high slit. Velvet is the fabric of the season and made for holiday parties! Plus, it is ultra lightweight and comfortable. This dress also comes in a beautiful blue color that would pair lovely with a white faux-fur coat. There is a similar style velvet gown here which is also a great holiday dress.

THE MAKEUP

And now for the makeup! I created both my makeup looks with the TEMPTU Air. A cordless device that allows you to create an airbrush makeup application like a pro!  It’s nice not having to worry about using different makeup brushes and sponges (and then cleaning them afterward.) The TEMPTU Air creates a lightweight, fine mist for flawless coverage from foundation to blush, bronzer and highlighter.  I can even adjust the settings for the amount of makeup I want to apply from sheer, medium, full coverage, spot conceal, and contour. I used the medium setting for both of these looks with the color and it was plenty of coverage.  I am wearing the Perfect Canvas Foundation in “Birch”
