One of our very own VERT Beauty estheticians, Lily Krutikova, recently posted about 20 Green Beauty Must-Haves for Holiday Photos and Parties to help guide your Christmas lists! She decided to use many of these products on herself to create a glowy holiday look using some all-natural products.

She started off with Kjaer Weis Foundation in “just sheer” – a warm beige color perfect for lighter-toned skin with pink undertones. She then followed up with ILIA Concealer for added coverage.

PRO TIP! If you’re using powder eyeshadow – put it on first so that you can easily clean up eye shadow dust that gets where it shouldn’t. Lily used cream shadow for this look.

For added glow, she used Kjaer Weis “Radiance” Highlighter, followed by Kjaer Weis “Sun Touched” Blush. Lily then used Alima Pure “Sedona” Radiant Finishing Powder as a bronzer – because it is a fusion of highlighter and translucent loose finishing powder, it brightens the skin and creates natural luminosity. For a glowy holiday look, this lighter alternative to a bronzer provides a glow without any darkening effects.

PRO TIP! Put your highlighter on first, followed by blush – it helps the highlighter to blend more naturally into your skin without covering it up. If you need a little extra, just dab a bit more on over the blush.

Eyebrows were done with EcoBrow “Sharon” – an all-natural eyebrow wax best used for dark blonde to light brunette hair. Eye shadow was minimally applied using RMS “Living Luminizer” MultEYEtasker, which leaves a natural light-reflective, alluring glow when used in the inner eye. It instantly brightens your eyes, enhancing your overall glow with effortless impact. She followed up with Kjaer Weis “Enticing” Cream Shadow, a versatile deep blue with a velvet finish, which she used as a liner. Then ILIA Limitless Lash Mascara – a buildable, flake-free, natural mascara that curls, lengthens and adds volume for healthy-looking lashes. As you can see, her lashes are clearly defined, curled and voluminous, without looking fake or clumpy.

Last but certainly not least, Lily tied the look together with Kjaer Weis “Adore” Lipstick because, duh, holidays = red lips.
