Okay girls! Let’s just take a big holiday breath and calm down! I’ve gotten about a gajillion 911 texts and calls about how all this holiday madness is wrecking your complexions! Dull, tired looking? Stress wrinkles more prominent? Hormonal breakouts? Dark circles? No wonder with all my fab girls have to accomplish this time of year considering you already work full time and have very little child management help! You’re all Wonder Woman so you just need a little help from your favorite gay elf! Moi of course!

You don’t need a complete overhaul! You just need the right targeted treatment and cosmetics so you can quickly transform your face to that radiant festive and glamorous girl waiting to come out and have some fun. You’re just 10 minutes away from this gorgeousness once you discover my quick must haves!
