5 Ways to Holiday-Proof Your Makeup

Thanksgiving day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are days full of kissing grandmas and eating turkey and taking endless instagrams. The last thing you want to worry about is how your makeup looks! So, I have compiled a list of tips to keep your makeup looking instagram-ready all day. 1. Start with a good moisturizer/primer. I use the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Gel Cream and it works like a charm. I apply this, then my face is ready for my foundation.

2. I've said it before and I'll say it again, you need to set your foundation with a good powder. Read about that HERE.

3. I mentioned it in the post that I linked above but let me tell you that the Urban Decay Setting Spray works wonderfully.

4. To keep your lipstick attached to your lips a little better, lipliner can do the trick. I wrote about that a while back and you can read about it HERE.

5. To keep your eyeshadow on your eyelids, the MAC paint pot is definitely the way to go. I vlogged about it and you can watch that below! And my apologies for the bad lighting. This video was shot before I got my new light for my vlog shoots. :)
