12 Days of Christmas: Day 4 | 2017 | How to SLEIGH the Holidays

So far with my 12 Days of Christmas posts, I have given you some gift ideas for guys and girls, as well as ways to give back during the season!

Now, it’s time to learn how to “sleigh” the holidays. If you’re a beauty lover, there is nothing more exciting than holiday makeup, hair, and fashion. Everything is so festive and bright! But it isn’t always the easiest to know where to begin with holiday beauty.

Here are a few staples to help you “sleigh” this holiday season!

Makeup

Red Lips

This is everyone’s go-to holiday makeup look. Whether your eye makeup is super simple or dramatic, a red lip makes a perfect pairing to get into the holiday spirit.

Try these:

Anastasia Beverly Hills

Colourpop

Shimmer Shadows

Sparkling gold or silver eye shadows make for amazing holiday looks. Nothing says “christmas” like glitter and shimmer. If dramatic eye looks are your thing you will love this festive look!

Try these:

The Body Shop

Colourpop

Sparkle Highlight

Highlighters have become a must-have in every beauty lover’s makeup collection. Everyone has a different taste of whether they like slight reflective ones, super wet looking ones, or chunky glitter ones. But no matter your taste the extra glow completely ties together a holiday look.

Try these: 

Becca x Jaclyn Hill

Nicole Guerriero

Youtuber Jordan Lipscombe recently published a video titled Classic Holiday Makeup Look that pulls all of these things together, creating the perfect holiday look!

Hair

I’m going to be honest, I am not the best at coming up with my own hair styles, or even recreating very elaborate looks. Because of this I’m often on the hunt for “easy” hair looks or hacks that will make my hair-styling much more simple. Instead of even attempting to create my own looks I’ve been using this article, Lazy Girl Hair Hacks for Special Occasions, from the Ogle School for cosmetology and esthetics.

They give various options from a fancy french twist to relaxed beach waves, and every option is made to be super easy to recreate. This has been my holy grail go-to for awhile and it will remain what I turn to all throughout the holidays!

Fashion

Sweaters

Honestly big, comfy sweaters are a must-have for the holiday season! They can be dressed up or dressed down and made perfect for every occasion.

Try these:

Forever21

Sequins

On the complete opposite side of a cozy sweater–sequins and glitter! Sequined shirts, leggings, or dresses are perfect for a fancy Christmas dinner and definitely for New Years Eve. Nothing is more festive than some pretty, glowing sparkles!

You may be a lover of all things beauty but sometimes it’s really hard to find the perfect things to make a gorgeous holiday look. I hope that these few ideas inspired you to “sleigh” the holidays this year!

Happy Sleighing everyone!
