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 any of 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. That's why it's one of my top foundations for sensitive skin.

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. Maybelline 24K Nudes Eyeshadow Palette gives you neutral and metallic shades that take you from day-to-night. This is one of the reasons it's one of my favorite drugstore eyeshadow palettes.

7. Laura Geller INKcredible Waterproof Gel Eyeliner Pencil 5 Pc Full Size Collection has five eyeliner shades that can easily add some extra glam not only to your overall makeup look but to your outfit.

8. Ardell Natural Multipack Wispies to dramatically enhance your eyes even more

9. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara with each coat gives you fuller and more defined lashes.

10. L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Mascara is supposed to make your lashes pop by extending and stretching them from the root.


11. The O.P.I. Infinite Shine nail polish is long-wearing and has several Christmas perfect shades.

12. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure gives you a salon look without having to leave your house. It's chip-resistant and has a gel finish so you have few to no touch-ups between all of your holiday parties. Plus, there are so many beautiful shades to choose from.


13. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick is full coverage, matte, highly pigmented, smear-resistant, and comes in 30 shades. Many of the shades jewel-toned making this a great holiday accessory.

14. MAC Lip Gloss is one you can’t go wrong with all of the many shades and shimmers available.

15. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick is not just a lipstick but a lip moisturizer because of the Vitamin E and Avocado Oil it contains. Plus you get to choose from 82 shades and four different finishes - crème, matte, pearl, and sheer.

Do you have favorite makeup that you use to glam up with during the holidays?
