Appropriate for the Holidays Look

At this time of the year, many of us are celebrating various holidays. This often means that we will have family or work functions to attend and thus we must do our makeup in an appropriate manner, lest our bosses/grandmothers/mothers-in-law disapprove. When one is a makeup junkie, one might be tempted to crack out their brightest green and red shadows and glue snowflake cutouts or jingle-balls to their face to get themselves in a festive mood. Unfortunately, when one is supposedly a functional adult member of society, these types of looks just don't fly at one's great grandmother's dinner table or husband's office party. Here is my take on a makeup look that one can wear for a holiday function without anybody questioning their sanity!

FACE: MAC Prep and Prime, MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NC15, MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder in NC15.

CHEEKS: Too Faced Pink Leopard Bronzing Powder.

BROWS: MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud.

LIPS: Lise Watier Festive Gloss.

EYES: Base: UDPP, MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre.
Eyeshadows: Lise Watier Festive Palette trio in Soleil.
Eyeliners: UD 24/7 Liner in Baked, UD Perversion, Maybelline Liquid Black Eyeliner.
Mascara: Lise Watier 24 Hours Glam.
