For beauties in the United States, Thanksgiving is literally around the corner. And while most people focus on what delicious dishes will be placed on the dinner table, or what floats will ride down Broadway for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, some people are more focused on what to wear for the annual holiday.
And that’s especially true if you’re a lucky attendee who doesn’t get drafted to help out in the kitchen. Or, if you’re dinner hopping, making multiple stops in one day to greet as many people as possible. And after the last year where holiday festivities were muted, it’s understandable if you want to show up and show out this Thanksgiving!
Of course, your first step is going to be deciding what you want to wear. For most people, this is going to depend on where you’re going and who’s hosting. We all have that one friend or relative who treats every get-together as an opportunity to wear the latest and greatest fashions or lives for gorgeous formal wear. Meanwhile, others love a more laid-back affair that pairs well with watching or playing football.
Once you’ve picked your outfit, it’s time to think about accessories — and this also includes your makeup look. Thankfully, beauty looks are fluid and even if you’re in a relatively relaxed environment, if you want to opt for a glam makeup style, you won’t feel out of place. Consider these perfect choices if you need some inspiration:
The Smoky Eye
The smoky eye is a truly timeless option that’s all about creating drama. It pairs well whether you’re wearing jeans or more formal attire. To really nail this look, you’ll want to have the right tools for the job — which includes quality eye brushes like our Professional Eye Brushes Set.
The nice thing about smoky eyes is that you don’t have to stick to a black eyeshadow. Opt for a pop of color by creating this eye look using brown, green, blue, or even purple. Match it to your outfit for a unique effect. Be sure to use an eyeshadow blending brush to smudge your lower lids and outer corners.
A Natural Beat
If a smoky eye is a bit too dramatic for you, then you can’t go wrong with a natural look. While you’ll still have visible makeup, the look won’t be as dramatic. To achieve this look, you’ll need to decide if you want to apply foundation, and if so which type. Whichever foundation you select _ powder, cream, or liquid — our Kabuki brushes or Stippling brush are perfect for quickly applying and buffing your foundation to create a flawless, seamless effect. Top it off with a bit of blush, a lined eye, and your choice of mascara or natural-looking false lashes. Finish it with a nude lip in either a matte or gloss finish.
A Fall Inspired Look
Autumn is all about the leaves turning as the season changes. And in most cases, you’re going to be surrounded by orange and red leaves before they fall off the trees. Opt for a warm-inspired palette of colors and layer orange, red, and even warm-toned brown eyeshadow shades to create a beautiful eye. Pick a warmer coral or berry hue for your blush, and top it off with a bold red lip.
