Kristin's Holiday Beauty Guide: Six Gorgeous Office Party Hair and Makeup Ideas!

Here are six quick hair and makeup ideas to get holiday party-ready super fast!

Office Holiday Party season is upon us and and there’s always the question of what to wear and how you should appear. Well, our Fashion Editor Katrina has you covered with holiday party fashion suggestions, so here are some quick and easy beauty looks that will take you from desk to holiday hotness in no time flat:

Take a note from Katie Cassidy and go for long, look-at-me lashes with my favorite wow-effect mascara, L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara and a gorgeous pink-peach blushed cheek with NARS Orgasm Blush.

You can also do a sleek updo like Mila Kunis, which always looks incredibly polished and professional. Use a good smoothing styling cream like Aveda Smooth Infusion Styling Prep Smoother, then add a bronze smoky eye look and great gloss – all of which you can find in this great Sephora Favorites Glitz & Glam Shimmer and Shine Makeup Deluxe Sampler.

If you have a chin-length style like Keira Knightley, go for textured curls or waves and a very defined eye.  Get the hair look quickly with a Hot Tools Three-Barrel Waving Iron. The smoky eye is achieved quickly and easily with the Tarte Eye Couture Day-To-Night Eye Palette. Just add mascara and lip gloss and go.

Sleek ponytails like Jennifer Aniston’s always look polished and pretty. Be sure to smooth and secure your style with Ric Pipino HerCut The Ponytail Styling Lotion. A style like this goes perfectly with a pretty red lip gloss, like Guerlain KissKiss Laque.

Anne Hathaway’s classic curled hair and perfectly pink lips are always alluring and lovely. Keep a Conair TS63R MiniPro Ceramic Curling Iron to get the look in a hurry. As for those gorgeous lashes, use a good lengthening mascara like CoverGirl LashBlast Length.

Finally, short-haired gals like Ginnifer Goodwin can always slightly tousle your texture and go for beautifully defined eyes for a gamine look. Redken Water Wax Shine Defining Pomade is a great tool to get the look with mild hold and great shine.  Be sure to make your eyes pop and go with a great red lip with the products found in this Yves Saint Laurent Sephora Exclusive Holiday Set.

Hope this helps! Whatever the look, feel confident and gorgeous and try to stay away from the egg nog…and the mistletoe. :)
