CHARLOTTE, N.C. - There are so many holiday related social events such as tree lightings, dinner with friends, and work Christmas parties, and we here at Charlotte Today know most people cannot afford to hit the salon for every special event. Here are three things you can do at home to get glammed up.
Charlton Alicea is a makeup artist from Jeffre Scott and a hairstylist at Varji Varji.
He says that the best way to do a simple up-do is to start with a low and loose pony tail. Twist the pony tail and push it in towards the base of the neck, secure with a large bobby pin in the middle, and makesure the hair on top isn’t too high or it will create a “Snooki poof.”
Charlton also has great advice on how to create a beautiful smoky eye without using blues or grey tones, and how to pick a fabulous red lip color for your type of skin tone.
