Holiday Beauty!

Here’s your guide to Holiday Beauty in six easy steps! Be sexy, bold and daring during the festive season- give yourself a glam night every night! (Click through for inspiration!)

  • Lips: Go for the bold lip in the perfect holiday red, plums and berries. Add some gold to your lips with a bit of powdered bronzer. Dap a fingertip of gold over your lip gloss to add a shimmery texture. Remember you can give yourself a very bold lip with these colors, a slight stain or mix them for the perfect spiced lip!
  • Scent: Go for musk, tuberose, sandalwood and roses! Spray a bit into your outfit as you’re getting ready to go out and then add the scent behind your ears, in front of your elbows, on your wrists. Adding perfume unto warm areas of your body will make the scent spread and intensify!
  • Eyes: Drama and Glam! Go for a bold colors like burgundies, bordeauxs and bronze. Do deep and soft neutrals along with golds too to create smokey eyes… Always start with bold brows, then go for eyeliner and lashes. Check out the slide for inspiration on a holiday smokey in jewel-tone and neutral color!
  • Hair: Gold in the way to go for Holiday, specially for hair! Its not about having golden hair but letting your hair shine like gold. Try a hair oil or a super shine hair spray that will leave your hair soft. Go for tangle free waves full of volume and even add some gold pomade for a shimmery touch!
  • Glowing Skin: Have your hair glow and your skin too! Start with a brightening primer so that you’re skin is luminous from the start. Go for a shimmery bronzer to contour and define your face. Swipe some highlighter unto your cheek bones and complete with a hint of pink or coral for a runway inspired flush!
  • Nails: Nude nails are a great way to balance out a bold lip! But the trend for holiday in glowing… Also consider trying a bold red on your tips or golden shimmers!
