Holiday Beauty Essentials & What You Need To Know

Holiday Beauty Essentials - Complexions SpaTis’ the season of fun and festive holiday makeup! Whether you’re hosting or attending your company’s festive get-together, the perfect red lip, bold wing liner and fluffy lashes are essential to creating a iconic holiday makeup look. Here are a few of my holiday faves!

Kevyn Aucoin’s The Molten Matte Lip Color

A long wearing matte liquid lipstick formulated with Camellia oil and Vitamin E to nourish the lips to feel soft, smooth, and comfortable! If you are going for a classic matte holiday red I would recommend giving the shade “Julia” a try!

Pro Tip: Start your makeup with your favorite lip mask! Let your lips mask until you’re ready to apply your lipstick. This will help add a boost of hydration to the lips and will help you achieve a smooth lipstick application.

Luk Lip Nourish Lipstick in Cherry Plum

Not into a bold lip and prefer more of a medium/sheer finish? This nourishing deep berry lip is perfect for you! Formulated with avocado oil & cocoa butter this creamy lipstick will give you the perfect hydrated pout all night long.

Pro Tip: Glide Cherry Plum over the lips for a medium coverage or dab a little on the center of the lip to create a sheer wash of color.

Lilly Lashes in style Miami

Amp up your natural makeup with a bold glamour lash! These lightweight  3D mink lashes add length, volume and seduction to any look.

Pro Tip: Ask your makeup artist to cut down your lashes to fit your eye shape when purchasing. This will make it easier to apply the lashes throughout the season.

Able Liquid Liner

Winged eyeliner doesn’t have to be scary anymore! Create the perfect wing with Able Cosmetics Cat Eye 101 liner; just line, place, and trace to achieve the perfect wing for your holiday party!

Pro Tip: Apply liquid liner before your foundation/concealer! If you accidentally smudge or your wing isn’t as sharp as you would like it to be you can easily fix it with a little makeup remover.

Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Liquid Lighting Highlighter

This gel-cream highlighter illuminates for a lit-from-within glow! Apply an even layer under your foundation or layer on top of your foundation for the perfect frosty highlight. It’s even formulated with Vitamin E and raspberry leaf to add hydration to the skin!

Pro Tip: Dab a little Liquid Lighting Highlighter on the tops of your shoulders and on the collar bones to add a subtle glow when wearing your favorite Christmas or New Year’s outfit.

Step outside of your comfort zone this holiday season and try something new with your makeup –  after all, makeup is meant to be fun!
