Deck your face for the holidays! Fa la la la la la la la la! Whether you are a wallflower, or the lady dancing on the table at your holiday party, here are some customized makeup looks just for you!
You never want to be over-looked at a party – even if you tend to lean more toward a natural look. Kinda like this beauty right here….
“The Natural Beauty”

Here are a few, affordable cosmetics I picked for you, for you more natural beauties out there, to get the Jessica Biel’esk look!
Add some drama by sculpting your brow. Try Maybelline NY (color match to your brow).
Next, naturally darken your lips! Try out Color Sensational The Buffs Lip, also by Maybelline. I recommend the color “Espresso Exposed” for your holiday party! Remember, rich colors look impactful, and appropriate!
Lastly, while keeping it clean, simple, and classy, don’t forget to give yourself an enhancing glow! Try out Dream Wonder Powder by Maybelline in “Coconut.”
“The Dancing Queen”
Here is a snap of the Dancing Queen herself…. I’m really loving Miss Julianne’s Grammy-glam look from a few years back for some 2014 holiday makeup inspiration! It’s totally fine to take inspo from the past – gorge always looks gorge – right?!

This Past week, I worked some hair and makeup magic for Julianne and Derek Hough’s mom, Marriann (blonde on the right), as well as Mark Ballas’s mom, Shirley (brunette on left), for the show Dancing with the Stars! Talk about real life dancing queens!

Here are a few my top choices to pull off your inner dancing diva this Holiday season! One of my absolute favorite colors trending in makeup this season is a gorgeous plum hue! I just think it’s Plum Perfect!
Check out this eye/cheek duo from Clinique The Nutcracker Act 1 Compact
Smoke-out your eyes with this palette using the Black on your top and bottom lash line, and then blend in the purple and pink for your smoky vixen eye! Two of the hottest colors this season! To glam it up even more, check out MAC cosmetics Glitter Mix Pigment.
I used this on a bridesmaid a few weeks ago for her eye makeup, and then added a little to her lips! How much more sparkly and festive does it get?
You CANNOT leave the house with your nails undone! Check out the Birthstone Collection by Julep. This is a perfect gift idea too! 😉
Last, but not least, put on your lashes and smile BIG for your holiday night out… I suggest these two products just for that!
Now, you’re qualified to get a kiss – even if you’re not standing under the mistletoe!
