Makeup should always complement what you're wearing. And with an adept hand, it completes your look — as if you weren't even trying.

As we are on the topic of flawless holiday looks, I must mention a few of my favorite beauty products that grab attention any day of the week, not the mention during the holiday season!

What I Can't Live Without:
  • Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eye Shadow in Fantasme lightly dabbed over your favorite eye shadow
  • Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color (pick your poison, it's the best eyeliner on the market for ease and staying power)
  • Chantecaille Faux Cils Mascara (goes on big with easy layering ability)
  • *Kevyn Aucoin Volume Mascara (tiny brush to get every last lash — and it coats/tubes lashes so no flakes or smudges)
  • Chantecaille Gel Brow Liner Pencil (easy to create a smoky eye and the gel makes it smudgeproof)
  • *Natura Bissé The Cure Sheer Cream (gives the illusion of undeniably perfect skin)
  • *BECCA Bronzing Skin Perfector (add to areas of your face where you want a sunkissed glow)
  • Laura Mercier Lip Stain in Scarlet (throw some lip balm over top for Hollywood glam — I prefer this over Lip Maestro)
  • Essie Leading Lady nail polish (holiday favorite)

*Available at Jeffre Scott in Charlotte
