TODAY style editor and all-around professional girlfriend Bobbie Thomas shares some unique finds and fixes to keep you glowing through the holidays, whether you're staying home or traveling.
1. Make your lip color last longer
During this social season, it's all too easy for that pretty red lipstick you finally dared to wear to end up on someone's cheek, white shirt or, of course, on your own teeth. Solve this problem with a smudge-proof sealer like Lip Chic, which has been a top-selling product in Europe for 65 years. The 100-percent botanical formula is invisible and keeps lip color set and vivid until you wash it off. So you can eat, drink, kiss and be merry without a worry ($18.50, alconeco.com).
2. Look more alert
Now there is a quick fix for those who wake up with yellow or dull eyes. A French beauty secret, Collyre Bleu Eyedrops are now widely used by celebrities and makeup professionals to brighten and whiten the eyes. The blue hue helps visually combat discoloration and can even lend a bit of a sparkle. Check in with your doctor or optometrist before using ($20.97, amazon.com).
3. Amp up, lash out
If you love your mascara but don't adore the comb that comes with it, there's actually a simple fix available. Sephora sells a 12 pack of disposable mascara wands in an assortment of shapes to suit your desired lash style. You get three lengthening, three curling, three volumizing and three defining combs. Hygienic (for sharing), and perfect for anyone looking to boost their lashes ($7, sephora.com).
4. Tame frizz, flyaways and hat-hair
Kérastase has just launched nourishing sheets called Carré Lissant. That's right: like dryer sheets for your hair! One quick swipe over your strands can help smooth static, fight frizz and block humidity while you're out and about. Packaged in a portable purse-friendly case, the sheets are only offered for a limited time, so scoop them up now to stock up for the winter ($28.50, kerastase-usa.com).
5. Mix and match on the go
For quick, overnight trips, it can be a pain to schlep your entire makeup collection with you. Beauty Blender's Sur.face Pro is a small mixing palette (with a tight sealing lid) that you can fill with a few dabs of concealer, foundation, moisturizer and more. You can swirl them together to create (and save) your own custom formulations, or just revel in the fact that all your makeup is in one tiny pan ($40, beautyblender.net).
