Kat Graham Spills Her Best Holiday Beauty Tips

'Tis the season! With winter — and the holiday party season — right around the corner, Kat Graham, queen of the bold red-carpet beauty moment, spills her best beauty tips and skincare secrets to Stylish. Scroll to read them all!

Whip Out Your Boldest Lip

When it comes to holiday makeup, Graham, 27, is all about scarlet fever. "I love a good, bold lip, and the holidays are the perfect excuse to pull out your boldest, brightest red," the Vampire Diaries actress tells Stylish. "If you’re prepping for a party, I exfoliate first (you can use sugar from your kitchen if you're in a pinch!), then dab on a thin layer of moisturizing lip balm. Once it's set, line your lips, apply the lipstick and blot the excess." (Fun fact: She blots with coffee filters to avoid tissue fuzz.)

Get Your Sparkle On

"I'm a firm believer in the sparklier, the better," says the Caress ambassador. "But you should pick one part of your face not the whole thing. I love sparkly eyes for the holidays, especially New Year’s Eve." Her trick for making it last all day (and night)? Moisturize the lid, prime it and then follow with your shadow of choice.

Frost Yourself — and Your Hair

Second day hair? Graham has a solution for that. "The holidays are also a great excuse to play with hair accessories and fun hats," she says. "Even if you throw your hair up in a quick topknot or ponytail, you can add instant polish by wearing a headband or bejeweled barrette."
