With the holiday season amongst us, one of my all-time favorite things about this time of the year is the holiday parties- and surprisingly it isn’t because of the food! Whether you have work parties, family get-togethers, or just a night out with friends, here are my favorite products to make you look prepped for the occasion.
Two words: Drunk Elephant
If you haven’t tried out this skincare brand, go to Sephora right now and pick up a mini. The first product I used by DE was the Sukari Babyfacial mask, and I have been hooked ever since. Drunk Elephant caters to all skin types, and has a variety of products for skincare needs. Check out their B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum and C-Firma Day Serum to brighten your skin and glow for the holidays.
Gimme Butterflies Pressed Powder Palette - ColourPop
This palette is an Ulta exclusive and is limited edition, but the colors in the palette are incredible for a holiday look. I’ve been obsessed with pinks and reds on my lids this past fall, and can’t wait to create some looks with the beauty. It contains both matte and metallic pigments.
The holidays for me mean glitter and sparkles and lots of them. My favorite highlighter currently is by the one and only badgirlriri - Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in the shade Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby. If you look online at Sephora you can see what each shade looks like on different skin tones.
Bold Lips for Days
I hardly ever wear anything but gloss on my lips, but this season is an exception. I used to have my red lipstick phase, and it always comes out just in time for Christmas. As of this past year though, so many new and bold lip colors are so in style, so feel free to go further than that bold red. A top lip brand for me is Buxom. Check out their Full-On Lip Plumping Cream.
Glitter/ Colored Liner
This has to be one of my favorite makeup trends right now, and if I wasn’t the worst at putting eyeliner on I would do it every day. A super fun way to spice up your holiday look is to add a gold or silver eyeliner. I’ve seen this being done with super neutral eyeshadow looks and I am seriously obsessed.
Fake eyelashes always complete a makeup look by making it look both bolder and more put together. My go-to falsies are sold by House of Lashes, and I absolutely love the Noir Fairy set.
