Beauty Prep for Your Holiday Parties

Glittering lights, spiked hot beverages, and a general merriment is in the air, which means the holidays are here. While you might have picked out the perfect outfit for all your festive fetes, to look your best you need to focus on your beauty routine.  Colder weather is leaving skin dry and less luminous, stress and excess alcohol consumption can show up on your face, and all those glasses of red wine leave stains on your pearly whites.

To combat the changing seasons, daily stressors and even just too much partying, Fashion Reverie has rounded up our favorite products to quickly prep for any holiday shindig, so you always look and feel picture perfect!

Puffy Eyes?

If you’ve been working too hard, traveling across the globe, or just operating on less sleep than usual … it’s going to show on your face.  However, Yes To Cucumber’s Depuffing Under Eye Masks are 100% cotton under eye masks, designed to awaken the undereye area while soothing and smoothing. 

“Clinical results show that after 4 weeks of use, over 90% of consumers felt their undereye area was less puffy, smoother and soothed,” states the brand. 

Don’t have 4 weeks to get rid of the dreaded puff? Fear not, store the masks in the fridge, and apply to the area to minimize puffy eyes so they can look their best, quickly! Yes To Soothing Depuffing Under Eye Masks for Sensitive Skin, Cumber $14.99, available at

Less than White Teeth?

We can’t be the only ones who put on our makeup, get dressed and glance in the mirror on the way out the door only to realize our teeth aren’t as white as we’d like.  If you only have 2 minutes to a white smile, Luster 2 Minute Pearl Infused Whitening Kit is for you.  The best part is there are no trays or strips.  This 2-step system where you simply prep with the pearl infused rinse and then apply the serum to your teeth.  The system is enamel-safe, so it does not cause tooth sensitivity, a major drawback of all the strips we used in the past.

Added bonus, with consistent use you can whiten your teeth up to 6 shades in only 3 days! Luster Premium White 2- Minute Pearl Infused Teeth Whitening Kit $11.96, available at

Split Ends?

Keep your tresses looking luxurious and healthy by sealing in moisture and repairing dry, damaged locks with Two Drop Hair Serum by Mounia.  Between the cold weather wicking away moisture and over-styling–we’re looking at you straighteners and curling irons–it’s easy for your hair to turn from silk into hay this time of year.

Two Drop Hair Serum provides all day protection.  Designed to repair hair strands and also strengthen, smooth, and shine, this serum is silicone-free and infused with organic Argan Oil and Prickly Pear Seed Oil.  Apply a tiny amount (2 drops) to instantly make your hair look healthier and party ready!
