The holidays can be stressful, so your look needs to be effortless and comfortable. Go for a natural glow with flushed cheeks, smoky eyes, and a playful pout. Narrow down your look to just a few key products: concealer, powder, mascara, blush or bronzer, and a great lip color. Keep them in your make up bag along with mirror, polish, and mints. With this you will be able to look gorgeous no matter where you are, in under five minutes.

Now that you have a shopping list for the perfect holiday look, its time for the fun part... SHOPPING. Why spend more than you have to, when COVERGIRL’s Facebook page is filled with great deals and coupons?? Just give them a like to unlock the magic. Happy Holidays!Here are some other hints for keeping yourself healthy and beautiful during the holiday season:
- Give your hair big playful curls with a paddle brush and curling iron.
- If you find a lip balm that really works for you, stock up. The real problem with lip balm isn’t that you don’t have a good one, it’s that you don’t put it on enough or you can’t find one when you need it. Buy one for all the places you may need it, like your office, purse, car, bedside, living room, even in your favorite coat pocket.
- Drinking three liters of h2o a day can start to feel like a punishment. So instead of drinking all of your water, try eating foods with a higher water content. Cucumbers and oranges are a perfect choice. And try to stay away from salty foods like olives.
- Keep your holiday hair in check with a hair spray featuring a micro diffuser. The micro diffuser spray gives a clean shiny finish. A finish so fine you can still get a brush through your hair and yet it has a hold that will last all day.
