Thanksgiving is a day when we unite with la familia and enjoy our blessings from the year, so how will you look on this special day? Sure, it’s a time to eat, drink, and be merry, but many of us sadly forget all about Thanksgiving beauty. That’s right, there are five tips for chicas everywhere ready to woo loved ones. Make a beautiful first impression with these simple tips:
Tip #5: Keep it Light
Thanksgiving is a day of food and family. There’s no need to cake on the foundation like you’re heading to the club. Leave the heavy duty makeup for Black Friday! For dinner, don’t be afraid to come across as natural and sophisticated. Put your favorite full coverage foundation away and opt for a lightweight mineral-based alternative or a tinted moisturizer. Not only will your skin look flawless, but it will save you time on going all out with products.
Tip #4: No Smoke
Smoky eyes are great for date nights or club openings, but not as appropriate for Thanksgiving dinner. Replace this popular look with one of the season’s hottest trends, metallics. Swipe the lids with metallic shades, like bronze, gold, silver or copper. Then, add a few coats of mascara to the lashes. Afterwards, line the upper lids with black gel liner and you’ve got a subtle yet pretty facethat speaks volumes.
Tip #3: Pretty Pout
One area where you can add some fun and color is your lips. With pared down eye makeup and lightweight foundation, the lips should definitely be a focal point. Look for a classic red lipstick that compliments your skin tone. If red lips don’t suit your taste, go for a gorgeous deep berry or plum shade.
Tip #2: Get Your Bling On
Thanksgiving marks the official beginning of the holiday season, which means you can add some sparkle and shimmer to your look with a glitter-based nail polish. Whether it’s gold or silver, you can run wild with options for nails. A little bit of sparkle is a great way to add some excitement to your look without going too far.
Tip #1: Sweeten the Deal
Fragrance is one of the most important aspects of a woman’s style. Pick a lightweight, feminine scent that won’t overwhelm. The goal is to leave those in your path wondering what you’re wearing. Spritz your favorite fragrance behind your ears, on the pulse points on your wrists, and behind your knees for maximum exposure.
