The holidays are upon us and for me, that means switching up some of the products, shades and techniques I use to do my makeup. The holidays are a magical time and I definitely like to look my best because you NEVER KNOW when a camera is going to turn up. I am going to take you through a few products and share some of the things I do to make myself camera ready in this holiday beauty edit.
The holidays are definitely pretty chilly so there will not be too much natural tanning going on. I am actually terrified by the damage that the sun can cause so I don’t actively tan anyway, but I like to give myself a healthy glow for the holidays. Though I am not snow white pale, which is a look that I actually really like, I am still very light with freckles. I think a self tanner is perfect to bring a healthy glow to my skin and I really like the way it looks in pictures.
Way Too Tan is actually a really interesting tanning lotion that can be used to self tan and/or outdoors at the pool or the beach. Way Too Tan Dark Hybrid Tanning Silicone is a premium silicone emulsion that feels amazing and contains multiple natural tanning enhancers for a fast, gorgeous and deep dark tan. It is also packed with anti-aging ingredients, and that is actually very important to me and I think its so smart that a tanning product would include that.
Complexion is very important to me and I think many would say the same thing. Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation is a new foundation I recently reviewed here on the blog. I love that it appears more invisible, is more comfortable, and more natural-looking than it’s predecessor. It was developed specifically for the film and TV industry’s most advanced technology to create a naturally flawless complexion. If the professionals are using it, you know its good.
It comes in 40 different shades so there is truly something for every skin tone. I am going to embed a video that gives you some application tips. It is full of really helpful tips so definitely watch it!
Another key component of holiday beauty is a pop of color on the cheeks and lips. Nothing is more beautiful than a simple eye and a gorgeous bright lip. A very traditional holiday color is red but I also really like the idea of a bright pink shade, or even a mixture of the two. LAQA AND CO has gorgeous shades that are perfect for both the lips and the cheeks and one of their products, The Cheeky Lip is actually meant to be used on both. Mixed Tape and Humble Brag the two shades pictured below and they are a light weight, MATTE, lip and cheek stain that promise to give you an awesome, fresh-faced glow that lasts. The Lip Lube is a balm-like lippie and it is amazing.
Last but not least is fragrance. You are going to be seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Hugs and kisses bring us in close so we should smell our best. Jessica Simpson TEN is a gorgeous new scent that was added to the line to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Jessica Simpson’s business. You may remember my review of one of her fragrances here before and if you don’t you should definitely use my search bar to find it. I love this one just as much as that one.
This fragrance possesses a captivating floral, fruity scent combined with a feminine and sophisticated undertone of vanilla infusion, white chocolate bean accord, sandalwood, tonka bean and driftwood.
The description of it already sounds amazing, but I am telling you that you need to experience it for yourselves.
Now that I have shared my holiday beauty edit with you, tell me a few things that go into yours!
