7 Beauty Products That Add Instant Holiday Vibes to Your Look
With Thanksgiving behind us, it’s now officially time to turn our attention to holiday-friendly, party-ready beauty looks. All you need is a pop of glitz or a dusting of glitter to bring on major holiday vibes. Read on for seven ways to instantly elevate your look for all your end-of-year fun. (Photo via Getty)
Add a gleaming topcoat to your favorite lipstick. Swipe on an iridescent lippie like Urban Decay Vice Special Effects Long-Lasting Water-Resistant Lip Topcoat ($18) to turn a traditional hue into one that’s ready to party.
Rock an extra strong brow. To make your brow game even bolder, add a subtle highlight with a shimmering brow gel. Brush on a product like Sephora Collection Brow Highlighting Gel ($12) in any of the four flattering shades and prepare to dazzle.
Get glossy with your look. Highlighter is great and all, but get your shine from a trendy gloss this year instead. Pat on MILK Makeup Face Gloss ($20) sparingly — but strategically — on the high points of your face to add a fresh spin to your seasonal routine.
Float your eyeliner. Ditch that cat eye for the oh-so-trendy floating eyeliner look. You can create it using a bold color or, if you’re after something more subtle, trace your crease with a bronzy pearl product like Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour ($29) in Cocoa.
Upgrade a basic mani. Even if you gave yourself a DIY mani at home, adding simple nail art makes it look like you just left the salon. Dip the tip of a bobby pin into a lustrous nail polish like Kendra Scott Gold Metallic Nail Lacquer ($16), and add a tiny dot of polish centered right in front of your cuticle.
Flutter extra flirty lashes. The holidays call for extra lengthy, lush lashes, so regular falsies just won’t cut it. Instead of applying a set of strips, layer a few e.l.f. Individual False Lashes ($2) on the outer corners of your eyes.
Sport shimmery, silver shadow. Glimmering silver eyeshadow is having a moment (just ask Halston Sage and Yara Shahidi), so embrace it fully this time of year. Tap Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24HR Eyeshadow ($6) in Too Cool onto your lids for instant ice queen status.
