I’m already stressing out about the holidays. Decorations up? Got that one covered. Holiday cards ordered? Oops! Not yet. Presents bought? Hhhmm…not sure how I’ll ever motor through the entire list.  Whatever. What I’m really worried about: What will I wear? I’ve started canvassing my closet, admittedly seeing what will fit. (Darn, why didn’t I lose those 10 pounds in October and November?!) No worries, I’ll turn to the good ‘ol standby… my little black dress, right?? NO??!! Apparently not.  According to the style experts from Celebutante Sisters, it’s no longer about the LBD, or little black dress. No, ladies. This year,  you should be glammin’ it up in grey! Want some style tips on how to pull it off, no matter what your style? READ this…

Holiday Trends by The Makeup Room
Holiday Trends by The Makeup Room

OK, I've done the research, checked out the clothing racks, combed makeup counters and came up with yet another perfect black dress, dark hose, and 3" pumps. Now it’s time to dazzle my boyfriend with my makeup, and feel great because I look great! And what’s my makeup secret tool? Palettes! Love holiday palettes! There's a plethora of colors and textures to choose from in shimmer, glimmer, frosty ice, and matte. Each has its own magical story, with soft light blues, lots of bronze, gold, silver and matte dark shades to create a smoky eye. Use black pencils for liner and set it with dark shadows either in brown, black, deep blue, bronze, purple or green... whatever works for the color scheme of choice.

Try a bright eye, sultry and imaginative, with an addition of extra mascara and fake lashes on the top lashline. When it comes to lashes, they are still hot in spectacular colors, with glitter, sequins, and feathers adorning your lids and making application easy with cool applicators that hold the entire lash allowing you to press right into your (already lined) lash line.

Your lips? Red, baby red! In matte, satins, creams and glosses. If your skin has a red undertone, use a berry red. Complexions with yellow undertone may look better with a bronze red or a fire engine red tone. Hint: add a drop of powder to the lips. Apply lipstick and blot.  Then add another coat of lip color. Speaking of reds, with my light skin and red undertone even with auburn hair a berry red looks best.

So, what are you wearing and how are you going to pull it off with makeup for the holidays? Send your ideas and take a picture!

I am so fortunate that I get to write a post that goes live on Thanksgiving Day.  This year has been an amazing journey with the normal ups and downs that are a part of being alive.   Overall though, I can’t/won’t complain.  My good moments have outweighed my bad moments.  I definitely have so many reasons to be thankful.

Rather than write about the latest fashion, beauty or other type of product, today I just want to focus on gratitude.  As such, here are the top reasons that Thanksgiving 2009 is special for me:

1.    My faith: Sometimes, when I read the news (i.e. about little Shaniya Davis)  or hear of random things that happen to wonderful people (i.e. Anissa) it makes me depressed for a moment.  If I did not think that there was more to life than this existence here on earth, I truly believe that I would be a very melancholy person.

2.    My family: What can I say?  I hit the jackpot.  I both love AND like my husband and two sons.  (You know that it is possible to love someone and not really like their character, right?)  Anyway, I am happy that I get to start and end the vast majority of my days with them.

3.    My friends: As I get older, I appreciate my true friends so much more.  Age teaches me the difference between good acquaintances and true friends.  I am fortunate to have many of the former and a special few of the latter.  People who know me completely, but love my unconditionally/in spite of me  I cannot ask for more.  There are few greater gifts than that.

Now it is your turn…who (or what) are you most thankful for this year?
