New Year’s Beauty No-Nos From Mario Tricoci

Mario Tricoci

Mario Tricoci

Whether you’re hitting a big bash or sticking to a small gathering of friends this New Year’s Eve, you don’t want a beauty blunder to spoil the evening.  According to the experts at Mario Tricoci Hair Salons & Days Spas, there are a few New Year’s beauty no-nos that every woman should avoid.

No-No #1: Stressing over your locks.  You don’t have to spend hours on your tresses to look picture perfect.  For example, you can create a beautiful beachy wave with a few simple braids, a hair dryer, and the right products; watch Mario Tricoci’s John Gialluisi demo the technique here. Or if it’s volume you crave, pop in some large Velcro rollers, add a shot of heat with your dryer, then set with a finishing spray.  Talk to your stylist for more shortcuts to make styling for the big night a snap.

No-No #2: Starving your skin. The right makeup can enhance your party-ready look, but it needs a good canvas from which to start.  That’s why you can’t skimp on skincare during the holidays.  For example, a good exfoliating product like GlyMed’s Chocolate Masque will eliminate dead skin, brighten your complexion, and enable your other products to really do their job.  Or target the eyes with a product like the ProCell Triple Action Eye Treatment, which firms, hydrates and soothes the skin via a Matricol collagen eye mask. 

No-No #3: Deciding to go with a dramatic make-up statement…one hour before the party.  A smokey eye or a strong lip color can definitely create a memorable look, but if you want to take the plunge talk to a beauty professional first about the shades and techniques that will work best for you.  At Mario Tricoci, your make-up artist can even custom blend your eye shadow, lipstick and more for a high-impact look that’s uniquely you. You can also pick-up a new technique with an online tutorial; click here to see a Mario Tricoci make-up artist demonstrate how to create a classic smokey eye.

No-No #4:  Using make-up that quits long before you do.  Keep your face in place and shine at bay all night with an airbrush makeup application. Airbrush make-up provides light, flawless coverage that lasts up to 18 hours — perfect for midnight and beyond.

No-No #5: Neglecting your nails.  Your nails are just as important to your overall look as you hair and make-up. If you want low maintenance holiday color, try a No Chip manicure, which keeps your 10 perfect for up to two weeks.  If you don’t have time for a mani, try refreshing your current polish with a coat of Essie’s shin-e top coat for a fresh from the manicurist look. Prefer to go polish-free?  Buff your nails to add natural shine.
