Holiday Makeup Look: Elisha Cuthbert at the 2012 AMA’s

I loved Elisha Cuthbert’s look during the 2012 American Music Awards.  Skin is in this year, and Elisha pulled it off with this natural, bronzed look.  This, I believe is the perfect holiday makeup look for an office holiday party or if you’re meeting your significant other’s family for the first time.

What to use:

1. Highlight using NARS Orgasm Illuminator. Apply to your cheekbones, bridge of nose and cupids bow.

2.  Contour using NARS Bronzer in Laguna. Apply bronzer in a 3 or ‘E’ pattern on both sides of the face. Using a flat top kabuki brush like Sigma’s F80 Flat Kabuki ($18 at

3. Color your pout with Make Up For Ever’s Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick in #3.  You can apply it straight out of the tube or use a lip brush for precise application. You can try Sigma’s L05 Lip Brush ($10 at

4. Apply some lashes for subtle drama. I like Ardell #120.
