The holiday season is the perfect excuse to try that hair and makeup trend you’ve been lusting over on Pinterest all year. Crazy nails, why not? Big hair? Yes please! And obvs the more glitter the better. Here are my picks for fun, festive looks:


Black and gold liner: Umm, obsessed with this look! A different take on the traditional black cat eye, this look is easy. Swipe on a loose gold glitter over the top with a wet brush, or simply dip your brush into a powder gold shadow and recreate effortlessly. Don't forget a few coats of dramatic black mascara.


Oxblood red lips, fulls brows: A twist on the classic red lip, try a deeper, darker oxblood red. Keep the look glam with a full filled in brow, soft eyes, and dewy skin. Perfect to sass up a little black dress, or winter white look. Tip: don’t forget to line your lips, I love doing this look with a lip liner that’s a shade a smidge darker. Liner is essential to keep the lipstick looking vampy not trampy.


The “wavy-straight” hair: This look is the perfect mix of flirty and feisty. Lots of girls get this look with just their flat-iron, but since I am not the best when it comes to hair styling I like to use my no clamp curling wand, then straighten the ends with my flat iron. I like to put a few drops of Rodin’s luxury hair oil in my locks before stylin—this stuff is spendy but so worth it! Whatever method you prefer, don’t forget a spritz of hairspray to finish your look and keep it from getting frizzy while cab hopping to your next destination.
