holiday makeup :: The Family Gathering Look

As someone who does not wear makeup on a daily basis, I was happy to be the model for The Family Gathering Look. Be it the cozy Christmas Eve dinner with family, or the Boxing Day open house, I want to look more polished but not like I'm wearing much makeup.

Sarah from LUX Beauty Boutique was up to the task. In fact, LUX offers Makeup 101 classes perfect for those suck in a rut or who don't wear much makeup. (Check their events page for upcoming dates)

She used only a handful of products and 15 minutes to brighten me up!

First, Stila's 10-in-1 Beauty Balm to moisturize, prime and add a bit of a glow.

Next, to brighten eyes, Stila's Smudge Crayon in Kitten (which can be applied using fingers- perfect for on the go) and a coat of mascara (Geisha Ink). Pro tip: place wand at base of lashes and wiggle side to side as you move to tip. 

Last, Ilia's moisturizing lipstick in a color similar to my natural lips (Nobody's Baby.)
