Holiday Sparkle

As the holidays approach, so do parties! Along with picking out a fabulous dress for the season, it's a perfect time to glam up the face!

I love shimmer and this is the perfect time to add a little extra sparkle. One of my favorites looks is shimmery eyeshadow. Bobbi Brown has some gorgeous shadows.


I like to pair shadow with a glistening lip gloss and for the holidays I really love dressing them up with shimmer. Although, in all honesty, I like to wear gloss every day (usually different shades of pink). I feel bare without it.

Chanel has a very pretty shimmer collection. It's a little pricey (more than my Mac that I love) but it's totally worth it. It lasts a pretty long time too.

Pin Up and Seashell are my favorites.

The holidays are a perfect time to look pretty and feel pretty. Just remember that the holiday party is not the time to experiment. Don't go overboard. You don't want shimmer overload. So if your not that great at applying makeup or don't typically add so much shimmer, do a trial run before you head out to the party. You don't want to show up looking like it's Halloween!

What's your favorite holiday makeup?
