Makeup Artist Stacey Frasca's Winter 2015 Beauty Tips

BeautyNavigate with StyleComment

Stacey Frasca is an expert makeup artist with over 20 years in the business, a beautiful person inside and out with a sparkling personality and my friend. A few years ago, Stacey opened up her own beauty studio and created her namesake line of richly pigmented colors and luxurious formulas (see my previous profile of Stacey here) and has been an indie smash success in a vast sea of beauty brands. 

I asked Stacey to share her latest beauty tips to kick off 2015 in style! 

* Winter 2015 all about what I'm calling Pure Drama. I'm giving lips a vinyl-like finish with deep, plum toned lip glosses like Bad Bessie or Squeeze Toy. Another way to achieve this sexy lip look is with my Plumberry lipstick topped with my deep and dramatic Venom lip gloss.

* Give eyes a high intensity metallic finish with my  Playboy or Beachy eye shadows as base colors with Shiver or Sugar used as a highlighter under the brows. This combo gives eyes an amazing, instant lift.

* Brows have been trending big for a few seasons. Give yours lots of natural definition by layering brow pencils and shadows for a full, realistic look. I've been using my Brow Pencil in Taupe and Eye Shadow in Oyster Bar with my Angle Brow Brush No. 15.

* Contour and highlighting is a must-do combo, especially for evening looks. You can define and slim every facial feature - perfect for all those selfies! My contour kit is available exclusively on Amazon Luxury Beauty and the palette comes with detailed instructions for nailing the look. It may take a bit of practice, but it's worth it!
