Holiday Beauty Must Haves

With Christmas right around the corner, my agenda is packed with holiday parties and end of the year events. To survive the party season there are a few holiday beauty must haves to keep close at hand.

Shimmery, festive eye shadows like in the Naked 3 Palette are perfect for this time of year. This palette is great for pumping up a day look for an evening party while not getting overly sparkly. Plus they last all day so they're sure to stay put the entire party.

When I think Christmas I think glowy and shimmery. TheBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer is great to add a lovely helping of highlight to the cheeks. It's a fine line between shimmery and a walking disco and Mary-Lou Manizer toes it expertly. A mauve blush like Revlon's "Wine Not" will give you the perfect rosy look on the cheeks with enough pigmentation to last all night. 

A dark lipstick like MAC's "Captive" is just the thing to add a final seasonal touch to any makeup look this time of year. Lip liners like the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Liner in "Manic" is a must to keep everything in place and lasting through the last piece of pie. Red lips are a given around the holidays, but if you're a red-lip-phob like myself then a deep mauve will do nicely.

To make sure everything looks fresh and lasts a setting spray like the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray is a beauty lover's best friend. A few spritz of this and you're good to go.

What products are your holiday beauty must haves?
