1. Sweater Weather Scents
“I love updating my fragrance each season. In the cooler months, I look for warm, woody scents that make me feel cozy. They pair perfectly with a scarf and boots. Right now, I’m loving Eilish No. 2. It has palo santo which is very calming and grounding.”

2. Spruced-Up Candles
“A favorite holiday tradition for me: We put up our fake Christmas tree, then we light up a tree-scented candle. This one from Ulta Beauty Collection smells like the real deal.”

3. A Classic Holiday Lip
“If you are looking for a lipstick that can give you all the holiday warm & fuzzies, Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte & Satin Velvet Lipstick in Blackberry is it. The color is so rich and vibrant. I’ve worn it to countless festive, holiday outings. I used to shy away from wearing red lipstick, but not anymore with this shade.”

4. Glittery, Shimmery Makeup
“It’s the best time of year to wear some sparkle. I was worried this Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow might feel a little too much for me, but it’s blendable enough to be pretty subtle and it wears nicely throughout the night (or day).” Check out more sparkly makeup picks here.

5. Baking-Inspired Beauty
“There’s nothing that gets me in a holiday mood more than baking. Cinnamon rolls! Cookies shaped like snowmen! That’s why I look for anything that gives those cozy, fresh-from-the-oven vibes—without dirtying a single dish. Ellis Brooklyn Vanilla Milk is a perfect little beauty treat.”
