Let's face it — the holidays are fun, but they're quite possibly the most stressful time of the year. From work-specific events and parties to girlfriend get-togethers and family reunions, it's hard to catch your breath let alone plan out your look for every single gathering.

Yet somehow, every person tends to look like they got a makeover from Kim Kardashian West's glam squad except for you — and hey, maybe they did. 

Luckily, there are people on the internet who can teach you how to nail your makeup and hair game so that you won't ever have to feel that way at another year-end party again. It takes all the hard work out of trying to figure out what look you're going for and gives you an opportunity to step out of your comfort zone. Oh yeah, and you will absolutely slay.

Take notes, and remember: Practice makes perfect.
