We here at Holiday Salon are big fans of the fake out. Want crazy hot eyes? That’s what false lashes are for. Hungover and bleary-eyed? Visine still loves you. There are a ton of tricks like these, so to find out how to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes without spending a lot of loot, just keep reading…
Mile-long legs: Just swipe some luminizer in a vertical line down the center of your legs. It’s the same idea as wearing pin stripes to lengthen, but sneakier. We love Scott Barnes’ Body Bling…best thing that ever happened to your legs.
Bright eyes: If your eyes are tired or you need a pick-me-up, try using an eyeliner pencil that’s just slightly lighter than your skin tone. Ask Misha or Ally for suggestions.
Fuller lips: Fill in your cupid’s bow with a bright color to make it look like you have significantly more upper lip. A dab of gloss in the center of your lips will maximize the poutiness.
A more defined jaw: If you want to give yourself more dramatic facial angles, try dusting bronzer under your chin and around the underside of your jawline. This simple trick will create the illusion of a sharper contour.

Ever wonder what kind of lighting is best for applying makeup? So did we… read on sister, read on.
The first thing to consider:
- It’s a sunshine day: The best kind of lighting mimics sunlight since it’s the purest light. It’s also the most unforgiving — perfect for makeup application so that you don’t miss a thing. For the easiest way to get this crisp, bright effect, purchase a natural light makeup mirror. (Brookstone carries a great one)
Other things to consider:
- The source: Overhead lighting, or lighting from behind, will likely cast unwanted shadows on the face. When applying makeup, the light source should be straight in front of you so that it illuminates the front and sides of the face without any glare. Almost all makeup mirrors (including vanity mirrors) are designed to eliminate this problem.
- If you’re buying bulbs: Look for ones labeled “daylight spectrum” or “natural light.” And if you really want to get into lighting a room correctly for applying makeup (wattage types, shielded fixtures, and all), talk to a lighting expert.
- Think about where you’re going: Office lighting is different than, say, candlelight dinner lighting. Remember: natural light is the go-to for the purest results.
