Paint the town Red {Holiday Top Makeup Picks}

This Holiday go red or go home! Ladies bring out the Rudolph in you by not donning on a shiny red nose but lips instead. This Holiday season look your best! With the help of Pro Makeup Artist for FACE atelier Amy Zdunowski-Roeder, she offers her top Holiday makeup product recommendations:

  1. Face Atelier Ultra Foundation: As the weather changes your skin does too. The winter brings intense heat indoors and blustery cold outdoors- both of which can negatively manipulate your skin. This amazing silicon-based foundation will combat any weather and simply give you an unbelievably flawless, youthfully radiant look. Lady Gaga is “gaga” over this product! Where to buy
  2. Smith’s Rosebud Salve: Where there is winter, there are chapped lips. Lips need extra love during this season and Smith’s is the answer to our frosty woes. Not only will it protect your lips, it can be used on chapped skin, rough cuticles, etc. Your best wintery friend in a tiny blue tin. Available at and Sephora
  3. St. Ives Cucumber & Elastin Eye and Face Stress Gel: After a long night of a little too much holiday cheer, sometimes the gift of distressed and puffy eyes awaits you the next morning. St. Ives to the rescue! This easy to apply gel instantly, yes instantly, reduces swollen eyes and leaves your face feeling alive and energized. It won’t break your bank either. Keep it in the refrigerator for an even more cool and refreshing sensation. Available at most drug stores
  4. Red Lipstick: This holiday season red is all the rage. The deeper the red... the better! Red is transforming and will bring any outfit to life. From home, to the office to a holiday party red lipstick is a head turner. Don’t worry about smudging, to keep red lipstick in place either apply a thin layer of Chapstick over top or seal it with some loose powder and Voila! Face Atelier in Red Fuscia – available at

  1. Reds by MAC are definitely my favorite.. but their products can be so expensive. Any cheaper MAC imitators out there?

  2. Here's my very 1st blog post with recs:
    Hope that helps!

  3. Wow, this helps a lot! Thank you! I like anything cheaper that I can find at a drug store. :)

  4. Still to shy to wear reds >< I go for a plumy dark red like MAC TWIG, but that's not very holiday. I'll paint my nails red though!

  5. anonymous, your welcome!
    BabyBubblz, are you sure you didn't mean another MAC lipstick? MAC twig is a nude/beige with grey undertones (I use to wear that shade throughout highschool:). A great plum shade is MAC Del Rio, another old fave.

  6. Vasanti lipstick in USA! It probably the only red i would wear out... you know one day anyway lol

  7. I love, love, love Face Atelier Ultra foundation! I have been wearing it for several months. I also like their lipsticks and eyeshadows. The foundation provides wonderful coverage and looks very natural. Great makeup line!!
