Us social butterflies are already booking our holiday calendar months in advance. There’s this office party, and that fabulous store event, and of course you have to make it home at some point…and with some many holiday events to attend, you have to look your best 24/7. One way to make sure this is fool proof is to make sure your holiday bag is essential your holiday makeup emergency kit. With these five essentials, your makeup with never go askew and you’ll always put your best face forward.
1. All Over Color Stick – This babies are life savers when your face is lacking that extra glow. The sheer illuminizer can be used on eyes, cheeks, and lips which adds the perfect hint of color and sheen, bringing your face alive with just one tiny product. We are all about multi-use products that save space and money. (e.l.f. Essentials All Over Color Stick $1)
2. A Hydrating Lip Color – Need to change your look as you holiday party hop? Switch your lip color from party to party. Start off the evening with a nude lip with just a little bit of gloss. As the night progresses, put on a hydrating lip color that lasts long and won’t make your lips look chapped in the two hour span you have it on. Go for a bright or deep color to really add a pow to your look and change it up. Our favorite is Giorgio Armani in Rouge Ecstacy.
3. Travel Friendly Fragrance – A tiny bottle of your signature scent always comes in handy. It’s the little “freshen up” you need as you go from party to party. Use a roll-on on pulse points for a sneak application. Luckily, our favorite scent comes in just that form. Try Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb.
4. Oral Hygeine Necessities – This is a major life saver when you took a bite of your favorite hor d’eouvres but got something stuck in your teeth. Bring a tin of mini mints (Altoids are the best!), Colgate Wisps, or floss to keep breath fresh and teeth junk free.
