It’s hard to believe that the holidays are less than four weeks away! Besides getting together with friends and family, and finishing up that super long shopping list, taking the time to look good often becomes a chore instead of the fun and enjoyable thing it should be. Our brand new social media ambassador, Brittany Sarah, is here to add some inspiration to your holiday beauty line-up with some of her favourites below.
During the holiday season I love to put my best face forward, and this foundation helps me do that. It has a beautiful radiant glow that will give you a fresh dewy complexion. It is my go-to for a perfect medium coverage that still looks glowing and natural!
Highlighter is always a good idea no matter what the season. But especially during the holidays I like to shine. This palette gives you endless colour options for that perfect glow! I like to put this on my cheekbones and on my shoulders and collar bones for that extra holiday party sparkle.
This eyeshadow palette is the perfect combination of matte shades and shimmer shades! You can make so many holiday looks with these colours. There is even a silver glitter metallic shade if you are feeling extra daring.
The thing I love most about holiday glam is the glitter! Tis the season for glitter everywhere. Stila makes it so easy to perfect that glittery smokey eye. This is a liquid glitter so you don’t have to deal with any mess. Just apply on your lids and you are good to go!
Everyone is always looking for that perfect red lip during the holidays. Rihanna and her new makeup line Fenty Beauty has created a universal red that is perfect for every person! It comes in a very long lasting matte formula.
f you are not quite ready for glitter but still want that pop of sparkle on your eyes then this is the product for you! These Crystal Top Coats add the perfect slight glow to your lids. They are so easy to apply over shadows or on their own. You can even use your fingers to apply!
Keeping with the sparkle theme, these new lip glosses from Becca are perfect for the holidays! They are great glosses but add a sparkly almost holographic shine to the lips. They come in many colours but I personally love this peachy nude that has pink glitter throughout. Just adds a little something extra to the lips.
Glitter Hairspray may make you feel like you are back in the 80’s but IGK is bringing it back in the perfect way. This is a glitter spray for your hair that if used sparingly adds the perfect amount of shine and sparkle to your hair without looking over done. Perfect for NYE! Unfortunately, this product is so popular that it’s currently sold out! But make sure to keep checking their site for new stock.
If you don’t normally wear falsies then the holidays are the perfect time to add that extra glam! I love these ones by Velour because you can re-use them (for all of the parties this season!) and they are so fluffy and wispy which is totally on trend!
This is my current favourite fragrance! It is so perfect for winter and the holidays. It combines smoky and woody accords with the subtle sweetness of chestnut to evoke a familiar but forgotten moment—the warmth of a cozy fireplace in midwinter. It smells sexy and elegant and exactly like the holidays!
Unfortunately, far too often the real meaning of the holiday season is lost among the stress and chaos of trying to do it all. So don’t forget to take the time to slow down, relax and pamper yourself with any of the above suggestions this holiday season!
