And should you not be able to make it, then check out our Q&A with celebrity makeup artist Mickey Williams, below, for some of her makeup tips and tricks.

Latin Times: What is the best makeup advice you have received?

Mickey Williams: Practice makes perfect. Don’t get intimidated by makeup, just have to play around with it and you will eventually figure it out!

LT: What do you think is the biggest makeup mistake people make?

MW: My whole theory is that there are no rules in makeup. I feel like people get caught up in steps and rules and truthfully, all that matters is that you feel confident in what you put on and that you feel good. If a green lipstick makes you feel amazing – then go for it!

LT: With the winter months approaching quickly, how can our readers protect their face from the cold weather?

MW: Adding something as a serum to your daily moisturizer can help create radiance and also add more moisture to your everyday routine. I recommend Lancôme’s Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum– I’ve been working with it a lot right now!

LT: What do you think is the most popular winter makeup trend and how can our readers achieve it?

MW: A bolder brow will remain very popular this season. It can be easily achieved by using a brow pencil. To ease you into a bold brow, most people can pull of a blonde shade since it will be less harsh in color and create more of a shadowing effect.
