What a year we’ve all had! It’s hard to believe we are nearing the end of 2020 (it honestly still feels like we are mid-March). And although we might not be pulling up at some wild parties this year, that shouldn’t be a reason for us not to look 10 out of 10! So whether you’re spending your holidays on the sofa with a tub of Chunky Monkey or with your closest friends and family, take it as an opportunity to show yourself some love and glam up!
Here are our favourite (super easy) ways to ace that holiday glam look:
Hello Bright Eyes
Toss aside the glitter this holiday and stand out with neon eyeshadows! We have been OBSESSED with incorporating brights into our makeup routine - it finally gives us an excuse to venture over to the “untouched” shadows in our palettes.
But how do I not look like a toddler who accidentally found herself in her mom’s makeup bag? The trick is to choose colours that match your skin tone: cool shades (like blues and purples for cool undertones) and warm shades (like oranges and reds for warm undertones). Another hot tip is to top it all off with a generous coat of your blackest mascara. This creates contrast and helps add definition to your eyes!
Clear, Dewy Skin
You know what never goes out of trend? A dewy, healthy glow! If no-makeup makeup is more your thing, this is right down your alley. Apart from piling on highlighters, it is also crucial to have a smooth skin texture.
We recommend our favourite Sugu Spotless Pimple Patches. These Hydrocolloid gel patches keep your spots covered and away from dirty fingers and further irritation. You can wear them over your makeup or to bed. They speed up the healing process and also help reduce scarring (from accidental popping!)
Good news! These amazing little dots are available in your October bellabox.
Read our (bold) lips: a statement lippie can glam up any look. Pair it with a neutral eye or some winged eyeliner and you’re ready to go!
Our pick this holiday? Fenty Beauty’s Mattemoiselle Lipstick in Freckle Fiesta, of course! It’s so important, especially for the holidays, to choose the right formula - we don’t want any crusty lips or mishaps! This petal-soft matte lipstick glides on like a dream and will stay on all night. Its weightless formula is colour-intense and this gorgeous coral shade is flattering on most skin types. It is the ultimate holiday lippie!
We’ve got you covered! You’ll be receiving Fenty Beauty’s Mattemoiselle Lipstick in Freckle Fiesta in your October bellabox.
But above all else, of course, the best look you can put on is a smile! Wishing all our bellas a very, very happy holiday season. Stay safe and have fun! ♥️
