With the holidays in full swing this month Aries, you will find yourself catching a break at work and your social life taking up most of your time. An eventful month can pretty much promises plenty of new fond memories to take with you into the new year.

Hopping from one holiday party requires a makeup look that will last. Queen of social media, Kylie Jenner, released her new Santa Claus North Pole palette and it's packed with all the shades to create shimmering looks of holiday cheer. Dab a bit of the shade Santa’s Workshop all over the lid for a look that’s so naughty it’s nice!

One of the best things about the holiday season is being able to reconnect with family and friends you haven’t seen throughout the year. 2019 has been a great year for you so take the time to share these memories with those you love.

A favorite way of ours to keep hold of memories is through a fragrance. Scents can trigger all sorts of monumental events in your life. So why not round out 2019 in an aromatic way with Aerin’s Amber Musk Eau de Parfum. Warm and inviting this scent envelops you in a fragrance that is equal parts cozy and sexy. Leave behind a fragrant trail as you head into the new year.

This month brings with it many gifts and memories, Virgo. Not all gifts are wrapped up in a box with a bow, sometimes the biggest gifts come in a form you’d least expect. Keep an open mind as this season of giving is surely going to be one to remember. 

You may find yourself underneath the mistletoe with someone special this month and if that’s the case, you'll want to make sure your lips are soft and ready. Both nourishing and pretty, Kosas’s Wet Lip Oil Gloss will provide lips with just the right amount of moisture and color.

Clarity is headed your way this month, Libra. After a busy last couple of weeks tying things up before the end of the year, you’ll finally be able to catch a breath. Take this quiet time to enjoy the holidays and spend it with the ones you love. 

It’s normal for all the past few weeks stress to catch up with your skin. To avoid post-stress breakouts and fatigue use products that not only moisturize but help replace needed nutrients. Earth to Skin is one of our newest obsessions and in our opinion Walmart’s best kept secret. Their just under $7 Honey Manuka Calming Face Cleanser reminds of high-end face washes because of its ability to aid in clearing skin without drying out the skin. Head into the new year with a radiant and clear complexion!

As Scorpio season comes to an end it’s time to start plotting yours season of hibernation. Not one to venture out into the cold for a night of socializing you’d much rather curl up in front of the fire with a good book. Surround yourself with like-minded people who would prefer a low-key night with food and drinks rather than a wild night out. 

Since staying in is your cup of tea you might as well take this time to up your skincare game. Farmacy’s new Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry is not only hydrating and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark circles, but it also delivers an instant radiance to the eye area. Apply AM and PM for the most noticeable results!

With work winding down for the year you will find yourself with some much-needed extra free time. Get outside to see the magic of all the Christmas lights and store decorations. As the month goes on, party invites will start trickling in and your social schedule will book up quickly.
