Beauty Look: Blackberry Jam

During the holidays, it's your time to shine. This is an easy "two-way" makeup tip.

Whether you're visiting your boyfriend's house for Christmas or spending time with more conservative relatives, you might consider wearing a toned-down makeup look to their homes. After spending time with family, you might attend a dressier party with friends closer to your age.

Here's how to go from a pretty, lady-like look to glamour girl in seconds.


1. Apply Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Blackberry, or another deep berry shade that works with your skintone, and remove most of the lipstick with a tissue. This will create a universally flattering lip stain.

2. Next, trace brown eyeliner from the middle of your lash line to the outer corner of your eye. Smudge.

3. Sweep Bobbi Brown's Shimmer Brick Blush in Rose across the cheeks.

Turn The Beat Around

1. If you go out later in the evening to a party with friends, take the same blackberry lipstick and re-apply it. This time, don't smudge it off.

2. Add a sweep of mascara, or several sweeps to amplify your lashes.

Knock 'em dead!
