Holiday craze is amongst us with ‘to-do’ lists long as day consisting of shopping, company affairs, holiday parties and family gatherings. It is very easy to forget about the joy of getting dolled up this season. Take a deep breath, unwind and opt for some pampering to stay photo ready!

Here are some easy ways to put the ‘glitz’ into your beauty routine and amp your look for the holidays. Whether you are a glam girl, a mascara-lipgloss-go type, or just looking for some fresh inspiration, then you’ve come to the right place.

GLITTER LIPS

Glitter became a huge trend this fall & it’s remaining strong into the holidays. Patting a touch of glitter on top of your favorite bold lip color can add some glitz to keep you looking festive.

GLITTER EYES

Stacie’s Product Pick: To achieve this looks use Lit Cosmetics Glitters This pack comes in a rainbow of shades and 4 different sizes, talk about a variety of looks! // $16 per color.

 

Start with matte shades of eyeshadow then use a smidgen of glitter to add some light in areas desired. You can also dab glitter lightly as an eyeliner alternative and to emphasize the cat-eye look, place some on center of eye or near the tear duct to open up the eye. Brief disclaimer; glitter can be fun and festive so be careful when using around your eyes. Also be sure to use an eye gloss or glitter adhesive to ensure its long lasting stay and only use cosmetic grade glitter.

VAMPY LIPS

In a sea of red lips why not stand out with a the deeply rich shades of berry, chocolate or blackened violet, oh lala! You can keep it fresh with a hint of sheen or dare to go full on vintage with a matte finish.

 

 

SMOKEY FESTIVE EYES

As the temperatures drop smoky and smudgy eyeshadow come into play. Why not warm things up by adding some metallic copper shade around the eyes? This color is gorgeous on every skin tone and eye color. If you find yourself split between gold & silver, try both! Use one shade on the top lid and the other on the bottom.

Regardless of what method you opt for the most important of them all is a fresh healthy skin. Our skin is constantly expose to indoor heating and harsh winds during the winter and to ensure a healthy glow it is important to exfoliate. Make sure to use as needed in order to reveal fresh healthy skin and kick your moisture up a notch by using richer moisturizers or appropriate oil’s to keep moisture in. After applying foundation, powder the t-zone to keep your natural dewiness where needed.

FULL LASHES

A constant trend this holiday season are full wispy lashes. To achieve this look, curl lashes and then apply mascara, add just a touch on the bottom. Vamp up by adding a pair of falsies where the tips taper to a point to achieve a fluttery lightness.
