Read on for tips from Zanna Roberts Rassi, Senior Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, celebrity beauty and make-up artist Jamie Greenberg and reality stars Snooki and JWOWW.
Style It Forward
Friends, moms and celebrity stylists Zanna Roberts Rassi and Jamie Greenberg share their insider tips for “winning” the holidays. How to rock a long gold skirt to that holiday party, how to do a bold lip and the “it” item to bring the hostess of the party; for these tips and more, check out their latest “Style It Forward” video, available now on go90.
And to keep your skin looking fresh all winter-long, feel free to usethese makeup tips from Jamie:
· To keep skin moist, make sure to take off your makeup with a cleansing oil. This way you won't strip your skin of essential oils. Hydrating while cleaning is the best!
· To brighten your smile, use bronzer on your face where the sun would naturally hit it.
· I love products that work for you while you wear them. BB cream is great because it brightens, moisturizes, corrects, smooths and primes! Originally created for after surgery care, this is a big winner.
· To keep lipstick on all day, make sure to layer. Start with a lip stain, liner, powder to set and then the lipstick!
