Look Fabulous for Holiday Festivities

You’ll sparkle in the midst of holiday stress with these simple do-ahead steps.

Entrée? Check. Sides? Check. Wine? Flowers? Dessert? Check, check and check.

Supple skin? Huh. Hip hair? Hmmm. Pretty party makeup? Sigh…

Fabulous holidays require a little planning on the front end. You wouldn’t leave your grocery shopping to the eleventh hour, but how many times have you rushed to finish your hair and makeup as guests are ringing the doorbell?

When it comes to looking your best, early prep can have a big payoff. Follow the timeline below and get ready to shine without spending a lot of time.

One week ahead. No time for the spa? An at-home facial can help you manage acne-prone skin and erase the traces of past breakouts. Esthetician Jennifer Gallegos walks you through the basics in our how-to video.

Five days ahead. Have long hair? Don’t let holiday cooking leave your locks as limp as a wet noodle. Practice styling a simple, sexy bun with our step-by-step guide. Or, if you want to wear your hair down, invest in a dry shampoo such as Giovanni Powder Power to absorb oil and restore volume at a moment’s notice.

Day of the party. Highlight your best features with a natural-look makeup routine that’s easy enough for every day. When it’s time to get the party started, you can always turn up the glam with an extra coat of mascara and bright lipstick or glittering gloss.

Do you have a time-saving trick for holiday hair and makeup? Please share in the comments below.

Will someone be in the stores (Short Pump) at any time to demostrate the natural make-up? If so can you make appointments?

When I opened this video... I was expecting this to be a "natural home-made" at home treatment. But, no.... a store bought solution. With it had been more informative on ways to do facials with home-made ingredients.

It was easy to follow, but def not just home products, but using store products as well. I might try it, but your ads were misleading. Thanks again, love your store and your staff is great and very helpful.

@NANCY - Unfortunately, I was unable to find anything under the events on their store site. It is possible that this might be something through the Whole Body department and did not make it to the event page. You can call the store directly at 804.364.4050 and they'll be happy to help you!
