When it comes to holiday makeup, the first thoughts in our head usually involve some type of glitter and an intricate smokey eye. But honestly, when we have festive events happening back to back and a ton of Christmas gift shopping to do, putting on a full face of makeup is the last thing on our minds. So when we heard about Kosas' five-minute face beauty look we knew we had to put it to the test. See how it went down in the video above and keep reading for more on the brand!

Founded in 2015 by Sheena Yaitanes, a mother and entrepreneur who has a background in chemistry, art and business, the cutting-edge cosmetics line was created to make beauty fun and easy again. All of their products are super simple to use and can be applied with your fingers -- does it get easier than that?

While Kosas is still a relatively new company, the brand already has a cult-like following (you've probably seen their products on your Instagram feed) and its products have quickly become favorites of beauty gurus. Their Tinted Face Oil has even won an Allure Best of Beauty award!

So with high-quality, clean products in mind, Kosas' epic five-minute face can be achieved quickly with just a few products, and we have a feeling that we will be replicating this look for all of our holiday events this month!

To get started, the brand recommends putting three to four drops of their Tinted Face Oil on clean skin and blending it in to get a blurred yet glowy complexion. Then to add some color, apply the 8th Muse Color & Light Palette (a gorgeous cream blush and highlighter duo) to your cheeks and the high points of your face. Then finish off your look with a few pats of their Weightless Lip Color in the shade Electra for a festive pop of red, and a swipe of the Wet Lip Oil Gloss in the shade Jelly Fish for some shine and hydration.

If you want to take your holiday makeup up a notch, consider adding your favorite shade of Kosas' 10-Second Eyeshadow to your eyelids! These metallic shadows come in a liquid form but dry like a powder and can be layered on for a higher color payoff if desired.
