MakeupDos and Don’ts of Holiday Makeup Inspired by Celebrities
  • Heidi Klum hosted her Halloween party this past weekend since Hurricane Sandy postponed it. While her costume is impressive, the face full of rhinestones is probably uncomfortable and a bit much. Don't do this even if you're obsessed with rhinestones.

  • To add a little sparkle for a night out, press on one (or a few if you're daring) rhinestone on the outer corner of your eyes like Kat Graham did here.

  • Don't cover your face or eyes in glitter like Ke$ha even if you're at a holiday party or celebrating New Year's. Unless you're six years old, add just a touch of glitter to your usual makeup look to update it for the holidays.

  • Shimmery eyeshadow like what Katy Perry is wearing is gorgeous. Find a gorgeous shimmery shade like bareMinerals High Shine Eyecolor or dab on loose glitter on top of a cream shadow but be careful so it doesn't go all over your face.

  • Metallics are in this season, but blue metallic lips are too much unless you're Lady Gaga.

  • Wear the metallic trend on your eyes instead like Charlize Theron. Find a shade that goes well with your skin tone and a formula that isn't too shimmery if you want to find a more wearable look. Try Bobbi Brown Metallic Eye Shadow.

  • While we're feeling a little pasty without our summer glow, too much bronzer can be a bad thing. Catherine Zeta-Jones went overboard with bronzer and it's very noticeable.

  • Use bronzer or blush like Minka Kelly to get a healthy glow and flushed cheeks without looking like an oompa loompa.
