Holiday Makeup Must-Haves

No comments:
Having to scrape off the morning ice from my car officially signals to me that the holidays are right around the corner. Before we know it we will be off to holiday soirees, so here are a few simple ways to take your everyday look to holiday perfection.
Graphic Liner
This is definitely not limited to holiday, but I think a basic graphic liner look is the perfect base in order to build a holiday look. It can easily take you from day to night with a few simple additions for those after work parties. Consider adding a gold liner on top of your typical black for that extra bit of holiday glamour!
Red Lips
Nothing says holiday like a bold red lip. Bright red's with blue undertones are traditionally festive, but if you are looking for something a little bit different, you can check out what I've been loving this season.
A Little Bit of Sparkle
I will be the first to say I am a big fan of glitter, and there is no better time to get your glitter fix than the holidays! Go bold with a glitzy eye, or work it in more subtly by getting some use out of your favourite glitter polishes. Don't let the opportunity to sparkle go to waste!
Fresh Skin
This is the time of the year when even oily-skinned girls can lay off the heavy powder. Nothing looks prettier in dim holiday lights than a little glow! Think about skipping the powder all together for a fresh and natural look, or topping your makeup with a setting spray instead to keep everything in place without looking powdery. Top it all off with your favourite cream or powder highlight and you'll be looking candlelit all night long.
Stay tuned to see how I use these products to create my favourite looks for the holidays!
