Holiday Bling

Want to look as good as your tree? Here are a few tips to give you some holiday flair.

Gold is a huge color for the holidays. Use just a bit of it to accent some of the clothes you're already sportin'. A shiny necklace, bracelet, or a sequined tank underneath a cardigan, a comfy sweater or a jacket is a great way to add a little holiday shimmer.

Don't think that you are only limited to gold. Silver works just as well, but gold is THE thing for this season. Add a bit of shiny silver the same way without having to get a whole new wardrobe for Christmas. Although, that wouldn't be too bad, would it?

Add some shimmer to your face by getting a gold or silver sparkly eyeshadow to add just a splash of festive. There are also mineral-based finishing face powders that are great for the skin and have a touch of shimmer to give your skin a great glow. We use Mirabella's Pure Sun (which has a gold shimmer) and Illuminate (which has a bit of a silver shimmer). These are nice and light and are not glittery, but give a beautiful holiday glow.

Add a bit of sparkle to your fingernails, or use a bold color. OPI has some really, really fun colors for the season this year.

Use hair accessories. These are another big thing for the season. Headbands, clippies, barrettes, bows; There are all sorts of fun things to top you off. Make sure the accessory is in proportion with your hairstyle and length. For example, don't wear a huge peacock headband or ginormous flower if you have short hair. It looks precious on a baby, but that's about it. You don't have to spend a lot on hair accessories. I like to look around at the craft stores and find things that I think would be cute glued on a bobby pin or clippie. I have also purchased cheap dollar store headbands and found fun pins, etc. to put on those as well. This could be a fun craft project, for those of you with some spare time in December. ;)

A Word to the Wise: Although it seems obvious, I'd better say it anyway... Don't do all of these things at once. Just pick one or two. You don't want to look like a walking Christmas tree!

Happy Holidays!
