It’s time to sparkle and shine at your holiday parties this season! Enhancing your everyday makeup with a little extra oomph can help you get into the festive spirit and photograph beautifully in holiday pictures.

Here are three tips for transitioning your everyday makeup to party-ready in minutes.

Shimmer for the Win

Add sparkle to the eyelid using a shimmer or metallic eye shadow, loose pigment, or glitter. Pro tip: apply shadows before adding mascara and lashes to prevent pigment from falling onto your lashes.

Falsies Make a Real Difference

False lashes are the fastest way to elevate any makeup look. Add a full lash for a glamorous look or a half lash for a more natural aesthetic. My favorites are light, fluffy lashes like Ardell Nakeds because they’re lightweight and comfortable. Need help with application? Check out @imagebylisa on Instagram for tutorials.

Pop of Color to Pop on Camera

Nothing says Christmas like a classic red lip! Red can feel uncomfortable when you don’t wear it often, but step out of your comfort zone and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Brighter colors can help you look younger and bring back the fun factor. Red is a showstopper on and off-camera.
