Quick Holiday Beauty Fixes

By AM Northwest Staff

When the holiday season hits, finding a moment for you can be a challenge.  Between shopping, cooking, entertaining and attending all the holiday parties, fitting in your complete beauty routine – including trips to the spa – may not be a reality.  So how can you pare down your regimen, but still look fantastic this holiday season?

Additional Tips:

·      Wear a lightweight skin-brightening lotion that can be worn alone or mixed with foundation

·      If you must get ready in a flash, put on fancy earrings or add a fancy hair clip to add glamour to holiday fashion

·      Red lips are a holiday staple – use a red gloss if you don’t have time to expertly apply lip liner and lipstick

·      Dare to be different by trying on a pair of false eyelashes – look for a set with different length hairs that offer a more natural look

·      If you plan to attend multiple events this holiday season, purchase a multi-use makeup palette that can help you put together multiple looks
