PARTY PERFECT BEAUTY LOOKS: Trop Rouge “Golden Goddess”

30 Nov

We teamed up with Christina Cardona, the model/actress/blogger behind Trop Rouge, and Smashbox Cosmetics to bring you the most coveted looks of the season. Perfect for a holiday party or even a night out on the town, the looks that this It-Girl styled for 7 For All Mankind are the stuff of 90s-chic fairytales.

Christina is known for her whimsical and muted style. A true New Yorker, she is known to pair unexpected pieces and layer on usual jewelry. We love her style so much that we invited her to Smashbox Studios to style an exclusive holiday shoot.

She chose this pair of pearlized jeans to mix with a black, sheer blouse and a punch of faux fur. A few rings and a statement necklace later, the final result was the perfect mix of holiday and rocker.

The holiday season is the perfect time to experiment with eye catching, shimmery beauty trends and to truly capture the spirit of the season, Smashbox Global Pro Artist Lori Taylor wanted to play up the Tomboy-chic vibe that Christina channeled with a bronzy “Golden Goddess” beauty look.

Here’s how to get her look:


  1. Prep skin using Smashbox Photo Finish Lumizing Primer.
  2. Apply Photo Finish Lid Primer to your lids.
  3. Groom brows using Brow Tech to Go.
  4. Take care of problem spots with Smashbox’s handy High Definition Concealer.


  1. Using the Studio Pop Eye Shadow Palette, sweep the shade “Nude” all over the lid.
  2. Add “Nutmeg” to the crease of the lid for bronzy definition.
  3. Apply “Bark” along the upper and lower lash line with a smudging brush to make eyes pop.
  4. Line the inner rim of your eye with Smashbox Graphite Pencil.
  5. Finally, Lori suggests two coats of Full Exposure Mascara, followed by a false lash, then another coat of mascara to blend.


  1. Use Smashbox Blush Rush in “Gingersnap” and “Bare” to add warmth to the apples of your cheeks.
  2. Then a touch of Halo Bronzer all over the face and cheeks for some added color.


  1. Finish your look with High Shine Lip Gloss in “Candy” to copy Christina’s succulent lacquer look.
