3 Beauty Tips for Big Events: Look Your Best at Parties, Reunions & More

Posted on November 9th, 2017

Meeting your future in-laws this week? Turn what could be a stressful and possibly dreaded event into your moment to shine! You can look your best while gathering with your family and friends with our holiday beauty tips for big events. You don’t have to stress to impress!

Here are the only three holiday beauty tips you’ll need to look your best at parties, reunions and more:

Avoid Heavy Foundation
If you’re meeting your future in-laws for the first time during the holidays, the last thing you want them to focus on is your makeup. Applying too much foundation or powder can create a more mature appearance, especially during the cool-weather season. We recommend a bronze and glowy makeup look that suits any skin tone.

Utilize illuminating products such as highlighters and primers to give your skin a dewy, glowy look. Some of our favorites include the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiance and the tarteist PRO glow highlight contour palette. Glow on, #iTANfan!

Contouring is the Name of the Game
We believe contouring is the best thing since sliced bread and the green smoothie craze. Yes, really! A spray tan naturally contours your body from head to toe for a slimmer appearance: legs, midsection (holidays in Hawaii anyone?!), and arms.

A spray tan is also the perfect base for makeup application because it evens out your complexion. Once you have a spray tan, you can further customize your facial contouring with bronzing powder. Make contouring easy and natural looking by simply applying a matte bronzer of your choice right under your cheekbone in an upward angle. And don’t forget to fill in your eyebrows! A simple trick to filling out your eyebrows for the ultimate lift is to start by filling in your arch first.

You Do You
Go for the gold, but don’t forget to be true to yourself. A red lip is a classic holiday look on anyone, but also varies in shades and colors. If you like a more natural look, find a berry red for a more subtle effect, but if you like a more dramatic look, a bright red should be your go-to. Whatever shade you pick, a red lip always makes a statement.
