The Best Makeup To Add Wow To Your Holiday Look

Once November first rolls around there are a lot of things I start to look forward to. Cooler weather (notice I said cooler, not colder weather), Thanksgiving, Christmas lights and decorations, NBA Christmas Day games, spending time with the fam. Oh, I can’t forget the many holiday parties.

I’m not really one for parties, but I’ll make an exception for ones during the holidays because they give me the opportunity to dress up and not feel out of place.

Not only do I dress up, but I up my makeup game. I tend to do a fuller coverage look, add a little shimmer here, some sparkle there. Basically, I use makeup products that bring the wow.

You can also bring the wow to your holiday makeup looks this year with these products:


1. Rimmel Stay Matte Primer is good for oily skin giving it a matte base for makeup application.

2. Mary Kay Mineral Powder Foundation gives you an even complexion without clogging your pores.

3. Everyday Minerals Matte Base is another foundation option that gives those with oily skin a matte and shine-free look.

4. Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer naturally covers imperfections that your foundation can’t all while giving you a flawless matte finish.

5. Milani Powder Blush is highly pigmented, goes on smoothly, and blends easily to give your cheeks the perfect holiday glow.

6. ELF Studio High Definition Powder to set your look and mask imperfections for all of those impromptu holiday party pictures.
