Today we are continuing with our conversations about the holidays. To refresh your memories, in anticipation of the upcoming holiday season, I’ve started putting together and sharing gift guides, holiday party outfits, and beauty tips.
During this time of the year it’s glowing everywhere. Neighboorhoods are sparkling with
Christmas lights, stores are decked with ornaments, and glittered decorations, inside our homes we are all implementing big or small changes getting ready to greet 2016.
I love to create a similar holiday glow for my hair, face, and body when attending various holiday events. Want to learn how? Here is a peek into how I got ready for an early holiday party we went to with my family and some of my tips to add a sparkle to your look.
HOW TO GET A GLOW GETTING READY FOR THE HOLIDAY PARTIES
Above are the products I used to get a holiday glow in today’s look. We’ve been members of Costco for the past fourteen years. Especially in the recent years Costco has seriously grown their beauty section, and truly became a one-stop-shop for the holidays. I’ve been finding so many brands I already use daily there. I appreciate that Costco offers me such a value with the larger size products, and I also love the convenience of not running out of them so quickly.
STEP 1 – GET THOSE PEARLY WHITES AS BRIGHT AS THEY CAN BE
I start getting ready by whitening my teeth. Today I used 1 Hour Express WhiteStrips from Crest 3D WhiteStrips Combo Pack. I kept the strips on my teeth for an hour to get an extra sparkle in my smile.
STEP 2 – STEP IN THE SHOWER AND MOISTURIZE WITH A BODY WASH
After I whitened my teeth, I hopped in the shower and used Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash (available at the warehouse) to moisturize my body. The Shea Butter in this body wash really helps with the dry patches and gives your body a shine.
STEP 3 – MAKE YOUR HAIR SMOOTH WITH A NOURISHING SHAMPOO
I washed my hair with Pantene Advanced Care Shampoo which is infused with a Vitamin B5 Complex. It gave my hair extra smoothness, an my hair color vibrancy.
STEP 4 – PAMPER YOUR SKIN WITH A LIGHTWEIGHT MOISTURIZING SERUM & PREPARE YOUR FACE FOR MAKE-UP
I always apply a lightweight moisturizer at least 1 hour before my make-up. Today I used
Olay Regenerist Regeneration Serum (available at the warehouse) which is a wonderful product. It regenerates surface cells for younger, firmer-looking skin. Makeup looks much better over a moisturized face.
STEP 5 – APPLY YOUR HOLIDAY MAKEUP
Add an extra holiday glow to your look with holiday makeup colors such as golds, silvers, and of course bright red lips. Jewel hues on your eyes also go great with party outfits. Here I created a smoky eye in an untraditional way. I used shades of purple instead of black and grey on my eyelids.
STEP 6 – ADD SPARKLE WITH YOUR OUTFIT AND ACCESSORIES
Complete your glowing holiday look with a shiny outfit, and accessories. I chose a dress that blends in both gold and silver with black and whites; festive yet classy. The golden chain strap clutch also works with the holiday theme.
You can head to your local Costco to find all of these products. Here are the aisles, and shelves you can find them at. Also check out Pantene Advanced Care Shampoo & Crest 3D White Strips Combo Pack here.
