Although I moved away from my hometown of Tulsa Oklahoma when I was only 16, there hasn’t been one Thanksgiving or Christmas that I have missed. Even when I was working in the corporate world at Michael Kors and Chanel, I would save up all my vacation days just so I could face the joys of holiday travel in order to make it home to my family. Even though this year is a little different seeing that I am married, it’s no exception. We are headed to Tulsa for fried turkey, my two crazy nieces and some much needed quiet time that I’ll dedicate to my beauty routine.
When your thanksgiving is spent with family, friends or just you and your better half, make it festive. Paint your nails red. Try a new face mask. Don’t overcomplicate things with a ton of makeup. Simplify. All you need is concealer, a little luminzer, powder and a bright lip.
These are some of my favorite beauty products to get me through Thanksgiving weekend. What are yours?
Tata Harper Cream Blush – The safest and easiest way to add a fresh flush to your face.
Burberry Military Red Nail Polish – Hands down, the best blood red.
Dior Rouge Dior 772 Classic (New) – It’s a matte, blue-toned mauve-pink and so 90s. One of the best lipsticks I’ve tried in years. All of the brand’s new matte shades are actually the bomb. Try them all!
Tata Harper Illuminating Moisturizer – No makeup needed when using this. PS – It’s made with diamond dust.
Dr. Barbara Sturm – Everyone’s buzzing about this Germany-based line. This mask was a game-changer for me.
Christophe Robin Color Fixator Wheat Germ Mask – Another new beauty crush. After one use I could see a massive difference. Full review is here.
Byredo Mojave Ghost Hand Cream – I always have one or two of Byredo’s hand creams in my purse, and this baby is one of my favorites.
Rodin Lavender Body Oil – What can I say. It’s just heaven.
Le Metier de Beaute – I recommended this to a friend today. It’s still my favorite foundation. Two years and counting.
001 Skincare EYECYCLE – Drain Toxins and brighten your eyes. Boom.
Coqui Coqui Beeswax Candle Tabaco – One of the only candles that the whole family can agree on.
