Hassle Free Makeup: Thanksgiving Edition

With Thanksgiving only a few days away we know makeup is the last thing on your mind. You have more important things to worry about – who’s picking up the honey baked ham, are you going to have to sit through Uncle Larry’s show and tell of his stamp collection again this year, how can I salvage this Pinterest fail of a table scape? We get it! The holidays bring so much magic but can also be slightly stressful at times. We want to help by giving you one less thing to think about. These tips and tricks will help you effortlessly nail your makeup look this Thanksgiving so you can focus on what matters most.


Setting Silk will be your best friend (if it’s not already) this holiday season. Its versatility is just one of the many incredible qualities that will keep you reaching for this product again and again. Apply before your foundation to help minimize the appearance of pores and then again after you apply foundation to help set it. Applying it in a light circular motion over top your Pearl Powder Mineral Foundation, blush, and/or bronze helps extend the life of these products while giving you a smudge resistant barrier. You definitely want to keep this product on hand because you can also use it throughout the day to help absorb any excess oils that appear on your skin. You can even use your Setting Silk over Root Vegan Shea Butter Lipsticks or Pretty Balms for a matte lip finish!


Stick with what you know. Big events like Thanksgiving can be a tempting time to want to try a dazzling new look, and if you have the time we say go for it. However, if you want a hassle free makeup look it’s best to stick to what you know and love. Try experimenting with a fun eyeliner color or dark lip. With a damp angled brush and any Root eyeshadow you can create a really unique look that will easily help you stand out while still looking fresh and fun. To take it even further, try using a metallic shade like So Bronze or Jasmine to add a little holiday shimmer.

Smart phones allow every family member to be a photographer. To look your best in every candid shot, try applying your makeup a tad bit darker than you normally would. It’s better to start with less and then build to the desired color. Don’t forget to enhance your brows with Brow Powder or Brow Pomade, and your cheekbones, brow bone, nose, & cupids bow with one of Root’s stunning highlighters, Rose Glow or White Gold.  

With Thanksgiving only a few days away we realize you may not be able to place an order in time (although we do offer 2nd day and next day shipping). All of Root’s products have serious staying power so no matter what you already have in your makeup bag, if it’s Root, use it! You will be happy you did because at the end of the day when Uncle Larry finally packs up his stamp collection your makeup will still be flawless.
