HOLIDAY HAIRSTYLE: FUN AND FESTIVE BOWS

Bows are not just for presents anymore! No matter your hair type, curly or straight, thick or thin, a bow could be the perfect addition to that fantastic holiday outfit! Keep reading to see my four favorite holiday bow hairstyles.

Soft curls (aka Victoria Secret Angel locks) are a gorgeous look for any holiday party. For this style, I used my curling wand and brushed out the curls to create these cascading waves. Once I had the curls set, I teased the hair around my face and then pulled it all back with the bow.

A sleek side do is always a great go-to holiday hairstyle. All you have to do is add a few soft curls to your hair, pull it to the side, and clip the bow right above your hairband. Super simple!

Want a more formal look? Try a high bun with a bow! Start by teasing the top of your hair to create more volume. Then, tilt your head upside down and make a messy bun. If you notice a few loose strands, tame them with hairspray and then top it off by clipping a medium sized bow just below the bun.

For a super simple and quick hairstyle, I love pulling back one side of my hair in a bow. For this, a smaller bow works best so it doesn’t over do the look.

BE MERRY, BE BRIGHT, BE BEAUTIFUL THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

The holiday season is finally here with Christmas right around the corner! Before we know it, we will be attending all kinds of fun holiday parties which are some of the best opportunities to get dressed up! Check out one of the outfits I’ll be wearing this holiday season!

Cold weather can’t stand between me and my love of dresses. This black, quarter-sleeve dress is absolutely perfect for a holiday party. As soon as I spotted it, I knew I had to buy it! I adore the simple black color and A-frame style. There’s just something so chic about the pop of white paired with the black.

To top it off, these red shoes were a must! For a winter-like look, I went with these suede, high heel pumps. Although, I must warn you, these can be dangerous to wear in the winter so make sure you spray them with a shoe protector before heading out.

The best part about this outfit is that if it’s too cold, I can throw on a pair of black tights and booties for some warmth!

HOLIDAY GLAMOUR

hairlook5.jpg

I love trying out new make up and hairstyles for the holidays – I mean, this is the time of year to really shine. So, I found the crown braid ponytail and the gold shimmer eye shadow looks on Pinterest and decided to see if they will be a fit for my fabulous holiday look.

What I love about this hairstyle is that it keeps the hair out of my face but still shows off the length of my locks. Plus, it only took me about five minutes!

Here is how to get this look:

1. Part your hair and start the braid on either side.

2. Gather small hair pieces into the french braid following your hair line – not your part!

3. Stop the french braid at the nape of your neck then continue a normal braid a few inches, long enough to wrap around the ponytail.

4. Tie the end of the braid with a small, clear-elastic band. Gather the loose hair into a low pony tail right next to where the french braid ends at the nape of your neck.

5. Wrap the braid around the ponytail and bobby pin the loose end underneath. TaDa!!

The Gold Glimmer eyes were almost as simple as the braid – I only used three different Jane Iredale Shadows and a simple black liquid liner and mascara.

1. Lightly brush the Jane Iredale Shimmer Powder in Gold over the lid, from the inner corners to the far brow.

2. Using the Jane Iredale Rose Gold shadow starting from the middle of the lid to the outer corner, up towards the brow.

3. Using the Jane Iredale Smokey Grey shadow, trace up from the outter corner of the lid, where it meets the lashes, up towards the brow to give a winged effect.

4. Line the upper lashes with liquid eyeliner, allowing the line to extend slightly past the end of your eye.

5. Mascara! Tons of it. I would even suggest adding a few false lashes to make your eyes really pop!

**Apply a light layer of the Enza Essentials Liquid Gold to your face before applying your concealer or powder. It feels luxurious and is the special treatment your skin deserves this season.

That’s all there is to this look, pair it with some extra bling and sequined shirt, like me, and its the perfect fit for either Christmas or New Years!

GIFT GUIDE FOR THE HARD-TO-BUY

IMG_2203

We all have those friends or family members who have it all and we cannot settle for getting them the same old stuff they already have. Well, we’ve come up with a solution for you! Pair something you know they already love with an Enza Essentials product they need – and that fits their lifestyle.

1. The Bookworm: This woman loves to stay home and curl up by the fire with the newest Jodi Picoult novel. She can stay up all night just to finish those last hundred pages and consider coffee her best friend. We recommend a personalized mug (for the coffee, of course) paired with the Enza Essentials Anti-Puffiness Eye Gelee (so she can pretend she got those full eight hours of sleep)… OR the Pore Extraction Masque – so easy for her to do while she contemplates how the story will end. AND the Pore Extraction Masque is only $30 now through the end of the year! Score!

2. The Glamour Gal: She heads to the best parties and newest bars almost every weekend. Her “down” time is spent shopping and sipping champagne. Alright, maybe she isn’t that fabulous, but she does love a luxurious life. Your time together is most likely spent catching up on the latest Kimye gossip with manis and pedis. We recommend a fabulous statement necklace paired with the Enza Essentials Lip Treatment to make her lips feel like satin. The Liquid Gold is also the perfect gift for her — it’s seriously luxurious-ness combined with amazing skin benefits to leave your skin silky smooth.

3. The Athlete: You may not think of beauty and skincare products when you first think of her, but every woman deserves to feel and be beautiful. This friend or family member is constantly active – whether it’s finding a new mountain to climb or hitting up the gym every day of the week, she’s the fittest woman you know. We recommend giving her the cutest new workout product and pair it with the Sustaining Toner and Sustaining Glow Creme. These two products will work together magically. The toner will help remove the dirt and sweat after a shower, plus balance her skin’s pH levels. Goodbye, breakouts. The creme will keep her skin hydrated with a gorgeous glow.
