Holiday Makeup Guide


With the Holidays approaching I wanted to share some of my favorite makeup choices for each occasion - Christmas Party, Family Get - together and New Year's Party.

With putting up decorations, baking, cooking and wrapping you want to look your best and not exhausted.

Here are my favorite go-to products:



Christmas Party


-  Start with a good foundation to even the skin tone, cover any redness and give that flawless complexion.
- Add a nice smoky eye, followed by a little Glitter eyeshadow in the inner corners of the eyes - to give the eyes a great POP!
- Use liquid eye liner for a bold look.
- If you feel like having a more dramatic look, add some false lashes.
-  Use a lengthening mascara to open the eyes and give a wide-eyed look.
-  Apply a light pink blush, some mattifying translucent powder and a lip gloss.
-  Finish off with a makeup setting spray and add some glitter to nails.



I like to be a little more dramatic for Christmas parties, I do think the eyes should be the focus - which is why I chose to use a light blush and lip gloss.

If you know me, you know I like some sparkle ;)


Family Get-Together

-  Start with a good foundation to even the skin tone and cover any redness.
- Apply a nude shadow, favorite eyeliner and mascara.
- Apply a light pink blush, mattifying translucent powder.
- Finish with lip balm.



This one is a little more casual.
I'm usually more casual for family get-togethers, I put on a nice shirt and dress pants but keep my makeup more low key.



New Year's Eve Party


-  Start with a good foundation to even the skin tone, cover any redness and give that flawless complexion.
- Add a nice nude eye, followed by a little Glitter eyeshadow in the inner corners of the eyes - to give the eyes a great POP!
- Use liquid eye liner for a bold look. Line eyes with some glitter eye liner. 
- If you feel like having a more dramatic look, add some false lashes.
-  Use a lengthening mascara to open the eyes and give a wide-eyed look.
-  Apply a bronzer for contour, add a shimmery pink blush to cheekbones and  some mattifying translucent powder.
-  Finish off with a makeup setting spray and add some glitter to nails.
- If you would like, you can also add a nice red lip, otherwise a light nude or pink will work well. 



If I'm going to a New Year's Party, I want to shine. The fireworks, champagne and great company. What is a better way to welcome in the new year!


I hope you found these tips useful!
