Thanksgiving Makeup Ideas

“I’m thankful for every moment.”

– Al Green

Can you believe Thanksgiving is on Thursday? Where has this year gone?

So I’m sure every other lifestyle blogger will be talking about Thanksgiving outfit, recipe or decoration ideas this week. But what about makeup ideas?

I know what you’re thinking: who cares about makeup when I’ll just be eating all day? Well if you’re like me and love being a little (or a lot) extra, you’ll want to rock some makeup that will slay Thanksgiving!

Gold Eyeshadow + Red Lips

Alright so gold eyeshadow and red lipstick to me scream Christmas makeup. But why not get ahead of the game? Gold is definitely a great metallic eyeshadow for fall and red lips are perfect any time of the year.

Orange Eyeshadow + Pink Lips

Nothing like gorgeous fall colors on your eyes for Thanksgiving! Orange eyeshadow may seem bold, but tone it down with a neutral lip and you’re in business! I like this color for fall, so if you’re feeling bold, go for an orange.

Shimmery Pink Eyeshadow + Mauve Lips

I always feel like shimmery eyeshadow and the holidays go hand in hand! Think pink with a fun shadow like this one from Morphe and finish it all off with a beautiful mauve lip. A classic holiday look that is guaranteed to be a hit!

Nude Eyeshadow + Gold Lips

If you want to surprise everyone with a fun lip, I like going for a gold lipstick this time of year. It’s more subtle than other bold lipsticks and it works really well for fall. Plus, with a nude eyeshadow, all the attention will be on your lipstick!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with you and your loved ones! Now go enjoy that feast!

My Favorite Ways to Style Tights

“Life is too short to wear boring clothes.”


We’re getting closer and closer to winter, which I’m not thrilled about! But I do love a good pair of tights this time of year. I mean, of course I would prefer to wear dresses and skirts without tights all year long but alas, I live in Colorado.

There’s no reason why you can’t look cute and be warm at the same time. Tights may not be as warm as actual pants, but sometimes you want to wear a dress. So, here are some ways I like to style tights:

Dress + Tights + Heels

Dress – Missguided Tights – Target Heels – hand-me-downs from my boyfriend’s mom (wish I knew where they were from, but here’s another pair I love!)

The dress and tights combo is a classic. Why not add in a pair of chic heels to kick it up a notch? An outfit like this is perfect for a girls night out and trust me…your friends will envy your style!

Top + Skirt + Tights + Flats

Top – Asos Skirt – Urban Outfitters Tights – Target Flats – Forever 21 (no longer available but I linked some similar ones)

Who doesn’t love a cute plaid skirt? If you’re not a heels kinda girl, you can still rock some tights with a simple pair of flats. This is such an easy look and yet it looks super stylish and makes you look really put together.

Romper + Tights + Booties

Romper – Forever 21 (not available anymore, but I linked one that’s scary similar) Tights – Target (bought these last year but I linked a similar pair) Booties – Forever 21 (not available either, but I linked another cute pair)

A romper in winter? That’s crazy, right? Not if you add a cute pair of tights and booties! You can absolutely bring your summer romper into winter…I definitely still wear rompers when it’s cold out.

And for an added bonus, here are a few of my favorite spots to find cute tights:

  • Target – If you’re looking for a good basic pair of tights, Target is your place! I’ve also always had the best luck with tights from Target. They tend to last longer for me…and if you love wearing tights, you know how short their lifespan can be!
  • Modcloth – Ok, so I’ll fully admit that I haven’t yet bought any tights from here yet. But I love looking at their tights! They have so many fun patterns and colors, so check them out if you want to step up your tights game.
  • H&M – Definitely a good spot for inexpensive tights. They do have some fun tights and more basic styles too. Honestly, I feel like you can never go wrong with H&M!

Let’s get ready for tights season in style and go buy yourself a new pair or two!
