Thanksgiving is right around the corner! If you are anything like us you’ve already started planning your perfect outfit, some killer recipes, festive decorations and now it’s time to think about your Thanksgiving day makeup.
Whether you are meeting your new boo’s parents for the first time, need to make your ex jealous or are hosting your very own thanksgiving dinner you will want to look your best this holiday. Below are the 5 most common Thanksgiving makeup meltdowns that we can help you avoid this year!
1. A Turkey Coma
Everyone knows Thanksgiving is the one day of the year where it is socially acceptable to eat yourself into oblivion. Self control is not in our vocabulary when it comes to things like fresh turkey or cheesy mash potatoes and sometimes that means we find ourselves face down drooling (stretchy pants on) on the couch moments after licking our plates clean.
When we do finally roll out of our food coma our stomachs may be happy but our faces… not so much. Smudged red lipstick and mascara everywhere and we are lookin’ like a hot MESS. Fortunately, you can avoid waking up from your little snooze looking like Godzilla this year because we have a solution that is almost too good to be true. This Thanksgiving use our makeup setting spray after you’ve applied your holiday look and you can fall asleep face down as much as you want and still wake up looking as flawless as you did before. #Wokeuplikedis
2. If Your Makeup Can’t Handle the Heat, Get Out of the Kitchen
With every oven, burner, and microwave on in a crowded kitchen filled with waaay too many relatives, things are bound to overheat.
It happens every year, people frantically running around trying to perfect 36 different side dishes and by the time we sit down for the big feast our makeup is nonexistent and our face is so oily it looks like we washed it with an order of greasy chicken nuggets. Not today satan. This year avoid a makeup meltdown by starting and ending your makeup routine with Skindinavia’s Oil Control Kit. This kit will keep your makeup in place and your face shine free!
3. Unsolicited Life Advice & Interrogations
Thanksgiving is a time notorious for a game of 21 questions from all those very noisy relatives which usually ends with you feeling like a POS failure followed by a trip to the bathroom to cry your eyes out. We are looking at you aunt Sheryl. The conversation usually goes a little something like this:
“Soo are you STILL single?”
“Don’t you want to settle down?”
“Will you ever get married or have kids?”
Maybe..Eventually..IDK honestly okay.
“When are you going to find a real job?”
I’m freakin’ working on it, thanks.
It’s questions like these that can cause a waterworks show and some pretty catastrophic makeup meltdowns. Fortunately Skindinavia’s primer and setting spray can save you from looking as bad as you feel during the interrogations this year. A couple spritzes of our spray will keep your makeup locked in to place no matter how hard Aunt Sheryl makes you cry.
4. X’s & O’s Gone Wrong
Thanksgiving brings countless hugs and kisses (both wanted and unwanted). There is nothing worse than giving someone a hug and seeing a splotch of your face makeup left on their sleeve. It is both embarrassing and annoying because it ruins the calculated look that you spent hours perfecting.
Keep your makeup locked in place this Thanksgiving with our setting spray. It will literally keep your makeup looking fresh and smudge free for up to 16 hours. Now that’s something to be thankful for.
5.Vino Stained Lips
1…2…3.. Maybe 4 glasses of wine. Whatever, it’s a holiday, who’s counting? Wine is an absolute necessity on Thanksgiving. Besides being absolutely delicious, sometimes it is thee only thing getting you through dinner. One problem… the more you drink the more it shows on your lips. Sorry sisters, but wine stained lips ain’t cute and can ruin a perfectly good makeup day.
This Thanksgiving try opting for either a white wine or rose! If you must have the red, be sure to pick a dark lip that will mask the wine and use our setting spray to keep it in place all day and night!

Our sprays are lightweight, breathable, hypoallergenic, and silicone free which are extremely essential qualities when adding atop the masses of crazy halloween makeup you may have already applied. The last thing you would want is to add more heavy makeup to weigh you down and run the risk of looking “cakey”.

Well, we are here to tell you Skindinavia’s Primer definitely is and we have hundreds of satisfied customers who would agree. (Check out our rave reviews)
“Skindinavia has the BEST primer and setting sprays. They have different formulas for different skin types. They are light weight, non drying and provide the perfect base for your foundation. I highly recommend”. -Abby
Our patented technology forms a lightweight, breathable base that works with your makeup to slowly release over 16 hours. This means it will absorb better ultimately extending the life of your foundation and keeping you fresh all day. Our formula is the best makeup primer out there and out lasts competitors by a long shot.
Makeup Primer Helps Regulate Oil and Diminish Pores
We all live for a good glowy beauty moment, however, we would prefer to control the glow instead of having an all over glow which comes off looking oily. The average skin temperature is 90 degrees which causes moisture to evaporate quickly, drying out your skin and makeup and ultimately creating excess oil to counteract. Oily skin can be a real downer but a good makeup primer like Skindinavia’s miraculously helps absorb oil getting rid of that undesirable shine and as a result, leaves you with a luxurious and cool matte texture all day long.
Pro tip: Pair Skindinavia’s primer spray with our makeup setting spray for oily skin for best results. It’s the perfect kit to prep and set a flawless face. Our Makeup Primer Spray ensures a silky smooth application, while our cult favorite Makeup Finishing Spray will seal and hold your makeup in place even on a hot sunny day or cold rainy night!
Goodbye Pores, Hello Silky Smooth Skin
First comes oily skin, next comes large pores, it’s a vicious cycle because if you have one you have the other. The good news is, if our primer fights one it fights the other as well. Our makeup primer greatly reduces the appearance of pores, evens out skin tones, blurs the appearance of fine lines, and creates a smooth surfaces for the rest of your makeup.
A lot of makeup primers out there have silicone based products. Applying silicone to your face traps debris in your pores and increases the chances of you having breakouts and ultimately unhealthy skin.
Here at Skindinavia we understand that pore-clogging silicon primers have no place on your face. Therefore, all our products are silicone free which is yet another reason why we have the best makeup primer on the market. A couple other reasons why you should avoid silicone based products are:
They block the other helpful vitamins & ingredients from absorbing
Silicone will make your skin dull and dehydrated
They can interfere with cell renewal and making your skin look tired
The Benefits of a Makeup Primer Spray
Primers come in all different forms, they can be creams, gels, powders or sprays. So how do you choose one? It goes without saying, the LESS you touch your face the better.
How many times a day do we already touch our face? The answer? Too many to count. Whether we are
Wiping our eyes
Resting our hands on our chins
The bottom line is, we touch our face many times unconsciously throughout the day therefore, we don’t need to add another reason to do it with our primer. Skindinavia’s makeup primer comes in a spray form for a lightweight and easy to use solution that just takes a couple quick hydrating mists to prep your makeup.
Pro Primer Tips
Spray your makeup brush with primer before you start to prolong your makeup even longer.
Spray 2-4 times in an X & T motion 6 inches from you face
If you are planning on wearing color on your lips pat them with primer beforehand to reduce oils and expand the longevity of your lipstick. We know…Genius. You’re welcome!
