With so many holiday events happening over the next few weeks, it’s imperative to plan your party beauty look STAT.
Considering the craziness that always surrounds the holiday season, I’m opting for a simple, yet adaptable beauty look this year — something that allows me to change my nail polish here, swap a gloss for a matte lipstick there, all while keeping the foundation pretty much the same. The bottom line is I want to look effortlessly put together without the fuss.
To make this happen, it’s best to focus on only the essentials and build from there. Let’s start with my lipstick. I can’t get enough of the color red at the moment. It’s festive, flattering, and apparently makes you more attractive. Nothing goes better with red than skin-enhancing luminizers, which is why this is an obvious necessity. Speaking of skin, a pre-party mask is also a vital part of party prep. A rich, long-lasting fragrance will no doubt help me finish the look and set the mood for the night ahead. Who wouldn’t want to smell delicious even after their last glass of champagne?
SK-II’s Facial Treatment Mask is the one and only party prep mask that will literally change your life. Use this an hour or so before you apply your makeup for an event, and you will look better than ever before. Just trust me, the camera doesn’t lie.
I love a good blood red nail, and Smith & Cult’s Kundalini Hustle is my favorite. It gives you the ultimate French girl look.
Hair perfume is the key to impressing everyone at the party. Sprtiz Byredo’s Gypsy Water Hair Perfume into your locks, and people will be talking all night about how good you smell.
I love Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution lipsticks. They are honestly just a good as Tom Ford. (Shhh!) Try Red Carpet Red to get that classic red lip look everyone lusts after. Oh, and it really, really stays on, so you won’t have to worry about constant reapplication.
Kate Spade’s super cute silver flask is the perfect way to add a little spice to your next boring cocktail function, so sneak this baby in your handbag for a little on-the-go energy.
Nothing goes better with a red lip and perfectly glowing skin than a jet-black cat eye. Get the perfect straight line with my favorite gel liner by Benefit. You’ll look as smashing as Ms. Brigitte Bardot.
