It’s that time of year again, when the invitations for pot-lucks, office parties and holiday soirees start to pile up.

After you’ve picked out the perfect party dress, it’s time to glam it up even further with some fun holiday make-up. That doesn’t mean you have to tart yourself up with glitter and overdone make-up, but it is a great time of year to experiment.

We shared some of our favorite beauty picks this season with the Examiner, to help you get a head start on your holiday look. I’m a big fan of multipurpose beauty products, after all those little cocktail clutches don’t hold much stuff. This mini cheek stain kit from Tarte is great for all-over color. It comes with three of their bestselling color sticks and a festive cocktail ring.

The easiest way to glam up your party look is to add some shine and sparkle. Metallics are huge this season, silvers, golds, and highlighters add subtle sheen perfect for evening. I love the “Gold List Kit” by Smashbox, which comes with everything you need to get a golden glow, all in a travel-ready bag.
