Hi babes! It’s been a minute… So many things have happened in the past few months! It’s the busiest season for my blog and my work (for all of those who don’t know, I am the Social Media Manager for ONEHOPE Wine). These past few months have been a whirlwind of photoshoots, events, me getting sick (a few times), and general holiday madness! It’s been quite fun, though.
Despite the holiday craziness, I’ve managed to put together some a fun holiday look with one of my favorite makeup brands, essence makeup. I love this brand because their philosophy is quality cosmetics at amazing prices, but more than this, essence has built an inclusive community of young women with beauty, ambition and courage. This community of real girls is built around a love for essence products as well as lifestyle of making the most of life and choosing happiness. I got the chance to test out essence makeup’s Matte Lipstick colors in their Holiday Kit, their Lash Princess – False Lash Mascara, their Pure Nude Highlighter, and their Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara.
For this look, I started with a base of foundation from Bare Minerals, an eyebrow pencil, some eyeliner, and topped the look off with essence’s mascara, highlighter and matte lipstick (mentioned above). The shade (mixed) I am wearing in this post is Purple Power x Wow Effect. The look is bold, but without being over the top! It’s perfect for going out, but appropriate enough for a dinner with the family.
I also gave one lucky winner a chance to receive these products as a holiday gift! Makeup is definitely a great option for a holiday gift, especially bolder options that someone wouldn’t normally try. Head to my Instagram to find out who won!
I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday season! I’ll be checking in with you all a little later 🙂
