How to Get a Holiday-Party Face in Five Minutes

This post is sponsored by Target.

Can you believe it’s already the holiday-party season? I, for one, am psyched! I just love getting all dolled up in my holiday finery to enjoy a festive evening with my friends and family. That being said, I don’t always have a ton of time to get ready for said parties. I actually have quite a few on the books this year that I have to fit into my busy workin’ mama schedule. That means I might only have a few minutes to transition from my everyday face to a holiday-party-worthy look.

Thank goodness for the Classic Contour Kit from Pixi. I picked up this handy-dandy kit at Target and, with it, I can make my eyes party-ready in no time flat. Let’s first talk about what I started with. If I don’t have a meeting or event to attend, I keep it pretty low key with my makeup. The school pick-up line doesn’t exactly call for dramatic eyes. Haha! So, concealer, a swipe of lip gloss and maybe a neutral-colored shadow is about all I need. But that won’t do for a party. Oh, no. A party calls for at least a bit of drama.

For my easy holiday-party face, I vamped up my eyes by swiping a pretty sandy hue all over the lids. Next, I blended a slightly darker shade into the creases. And, finally, I applied the darkest shade to my lash line. But I didn’t stop there. I also used the dark brown liner from the Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen x4 set to further define my eyes. And the finishing touches were a pretty pink pout that I created by blending a couple shades from the Pixi Lipstick Taster Kit, blush and mascara.

So, there you have it: a party-ready face that can be done in five minutes. We all have our everyday five-minute face routine, but it doesn’t hurt to have some more tricks up your sleeve for those times you want to look extra special!

    Great tips – thanks! Wish Target hadn’t left Canada so I could pop down to the store and just buy the Pixi products!
