Holiday glam in minutes!

Make Up For Ever's All Eyes On You has everything you need to get glam in mintues.Holiday stress and late night festivities can leave you looking less than your best. So here is a list of our favourite tips and products that will help you to look glamorous in just minutes.
Sudden breakouts can be disturbing, especially before special occasions. Apply ice to breakouts to reduce inflammation. A dab of over-the-counter cortisone cream can also help to reduce redness. A dermatologist can often inject large cystic pimples with a small amount of cortisone for almost instant relief. I did this with great results for years. If you prefer at-home treatments, we found a blue light with heat works the better than other devices. We had the best luck with Tanda Acne Zap and Klima blue light Wand for acne.
The overnight application of mask containing sulfur can often bring fast results. Do not try this for the first time before a big event. There are a small number of people who do not react well to sulfur. I use to love this type of mask when I suffered from breakouts. Two to try: Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Clarifying Colloidal Sulfur Mask and Olay Professional pro-X Clear Intensive Refining Sulfur Mask.
Murad’s Age-Diffusing Firming Mask is a rich, at-home skin firming mask that will instantly revive dull, dry, lackluster skin. It is the perfect pick-me-up before an evening out.  
Sudden Youth Instant Non-Surgical Facelift Kit is the creation Real Housewife of Miami Lea Black. It sounds like a gimmick but it is actually effective. The mask leaves you face looking fresh and fabulous. This not just some new “housewife” venture for Black. She was a very successful cosmetic mogul and made her own name in business before she married high-profile defense attorney Roy Black.
Benefit Highbeam is the best luminizer we have found. You can use it day or night for a believable glow. Rub it across your temples, bones, and on the inner corners of your eyes. It is the secret of makeup artists everywhere and the “glow” you often admire on your favourite celebrities.  
Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage is a two-tone concealer that lets you cover blemishes flawlessly. There are colours for any skin tone. Top it with Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Power; it stays on for hours. This may sound like a big investment and a lot of trouble, but both products last a long time. If you visit a counter with a trained Laura Mercier consultant, she will teach you how to use them properly. The results are impressive.
If you are looking for an instant glam fix, try Make Up For Ever’s All Eyes on You limited edition kit. If you aren’t familiar with this line, this is perfect way to try it. Make Up Forever is a professional line that celebrity makeup artists and stars love for flawless finishes and cutting edge trends.
The Make Up For Ever’s All Eyes on You kit has everything you need for a sensational soft, sexy look. The shades are universally flattering, so the kit will work for anyone.
I am obsessed with Smoky Lash mascara. Try it for thick, long lashes in one coat!HD High Definition Powder can be lightly bushed over oily areas to fix makeup for an evening out. This powder is a favourite of makeup artists and models because it helps to hide flaws but remains invisible on the skin. Use Aqua Cream in 16 Pink Beigehas a pinky-beige shimmer and is perfect for highlighting eyes and cheeks. It doesn’t cake or smear. This highlight is subtle, not glittery. Choose from Aqua Eyes in Mat Black or Dark Grey, a dark metallic grey, to create a bendable smoky eye. Then brush on Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara. Just two coats of this mascara give the illusion of false lashes with absolutely no clumping. Then all you need to do is refresh your blush and lip colour. Stick to soft glossy pink or peach to balance dramatic smoky eyes. If you want a dramatic red lip use a liner and no smear lip colour. Find Make Up for Ever and get expert advice at Sephora.
Fluff your hair and give it some shine
A quick spritz of instant shampoo can perk up tired tresses. If you have a few minutes more, mist your hair with plain water and blow it back into shape. The water and the heat from the dryer will reactivate whatever you used when you originally styled your hair.
If you like lots of volume, invest in electric rollers; they are the pro’s secret weapon for reviving flat hair.
René Furterer Naturia Dry Shampoo is my favourite dry shampoo. Some dry shampoos make hair look good, but your hair still feels grotty. Naturia leaves hair feeling fresh to the roots!
If your hair looks tired and dull, spritz it with Redken Shine Flash O2 Glistening Mist. This weightless mist gives hair an instant gloss.
