The Best Cosmetology Beauty Tips for Thanksgiving Dinner

makeup tipsThanksgiving is a special time when you gather with your loved ones and celebrate various achievements you’ve had during the year.

This is a time you’ll be meeting with family members you have not seen for months so you need to look your best.

Besides picking out a fashionable dress, you need to choose suitable makeup that will complement your outfit. If you want to stand out, here are some beauty tips that will ensure you look and feel great.

Choose the Right Hairstyle

Choose a simple and fashionable hairstyle that you can easily re-do just in case it gets messed up. On a day that involves numerous trips to and from the kitchen, you may want to settle for a hairstyle that will allow you to engage in various activities without having to get messed up. A simple ponytail is fashionable and will go a long way to transform your whole look.

Try Hair Coloring

Give your hair a new lease on life by changing your hair color. If you have blue eyes or a cooler skin tone, an ashy brown color would complement your complexion. Subtle highlights have a natural effect and makes hair appear fuller.

Makeup Tips

This is not the best time to wear heavy makeup. There are a lot of activities involved and you will not have the time touch up your makeup. You are likely to sweat and you don’t want to look horrible in washed down makeup. Here are simple makeup tips you may want to consider.


Watch your salt intake on the days leading to Thanksgiving dinner. Salt causes water retention and this may cause eye bags and dark circles to appear under your eyes making them look puffy. Choose subtle eye shadow to highlight natural beauty and conceal flaws. If you have pale skin, you can opt for coral and peach shades while those with olive or dark skin tones can choose bronzers. Do not forget to style your brows because they define your eyes.


This is not the perfect day to go for bold lipsticks because there is a lot of eating and drinking and you don’t have time to constantly re-apply your lipstick. Instead, you can choose matte burgundy lipstick or berry colored lipstick which is stylish and will not require multiple applications.


Before applying makeup, you want to make sure that your skin is clean. Clean skin is crucial if you want to achieve natural beauty using makeup. It also makes the application process easier. For glowing beautiful skin, mix almond flour and honey until you get a scrub like consistency. Apply the mixture on your face and hands and let it sit for 5 minutes before rinsing it off.
