While festive holiday parties should be fun, getting ready for events can seem more confusing than enjoyable. The question of what to wear, how to do your hair and what sort of makeup to wear can be head-spinning, but don’t get too stressed about holiday beauty. Follow a few guidelines, and you’ll look and feel amazing for any holiday party!

Dress to Impress

The first thing women consider for a holiday party is the perfect outfit, and for many parties, a dress is common, even within this category you have many choices, such as an above-the-knee, black or jewel-toned cocktail dress is more common, and can be used for multiple events. Depending on sleeve length, hemline, neckline, and shape, a cocktail dress can flatter any woman, so consider long-sleeves and a modest neckline paired with a short hem, or a daring low-backed with a covered-up front, or a fitted sequin skirt, or try different fits like sheaths and wrap dresses. The choices are almost endless!

Smart Accessorizing

Once you have your dress, consider shoes, jewelry and bags. Strappy heels and glittery clutches are popular, but a budget-conscious woman can also choose a basic and versatile pump and handbag. For jewelry, look for cocktail rings, sparkly earrings, layered necklaces or cuff bracelets. Be careful not to overdo on jewelry; let one major piece truly stand out and shine.

Don’t Forget The Details

The night of your party, indulge yourself and truly enjoy the pampering process of prepping for the event. Get a salon manicure or do your nails simply at home, experiment with a fun new lipstick color or even something dramatic like false lashes, just give yourself plenty of time to get ready! Wear your hair in a style that you can pull off flawlessly but that is perhaps a bit fancier or more exciting than your everyday style, like a simple chignon, for example, rather than your usual hair-down style.

Makeup is especially fun during the holidays, and for a holiday party, it can be fun to shop for new cosmetics and different shades. Metallic-toned eye shadows and more dramatic liner and mascara can be fun for a nighttime party, and a bold lip looks great paired with a paler, shimmery eye. Here also, you don’t need to break the bank on cosmetics, check out wholesale cosmetics retailers in addition to private label skin care, to find your best deal.

The most important thing is to have fun, because if you look great for that holiday party, you’ll feel great too.
