My Holiday Makeup Bag Must-Haves

The holiday party season is upon us — is your makeup bag ready to go? Do you have the essentials to get you through the craziness of Christmas celebrations and New Year’s Eve? I don’t know about you, but I have my personal makeup bag must-haves and favorites in stock. This is what’s going to get me through all of my favorite holiday parties.


Do It All Foundation: When it comes to my foundation, I have to choose one that does it all for me. That’s why I love Covergirl’s Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation. It has primer, concealer, and foundation in one.

Stay-Put Blush: As you party hop, keep your cheeks rosy and radiant. I really like Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Blush. It lasts all day and won’t fade.

Defining Eyeliner: Make those eyes stand out with a liquid eyeliner. Create a beautiful cat eye with something like Mary Kay’s Liquid Eyeliner. It stays and glides on easily.

Shimmering Eyeshadow: This holiday season, it’s all about the dazzle. And there’s no better way to make those eyes pop than with a glitter or metallic eyeshadow. My personal favorite is by Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eyeshadow. This lasts through some of the wildest parties.

Voluminous Mascara: Pair your dazzling eyes with a voluminous mascara that pumps up those eyelashes. When it comes to mascara, my go-to is L’Oreal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lashes. It does the thick trick and doesn’t flake.

Bold Lipstick: Go bold or stay home! I don’t leave my house without a bright lipstick or lip color when I’m headed to a party. I love the price tag and the quality of Flower Kiss Stick Velvet Lip Color in Get to the Poinsettia. My lips love it.

Moisturizing Lip Balm: The cold winter nights call for a moisturizing lip balm. I have to carry one on me at all times, and I couldn’t imagine my life without it. I deal with dry lips way too often. EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm gives me flavor and moisture.

Setting Powder: When you finish your holiday beauty look, make sure you set it with a finishing powder. I lightly dust Bobbi Brown’s Sheer Finish Loose Powder over my makeup. It’s made of an oil-absorbing formula that sets my foundation for a smooth and flawless finish.

Bedazzled Makeup Bag: It’s the holidays, and your face isn’t the only thing that should sparkle. Keep your products in a chic makeup bag like this Nine West Go to Glamour Glitter Cosmetic Case. It’s time to shine!
