beauty | Office to Holiday Party Glam



I don't know about you, but my office throws the holiday party right after work on a Thursday...not ideal if you want to get glammed up. So today I teamed up with one of my blogging girlfriends Brooke to bring you our Office to Holiday part glam looks! 


for my office look, I kept it pretty close to my normal everyday makeup minus highlight. pro tip; wait on the highlight until you're doing your party glam, this will help make you look like it took way longer than it did to get you ready!


another pro tip; do your normal foundation routine and set as you would. Bring your setting spray with you to refresh later, but this will save you time as well. 

 Now for party glam, if you want to keep it simple, but look totally put together and party ready-pop on some highlight (spray your brush with some setting spray to really make it up pop), another coat of mascara-blackest black you have, and then a red lip. Classic and the typical holiday look, but I promise it's a classic for a reason. 


I went in with the bronzey shades from the Jaclyn Hill palette to create a more golden smokey eye. Shades used: Silk Creme, MFEO, Queen, SBN, and Enchanted on the inner lower lash line-outer half. I used Beam on the brow bone and inner corner. 


Tamed my wild brows with the It Cosmetics brow pencil, used my friend Samantha's highlighter collar with Ofra. Topped off my lashes with the Push-Up Drama mascara and added the Telescopic to my lower lashes. I finished off the glam look with a red lip and my fave is the Wet & Wild. 



products used;
Loreal Infallible Pro-Glow Powder

brushes;
wet & wild blush brush
It Cosmetics Duel eyeshadow brush
It Cosmetics Duel liner and smudger

EASY Thanksgiving Recipe ROUNDUP!


Layz is a lifestyle I've always lived by (I wore my hair in a top knot 98% of the time in HS and I went to school in the early 2000s before it was like a major thing to do), so here's a post I shared last year, but I feel like you need these yummies in your life...

Holiday Movie Must Watch List & A HUGE Pajama Roundup!


There is something about snuggling on the couch in the light of the Christmas tree and having a great holiday movie on...I think it's one of my fave parts of the holidays hands down. It's something you can do any night, with friends/family or alone, and it will leave you feeling in the spirit long after the credits roll! Here are some of the movies I HAVE to watch each year....


The Santa Clause 1-3; fun fact-first one is my favorite movie OF ALL TIME.
Christmas Vacation
Elf
The Grinch
Rudolph
Christmas Every Day; "Make a basket, Billy!"; may or may not have already watched this gem!
It's A Wonderful Life; tradition alert-we save this for Christmas Eve!
 Prep & Landing and Prep & Landing Naughty vs Nice
Olaf's Frozen Adventure
Christmas with the Kranks; fun fact-I watch this movie about 12 times a year. Clearly Tim Allen is my favorite actor
