Cheat Sheet: Here Are Tried-and-Tested Hacks To Up Your Christmas Party Makeup Game!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year—until you realize you’ve forgotten to prep up for the office Christmas party! And while your last-minute outfit could be on point, there’s only one thing to worry about: makeup. So, ditch those two-hour tutorials already! Achieving your beauty goals shouldn’t take that long with these makeup shortcuts!

1. Focus on the brows

You’ve probably heard “Kilay is life” one too many times already. That’s because it’s true! Defining your brows could easily set your look—accentuating the eyes and shaping your face. And remember, blend, blend, blend! You’d want it to look natural.

2. Use a blush stick instead of powder

You would need a brush to apply blush powder, so just drop it. The less tools, the better. Go for your trusty blush stick instead. Trust us; the tint lasts longer too! Be careful, though, not to overdo it. 

3. Highlight with petroleum jelly

We’re pretty sure you have a jar of petroleum jelly lying around the house. It’s time to take it out of the dresser! To give your skin a glow up, use it as a sub for highlighters and apply it to the areas you want to pop, like your cheekbones and nose bridge. As a bonus, it keeps your skin moisturized, too!

4. If you do need to remove or redo anything, use petroleum jelly!

Ladies, we cannot stress this enough: Petroleum jelly can practically fix any makeup problem! Eyeliner or lip excess marks? Apply the jelly to a cotton swab and wipe the residue off!

And the list goes on! Petroleum jelly is a gift that keeps on giving! Dry lips? Petroleum jelly. Split ends? Petroleum jelly. Our go-to product? Vaseline®, of course. It’s dermatologist recommended, triple-purified, and purity-guaranteed! Plus, it’s basically available anywhere—drugstores, grocery stores, you name it! So if you want to be a pro in the makeup department for your Christmas party, stick with the basic: Keep a jar of Vaseline® 100% Pure Petroleum Jelly handy.

By keeping these beauty hacks in mind, and being totally ready for this (petroleum) jelly, you’ll definitely ace your makeup look this season.
