The holidays have arrived once again, and that means preparing for the onslaught of festivities that accompany this special season! Once you’ve perfected your up-do and locked down the right heels and cocktail dresses – it’s time to complete your holiday look with stunning makeup and finishing touches.

The holidays are associated with celebrations and joyful feelings, so why not select makeup looks that work to maximize the positive vibes? Looking your best this season will boost your mood, motivation, confidence and self-esteem and help get you through this exhausting time of year.

Here’s some tips from the team at Summit Salon Academy in Gainesville to help get you started!


It All Starts with Your Skin

Taking proper care of your skin is very important if you wish to maintain a vibrant, glowing look. To avoid dry skin during this cold time of year, be sure to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water (and not just champagne!) and applying high-quality facial moisturizer several times daily.


Brows for Days!

Eyebrows complement your facial features and are often one of the first things people notice about your face. Good looking brows are a must to frame your face and give you a “Wow” factor! Invest some money in purchasing a quality brow-grooming kit to improve the look of your brows this holiday season. Dramatic brows are all the rage right now, so go ahead and make the most of it. And be sure to choose an eyebrow pencil color that works with your hair color to improve your overall look.


Eyeliner that Pops

Nothing ups the ante on your look and helps turns heads like properly applied eyeliner. Whether you opt for a muted, natural look, a classic smoky eye, or a bold, black cat eye technique, the eyeliner shade you select should complement your skin and hair color to achieve a balanced result.


They’ll Blush with Envy

Regardless of how many holiday get-togethers, parties and events you attend over the next few weeks, the goal is to give off a glow and stay vibrant and fresh-looking all season long. Utilizing an effective blush is key to adding color to your cheeks no matter how busy and exhausted you may be. Use a flattering, bright color and a clean, fluffy makeup to ensure the best results.
