Holy Holiday Hotness! Tis the season with tons of parties. It is no surprise that we all want to look absolutely stunning. With all the shopping and prepping going on, here is everything you need to know to look your best this holiday.
Drum roll please…
This Years Biggest ‘Bad-est’ Hairstyles Are:
Big loose curls- think old Hollywood glam with side swiped bangs. For up-dos try an elegant knotted bun or incorporate a braid into a structured bun. Braids and knots are the big rave this season, don’t be scared to play around with them.
Best Hair Tools:
ghd (good hair day). They were the proud sponsors in making sure the Victoria Secret Bombshells looked perfect while strutting down the runway. Hey if it works for them, then it will work just perfectly fine for me. For a supreme glossy hair check out the techolongically advance ghd air Professional Performance Hairdryer. For this season only, the company is packaging the ghd air Professional Performance Hairdryer and iron together in the wonderland deluxe set… Isn’t it so pretty!

No fail hair dos:
If you have an event where it is crucial to have every single strand of hair in place, bring in the experts. Dry bar is a nation wide hairstylist service that provides blowouts for only $40 ($80 for an up-do). Time to get pampered!
This Years Winter Colors Are:
Red lips are still hotter than ever. But you can tone the red down with more wine inspired hues.
Tis the season to add some glitter to the pallet. Try gold and silver smoky eyes with super plump lashes. Keep in mind, you don’t need do do all of these trends at once (maybe keep it at one at a time for best results-just helping a girl out.)
Try LipSurgence™ by Tarte. These babys are paraben free lip stainers easy to apply and leave a rich natural color. Tarte packed a sample kit of these beauties for $34 (worth $112). It is the perfect size to try all of the LipSurgence™ from deep reds to a few nudes without a big commitment.
Plump them up with Youniques 3D Fiber Lashes. They instantly add length for camera ready vixen eyes. Read my latest review to get even more information about what this amazing product can do.
When in doubt, call for back up. Check out Yelp for makeup artists in your neck of the woods. Sometimes your favorite salons have makeup services as well. I would avoid Sephora and MAC unless you want to wait with the crowds and spend $50 on makeup purchases afterwards.

Last But Not Least…My Secret Weapon:
Aquaphor. I know, not very special but it does wonders for the super dry weather that winter brings. You can buy the product at a drugstore. I dap a little on my lips before going to bed to make them soft and crackle-free lips. I also add a little to my cheek bones to create a natural shine and highlighter when my skin needs extra hydration. Looks like little winter kisses on my skin.
Have a wonderful Holiday Season! Feel free to share some of your all time favorite beauty tips and tricks for the holidays.
