Grab your Petite ‘n Pretty makeup bag and let’s get started!


Step 1: Fresh Faced


The eyes are going to be the star of this show, so let’s keep the face simple and fresh. As always, start with clean skin. If you’re on the hunt for a gentle cleanser and moisturizer duo that is perfect for the colder months, try the 9021-GLOW! Fresh Start Cleanser and Moisturizer. Not only are these gems great for bringing on the glow, but they are also made from clean ingredients!


Now that you’re feeling fresh, grab your Glow Up All Over Stick (one of our personal favs) and slide it over your cheeks for a light flush of color. Use clean fingers and tap the product into your cheeks and the finished product will leave you looking perfectly rosy. Top it off with the 9021-GLOW! Cheek & Highlight Duo, grabbing the highlight shade “Sandbar Shimmer” to apply to the high points of your face. For this, you can use your fingers or a fluffy, face brush. Focus the product on the bridge of your nose, cheekbones and forehead so you’ll achieve your best selfie skin!


Step 2: Starry Eyes


We’re busting out the Paradise on Ice Eye & Cheek Palette to layer up in the sparkles this holiday season. Grab the brush in the palette, using the bigger end to pick up the shade “ Twilight Twinkle” and dust it over your lids as a base. After that, grab the icy shade “Chilly Frilly” on the same brush and tap it over the base we just created. Apply as many layers as you’d like until you get your desired opacity. When finished, your lids should look perfectly shiny!


Now, we’re going to use the smaller end of the brush so we can work on smaller areas of our eyes. First, grab the champagne shade “Cozy” and focus it on the crease of your eyelid. Use windshield wiper motions to blend the color into our lid shade. Be sure to keep blending until the shades look seamless. If you want to darken the look up a bit, mix this color with the cocoa shade “Brave the Cold”. Feel free to drag the color on your lower lash line to spice it up a bit, too!


The holidays are about cheer, so if you want to bring some color to the eyes, grab the teal shade “Freezy Breezy” and pop it in your inner color. This will add a little something to your eyes without overpowering the colors we’ve already used!


Step 3: Pucker-Perfect Lips


A frosty lip is calling our name here, so grab the 10K Shine Lip Gloss in the glossy color “Glow Down” and apply it all over your lips. This baby is lightweight, pretty and perfect for any night of holiday festivities.


And you’re done! Super easy, right? Feel free to get creative to make this look your own. Switch up the eyeshadow colors, add a little bit of extra glitter or take away any steps that aren’t fitting to your style! Your makeup should make you feel glamorous, and the best finishing touch to any look is confidence, so mix it up until you create your perfect glow. Be sure to show us how your holiday makeup look turns out by taking a killer selfie and tagging us in it on our social platforms. Happy holidays, Glam Squad!
