The holidays are here and that means it’s time to take chances with fashion and makeup! You can’t waste studded heels or a beaded dress with boring everyday makeup… you gotta step it up! Because I live for makeup (and the holidays), every late November I go from counter to counter at the department stores then up and down every aisle at the drug and specialty stores and play with every holiday palette and shade like a kid in a candy store. So without further ado, here are my favorites in each category to help you sparkle at your holiday parties this month:
Splurge: Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer – I’ve never been a fan of tinted moisturizers as they go way too shiny on my clients and me, but this one is a game changer with the perfect amount of coverage and most importantly, glow.
Steal: Covergirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation — This natural foundation gives great coverage while feeling like a lightweight mousse that disappears when you put it on (along with your imperfections!), because when you’re rocking a red lip and sequins, you don’t want anyone to notice you’re wearing foundation.
