Go for Gold: Festive Pretty with Chanel Poudre Précieuse Or and Glossimer Gloss

If you're a neutrals girl (most of us are), makeup for your holiday shindig can be as easy as polishing your day look with a golden sheen on cheekbones and gold or rich red on lips.

Keep makeup simple with a shimmering nude or soft gold shade on lids and a deep brown or black shade in a fine line along the base of your upper lashes. Up the drama with black waterproof liner along the inner upper rims and smudged up into the base of lashes. Curl lashes, add a couple of coats of black mascara, and dust cheeks with rosy blush.

Highlight cheekbones (décolleté and shoulders, too) with a light sweep of shimmery gold, such as Chanel Poudre Précieuse Or ($66 CAN/$75 US), and finish with Chanel Glossimer lipgloss ($30 CAN/$26 US) in Gold Shine for subtle glam, or Red Shine if you're feeling sassy.

Actually, go with sassy. Sassy's hot for holiday fun. Just ask Clive-O -- and Daniel-C. *grin*
