Sarah Sarosh’s Festive Makeup Essentials For An Easy Glam Look

By Khanak Mehta 


The festive season usually calls for a ‘more is more’ philosophy, but that doesn’t always have to translate to your makeup look, too.  

Don’t believe us? Take a cue from beauty influencer Sarah Sarosh as she shares her beginner-friendly makeup must-haves. These products are all you need to create an easy look that doesn’t compromise on the glam factor. Plus, we also got some of her top tips to help you ace your application.  

Take notes.


First things first, get that glow going with this luminous primer from Faces Canada. Sarah likes to apply it on the high points of her cheekbones to set the foundation for a radiant, dewy base.


No foundation? No problem! Ace a lightweight base by strategically applying a medium-coverage concealer instead, like the Maybelline New York Fit Me! Concealer. Sarah suggests using a shade slightly lighter than your skin tone to highlight and conceal at the same time.


Set your base in place with this ultra-matte finish powder – not only will it keep oil at bay all day long, but it will also be your perfect plus one this season for on-the-go touch ups. PS: Don’t forget to apply it on your neck for an even base.


Feeling extra cheeky? Try out this versatile lip and cheek tint for a super-flushed look. Sarah advises tapping it on using your fingers – not only is it super easy, but the warmth will also help you achieve a seamlessly blended look.


Raise your hand if you’re ready to rock a mega-watt glow! This cult-favourite highlighter has a universally flattering shade and is super buildable, so you can take your look from ‘subtle glow’ to ‘glazed donut’ with just one swipe.


Don’t forget to set your hard work in place with a setting spray so that it lasts from drinks to dinner to dancing. Bonus: It also helps mesh all the layers of your makeup together for a smooth, seamless finish.


Keep your brow game on point with the L'Oreal Paris Brow Artist Genius Kit. The powder formula and precise brush allow for targeted application, which makes it great for beginners. If you’re new to this, Sarah suggests following the natural shape of your brows for an easy template.


If you want one eyeshadow palette that does it all, look no further. Makeup Revolution’s Re-Loaded Newtrals 3 palette is a mix of high-impact, neutral mattes and shimmers that are perfect for every occasion. Sarah likes applying the shimmer formulas with her fingers instead of a brush for maximum payoff.


Repeat after us – winged eyeliner does *not* have to be scary. Give your eye makeup game an upgrade with this liquid eyeliner from Faces Canada. Sarah loves it for its thin brush that allows for precise application.


No festive look is complete without lots of lashes, and the quickest way to get there is with Maybelline New York’s iconic Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara. Stick to one coat for a natural finish or add on a few swipes for more impact.

A pink-toned nude lipstick is a fail-safe shade for any makeup look. Sarah loves the Colorbar X Jacqueline Sinful Matte Lip Color in Dirty Date for its intense colour payoff and matte finish. Tap it on with your finger for a diffused, blotted lip.
