'Tis the Season to be SEPHORA Glammin'

The holiday breeze is here.  Festive lights, Christmas songs, numerous sales going on everywhere!

But what makes our holidays special are the year-end parties and reunions!  Of course we don't get to doll-up everyday, and we don't get to wear those amazing dresses, wedges and pumps while strutting down the red carpet on our daily lives.  So, we, ladies, take these events seriously.  We all want to look fab and feel great from time to time.

Most issues we come up with in times like these are what to wear and how to get the look that we want.

Here are some of my ideas, especially for expectant moms like me.  

For family gatherings or reunions with friends or batch mates, I'd go to chic but comfy style.

And to get that fresh, youthful glow makeup, has so many choices, and I picked up the ones that I highly recommend.

Starting off with the primer to minimize pores, Benefit Cosmetic's POREfessional Face Primer Mini is a keeper.

For the foundation, I chose Sleek Makeup's Base Duo Kit that holds crème foundation and semi-translucent finishing powder in one compact kit. It has SPF 15, Vitamin E and jojoba oil to moisturize and repair dry skin.  One of the best feature is that it creates a luminous glow.

To cover up those dark circles, spots or blemishes, I've tried and love Sleek Makeup's Correct and Conceal.  What I love about this is it's a corrector, concealer, and setting powder in a compact.

We don't want a very hard contour on our 'youthful' look, right?  The Balm's The Manizer Sisters would make that perfect glow we want to achieve.  It's a highlighter, shimmer, and bronzer/shadow in one kit!  It definitely suits all skin tones.

And off to our eyebrows.  Sephora Collection's Eyebrow Kit is a must-have!  It has setting brow wax, 2 brow powders, a tweezer, a spoolie brush, and an angle brush.  With these, you can definitely customize your brows.  But we don't want an "Angry Bird" brows, eh?  It would just make your features stronger than softening it.  Youth = soft.  Get it?

For the eyeshadow, I prefer ZOEVA's Naturally Yours Palette that comes in 10 shades.  You can wear it for day makeup and just apply darker shades when you're off to a dinner date.  But for our 'youthful glow' look, I would choose the first four shades of the palette: pure, first love, soft & sexy, and casual elegance (see photo below).

ZOEVA's Naturally Yours Palette.
The first four shades would suit a youthful glow look.

To accentuate our eyes better, Sephora Collection's 24hr Felt Liner- Intense Black eyeliner is the best pick.  It is highly pigmented, long-wearing, smudge-proof, and is quick-drying.  You can easily remove it as well. :)

Pop out your lashes with your eyelash curler and brushing it off with Benefit Cosmetics' Roller Lash Mini.  It is long-wearing and easy to remove.

And the last touch is ZOEVA's Luxe Matte Lipstick in shade Omnipresent to give that nude, fresh look.


Now for the "glam look," I have these in mind:

I still prefer the makeup choices I've made for the 'youthful glow' look, but I will be adding more deeper shades on the eyeshadow and lipstick:

As you can see above, I would still use ZOEVA's Naturally Yours Palette (that comes in 10 shades) but choosing the other six deeper shades for more smokey eye effect.  And switching nude matte lipstick with Red Burlesque's Michelle L'amour lipstick for more glamorous and sexier touch.

I personally don't use false eyelashes as I am blessed with long, curly lashes.  So you have the option to put it on for more fuller lashes, like Ardell's Fashion Lash.

Now we're all set for the party/parties!

Due to the holiday rush, I'd rather shop online than deal with long lines and traffic.  And knowing that Sephora PH delivers for free when you exceed Php 1,300 on your total bill!  Isn't that great?  There are so many products to choose from as gifts or for personal use.  You can definitely shop more make-up products on Sephora PH here!

So, what 'look' are you eyeing on for the upcoming holiday events?  Come share it with me on the comments below.  :)
