Today, we’re going to help you get ready for any incoming holiday parties. 

When it comes to planning your holiday party look, one trend you’ll want to look out for this season is the glowing look, which starts with a perfect canvas of skin and ends with radiant clothing. Whether you’re prepping for office holiday parties, white elephant gift exchanges with your friends, or Christmas Eve with your relatives, we have all the tips and tricks you need to create the perfect look. Keep reading to find out more.


Glowing Skin

To create the ultimate glowing look, you need to start with the perfect canvas; the canvas being your skin, of course! When you think of a “glowing” look, the first thing you are likely to think of is beautifully radiant skin. If you are looking to brighten up your skin ahead of the holiday season, you need to start with a good skincare routine. This routine should include products to help keep your skin properly moisturized and hydrated.

Keeping your skin hydrated is especially important around the holidays, as the dry winter air can wreak havoc on your skin, making it more difficult to achieve a glowing dewy look. If you struggle to keep your skin adequately moisturized, try out some vegan collagen from Pacifica. When applied topically, collagen is said to provide moisture to the skin, which can increase firmness, elasticity, and hydration.

If blemishes and breakouts are your main skincare concern, you’re going to need a solution that will help alleviate the issue without drying out your skin; this can be challenging as many anti-acne products contain ingredients that are specifically intended to remove moisture from the skin. If you’re in need of a topical acne solution that won’t dry out your skin, try using Manukora’s manuka honey New Zealand. When applied directly to the skin in a thin layer, manuka honey can not only assist in clearing up breakouts, but can help retain moisture without making the skin appear oily.

If it seems like topical products never work to heal your acne, you may need to attack the problem from a different angle. In addition to continuing your normal skincare routine, try including these vitamins for clear skin from JSHealth in your daily routine. Vitamins work to attack the problem from within and are a great solution for those who struggle with particularly difficult-to-cure acne.

Luminous Makeup


Once you’ve achieved flawless glowing skin, it’s time to plan the makeup look you’ll wear to your holiday event. Keep up with the trends this year and pull inspiration from the hit TV show Euphoria. If you didn’t get a chance to tune into season two earlier this year, Euphoria makeup is all about the glow, shine, and shimmer.

Half Magic has all the products you need to replicate your favorite looks from the TV show that captivated audiences all around the world. Try out one of Maddy’s bold and sassy looks by using silver glitter, sharp winged liner, and natural lash extensions from Lashify. Or you can go with one of Cassie’s sweet and subtle looks by applying rhinestone accents to the eyes and natural highlights to the skin. No matter which character you use for inspiration, the perfect holiday makeup look is easy to achieve when using these tips.


Radiant Clothes

If sequins and tinsel galore isn’t what comes to mind for a glowing holiday party look, allow us to make some more subtle suggestions. While you’re absolutely free to wear head to toe sparkle if that’s what makes you feel your best, we have some alternative looks that won’t distract from the work you put into your skincare and makeup. Here are some of our favorite styles for any event this holiday season.

  • Satin over shimmer: A satin dress or blouse gives a similar shine to a glitter look, but in a classier and more low-key way. Choose a fun holiday color, like an emerald green or bright gold, to bring out the flawless glow of your skin and makeup.   
  • Be selective with glitter pieces: Instead of showing up in a fully bedazzled dress, go with a more subtle outfit and add a pair of shimmering heels or a sparkly bag; this is the perfect way to participate in holiday fashion cliches without going overboard on items that you may only get one use out of. 
  • Bright accessories: There’s nothing that helps you glow and sparkle quite like the perfect accessories. Therefore, bright and shiny jewelry pieces are a must. Mejuri has some amazing pieces that will help you achieve the perfect look for your holiday parties. Don’t forget to give yourself a spritz of one of your favorite sweet perfumes from Snif. We suggest going for perfume scents that perfectly capture the glitz and glitter of the holiday season.

Achieving the Perfect Holiday Glow

Holiday parties are the perfect opportunity to try out a gorgeous, glowing style. The right skincare routine, some fresh makeup inspiration, and a radiant outfit are all you need to achieve a perfect glowing look. Make sure to wow your friends and family this holiday season with your new look, and don’t forget to have an amazing time celebrating in style with your loved ones by your side.
