The Holiday Party Must-Have Accessory? Napoleon Perdis Cosmetics10:22 am
It won't be long before the holiday party invites start filling up your inbox.
Don't worry. I've got the perfect thing for you to wear - Napoleon Perdis Cosmetics!
Napoleon Perdis is a makeup artist first and foremost. His philosophy is not about following trends, but making you look your best, working with your features.
Because as much as I'd like to look like Charlize Theron, uh, I'm more of the David Spade ilk.
And when a makeup artist designs a cosmetics line, you know that you're going to get products that hold and work, that you can actually wear.
Take Colour Discs (pictured above), for example.
These pigment-rich, paraben-free shadows give you a range of looks because they go on ultra smooth and are blendable (yes, even for the makeup application-challenged like me). So sweep on a light layer, go heavy for those nights on the town or blend different colours to get a completely custom look! They come in 4 finishes - sparkle, shimmer, matte and metallic - and 19 colours, so you can work your look for whatever the occasion.
One of the best ways I've discovered to change up my look (since I've looked the same since kindergarten, this is always a challenge) is to use different coloured Eye Pencils.
I love the creamy texture. They feel so good! Maybe it's the natural antioxidants, or the fact that they don't have any preservatives or mineral oil like those cheap drugstore brands. Gray Matters is perfect for doing a smoky eye and Purple Reign make my green eyes pop! Raw Denim is so on trend and nice for doing something a little lighter and Lush Lagoon is a gorgeous teal for those of you who can't decide whether to do green or blue.
One of the ways to look younger is to have a fuller brow. The Napoleon Perdis Eyebrow Pencil is fantastic. You don't have to ever sharpen it (woo woo!) and it is easy to apply (thank you!).
What a difference applying Lip Pencil makes - you get a longer-lasting, perfect looking pout and it's one of the quickest ways to look polished. Pinot Noir and Rococo Red are the perfect accompaniment for whatever shade of lipstick or gloss you choose.
For a new look this season, you've got to get yourself Luminous Lip Veils.
This "liquid lipstick" gives you the high shine that you get from lip gloss and the rich colour that you can only get from lipstick. Napoleon says, "Sheer, glossy shine that is truly divine." With lychee extract and aloe vera, you get a soft, smooth lip that stays that way. I love the skating in the park sparkle of Rare Opal and the ultra modern look that you get with Cherchez La Femme
Napoleon Perdis Cosmetics take you from early morning meetings to holiday parties that go all night!
