It's hard not to think of my family back in Southern California & Mexico, especially this time of year, when we would be getting together every weekend, having posadas, and eating lots of yummy food{pozole,tamales, flan}. I miss the days when we lived in Utah & were only a half a days drive! With Madison only a month old, traveling outside of Ohio this season is out of the question. But, I'm hopeful next year we will finally make it out there for the holidays, Madison will be a year then which should make traveling much easier{& safer for her}. In the meantime, we still plan to attend our fair share of holiday parties & maybe even throw our own party. Wether you are attending a low key holiday gathering, Thanksgiving party or a posada, this tutorial will make you feel put-together & beautiful! And the best part is it can be done in just five short minutes!
With three little girls under six{& one being a newborn}: quick, quality & effortless products are what I'm all about. If you're anything like me, than you are the last to get ready, because the majority of your time goes towards getting the rest of your family ready. And now that we approach the holiday season, your time will only minimize even more. But, don't worry I have an easy holiday look using Milani cosmetics that will make getting ready just a tad bit easier. Plus, keep reading to find out how you can win a huge CVS giftcard;)! 

For this look I used all Milani cosmetics: Supreme Kohl Kajal (Black), Stay Put Brow (Brunette), 
Eye Shadow(Bella Ivory) & (Bella Black) , Color Statement Lipstick (Brandy Berry), Eye shadow Primer, bronzer (Fake Tan), Rose Blush (Tea Rose)

1. Countour- I started by applying bronzer in a "W" motion to add some definition to my cheekbones. I start at top with my temples, then go to my cheekbones and then down towards my jawline.
2. Next, I add blush to give the face a healthy & vibrant glow.
3. Using the brush end of the Stay put Brow tool, you lightly fill in any gaps in your brows, then go back and use the spiral end and brush your brows upwards to more fully blend the color.
4. Next add a bold lip{like Brandy Berry} to bring some color to your face.

5. To make your eye shadow last all day, prime Eyelids with Eye shadow Primer.
6. Then brush on a natural eye shadow like Milani's Bella Ivory
7. Next you'll add the black eye shadow in a side "V" shape along your crease line and eyelash line, then blend.
8. Lastly you will tight line upper & lower lash line with the supreme kohl kajal.

I think my favorite part about this look & Milani cosmetics is that It offers great coverage while still feeling natural.
