Perfect for the Office Holiday Par-tay
Why do they call office holiday get togethers “parties”? Everybody knows the only reason you show up is because you have to!
So, what do I do when I know I’ll be subjected to this farce o’ revelry? I buy a new dress to ease the pain a bit and work some fierce makeup, of course.
This year I plan to wear a bronze, gold and khaki smokey eye with punchy pink cheeks and lips. Lynn Furge, Becca cosmetics national artist and all around cool lady, created this look just for Makeup and Beauty Blog. Pretty, yah?
The beautiful Marcella Faustini, a Bay Area in-house artist for Becca, worked her magic when re-creating the look:
To get it, Marcella used the following products:
– Becca Mattifying Primer to prep skin ($35.00)
– Becca Line and Pore Corrector to fill in spots and to smooth out lines and pores ($32.00)
– Becca Skin Color SPF 20+ as a tinted moisturizer ($40.00)
