BEAUTY BAR: Holiday Glam

It’s the holiday season, which means it’s time to make delicious cookies, put up twinkly lights and attend those festive holiday parties. One of my favorite parts of these parties, besides the good food and good company, is getting all glammed up. The same seems to be true for this stylish Fashionista.

This Fashionista starts off her holiday look with a comfortable, yet stylish look that’s perfect for those yuletide gatherings. She starts with a black base for her outfit, consisting of dark skinny jeans and a fitted, scoop-neck top. Next, she layers a neutrally patterned poncho over everything, which gives her look a unique and comfortable edge. Finally, she pairs the outfit with a pair of nude flats and gold jewelry. I love her layered chain necklaces! Her jewelry dresses up the look but also keeps the look simple and stylish.

As great as her outfit is, her makeup is really what makes this Fashionista’s look merry and bright! This Fashionista keeps her foundation and blush subtle while still playing up her natural features, such as her hydrated cheeks and her shapely brows. However, this Fashionista is not afraid to play with color, which she shows through her use of lipstick and eyeliner. To make her look more festive, she wears a bright red lip, which is always a classic beauty staple. She also adds a winged eyeliner, but makes it unique by pairing a traditional black liner with a sparkly gold gel liner. This combination of red lips and glitter eyeliner takes this look from pretty and natural to glamorous and party-ready. This Fashionista is ready to celebrate the holidays in style!

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To recreate this festive holiday look, you need a great red lipstick. Try the “Red-y to Wear” High Impact Lip Colour by Clinique, it has long lasting color and will keep your lips moisturized as you party throughout the night.
