6 Makeup Must-Haves for the Holiday Season

Happy After Turkey Day!

Okay, it’s more like a few days after Thanksgiving but my brain is still on turkey overload!  Between visiting family with a clingy toddler, venturing out to do Black Friday shopping, and working off all awesome food I pigged out on, December crept up on me!  That means a lot more festivities to go to (and a lot more yummy food!)  We ladies have to be prepared on the beauty front.  So today I’m bringing you six beauty products you should have on deck to get you through this party season looking your very best! Promise. ;)

 Makeup Products

TooFaced Smoky Eye Palette

I’ve had this set for like ever because it’s my go-to for a fancy night out.  The shadows have a deep and rich pigment that lasts all night without creasing or fading.  With six shades to choose from you can create anything from a shimmery day look to a sultry smoky eye. And oh, the three tutorial cards are super handy too!

CoverGirl LipPerfection in Hot or Seduce

A bold red lip never goes out of style and is perfect for the holidays.  Plus it’s super easy to pull off with the right lipstick, like this one from CoverGirl.  It delivers rich color, has great staying power, and moisturizes your lips while you dance the night away!

Rimmel London Gel Eyeliner*

What better way to rock your red lips than with a great cat eye.  This eyeliner is perfect for that, gliding on smooth with an easy applicator and a waterproof formula that’ll keep it going strong no matter the weather. It’s rich color adds instant drama to your eyes, whether you wear it alone or with a sexy smoky eye.

Avon Super Extend Mascara*

During the holidays we do it big over here and your lashes are no exception. Even if I can’t manage to wear much eye makeup, mascara is a must because it instantly opens up your eyes.  I love this one from Avon because those tiny bristles give you the volume you need with just one coat (and sans clumping).

Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Primer*

I don’t know about you, but my family loves to party.  We’ll start at 5, 6 pm and go on until the wee hours of the morning taking pictures the entire time.  For those all nighters, a primer is a must to keep my entire look from sliding off my face!  This one from Smashbox is awesome because it creates a smooth surface for the rest of my makeup and keeps my skin hydrated.

Neutrogena Makeup Wipes

After a long night of partying hard the last thing you want to do is wash all that makeup off your face.  That’s why these babies are my saving grace!  They do a great job at getting all of my makeup off so I can crawl into bed a whole lot faster!

What are your makeup must haves for the holidays?
