2 Last-Minute Hair And Makeup Looks To Hit The Holiday Party Circuit In Style

by Stephanie Montes

Getting ready for a last-minute holiday party can be a nightmare–fussing with a hot blow-dryer before running into the rainy night and packing on the makeup just leads to a frizzy, sweaty mess. Whether you’re preparing for a family dinner or an evening on the town with friends, ditch the drama and get your look under control with a fuss-free hairstyle and a polished makeup sitch. It’s easy and you’ll look as fab as our favorite It girls in no time—sans the frizz and sweat.


The 1-2 Beauty Punch


Messy Bob + Smoky Eye

When you're in a hurry, use a large round brush to blow out the front pieces of hair and ends to look effortless and messy in a cool way. For your makeup, focus on the eyes and you will instantly look pulled together. Line the eyes with a black kohl liner and smudge with your finger. Pack on the mascara and keep the rest of your makeup neutral and matte.

Cool-Girl Waves + Red Lipstick

You can never go wrong with textured waves—especially when frizz-inducing rain is in the picture. Dust off your favorite sea salt spray and scrunch while applying to damp hair. Pull your look together with a statement red lip and pair it with dewy skin and groomed brows.
