How to: Slay the Holidays

by Abby McIntosh

Overeating, re-gifting, your aunt who asks too many questions…the holidays can be a lot to handle. As the holiday season inches nearer, everything can start to seem like a hectic blur. While we can’t make the holidays completely stress-free, we can make sure that you’re guaranteed to slay every last holiday party. If Mariah Carey and spiked cider are in your future (and maybe even a lil mistletoe), then makeup that stays put and stays cute is a must. A comfortable, long-wearing base and twinkling, golden eyes will keep your holiday spirit alive well into the A.M. Here to show you how to slay your way through the holidays with style and ease is our girl Morgan.

The first step is a complexion that can make it through a million photos. Start by applying Blur Stick all over your face to smooth pores and prime your skin. Follow up by giving your Blur Liquid Matte Foundation a shake and blending it into your face until you’ve achieved your desired level of coverage. Once your base is done, it’s time to get your glow. Dab Holographic Stick in Mars along your cheekbones and let the light-catching twilight pearls take care of the rest. To take your highlight to the next level and nail a perfect flush in one step, layer Rose Gold from the Glitter Glaze Quad on top. If you want your eyes to give xmas lights a run for their money, use your pinky to apply Gold from the Glitter Glaze Quad in the inner corner of your eyes and right beneath your outer lash line — keep building the color until you’re satisfied. Now, onto the finishing touches! Swipe on Lip Color in Low Key for a natural-looking lip that will stay moisturized and comfortable while you party hop. For a fun surprise, dab Bronze from the Glitter Glaze Quad on top of your Lip Color, right at the center of your lips. Lock in the festive vibes with a few spritzes of Blur Spray and throw on a coat (or two or three) of Ubame Mascara for ultra-dimensional, smudge-free lashes. Have fun and slay away!
