If you are on the go for the holidays, consider toting an emergency holiday beauty kit.  At any time having some go to items for touch ups and mishaps is a good idea but during a time of holiday gatherings, parties, concerts, recitals and family functions, you may find it essential.

We compiled a virtual beauty bag on Pinterest that is stocked with American made beauty products and fashion fixes.  My must haves from the list are, breath mints, perfume rollerball, lip balm and finishing hair spray.

  • Breathmints – obvious choice, obvious reasons.
  • Perfume rollerball – allows for fragrance touch ups without scenting an entire car or room.  Just roll on how much or little you need to keep you smelling good.
  • Lip balm – cold weather creates chapped lips and no one likes that.
  • Hair spray – fix an updo, tame fly aways, smooth frizz or add a little umph.  Hair life saver.

In all the hustle and bustle of the season we sometimes don't think about what we will be doing with ourselves until the very last minute.  Don't let it get you frazzled.

Try a new look with your makeup to add a little allure to your ensemble.  Holiday makeup, subtle to glam.

Nothing new in your closet?  Try mixing it up with a scarf for a new spin on a favorite piece.  Update your wardrobe with a scarf.

Style your hair in a new way.  Dry shampoo, not just for greasy hair.    Tips for styling with dry shampoo.

I hope everyone is enjoying all the sights and sounds of the season!
