BEAUTY BAR: Holidaze

‘Tis the season to be jolly, am I right? Finally completing finals (no pun intended) is probably one of the best feelings after working so hard (or partying hard) all semester long. Now it’s the time of year to focus on yourself and look back on what you’ve accomplished and set goals for the upcoming year. With all this newfound time to relax your mind and body, your makeup routine should be simple.

One of the popular trends that always resurfaces around the holiday season is the classic red or burgundy lip color. But in this Fashionista’s situation you’d rather not because well, you’re busy sipping on dirty chai’s, catching up with friends and family and you simply can’t be bothered worrying about smudging your lipstick. That is where the rose lip comes to the rescue. This color is perfect for any occasion because of it’s neutrality. The color can be worn as a lipstick or gloss, whichever you feel more comfortable with. Pair this with the perfect gold or white shimmer on the eyes and this is sure to turn some heads.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To complete this look, you need a black mascara of your choice, a bronzer and a solid cover-up to take care of those all-night designer bags you’ve formed over the semester. Make sure to pat on some moisturizer or oil for some extra defense during these chilly months–although this global warming has sure made itself known these past few weeks–but, a little extra glow never hurt!
