The holidays are just around the corner and I am geared up with my cherished beauty products and accessories! I love bold, winter hues and glamorous glittering accessories. My Jimmy Choo clutch and Kate Spade New York earrings are the perfect accessories for night out to see Ballet West’s The Nutcracker. Also, I found a similar Jimmy Choo clutch ON SALE for 33% off here! I paired my glitzy accessories with an on trend pair of burgundy heels from Bella Vita.

As for my holiday beauty look, I like to keep my beauty look natural and glowing, however, for the holidays I love adding standout lashes and lips!

Get The Look:

For my eyes, I start with a basic sweep of NARS Madrague over my lids and brown bone, I like to keep my eyeshadow simple so the focus is on my lashes. Next I apply MAC Liquid Liner along my lash line, extending it out a bit past my eyes. I then curl my lashes, add a light sweep of Dior DIOR SHOW Black Out Mascara (a little goes a long way). Then I finish with Ardell Glamour lashes in 102. Ardell lashes won InStyle’s 2016 Best Beauty Buys and are extremely affordable! Almost all of their faux lashes cost under $5!

To get natural, breathable and glowing skin, I start by prepping my skin with Colorescience Skin Bronzing Face Primer with SPF 20. Next I lightly apply GloMinerals Glo Pressed Base and finish with a light sweep of GloMinerals Glo Matte Finishing Powder. I have been using this combination on my skin for years and they are the only products that look lovely and airbrushed on my sensitive/acne prone skin! A little bit of Charlotte Tilbury Mini Miracle Concealer under my eyes makes my aging eyes look bright and fresh.

On my lips, I love, love, LOVE standout lip color! For this holiday beauty look, I applied Stila ‘Lush Lips Water Plumping Primer’ to keep my lips smooth and plump. The primer also helps keep lipstick on all day. I then lined my lips with a MAC Lip Pencil in Burgundy and finished with YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lip Color in Prune Avenue. It’s an easy lip that will definitely turn heads!

The final touch of my holiday beauty routine is NARS Laguna Bronzer along my cheekbones and ‘Satellite of Love’ NARS Highlighting Blush on top. Voila! Gorgeous, airbrushed and glowing skin!

Have a lovely day,
