Photo face ready

The holidays are in a near arm’s reach while your weekend schedule is completely saturated with holiday festivities and celebrations. With friends and family around, cameras are snapping and selfies are being made. Tis the season, right? But lets just pause for a moment, how many pictures are you taking to get your best angle or how many filters are you adding to brighten up your skin color? Makeup is a make or break for holiday pictures, so lets help a girl out.

Lauren and Lindsay from ‘The BeautyPair’, two twin sisters, are educated makeup artists thriving in the industry. They deliver flawless looks and effortless tips that even a beginner can accomplish. I asked them to help out my readers with makeup tips for upcoming family photos as well as holiday party makeup styles. The BeautyPair filmed a video to explain their tips and reasoning behind each one.


The Tips:

  • Three holiday trends this year are a red bold lip, shimmered eyes, and clean, simple skin.
  • With “glowing skin” on trend, make sure you are only emphasizing on the high points of your face- cheekbones, bridge of your nose, and the center of your forehead. Avoid the highlighter elsewhere.
  • Stay away from over doing it! Pair a bold lip with a neutral eye or bold eye with a nude lip. Do NOT do both.
  • Colored lips or keep them tamed? Neutral is always classic but if you decide to add a pop keep it with a classic red.



I hope you guys found these tips useful for your upcoming photography sessions and holiday party selfies!
