quick eye makeup

benefit-hoola-becca-champagne-pop

Albeit owning more eyeshadow palettes than one person could ever need, I don’t play with eyeshadow nearly as often as I should. If I want a quick, easy eye I’ll pat my Becca Champagne Pop highlighter all over my lid (with this divine Wayne Goss brush) and blend Benefit Hoola into the crease. It takes thirty seconds and you can do it with whatever highlighter and bronzer you love — these are just my all-time favorites!

Though I know it will be fleeting, I’m all gung-ho for velvet this season. I recently ordered this red velvet dress for Christmas but it started with these beautiful navy velvet ankle boots. I love navy and black together so it’s easy to wear them quite often.

I can’t recommend this bodysuit enough, the fabric is incredibly smooth and stretchy but it doesn’t stretch out so it remains fitted and really comfortable. I love it with high-waisted pants or layered under sweaters for extra warmth. Paired with a lace skirt, it makes for an easy holiday outfit formula you can mix and match to your liking this season. Shop a few other options in the widget below!
