Holiday Beauty Favorites

December 7, 2017

Let the festive season begin! There is so much to be excited about around the holidays. All of the amazing parties, friends and family to catch up with, and many reasons to celebrate and be thankful.
If your friends and family are anything like mine, there are going to be a lot of pictures being taken. I like to amp it up during the holidays mostly for the multiple photograph reason, and mostly because it's also just really fun!

I really enjoy focusing on the eyes, since there is a lot of eating and drinking going on, it can be hard to pick a long-lasting lip (more on that later). I love going for a glittery eye shadow, and cream can be the best because it is really quick, lasts forever, and gives more of a wet look. My favorite is Laura Mercier's Caviar Stick in Moonlight. It's a really shimmery taupe color that can be sheered out or built up. Regardless, it's really flattering and super pretty on everyone. I also go for a mild/moderate cat eye. My favorite liquid liner is Stila's Stay All Day Liquid Liner in Black. This stuff is as black as it gets and really stays on no matter what. My favorite for giving the eyes some definition.I'm not a huge false lash fan, but I feel like Maybelline's Lash Sensational mascara gives you as close as you can get to falsies without actually having to use them.

I really do my face no differently than any other day, but an addition I love to make is the MAC Strobe Cream. It adds an extra layer of moisture (an essential for dry skin) and adds a beautiful lit-from-within glow. It really jumps amps up the skin and glow without looking super greasy.

Now to the lips, as promised earlier, this can be really tough! Since I enjoy focusing on the eyes, I really don't like to go too bold with the lips, but to add some long-lasting color, I love bareMineral's Gen Nude Liquid Lipsticks in Boss and Infamous . They are very moisturizing for a liquid lipstick and although they aren't as bulletproof as a classic LL, they leave behind a really pretty stain that lasts forever. Another option, which may be a bit unpopular, is LipSense. I know I know, those parties can be a little annoying, but hear me out: I went to one, got a very neutral color (First Love) and trust me, that stuff doesn't go ANYWHERE once you put it on, and it wears really well too without getting dry or crumbly. It's definitely an option if that is something that interests you.
