My Holiday Makeup Essentials

This time of year is filled with family gatherings and festive parties. I love seeing all of the holiday fashion and getting dressed up. I especially love all of the amazing makeup looks. There are bold colors, smokey eyes, plenty of highlighter, and a bit of sparkle. The right makeup look can take a little black dress from simple to festive. So whether you prefer a bold eye or a megawatt glow, choosing quality products is important. After all, you don’t want your look to fade before you do.

Mary Kay® is one of those brands you can trust to do just that. Just in time for the holidays, they’ve launched their Chromafusion™ Collection. These shades are designed to last all day and be life proof. Even when life gets busy, these colors are sure to stay. So go as natural or as dramatic as you want.


The Mary Kay® Chromafusion™ Eye Shadow is perfect for that gorgeous eye makeup look. You can create a smokey eye or something more colorful. The line features 17 shimmer and 16 matte shades in a wide range of colors. The variety is guaranteed to make an eye color pop. These shades are designed to last for up to 12 hours. So no matter how busy you are this season, your makeup will be going strong through the new year. The application is also something to take note of. It goes on smooth and blends easily. I loved the lack of creasing and fall out. No more panicking trying to get rid of out of place excess eye shadow.  The pigmentation of the shades is beautiful.


When doing your makeup most of the focus tends to be put on either the eyes or lips. It’s important to remember the rest of the face really pulls it all together too. I love using a good highlighter, especially for my holiday looks. I want to look luminous.The Mary Kay® Chromafusion™ Collection offers two shades (Glazed and Honey Glow) that are flattering on everyone. It’s lightweight and is even suitable for sensitive skin. To add some dimension I go for contour next. The Chromafusion™ line offers two shades and just like the highlighter works with every skin tone. The color is buildable so you can go as dramatic as you want with your contouring. The finishing touch is the Chromafusion™ Blush. It’s available in 8 shimmer and 2 matte shades. It adds that perfect pop of color to your cheeks.

Holiday Palette

I love the convenience of a palette. One of the biggest complaints I have about them is that so often you buy one and you only end up using a few colors, half if it’s a really great one. What if you loved every single color in a palette? Mary Kay offers the ability to customize your beauty look with their Chromafusion™ Collection and Pro Palette™. Now you can create your perfect holiday look with the ease of one palette where you handpick all of the colors. This also makes an amazing gift!

With so many events over the next few weeks between the holidays and New Year’s, I can’t wait to use the wide range of Mary Kay® Chromafusion™ colors to create my makeup looks. What’s your go-to makeup look this time of year?
