I love the holidays, and starting today all my girls are home and we are ready to really celebrate and do all those family holiday activities together. We still have tons of visits to the mall for more shopping, the babies have not yet gone to see Santa so we are going this weekend for sure, and we have some family parties to go to as well. This is what I love about the holidays the most, getting to hang out with my girls and do the things we used to do when they were little. Now we do the same holiday traditions with their babies and it makes it even more special. Another really fun part about the holidays, is getting to glam it up a bit more. Where I am usually just wearing some light makeup, the holidays allow me to really bring on the glam. Which is one of the best part about a girl right? I love getting up and fixing myself up for a long day of fun family activities. It sure beats sitting around in shorts, a tee, and a bun all day, that's for sure.
In order to keep my skin in top shape and ready for the daily makeup routine, it's important that I keep it clean and healthy. The winter is so harsh on our skin, it's a constant struggle to keep it moisturized and hydrated. The Neutrogena makeup wipes are a little holy grail, they really are. Especially because I tend to get very lazy at night, having these wipes on my nightstand allows me to go to bed with a makeup free face.
When my skin is healthy and clean, I have the perfect canvas to play with my makeup! I love makeup, I think anyone that stops by here knows this. But I also love really simple makeup that doesn't take jumping through a lot of hoops. I simply don't have time to sit and do eye shadow for 15 minutes, or add three layers of foundation and powder. My makeup routine needs to be fuss free and easy. When I received my new Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick in Fresh Papaya and the Neutrogen Crease Proof Eye Shadow in Stay-put Plum, I was excited. I love plums and purples for the holidays and I could not wait to see how these two would pair together.
I was once again a little scared with the shadow because I am so bad at application, but this is a no brainer. I just applied it to my lid, starting off a bit light in case I messed it up and then added another two coats to deepen it up. I like that it's buildable so you can add a light wash or a deeper overall one. I also added some under my waterline and finished it off with the Neutrogena Healthy Lengths Mascara.
I've mentioned before how incredible the Neturogena color sticks smell, I can't get over it. It's such a pleasure to apply this chubby stick and I liked the end look very much. I rarely if ever do a dark eye and a light lip, so it was nice to step out of my comfort zone. I wore this look all day today and I like how the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation made my skin look really natural and healthy looking. I like it a lot more now that my skin needs that extra moisture. I did apply the Neutrogena Healthy Glow Blush and Bronzer combo, which gave my skin a tanned glow and great cheek color.
Neutrogena is just such a great line, there really is no going wrong with their products. It's so easy to enjoy the holiday season when you know your skin and makeup look great. And how easy do they make it. No fuss, no hassle, just great products that really deliver. Find out more about the products I used today by visiting Neutrogena online.
