It’s official- we’ve moved from sweater weather to parka weather, and the holiday season is upon us.

You’re gonna need a few things to get through this: a giant fuzzy blanket, a super-sized mug, cute cold weather outfits, and a fool-proof makeup look to rock at all your holiday parties.  We’ve got you covered for the last one. For the rest, we recommend Target.

We at e.l.f. headquarters (not to brag, but yes, it is everything you’re imagining) created this look for the makeup lovers who value low effort, high reward.

You can get this look in 10 minutes or less by focusing on three key features: full, feathered brows, glowy highlight, and vampy lips.

Here’s the abridged version using only three products, that you can do in your car, on the subway, or in the office bathroom (you gotta do what you gotta do, the holidays are a busy time).

Step 1: Fluff, define, and set the brows in place with Beautifully Bare Sheer Tint Brow Gel in Clear. Using upward strokes, take your time to position each hair for a full, feathered effect. It may seem minor, but brow hair placement is a game changer.

Step 2: Highlight to the heavens with our new Highlighting Pearl Paint. We designed this highlighter to blend easily with fingertips, and give that wet skin effect with added shimmer. Pat this on your cheekbones, brow bone, and cupid’s bow (that teardrop shape above your upper lip) to look like the snow princess that you are.

Step 3: Finish the look with a statement lip to mark your wine glass- or your crush. We recommend the Velvet Matte Lipstick in Deep Burgundy. Carefully trace the lipstick all the way to the outer edge of your lips for a plumping effect.

It doesn’t get much easier than that, folks. Use all that extra time getting ready to buy a hostess gift, write thank you notes, or actually get to the party on time. Or save that last one for your New Year’s Resolution. No judgement!
