Okay, you have your outfit, you’ve gotten your accessories, now it’s time to get glam! With these fall and winter must-have beauty items, you’ll be a showstopper at your next holiday party:


As the weather gets chillier, moisturizing your skin is a MUST! No matter if you have oily, normal, or dry skin, you must moisturize. Farsali Rose Gold Elixir is a light weight facial oil that doubles as a foundation primer! It’ll leave your skin soft and make you look as if you’re glowing from within!

GO BOLD! Fall and Winter are the best time of year to play around with your lip colors. Those of you who are more on the timid side, try using a lip stain. You’ll have the feel of a bold lip without all of the commitment. Check out the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colors. They are super comfortable to wear and come in tons of different shades for all skin tones and preferences.

For my beauty junkies out there, who aren’t afraid to rock a bold lip, stop what you’re doing and head over to your local MAC store.

Do yourself a favor and order one right now. The link is below…you're welcome 😉

Eye shadow can be some of the trickiest makeup items to work with. With the massive explosion of eye shadow pallets throughout the past couple of years, sometimes keeping up with the latest trends can be overwhelming. I’m here to make it super simple for you by using three products that will make other’s think you spent forever doing a look, when really, you only took five minutes!

Step 1

Take a matte eye shadow that is close to your skin tone and sweep the color all over your lid.

Step 2

Take another matte shade that is two to three shades deeper than your skin tone and sweep it in your crease. Use a light hand, and gradually build the color to the intensity you like. Also, make sure you blend the edges until the color has no harsh edges.

The Morphe Brushes Bronzed Mocha eye shadow palette has every color you’ll need…and then some!

Step 3

Time for glitter! Take any sparkly eye shadow on your finger and dab the glitter only on your lower lid. Start lightly and build to the intensity that you desire. The Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eye Shadows are perfect for a glam eye shadow look, and they literally take no time at all to apply.

Step 4

Finish up your look with some eyeliner, mascara, falsies (if you’re feeling festive) and a selfie!!

And remember, makeup should not validate how you feel about yourself. It’s a tool that allows you to express yourself, and to enhance what’s already there. Till next time, stay beautiful! xoxo
