The season of glitz and glam excites and inspires us! As you prepare for enchanting evenings of holiday parties and celebrations, be ready to take center stage all dolled up. Holidays are a time to play dress up and feel elegant and feminine. Today is your day, so go for it! Be dazzled, feel dreamy, and look stunning. Turn heads as you walk into that party. Shimmer and shine with jewels and embellished accessories.

My model Ashley looks glam and all dolled up for the season wearing a beautiful, festive holiday party dress. So let the holidays begin in style. What’s on your holiday glam list? Are you ready to be the glamour girl you were meant to be? A holiday dream begins with you and what you want yourself to look like. Feel confident, and step out of your comfort zone, even if it is for one evening. As you prepare for an enchanting evening of holiday bliss, dress like you mean it. Pair all things feminine with pearls. Red always makes a statement. Dangling pearls are a wonderful added touch.

Here are some of my holiday tips for hair, makeup, and fashion. Pretty jeweled clips and other accessories will be seen all over this season. Be dazzled and jeweled up with a pretty brooch or fancy rhinestone pin or classic pearl earrings.

Hair: Take a beautiful style to new heights by adding some fullness and height to the crown. A soft twisted chignon is controlled but also has a messy feel to it. This timeless style has a modern finish and always looks stunning for the holidays. Pull it off to the side for extra drama. The chignon is a classic and elegant up style for any occasion.

Makeup: Seasonal makeup can be exciting, so go bold or soft, whatever you decide. We went with a bold look for Ashley. After all, it is the time of year for stand out makeup. Focus on the eyes. Don’t hold back with your eyeshadow: full eyelids covered and spotlighted with deep tones of red burgundy and hints of gold and copper.

Luscious lips in berry: line the lip with a soft liner using a lip brush, color the entire lip with a deep berry blush wine tone and blend out together.  Introducing Just Jackie Lips Shimmer Matte—drape your lips in glamour with beautiful bold shades that dry to a long-wearing matte finish. We now carry a variety of luscious lip products called “Just Jackie Essentials,” launching this season. You can check them out on our website,

Flawless skin always starts with great skincare. Cleanse, tone, and moisturize daily for best results. Makeup is great but even better with flawless skin underneath it.

Cleanse, moisturize, condition, prep, style, and finish—just some of the ways to start your day. Be bold, be beautiful, be glamorous in any way you know how. But most importantly, be yourself. This holiday season takes time for you. Once the presents are bought and the tree is trimmed, step back, and breathe. Then get all dolled up, and celebrate you. Cheers to you!

I hope this New Year brings you many glamorous days. Feel beautiful inside and out at Jacqueline’s!  Until next time…live your dreams!
