The holiday season is an amazing time of the year spent with friends and loved ones. It is also an excuse to get glammed-up for all of the holiday parties and festivities during this season. Erline Louigene, freelance makeup artist and beauty influencer of InnerBeautyOut, shares her favorite holiday beauty must-haves that will help you feel and look your absolute best for any holiday event.
This moisturizer is great all year round but is especially hydrating during these cold holiday months. This crème is great across all skin types and multi-functional. Embryolisse is an industry favorite that is not only used as a moisturizer but a make-up primer too. Using this nourishing moisturizer before your foundation will not only help it glide on effortlessly but will keep your finished make-up look from appearing cakey.
Now if you have been on the “Ebony Bronze” bronzer by Covergirl bandwagon as a contour, you will certainly love this. If you prefer a matte contour, the Inglot pressed powder is what you need in your makeup arsenal. Its an awesome finishing powder for my deeper melanin beauties as well.
- Kett Sett Pressed Powder - $22
Kett is quickly becoming an industry favorite. This translucent pressed powder can be used on any skin tone and is color-adaptable. That means it will not change your foundation color nor will it make you look dry or ashy. This pressed powder will also set your foundation without being patchy. The best part is that it comes in a compact so you can pop this in your clutch and remain flawless all day and night.
No holiday glam is complete without the perfect red lip. These NYX liquid lipsticks are highly pigmented, matte and long lasting. Pair a red lip with a plum or brown liner for a fail proof ombre lip.
This is an awesome multi-functional illuminator. The halo powder can be used as shadow on the eyes, added to foundation for luminosity or can be applied to the body for a beautiful glow. “Heat” halo powder offers the right balance of shimmer and glitter that is not overbearing but packs a vibrant color pay-off that compliments all beauties of color.
6. AKS LUXE Mink Lashes - $34.99
A look is not quite complete without the right lashes or falsies. If you’re adventurous and want a natural pair of lashes that compliment your very own with a little flare, AKS Luxe mink lashes in the style “Virgo” delivers just that.
7. Jordana Best Lash Extreme - $3.99
If you aren't much of a false lash person, layer one of my favorite affordable mascaras for standout lashes.
