Get ready for a holiday dinner in no timeMany women getting ready for a large holiday gathering will likely spend hours primping to ensure a perfect appearance. But what if you won't be arriving at your destination until the last minute? Whether you have to head to the celebration from the office or the airport, there are a few simple ways to quickly create a festive look.

Emphasize your eyes or your lips – no need to do both. Red lipstick is the easiest way to infuse your appearance with the holiday spirit. According to Allure magazine, women should apply a blue-toned, long-wear formula that will last throughout the shindig.

If a bold pout isn't your cup of tea, opt for metallic eyeshadow. The news source recommends silver for a cool skin tone, and gold for a warmer complexion. Finish with a few coats of black mascara and your peepers are sure to pop.

Finally, while you may think that it's the perfect time of year to add color to your face, steer clear of blush and use a bit of bronzer.

"When temperatures drop, your cheeks turn naturally rosy and blush can make you look red," the news provider reports. "Instead, add a hint of warmth with a bronzer on the bridge of your nose, along your temples, and cheeks."
