Today I've partnered with Q-Tips to share my Q-Tips Holiday Glam look and also tips for after you've done your beauty look. Creating a beauty look involves not only the creation but also the refinement at the end. If you need to sharpen up your look, Q-tips® Precision Tips™ and makeup remover are an economical way of cleaning up makeup messes without the need to use up a whole makeup wipe. You can also use q-tips to clean up your nails too so it's incredibly multi-purpose so you're covered from head to toe!
Here are the ways I use q-tips to complete up my beauty look:
Eyes: Inner Corner Cleanup
I use a Q-tips Precision Tip to create a clean edge and to make sure my eyeshadow starts and ends exactly where I want it to. After I've applied the eyeshadow all over my eyelid and on my inner corner, I use the q-tip to clean up the shape and make sure it doesn't look messy. It also helps to clean up any eyeshadow fallout. Eye look complete!
Lips: Red Lipstick Cleanup
During the holiday season, everyone whips out the red and dark lip colors but these can be particularly unforgiving around the lip line. A lip brush can only do so much if you've got unsteady hands. After applying a red lipstick, I use some makeup remover or concealer around the edge to get a clean line. Red lip look complete!
Nails: Nail Polish Cleanup
Like red lipstick, red nail polish often comes out for the winter season. Reds can be unforgiving when the nail polish floods your cuticles or the sides of your nails. It's hard for me to cover my whole nail so I'm always cleaning up afterwards. I also did a nail look combining a gold foil nail polish with a red creme nail polish. I dabbed on some of the gold using a piece of plastic wrap to get a slightly marbled look.
and here's my final look. Eyes, Lips, and Nails all put together for a party!
I hope my look inspires you when you're gearing up to do your makeup for a holiday party or gathering! Neatness counts and the details really do matter. Feel free to visit Q-Tips' Instagram for lots of inspiration and Holiday Glam looks!
