The face of Dolce & Gabbana recently offered her five holiday makeup tips for party season to Vogue. Scarlett Johansson’s “Five Beauty Rules for Party Season” surfaced Saturday via Celebrity-Gossip.net. How does the new mom stay radiant through the holidays? Let’s find out the “Avengers” actress’ beauty secrets and Johansson’s suggestions for holiday makeup this year. Beauty budget alternatives are listed where appropriate.
It’s no secret the Dolce & Gabbana makeup line is extravagant beauty, making Scarlett Johansson a perfect fit with her classic beauty. The actress that turned 30 Saturday had a momentous year, highlighted by the birth of her baby, Rose. Johansson recently debuted a cropped hairstyle and admits to glamming up her style when she does go out because of the location of her new home in Paris.
Scarlett Johansson outlined her Hollywood beauty routine to Vogue earlier in the week offering five tips for holiday party makeup. Of course the Dolce & Gabbana spokeswoman recommends the lush line, but there are affordable alternatives for the more budget conscious beauty enthusiast.
The actress begins with a “bold lip,” because Johansson believes there is “no better accessory.” Scarlett prefers dark browns and red matte lips, but “not too orange or blue.” However, Glamour readers voted MAC Lipstick the number one choice for lips, and it’s half the cost of Dolce & Gabbana.
Next on Scarlett Johansson’s holiday makeup recommendations list is glitter. She suggests a pop of glitter in the corner of the eye, by the brow bone or over eyeliner. Scarlett reminds wearers to use “sparingly,” and not combine glitter on both the eyes and lips along with a highlighter. Aging skin should avoid glitter where fine lines are in abundance.
Accent the eyes with individual lashes instead of strip lashes. Scarlett Johansson uses about four to five individual lashes from the middle of the lid to the end.
Believe it or not Johansson is in love with nail art, specifically the nail stamps. Affordable DIY nail kits create glamorous holiday nails easily. KISS has inexpensive options for false eyelashes and nail designs.
Scarlett Johansson’s final holiday makeup tip is a sexy cat eye, “it’s the perfect accessory.” A cat eye can be worn with her suggested bold lip or a smoky eye. Johansson prefers an angled brush and crème eyeliner to liquid pens as she has more control. Ask the Pro Stylist recommends Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eyeliner by tarte, available at Ulta.
