With the holiday season in full swing, spending money on yourself isn’t typically a top priority. After all, this is the season for giving. However there are a few items that should be on your personal shopping list this holiday season.

For starters a great holiday dress that is versatile enough to outfit you for all of your holiday soirees. Second, a proper beauty arsenal to give you a fresh look for the most wonderful time of the year.

I stopped in Walmart to grab a few budget-friendly beauty buys to take me through the holiday season. My goal was to get a handful of products that would help me achieve a festive and vampy holiday look.

Step 1: It’s All About That Base

Keeping your skin prepped and pretty during the dry winter months is key. L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen has been giving me life. It smells great, protects my skin from the sun (people often forget about sunscreen during the winer), hydrates, and keeps me looking young.

Step 2: Play Up Those Peepers

My typical holiday look is all about the bold lip but this season I am flipping things around with a strong winged eye. I was having a hard time finding the perfect eyeliner but after a lot of trial and error, L’Oreal is my savior. The Infallible Blackbuster liquid eyeliner is genius! Seriously. I’m not typically a fan of the felt pen liner but this one gives me the perfect wing with minimal concentration.


A hefty coat (or 3) of mascara really tops off the dark eye look. I used CoverGirl Clump Crusher for long, clump-free lashes.


Step 3: Just a Tint of Lip

I love a red lip but with a strong eye look a bold lip isn’t the best idea. Lucky for me, Revlon’s Super Lustrous lipstick makes for the most perfect sheer lip color. The Rich Girl Red shade gives me my red without being overpowering. It’s the most perfect sheer red.

Step 4: Nail It

Having manicured nails are a key ingredient for a solid holiday beauty look. If you’re like me and don’t always have time to hit the salon for a gel manicure, do it yourself at home! Revlon’s ColorStay Gel Envy gives you gel nails without the hefty price tag. I am loving the shade High Roller for a vampy holiday worthy nail.

Every woman has her own unique way of showing her beauty. At Walmart discover the latest products and most trusted brands at everyday low prices, so you can save money and live beautifully.
