Your Holiday Beauty Survival Kit

There are a lot of things we love about the holiday party season. Getting to dress up, rocking red lipstick on the regular, seeing all of our friends make total asses of themselves while wearing reindeer antlers and Santa hats — those are all very fun and enjoyable things. Less enjoyable are the beauty calamities that befall us this time of year.
From battling dry skin to blustery winter weather that seems hellbent on ruining your meticulously crafted smoky eye, the holidays can be downright brutal on your beauty game.
That's where we come in: We've rounded up 30 holiday essentials that will have you prepped, polished, and looking fly this winter. Top to toes, we've got you covered.
