A Simple Holiday Look

Before I get started, how fabulous is this movie poster for The Best Man Holiday?!

I’m so excited to see The Best Man Holiday tonight! This is the sequel to The Best Man, which is one of my all time favorite movies and one of the few that I can recite from beginning to end. Because this movie puts me in the holiday spirit, I decided to do my first holiday makeup look of the season. Yes, I know we haven’t had Thanksgiving yet, but the shopping malls have Christmas trees up and today I saw Santa walking around, so it’s officially the holiday season.

Since this is a holiday look, of course I couldn’t do it without a nice red lipstick and some shimmer, but I still kept it pretty simple. Below I have pictures, product details and application instructions. I hope you all enjoy this look as much as I enjoyed creating it! Happy ‘Early’ Holidays and be sure to check out The Best Man Holiday on Friday!

Now the good stuff…
