Nicole Jacob is the go-to makeup artist for many of the area’s high-profile women. She was pictured in W Magazine recently and named as “the one to watch” and “be prepared for waitlist status.” You can find her at the Paul Rehder Salon—939 N. Rush St. (312) 943-7404. Added bonus– her own cosmetic line is FABULOUS!Here’s her tips:
Please don’t wear red lipstick just because of the holiday. It looks awful on most people.
If you want to be festive with color, change your eyeliner. Blue, purple and grey are all great colors for now.
The most important tip is MASCARA! There is no better way to say this. If you wear no makeup, light makeup or glam makeup—LOAD, LOAD, LOAD on the mascara. Everyone I’ve ever come across is always too light handed with this. We’ll never beat Tammy Faye so don’t be scared. Even better for special evenings are fake lashes!
Bronzer — I think this is the most important product for winter. This is when we are the palest and need it the most.
Lip gloss, lip gloss, LIP GLOSS! Every day all day. Makes us look younger at every age. Make sure it’s a light color—not too dark. I even wear it to bed. It makes me feel better.
Always keep a clean brow—a well groomed brow gives a polished look.
Look like yourself. Do not have a hairstyle that makes you feel it is not you.
Tease your regular hair style. It gives it more of a “party look.”
Even if you don’t usually use hairspray, do it for that special night.
Curls are big. On your next hair cut appointment, ask your stylist to show you how to make soft curls with your curling iron, or better yet, a flat iron.
A hair ornament gives any hair style a festive look.
