For fun today I thought I'd share my top three make up fixes that may help you out for your upcoming New Years Eve parties. These are a few fail-safe items that I reach for when I need to smarten and sparkle myself up for an evening on the town! All with a festive edge.
My first quick pick me and perk me up is for the complexion and is the theBalm Mary Lou Manizer. I bought this a few months back and it's really a wise little investment. As a highlighter it gives you instant sparkle and shine, it is quite a powerful little item so I would advise dusting it off on the back of the hand before applying to avoid glitter over kill on the cheek bones. If you get the balance right though then this never fails to give you the glow you desire. It's also a real beauty for brightening up the eyes. Apply a little to the corners for a brightening and shimmering effect.
The holiday party season for me is all about the perfect red lip and whilst I've tried and do love many a red lip product my all time favourite, can't go wrong red has to be Macs Ruby Woo. It's just a classic, bold red with a matte finish and if I'm not sure what to reach for but want to make a statement then this is always the lipstick I choose. Perfect for this time of year especially, but worth investing in as it'll see you well year round too.
My third and final quick fix item for sparkling yourself up during party season is the Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Polish in Red Zin. This is the perfect red, party colour, is a great match for the Ruby Woo lips and is pretty easy to apply as far as red varnish goes. I know that I can use this even if I'm a bit pushed for time and still get a good effect that will go well with all of my holiday seasonal outfits!
What are your holiday season make-up must haves? Will you be giving any of these a go?
