Guest Post: Makeup with Kristie

kristie 5x7We have an awesome guest post from Kristie at Blushing Basics:

As a freelance Makeup Artist, the Holidays are one of the busiest times of the year. Since not everyone wants to splurge on a Makeup Artist, I thought it would be helpful to pass on some tips and techniques to get your Thrifty Holiday Look. I went to my local CVS and picked up some makeup to create this fantastic look. I purchased my Wet ‘n Wild eyeshadow, lip gloss, eyeliner, highlighter, and nail polish for only $8.50. Combine that with my makeup tutorial explaining the basic application technique, you too can look like you just left the Makeup Artist’s chair.

I hope this was helpful in creating your own Thrifty Holiday Look. As a tip from an insider, blending is your key to success.
