It's the homestretch, folks. In truth, it feels like the holidays have been approaching forever. We're even getting a little tired of Mariah's peppiest hit; blasphemy, we know! But now, the countdown is truly on. And if all this schlepping, prepping, and arguing about whose parents' house to go to for Christmas dinner has left you with some bags under your eyes, don't worry: We've got your back (and some peptide-infused eye serum).
Below, we've rounded up some beauty products that will help take you through the rest of the holiday season with a glow. Tried, tested, and approved by some of your favorite Bravolebs, these goodies target everything from dry skin (thank you for the tip, Dorinda) to pesky fake lashes that fall off too easily (we tip our hats to Quad for this product find). We also found products that make it easy to keep your lips moisturized, cover your grays, and give your lips that coveted shimmer.
So keep scrolling, shop 'til your drop, and let these beauty products do the work while you enjoy a much-deserved spiked egg nog. And OK, one more dance party to Mariah.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream
Truthfully, we're convinced that this stuff truly is magic — and we're not alone. Dorinda Medley also religiously slathers on this rose-scented stuff, which leaves skin glowing and dewy. Yes, even in the bone-dry wintertime.
Most Bravolebs have a knack for applying lashes, and Tinsley Mortimer even has her own line of fluttery falsies. But even when she's wearing lashes, Tinsley swipes on this beloved brand of mascara. Used on Dior runway models — which means it's probably good enough for your office holiday party — the product "thickens and elongates," Tinsley told us. In short: "It's so great."

Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo
You can't find room in your schedule to hit the salon before every holiday event, but you can find room in your purse for this. Moroccanoil's dry shampoo, according to LeeAnne Locken, instantly hides grays. It comes in a portable, 1.7-oz bottle as well as in a larger size, and it also absorbs oil.
Stila Heaven's Hue Highlighter
Want to add a little gleam to your holiday look? Take a cue from Teresa Giudice, and swipe on Stila's illuminating powder. The Real Housewives of New Jersey beauty uses the Kitten hue (a shimmering nude pink), and it gives her a gorgeous glow.
This is a must-have in several Bravolebs' beauty bags. We've heard everyone from Tinsley Mortimer to Kyle Richards rave about the sponges, and Erika Giradi even collaborated on her own version. According to Erika, "It gives you the flawless finish. Whether you’re a professional or whether you’re doing your makeup yourself, you get that gorgeous finish that everyone wants."
Smith's Minted Rose Lip Balm
Don't stand under the mistletoe without moistening those lips! Cynthia Bailey always carries this minty lip balm in her beauty bag. It can also be used on knees and elbows, and to ease pain associated with minor burns. You know, just in case you have any cookie-baking mishaps.
Viktoria DeAnn Eye Serum
The holidays can wear out the best of us, but Tamra Judge has a tip for perking up tired eyes. The Real Housewives of Orange County fitness buff has said that she applies this product under her eyes twice a day, and "I think it's really working."
KISS i-ENVY Super Strong Hold Eyelash Adhesive
Remember what we said above about Bravolebs and their lashes? In addition to knowing just which falsies to tack on, Bravo personalities including Quad Webb-Lunceford make sure those lashes don't fall off.
The self-proclaimed "Black Barbie" once told us: "If I have lashes, then I have to have glue. And this glue is super strong glue." You know what that means: you can get through all The 12 Days of Christmas with your lashes intact.
Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Eyeshadow Palette
Want to make your holiday season a little peachier? Kelly Dodd has just the thing. The newly engaged Real Housewives of Orange County beauty says Too Faced's palette appeals to her for its variety of colors. And since there a lot of hues to choose from, this would make a great gift for your Secret Santa. (Come on: How could you know what Kelly from accounting's favorite shade is? Better give her some options!)
IT Cosmetics CC + Cream With SPF 50+
Repeat after us: SPF isn't just for the summertime! But if you tend to forget to slather on sunscreen by the time Christmas carols hit the airwaves, hedge your bets by using this CC cream. Cameran Eubanks once said, "It has skincare built into it, SPF." And when paired with her L'Oreal Infallible Foundation, Cameran vows, "It's awesome."
Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Lip Gloss in Rose Quartz
No beauty look is complete without a perfectly painted lip. And according to Stephanie Hollman, you can't go wrong with a gloss from Clé de Peau. "They have the best glosses, so I have them in every color," she said. She pointed to the Rose Quartz shade as one that's "really beautiful"and gives "a little shimmer on whatever you're wearing." 'Tis the season to shimmer!
