Holiday Looks for Every Occasion

 

From your office holiday party, to a quiet family dinner, these are looks everyone can wear!

I put in a few neutral alternatives and some warmer looks to help your skin glow this winter(for those of you in the serious winter climate like myself).  Each product used can be applied on any color of skin with any hair color( or eye color for that matter). Generally I have a saying about all looks, “As long as you have the confidence, you can rock anything!” but in this case I want you to feel that the look your rocking, makes you feel confident.

Happy Holidays MUGs!

Taryn, you are awesome!! My favorite look is Jessica’s first look, with the bronzed eyes/deep pink lip. But they are all great!

Very nice. Thank you! I found this to be very helpful.

It may have been nice to get a better close up of Kaitlyn, and maybe of the blending on Jessica, but still a wonderful article.

Great looks!! Just a question, how do you apply the erase paste??? from Benefit and where can I find it? I live in Canada….
Thanks,

Yessica, you can find Erase Paste and the entire Benefit line in Canada at Shopper’s Drug Mart (Beauty Boutiques have more selection), Holt Renfrew, Sephora and Murale!

Good Job Taryn! I cant decide which one I like more, and although Ive stayed away from frosty blue shadow for some years now, Im tempted to try it for NYE. Be glamorous and safe this New Years Eve no matter where you are, Happy New Year Fellow MUGS!!!

I love Kaitlyn’s eyes, I wish there was a closer picture of her eyes. A tutorial would also be GREAT!!!
