As I mentioned last week, Thanksgiving is an in-between holiday when you’re looking at what to wear (not too casual nor too fancy). The same rule applies to your makeup. You may be having dinner with family members who have known you your entire life or just sitting down for the first time at your in-laws’ dinner table.
Here are a few things to make your makeup simple yet sophisticated.
That dewy look of bare faces was all over the runway again this year, and it’s something that translates easily to a day of relaxation with those you love. Boost your look by hydrating and maybe putting on some eye cream the night before to reduce any puffiness that may come from travel or just running around to get everything done for the holiday.
Try Beauty Bioscience’s Ultimate Moisturizing Cream for a skin boost.
Go light on lips
Thanksgiving is a holiday built around eating, so this is a good time to go for lipgloss or nude shades that don’t make it obvious when they leave your lips. Lipgloss also makes it extremely easy to reapply as you go through the day.
Try MAC’s PlushGlass (shown above in Fulfilled).
If you want to add a bit more color, make the most of it by gently exfoliating and moisturizing your lips the night before, then layer powder, lipliner, lipstick, more powder and a final coat of lipstick.
Go easy on eyes
Sure, grab the mascara and liner and add a touch of color to your eyes, but keep it more natural. This isn’t New Year’s Eve, after all. An earthy shade can give you enough definition on your eyes without overpowering. A cream eyeshadow should last you all day.
Try INGLOT’s Freedom System Eye Shadow for something that goes on smooth and lasts forever (shown above in AMC Shine).
With these three things in mind, you’re set for the day. I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!
