Holiday makeup has always been a favourite of mine play with, creating fun looks for the season; it’s my favourite after all. There’s always something going on during the holidays; parties, dinner or time with the people in your life. Whether I’m going out with friends or dinner with the fam, I always like to create a look I can wear all day/night. Affordable options are always a good idea so this year I’m using Hard Candy’s 2017 Holiday Collection to help create my look! There are a few favourite go-to’s that I like to wear during the season.

The Red Lip

Drama. Fashion. Glamour – three words I’d use to describe a classic red lip during the holidays. I could wear a red lip any day of the year but it’s always extra nice around the holiday season, don’t you agree? For all those afraid to rock a bolder lip, don’t worry! There are so many ways to rock a red lip that there’s something for everyone. Weather it’s a light wash, a matte red or a burgundy metallic lip it’s always fun trying something out of the ordinary. This year, I opted to go the metallic route. So easy to apply on the go, as you can see, and lasted for a long time! It didn’t bleed either which is a deal breaker for me – great colour too!

Smoky Eye

The smoky eye is one of my favourite makeup looks. Believe it or not, it’s totally daytime appropriate and can easily take you from day to night. Creating a smokey eye is possible with almost any colour palette and most come with a variation of mattes and shimmers to create a multi-dimensional look. Adding a pop of highlight in the middle of the helps to create more drama. After using a primer, I used gold shadows to create this look, adding a pop of highlight on the centre to create a halo effect.

Long Wearing Makeup 

When you’ve got back to back events or just need your makeup to last all day long, a long wear setting spray is crucial to ensure everything looks good from 10am to 10pm or longer. Hard Candy’s Long Wear Setting Spray gives 12hr long wear power plus hydration. I don’t know if you guys know this, but I’m a little obsessed with setting sprays! This one is great to carry with you, touch up if you need to and feels great on the skin. I wore this makeup look from 2pm to 2am and it lasted!
