This year, we’re keeping our holiday celebrations cozy, intimate and local. While a 4-person dinner party with your “pod” might feel more casual than a traditional multi-generational affair, that doesn’t mean you can’t embrace the festive season — especially with a makeup look.
Here, beauty influencer Maya Galore walks us through a monochromatic Thanksgiving makeup look featuring holiday-inspired cranberry hues, glowing skin and of course, plenty of skin-loving mineral makeup. This look is perfect for a Friendsgiving celebration, though it can easily be worn all season long.
“When you’re just hanging out with friends and eating all day, you want to make sure your makeup still looks the very best,” says Maya. We couldn’t agree more. Follow along with her clean beauty tutorial below and look your very best at Friendsgiving — and beyond.
What to use to create a Friendsgiving look:
BROW MASTER Sculpting Pencil (Maya’s shade is Coffee)
BOUNCE & BLUR Eyeshadow Palette in Dusk
Expert Shadow & Liner Brush
BARESKIN Complete Coverage Serum Concealer (Maya’s shade is Dark to Deep)
Shade & Diffuse Eye Brush
ORIGINAL Loose Mineral Foundation SPF 15 (Maya’s shade is Golden Dark 25)
Beautiful Finish Brush
STRENGTH & LENGTH Serum-Infused Mascara
GEN NUDE Powder Blush in shade You Had Me at Merlot
Blooming Blush Brush
MINERALIST Hydra-Smoothing Lipstick in shade Purpose
How to create a Friendsgiving look:
-Maya likes to begin with her eyebrows, to help create a frame for her face. Begin by using the pencil side of BROW MASTER Sculpting Pencil to fill in your brows, then flip it over to brush through with the spoolie side.
-Using the BOUNCE & BLUR Eyeshadow Palette in Dusk, pick up the shade Crimson Sunset with your fingertip and apply all over your eyelid. Then, create a winged eyeliner using the Expert Shadow & Liner Brush and the shade Purple Twilight.
-Next, conceal under eye circles with the BARESKIN Complete Coverage Serum Concealer.
-Create an even, glowing complexion with ORIGINAL Loose Mineral Foundation SPF 15. Apply with the Beautiful Finish Brush using our SWIRL, TAP, BUFF method; swirling the loose minerals warms them up so they apply with a creamy, second-skin texture.
-Complete your eye look by applying the shade Purple Twilight to your lower lash line and highlight the inner corners of your eyes with the shade Harvest Moon.
-A few coats of STRENGTH & LENGTH Serum-Infused Mascara brings the whole eye look together. Maya suggests using the side bristles to help define lashes.
-Next, use the Blooming Blush Brush to sweep GEN NUDE Powder Blush in shade You Had Me at Merlot onto the apples of your cheeks. The formula is buildable, so you can intensify the color to your liking.
-Finish this monochromatic look with a seasonal cranberry lip. Apply MINERALIST Hydra-Smoothing Lipstick in the shade Purpose for highly pigmented, nourishing coverage.
