I’ve never really considered myself a big glitter and glitz kind of girl until- well, this year. ESPECIALLY this holiday season. I have bought more sequins and shimmer than I have ever before. I don’t know if it’s because we have all lived in sweats for the last two years; this year, I’m like, give me ALL the sequins, and glitter, and gold, and shiny! And since it is the holidays, we are going to excuse it. But today, let’s talk about the best holiday makeup (at least in my book), and you better believe it’s going to include glitter and shimmer. ?
I’m almost sure I have worn nothing but shimmer shadows for the last month. I LOVE a shimmer shadow, especially during the holidays. I saw an image of Hailey Bieber scrolling on Pinterest and loved the soft wing with shimmer and had to re-create the look. This look above is SUPER easy to do, and for me, it’s perfect for a holiday look. It has a little shimmer, and a little edge with the winged liner. It’s edgy but sweet.
Before we get into best holiday makeup and the tutorial below, I do want to remind you that Nordstrom has TONS of items and beauty products that are labeled “arrives before Christmas”. So if you’re looking to pamper yourself during the busy season, or looking for gifts, check out Nordstrom.com. I always love shopping and getting my beauty items at Nordstrom, I get points and notes (which means more shopping ?), I can also choose when I want to use double or triple the points. Being a part of the Nordy club also gets me free curbside pickup, and free shipping/returns. And, it’s free to sign up! If you have not signed up yet- I would recommend it!
