Dare to be Bold?

With getting all dolled up for all of these special occasions, that the Holidays and New Years bring, we not only put on something extra pretty but we tend to spend some extra time with our pretty little faces too. This is a great time to go for that bolder look that you may always want to do, yet steer away in fear of looking too 'over done'. Well, why not try it now, to go with that fabulous dress, jumpsuit, or rockin' pant suit you will be wearin' and a stylin' in ? Here are some looks to give you some inspiration and a little extra push, perhaps, in daring to be a little bit bolder with your make up these Holidays!

Love Cameron's hi-lited cheekbones.

A little softer look, yet still on the bolder side.

I have always been a fan of Jennifer's smokey eye look.

Here's a quick self help 'how to' with a smoky eye look...there are more you can view...lips, cheeks,etc. too.

If you're not a fan of the bolder make up style, yet want to add a little more to your look, accessorize your hair. These lovelies did and all look fab! All images below found @ essence

Great for short hair when you want to dress the hair up.

I love that Kelly went for something different and is trying to bring back a style.
You can find a style of this look, beautifully designed, here: RACHEL STEWART

Not only love the clip, but Tyra has a nice make up app. herself.

These are just to give you a couple of ideas, when looking for that perfect hair piece!

Whether you do go BOLD or play it safe, just remember to go loving how you look, and with what you feel confident in. The confidence you hold in how you look will, by far, have you looking more beautiful than any extra eyeliner, eyeshadow, blush or bronzer will...though, those don't hurt to try either;)



  1. I'm all about glitzy hair adornment!

  2. I've always wanted to go for red lipgloss, but I've never had the guts to leave the house with it on. New Years' Resolution, maybe...

  3. Yes, I am one to love to dress my hair up as well!!

    Go for the red lips girl!! I bet you they look so good, once you step out, I am sure you'll be glad you did it!
