Seems like we aren’t the only ones getting into the holiday spirit. Some of our favorite local muses have swung into the season with simple yet stunning hair and makeup looks, and we are fa-la-la-la-loving them all. Check out our five current faves—they’re easy to pull off and not too much work!
KIM JONES’ CONTRASTING LIPS & TIPS
The beautiful host and blogger pairs her cherry red lipstick with a burgundy manicure. We’re in love with Kim’s personal spin on the monochromatic color trend (and we’re sure husband Jericho Rosales approves, too).
GET THE LOOK: Try Elizabeth Arden’s Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Red Door Red for your lips and Kleancolor’s #54 Dark Red for your nails.
BIANCA GONZALEZ’S ELEGANT EYE MAKEUP
How does our perennial favorite Bianca G. jazz up a simple nude lip? With a subtle smoky eye, a touch of metallic at her waterline, and flawlessly-applied falsies. Love, love, love.
GET THE LOOK: Try MAC’s Lustre Eye Shadow, Chanel’s Stylo Yeux Eyeliner in Ambre Dore, and 3S Glamour Lashes.
MARIAN RIVERA’S BRAIDED TOPKNOT
We just had to include Marian’s OOTD because she looks so holiday-ready! But what we really want to talk about is that braided bun—it’s not as tricky as you might think. Tie your hair into a high ponytail, plait it, and wind it around until you’ve created the topknot shape you like. Then fix it in place with bobby pins and finish with holding spray!
GET THE LOOK: We like Bedhead TIGI’s Masterpiece Hair Spray or Maxxed Out Massive Hold Hair Spray for that no-flyaway finish.
LIZ UY’S BRONZED CHEEKS & BOLD BROWS
Superstylist Liz is giving us major summer flashbacks with her J.Lo glow. See how she’s applied her peachy-bronze blush to the apples of her cheeks and swept it towards her temples to accentuate her bone structure? And we totally appreciate her brows in this photo—fully-defined, yet natural. This would be a great look for anyone running to a Christmas party with very little time to spare.
GET THE LOOK: To warm up your cheeks, try Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick Compact or The Body Shop’s Shimmering Waves in Bronze. To fill in your brows, try Dolly Wink’s Eyebrow Pencil or MAC’s Eye Brow Crayon.
SARAH LAHBATI’S ROSY PUCKER & FINE FLICK
The lovely Miss Lahbati goes for a needle-thin stroke on her lids for effortless, no-drama eyes. And that lipstick! We’re not sure who makes it—but that warm, demure, rosy-nude shade is something we’d love to find under our Christmas tree.
GET THE LOOK: Try Wet n’ Wild’s Megaliner Liquid Liner for your lids. And for that lip color, experiment with Viseart’s Muse Nudes Lip Palette.
