When it comes to getting ready for the holiday parties and events, it’s time to take a bunch of things into consideration. From gifts to food, to parties, and outfits, there are a lot of things to plan and to organize! You might think that you will be dancing into the late hours as there will be a lot of festive parties and celebrations to enjoy. Thinking of your beauty routine will make a difference to how you feel as well as how you look.
So here are some holiday beauty hacks to see you through from Thanksgiving right through New Years Eve…
Sweat-proof your foundation
If you want to have your skin looking flawless and dewy over the festive period, then having a high-coverage foundation to help to create something long lasting for your party look is key. You could choose a foundation that is long lasting (the NARS range have some long lasting ones). Once foundation is applied, it is a good idea to top the foundation with a dusting of powder, and then you will be good to go.
Try red lips
One of the top tips for a festive party is something that always includes having some red lipstick. Plus, did you know that Elizabeth Arden First provided red lipstick for women marching for the vote in 1912. If that doesn’t inspired you to be bold, I don’t know what will! Bold red lips for Christmas are a must. If you can find a lip stain, then it means that it will last for a long time. It shouldn’t wipe off or smear all over your face. Don’t go too bold with the rest of your face if you’re going bold with lipstick. Some simple eyeliner and mascara could be just enough.
Prep your face
You need to make sure that you are priming your skin and getting it in good condition for all of the festivities and plus it can be a treat to do. Making sure that you exfoliate your skin is something that can help any dry or flaky skin or any breakouts of blemishes. Salicylic acid is something that is really gentle on your skin, but still really effective for brightening skin and removing some dark spots. Be sure to speak with a medical doctor to make sure this is right for your skin. If you have any skin that you’re not happy with, then it could be a good idea to look into something like medical aesthetic services to improve an area that you are unhappy with. But there are a lot of things that you can do to prep your skin.
Eyebrows on fleek
All makeup on your face is going to be pointless unless the look is completed with some stunning brows that frame your face. Whatever you choose to do with your brows, one thing to do is to avoid using something that is too dark, otherwise it can be too strong on your face and even leave you looking quite angry. Look for a good brow product that helps them stay in place with a tinted brow gel, like Anastasia Beverly Hills one. The important thing with brows is to remember that eyebrows are sisters and not twins; they don’t need to be identical.
Remember perfection is the enemy of progress and even sometimes self esteem. No one in the world is photoshop perfect! We are all beautiful and so unique in our own ways. Enjoy these makeup hacks as a way to pamper yourself and get ready for fun times with family and friends!
