The Look Of Luxury

The holidays may be over, but that doesn’t mean the festivity has to stop. Jewel tones in deep, rich shades—a mature take on a pop of color—work with all skin tones and eye colors. The trend reigns in both the cosmetic and fashion worlds this season and Kassie Vitale, a Lake Grove-based makeup artist, gave Pulse a rundown of some of her favorite products. Why? “Jewel tones are great for this winter season because they offer highly pigmented colors to brighten up any look.”

1. Lancôme Hypnôse Dazzling Eyeshadow
Add a little glimmer to any look with this dazzling shadow applied as a sweep or as part of a layered finish. The goldish-grey tone of 303 Noir is perfect for smoky eyes. $25

2. Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick
A bold lip color infused with vitamins that lasts 10 hours. Kick up classic red lips with this paraben- and sulfate-free formula in Hexagram, a deep red for all skin tones. $21
