For a day of catching up with family, straight hair is the way to go. No need to do anything fancy. This is how I wear my hair most days, but I spent a little extra time blow drying it with a round brush to make sure it was smooth and shiny.
As far as makeup is concerned, I can't think of anything more Christmassy than a red lip. Of course with a lipstick this pigmented, you'll want to start with lipliner. Line and fill in your lips completely. Apply your lipstick on top, then blot with a Kleenex. Another layer of lipstick over that will guarantee that the color will last longer, though I can't promise it'll last through your third trip to the dessert table! Since my lips were so bright, I used a shimmery champagne eyeshadow all over my lids, and a matte brown shade in my crease. A thin line of eyeliner on top and a coat of mascara was all I needed to complete my eye look. I used a rosy pink blush to bring a little color to my cheeks and I was done.

The inspiration for my nails was a white Christmas, which I will most likely not get in Texas! Sparkly nails will have to do. I applied a pearly white polish first, and then started layering silver glitter polish on top. I used the blue glitter polish to create a gradient affect towards to tips of my nails. A few nails got a blue snowflake accent that I created with my Konad stamper and plate m59.
