I am super excited for the holidays this year. My little daughter is growing up fast, and she will most likely remember the festivities. I am very focused on making this a memorial holiday season for her. This singular focus gives me little to no time for myself. That is why I put together a 5-minute holiday makeup look that allow me to put on a beautiful face without cutting into the festivities.


I start by using Milani Even-Touch Powder Foundation Compact in Shell on my face and layered to cover up on any blemishes or red spots. Also, use Milani Tea Rose Powder Blush to highlight the apples of my cheeks.


After my face is all finished, I prime my eyelids with Eyeshadow Primer from the lashline up to the crease. This makes the eyeshadow last longer and pop against my skin. Allow it to dry for a moment while I fill in my eyebrows with Stay Put Brow in natural starting with the outer brown working my way inward so that most of the product is used on the outer brow. You want to use a light hand and little amount of product on the inner brow.


 You can stand out by filling in your brows like a pro. The precise brush gives you the control so that you can have intense definition.



Using an eye shadow makeup brush, add the gold shadow from lash line to crease with a tissue under your lower lashline. Using a clean blending brush with no color on it to blend the Milani Bella Gold Gel Eyeshadow so that there isn’t a hard gold line.


Using navy shadow, make a triangle pressing the Milani Bella Navy Gel Powder Eyeshadow against the corner of your lid.


Using the Milani Navy Fierce Foil Eyeliner, make a precise line that goes along your lashes as tight as possible. Use the same liner on the water line, connecting the lashes together. Line the lower last line as close as possible.


The Fierce Foil Eyeliner is a next-level eyeliner that gets its richness from a black base that blasts the luminosity, creating a shiny, shimmery special effect that lights up your eyes. It is available in four chic shades – Black Gold Foil, Brown Foil, Purple Foil and Navy Foil and comes with a custom pro brush that deposits color exactly where you want it.


Apply black Milani Grandissimo Incredible Volume Mascara to finish off the eye look.



Finish off your look with a neutral lip, Color Statement Lipstick in Bahama Beige. A super-luxe, grown-up girl lipstick, it delivers true instant colour in a single swipe. Laced with vitamins A and C to hydrate and nourish, this collection is all about giving you a wide range of color options.


I found everything for this look at CVS in the Milani section. Everything was easy to find!
