Five Holiday Makeup Must-Haves
1. A light, oil-free moisturizer.
Philosphy’s “Hope in a Jar” is a great example of a hydrating moisturizer to help keep your skin soft and glowing. Wear it in place of heavy foundations to keep your complexion even and your look natural during chilly winter days.
2. Gel eyeliner.
Bobbi Brown’s “Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner” will give you the precision you need for the perfect cat-eye during a night out. This liner is also versatile enough to work for day: you can apply just enough to emphasize your eyes without making it obvious that you’re wearing makeup—for Christmas photos, maybe? Black or dark, dark brown are both no-fail choices, but shimmery grey can also be beautifully subtle.
3. False eyelashes.
The Sephora Collection “Flirt-It Lash Duo” is the perfect addition to your Christmas party dress. False lashes are dramatic and alluring, and the option for full or half strips allows you some flexibility. Don't shy away from them-- they're worth the effort!
4. Shimmer powder.
The days of glitter roller-balls are certainly over, but subtle shimmer can be perfectly festive during the holiday season. Make Up For Ever’s “Diamond Powder” in “Champagne” is just bold enough to pair with a simple cocktail dress, but wouldn’t overpower a more stand-out number, as well.
5. Lip Stain.
Just-bitten lips are always a staple of the colder seasons. Berry shades, especially, manage to look sensual and sweet, and this lip stain by "Tarte" makes them low maintenance and long lasting.
