Olivia and Sylvie Chantecaille
What is your favourite on-trend look for the party season?
Sylvie: I love a sexy, bright lip in a great berry color and soft eyes that are gently iridescent, with lots of lashes. Skin should be kept radiant and cheeks come alive with a great cheek crème blush.
Olivia: I like to wear a raspberry lip during the holidays, red is too cliché. I think the holidays are the best time to use a highlighting powder.
What are your favorite products to use?
Sylvie: First off, I always use my Future Skin foundation and more importantly my HD Perfecting Powder, which looks flawless and amazing! I like using my Cheek Crème in Demure and our Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara. I always line my lashes to make them look stronger and usually use our Gel Liner Pencil because it’s so easy to use and stays in place.
Olivia: I wear the Nano Gold Energizing Cream all the time to survive the holiday season. Our new Les Petales highlighting powder looks beautiful on, but also looks elegant when I pull it out of my purse because of the lovely rose petal embossing. Les Fetes Trio is the easiest to palette to use when getting ready for glamorous party, the full-proof colors work with any outfit, adding the perfect amount of colour and light to the eyes and face.
How to create the perfect party look using different techniques…
Sylvie: Our new Les Fetes Trio palette for holiday is exactly what I am talking about. I adore it because it gives you the beautiful, wet-shimmery crystal look without any heaviness or tackiness; very elegant and very, very sexy. For a bolder look I like to layer a red gloss over a berry lip. I highlight just under my eyes and my cheekbones with Les Fetes trio’s lighter shades, using my fingers to apply.
Olivia: To make sure nothing competes with my lip color, I blend a light wash of gray or beige on my lids and dust on a barely there cheek color. After I apply our Nocturne Lip Chic I line my lips with the matching Lip Definer in Impression.
Any insider tips on surviving the party season and how to stay looking your best?
Sylvie: Try to nap, even if for only 10 minutes, it really helps. The best thing for me is to do is take a shower or bath after work. It gets rid of the energy from the workday and lets me be fresh and have a good time.
Olivia: Sleep in a mask. I recommend our hydrating and anti-wrinkle Jasmine & Lily Healing Mask.
