5 Items You Want in Your Holiday Makeup Bag

The holiday season is littered with parties, and you know what that means: more excuses to beautify!

So when it comes to these special occasions, here are a few wow-worthy products you'll want in your makeup bag:

1. All I Want For Christmas Is You, Clear Skin

Ditch the powders and go with a simple tinted moisturizer to cover up any skin impurities. Laura Mercier's oil-free tinted moisturizer is lightweight, and it hydrates, to help prevent your skin from drying out this winter.

2. Holiday in the Sun

Even though temperatures can get pretty frigid, it's always nice to get a sun-kissed look. Try tarte's showstopper clay palette. This includes highlighting eyeshadows and a warm blush, all in one.

3. Accessor-eyes!

Benefit roller lash mascara curls and lifts eyelashes, giving you length and volume, so you can add the final touches to your eyes.

4. Lip Service

As far as your lips are concerned, try a Chubby Stick or a lip pencil to help line them and fill in with color. Try the NARS Satin Lip Pencil in a hot red color or a nude shade.

Finish the look with a plumping lip polish to keep lips looking shimmery and full. Buxom's Full-On Lip Polish has a range of colors to choose from, or you can go with their clear shade.

Now you're ready to hit that holiday party looking your best, so celebrate beautifully!
