Let Your Melanin Shine! Simple Glitzy Holiday-Inspired Makeup Tutorial Using Drugstore Products

This is a sponosored post on behalf of Tapinfluence but all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. 

When I think of the holiday makeup I think of tons of glitz and shine. But as a work-from-home mom, your girl doesn’t have a ton of time for makeup application. More often than not, when I’m doing my makeup I tend to keep my eyeshadow application on the simple side. I’m also getting a kick out finding everything I need at the drugstore.

By the way, shout out to Proctor & Gamble for their My Black Is Beautiful Initiative.  They are actively working to change the narrative about current standards of beauty, and include women who look like me in the conversation. Our black is indeed beautiful, so it’s refreshing to see brands like Covergirl carrying affordable makeup that works on our varying skin tones. Click HERE to learn more about the initiative.

    One day the Makeup Gawds will grant me the talent of putting on lashes cause I suck. I love the red with the gloss. Wouldn’t think to do that cause I’m afraid of the “tew much” look, but you’ve convinced me it can be done just right.
