Get That Holiday Glow Going!

The festivities have begun, making it the perfect time of year to add a little more glam to your everyday look; add a little more sparkle to your eyeshadow, perhaps add a bold red lip, the choices are endless to help you achieve that perfect holiday glow.

The first step to achieving the holiday glow is skin prep. With the colder temperature outside our skin can get dry, so we must exfoliate first then put a on healthy dose of a hydrating moisturizer. Next step is your make-up application and Cali girls love a dewy make up look that screams health and vibrancy. Jane Iredale Glow time Pro BB cream SPF 25 uses mineral technology in its purest form.  Not only does it give you a radiant glow, the bonus is it doesn’t block pores.

The holiday season means social gatherings, late nights and a little more indulgence, which can lead to waking up with puffy eyes. Our favorite remedy to de-puff is Tula skincare Rose Glow Get It Cooling Brightening Eye Balm. Tula skincare is best known for their use of probiotics in their formulas. Follow up with a little sprinkle of a gold eyeshadow like Urban Decay 24/7 Gold.

Now it’s time for the bold red lip. Look like you’re fresh off the catwalk with the super hydrating formula Too Faced Lady Bold Cream Lipstick –  it will literally make your make up come to life.

Finish with a healthy dose of Violet Malibu Hairspray to keep our holiday hair in place no matter how much fun we are having.
