I love wearing makeup but I simply do not have the time to apply it. So I love to opt for a simple minimal but glamorous look especially for the holidays. After a long night out makeup doesn’t always look as pretty as when you first applied it . And if you forget to touch it up of if you’re simply too busy then you can look like a hot mess before the clock strikes midnight.
So in order to avoid looking like a racoon I keep my makeup light and effortless. So for the holidays I chose a minimal look to get a little more glamorous yet polished.
I love to play up my lips because they’re my favorite facial feature. And it’s super easy to quickly apply some lip gloss on the go even when you don’t have a mirror. First I applied Mary Kay® True Dimensions™ Lipstick in Natural Beauté; a lovely neutral color that is incredibly flattering. To add a bit more nighttime glamour I layered the lipstick with Mary Kay® NouriShine Plus® Lip Gloss in Café Au Lait (Non-Shimmer).
For a healthy looking glow, I dusted my entire face (lightly) with Mary Kay® Mineral Bronzing Powder in Desert Sun then added Mary Kay® Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush on my cheeks and set it with Mary Kay® Translucent Loose Powder.
I’m not a huge wearer of eyeshadow so I lightly lined my top lids with Mary Kay® Eyeliner in Black Noir to open my eyes up a bit. Finally I set my holiday makeup look with Mary Kay® Makeup Finishing Spray.
I felt glam but not overdone. I really enjoyed the True Dimensions Lipstick, it felt great on my lips and had a nice shine to it. My lips get dry especially in the winter so I need a moisturizing lipstick in my beauty routine. My second favorite item was the lip gloss because it has a great high shine and looks fantastic over lipstick. The colors were very flattering and work well for a minimal makeup look since they’re not overpowering on the face. I found the quality of the makeup to be excellent, all items applied easily and did not get “cakey” on my face. I cannot wait to wear this look again!
