Celebrate White Make-Up Giveaway

Win and celebrate winter whites with make-up from Shu Uemura and Make Up For Ever.
Hi! Keeping my promise to ride the holiday season out with festive, fun holiday giveaways, here's one I've been saving eagerly for the end of December because it symbolizes my favorite color, or maybe I should say non-color: WHITE! I've loved white everything forever. White clothes, furniture -- and white make-up is actually a ton of fun, and actually quite versatile.

For example you can use the above white eyeshadow (a hard to get one from Shu Uemura!) as a highlighter to bring out your bone structure. Use your fingers to gently dab a little on your brow-bones, the bridge of your nose, the point of your chin, and your cheekbones. You can also use a small, pointed eye makeup brush to apply a tiny bit of the white eyeshadow to the inner and outer corner of your eyes to brighten them. The results may surprise you :-).

To have a chance to win the goodies just tell me how you feel about white make-up, in the comment form below. Winner will be announced next week!


*And the winner is Cindy-y! Thanks for commenting!
