Sleigh Your Holiday Party

Tis the season… for holiday parties! Whether it’s your work holiday party or one with friends, one is for sure, you’ll need to sleigh! (See what I did there?) There was a work holiday party coming up and I was going crazy like the choose the perfect outfit. Aside from knowing that I wanted red/burgandy incorporated into my beauty look, I wasn’t sure if I should go simple or full-on festive.


First step, find a dress! I really wanted to find the perfect dress where my makeup would be the highlight and not the dress itself. So after scouring different stores and websites, I finally decided on doing Rent The Runway. This was my second experience with the service and I’m hooked! I used to think, why would anyone rent a dress when you can go out and buy a dress for the same price point. Well, what I’ve found is that sometimes it doesn’t matter how much you’re willing to shell out… every dress just isn’t quite right for the occasion. Enter, RTR! I joined their PRO service, where you pay an annual fee of $30 you get free insurance, free shipping, and a free birthday dress.  So I found the perfect dress by Nha Khanh.


Second step, put together the perfect holiday beauty look! So I really wanted to hightlight my Huda Beauty matte lippie in “Famous”. I lined by lips with the matching lip liner in “Famous”. I did a winged liner and contoured my face. Also, highlighted because I knew we’d be taking pictures all night! The NYX primer I used is the exact dupe for the Smashbox photofinish primer by the way (look out for a post I’ll be soon on the bet makeup dupes!)
