The Perfect Holiday Look + Tips For Making It Last & Taking It Off // eyeliner wings & pretty things

One of my favorite thing about the holidays, aside from family and food and giving gifts, is the fact that glitter becomes incredibly more prevalent in stores and in makeup looks. There’s also ample opportunity to really amp up that glam factor and I am HERE for that.

With great glitter and bold lips comes great difficulties with making the look last and taking it off. Super dry “butthole” lips and glitter that never seems to come off are too real, but today I’m going to help you solve these dilemmas while looking fabulous.
