While this season is all about food, family and friends … and food again, don’t forget about another important holiday factor — beauty! There are days when we inherently stuff ourselves until we can’t move and other days where mom makes us dress up because family members are on their way. We understand the need to look like a “put together” adult when this special occasion comes up and you might be feeling a bit unprepared. To help guide you through your time back home, we’ve rounded up a few of our holiday favorites from gift guides to festive beauty looks to make your holiday life a little easier!
