Today I’m sharing some of my fave beauty items for surviving the holiday party season.
During this busy season visits with family and friends and events quickly fill up our calendars and I can’t be the only one who is scrambling with how to keep my wits about me.
Starting with basic makeup in the morning and amplifying either my eyes or lips will let you go from day to night makeup with ease and also cut down prep time in between. Here are some of the items I am currently loving that seamlessly take me from day to night.
My Fave Beauty Items for Surviving the Holiday Party Season
I always make sure I use an amazing moisturizer during the winter. Not only does it keep my skin moisturized but it helps my makeup look better. This Vitamin C Glow-Boosting Moisturizer from The Body Shop tackles winter skin woes and helps bring your best skin forward.
A primer helps to give your makeup a good canvas to sit on. I am currently using–and loving–the Maybelline New York Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer which helps take care of the pores on my t-zone so that the makeup doesn’t sit in them.
I splurge on certain beauty items and one that I don’t skimp on is a good powder/foundation combo. This Mac Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation is good quality, compact and allows mess-free application compared to its liquid competition. Plus you can easily put it into a clutch for on the go touch-ups.
I have a very pale complexion and even though I love how a tan looks on my skin I choose to use a matte bronzer instead. This Rimmel London Natural Bronzer Waterproof Bronzing Powder in Sun Bronze is one I have in my makeup bag and it’s in use all year long. When I do get some sun I use this to even out my complexion. Totally worth the $6
If you are looking into going a little bit more glam with your lips this 2-in-1 jane iredale Lip Fixation Lip Stain/Gloss gives you rich, long-lasting colour but also leaves your lips super soft and supple thanks to the vitamin E and avocado oil within.
Going from day to night is easy with Rimmel London Magnif’eyes Shadow Palette in London Nudes Calling as the warm blush tones can be easily layered to make them look as simple or intense as you want.
I love the drama of liquid eyeliner for night time but have some real issues getting it to look good. This Maybelline New York Curvitude Liners angled brush make it so I can easily swipe across and not look like my 2-year-old did my makeup.
This Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Color in ‘Gilty Party” lasts for almost a week through vigorous ‘momming’ and is such a pretty colour for the holidays.
