With the holidays around the corner, many are getting excited to start their holiday preparations and get together with loved ones. The Frias sisters, Mabel + Shaira Frias of Luna Magic, are no exception! The sisters have figured out how to celebrate the holidays con familia smoothly with a few simple tips. Please see below for how Mabel + Shaira get ready for las fiestas!
1. Drink water
This may seem like a simple tip, but people often forget. Drink water! With the cooler temperature and all the running around we do during the holidays, it’s so important to stay hydrated! Not only does it help our body, but also our skin! We always want our Luna Magic makeup to pop and wear it flawlessly.
2. Get holiday look ready
We believe in being bold, having confidence and standing out. That’s why for the holidays we love wearing a bold red lipstick! For our smile to pop, we start preparing our whitening routine a few weeks in advance! We brush daily with Colgate Optic White Renewal, which has 3% hydrogen peroxide. At night, we then dry our teeth and layer on our Colgate Optic White Overnight Teeth Whitening Pen and leave it on overnight. When used as it’s directed, in just 1 week, the whitening pen removes 15 years of stains!
3. Plan activities to make lasting memories
There’s no better time to start creating meaningful and fun traditions than the holidays, especially with a family as big as ours, who is scattered all over the country. We plan different activities to ensure that our tias are going to the same house, the little ones have other ones to play with, we keep our traditions alive, you name it! Wherever we end up, we know we will create memories for the whole family to cherish.
4. Organize the space
The holidays are all about welcoming loved ones. And something we always do to prepare for our guests to make sure they feel welcomed and comfortable is organizing our space. We make sure that our homes are cleaned, and we give it that extra touch to make it feel inviting. All our decorations are up, a nice holiday scent is felt throughout the home, and we set enough tables and seating for everyone. That way, everyone can relax and enjoy the company.
5. Prepare the holiday dishes
Last-minute dinner prep adds to the already stressful moments of the holidays. That’s why we start preparing dishes weeks in advance. We review recipes, test them out, see what we have available in our pantry, and build our shopping list. Once we know what we are cooking, the kitchen becomes a place for amazing food and loved ones to gather!
