3 Easy Makeup Looks for the Holidays

Merry Christmas Eve! And happy Monday? I’ve already forgotten what day it is. More eggnog!

I’ve teamed up with one of my best gal pals to bring you 3 Easy Makeup Looks for the Holidays – a light and sparkly daytime look, evening glam, and a bold lip for New Year’s. All of these looks were created by my friend Danielle, a professional makeup artist and photographer. Make sure to check our her Instagram pages here and here.

(Side note – we’ve used false lashes in each look, but they are totally not necessary.)
