Office holiday parties, last-minute happy hours and spontaneous date nights abound during the holiday season -- and we're all for it. However, after spending hours staring at our computer screens, running errands and/or in back-to-back meetings, we might not be looking our best when five o'clock rolls around. Luckily, cosmetics brand Nudestix is here to save our after-work plans.

Created by sisters Ally and Taylor Frankel and their mom Jenny, Nudestix originated from the idea that applying makeup should be easy and shouldn't require a million tools or brushes to achieve a great look. Their products mostly come in, you might have guessed it, stick form and are almost all multi-purpose. From cheek colors that can be used as lipstick and eyeshadows (that have a brush on one side) to highlighter that can be used pretty much anywhere, Nudestix is for the woman that loves a blended, seamless, easy kind of look.

The brand offers a ton of great products, but we are partial to their kits. For the holiday season, in particular, we are crushing on the Soft & Smokey: BabeBoss to PartyBoss set.

Shop: Soft & Smokey: BabeBoss to PartyBoss set, $59

True to its name, this $59 kit comes with six NUDIES pencils that will take your daytime look to a nighttime look in a snap. With products that can be used on your eyes, lips and cheeks, this curated makeup set is perfect for women on the go, who don't want to have to carry around their entire makeup routine in case unexpected plans materialize.

Dermatologist-tested and preservative-free, we recommend stashing this makeup kit in your desk drawer should the right moment strike.
