1. Holiday Scented Shampoo

Many products come out around this time of year that embraces popular holiday scents that will be the perfect addition to your beauty regimen for the festive season ahead.

2. A Holiday Red Lip

Red lip colors are bold and you really have to have the confidence to pull off this look, but now is the best time to experiment with your makeup and lip colors!

Find a deep maroon red that has a hint of orange for a more neutral red shade and create a look that makes you feel festive!

If you’re not someone who enjoys a red lip addition to their makeup routine, try out a deep plum shade.

A plum shade can really remind people of the holiday spirit just as much as a simple red lip. Experiment and find what is best for you.

It’s crazy how much of a difference a new lipstick can make you feel. It can boost your confidence and it can make you feel beautiful. It enhances your beauty and will make a bold statement to anyone around you.

3. Embrace Those Curls

If you have straight hair or wavy, embrace those curls and try something different this holiday season.

Try big rolling curls so you can achieve big hair that won’t be weighed down by humidity or the cold weather.

This is the perfect holiday look, especially if it’s not a look you usually are drawn to or find yourself trying. You never know, you might even enjoy it more than you might think!

If you’re someone who has curly hair, try blowing out your curls for a full-body wave.

This is a great way to simply freshen up your beauty routine so you can get into the holiday spirit!

4. Try A New Eyeshadow

While you’re adding all these holiday-inspired aspects to your festive beauty regime, why not try a new eyeshadow?

Typically women stick to the same makeup routine for everyday makeup, so why not switch it up this holiday season with a new color or look?

Embrace a new rusty orange or a dark emerald green for a pop of color that fits right in with the holidays.

You might even find a way to incorporate these colors into your daily makeup routine for a boost of confidence as well. Get out of your comfort zone and you’ll get into the festive spirit in no time!

5. Add Some Shimmer

Winters can dry out your skin simply because of the cold air! This can cause dull skin and skin hyperpigmentation.

A great way to get your natural glow back this winter is to embrace some shimmery highlights!

Choose a highlight of your choice and add a bit to the tip of your nose, upper cheekbone, chin, and along the bridge of your nose.

This will highlight the most raised areas of your face for a younger and dewy look.

When you add a highlighter to your face it will help achieve some of the best anti-aging illusions you probably didn’t even think of.

It will make your face look more full and youthful, as well as add a festive glow to your skin.

6. Try Out A New Cut

What better time of year is there to completely revamp your look?

The winter and the holidays ahead are all about trying something new before New Year gets here! Try a trim for a fresh bouncy look, or maybe even try out cutting some fringe!

A fresh fringe always looks great on any face shape, so why not try them before you head to all of those holiday parties? Not only will you make a statement but you’ll be in the spotlight of the party with your new glam look!

7. Don’t Matte, Embrace The Gloss

2019 has been a year of embracing the matte look when it comes to lipstick and liquid lipstick, but when winter rolls around, don’t dry out your lips more than you have to. Try a dewy and glossy lipstick that will keep your lips hydrated and will also look fantastic during the festive season.

When trying out a dewy and glossy lipstick you’ll give the illusion that your lips are fuller and more healthy because of how moisturized they look. Don’t go overboard and make a mess with too much gloss, just add a little bit for a natural and stunning makeup looks!

8. Refresh Your Skin With A Bath Bomb

There are tons of ways to refresh your skin this holiday season, from the top moisturizers to trying out some beneficial bath bombs.  If you haven’t used a bath bomb before, indulge yourself so you can feel fresh, moisturized, and you can also avoid issues like skin hyperpigmentation.

There’s nothing better than stepping into a holiday scented bath, with aromas like cinnamon, nutmeg[1], and ginger[2], and stepping out of the warm comforting bath to feel your skin softer than ever.
