Holiday Makeup and Hair for 2016!

Baby, it’s cold outside..

20161206_153447

It’s that time of the year when the cold weather apparel comes out and the glitz and glam side of makeup can be seen everywhere. I threw together this look that’s perfect for a daytime holiday party – or you know – going to the grocery store.  With a bit of of a deeper brown in the outer-v of the eye and a darker shade on the lower lash line, this could be taken right in to evening. I also decided to sport the new Gorjana Taner Toggle Lariat from this seasons FabFitFun box! Instead of looping it once, I decided to wear it as a choker. I like it a lot!

My list of products used are as follows:

  1. Aveeno Clear Complexion Moisturizer 
  2. Maybelline Baby Skin Primer 
  3. Loreal Infallible Pro-Glo Foundation 
  4. NYX Cosmetics Dark Circle Concealer 
  5. Maybelline Master Conceal 
  6. ABH Contour Palette
  7. Too Faced Brow Envy Palette 
  8. Lorac Unzipped Cheek Palette 
  9.  MAC Ruby Woo Matte Lipstick 
  10. The Balm – Mary Lou Manizer 
  11. Coty Airspun Translucent Powder 
  12. Morphe 350 Palette (several shades to create the eyelook) 
  13. Butter London Iconoclast Mega Volume Lacquer Mascara (from FabFitFun box and I *love* it!) 
  14. Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray 

In case you’re wondering I curled my hair using my Bed Head Curlipops 1″ Styling Wand. This is only my third time using it and I absolutely love how the curls come out on my short hair. I’d suggest purchasing this wand on Amazon if you’re interested because Ulta’s website currently has it for $29.99 as opposed to Amazon’s $17.99 (when I got it it was just $14.99!)

Also – I got my sweater at Marshalls a couple of years ago. If I remember correctly it was $19.99 and I got it in a 1X. I’ve decided that I don’t have enough of these chunky cozy sweaters in my life and may need to purchase more before the season is up!

I hope you all liked this holiday look! Let me know what your go-to looks are during the holidays including makeup, hair styles and clothing!

FabFitFun – The Winter Box for 2016

Related image

I am absolutely loving this FabFitFun subscription box. The full size products that come in each box are absolutely wonderful. That’s right – no more tiny tubes of shampoo and conditioner just hanging around for months on end. One person couldn’t possibly use the amount of small products I’d get from Sephora Play! and Ipsy (both of which I’ve cancelled). I did enjoy those subscriptions, but I felt like I was throwing away money for shit that I just wasn’t using. With FabFitFun, I can at least give the product a real try. I’m also pretty excited that it’s not all beauty related. Last month’s box was that adorable black travel mug with a cute saying on it: Joy comes in the morning. I actually really like using that cup for work mornings! Anyway – Let’s dive into this months box!
