For many families, today's the day for food, family, friends...and did we say food? That delicious 20-pound turkey aside, the real meaning of Thanksgiving lies in gratitude. And if you're as much of a beauty lover as we are, some makeup might make the list of things your grateful for. Our editorial team shares what they're thankful for outside and within the beauty world. What's on your list?
"I'm thankful for my family, who has always given me love and supported me in everything I chose to do. And I'm thankful for living in Northern California. I don't think I could ever move away! And I'm totally grateful for hats of any kind. They're an essential in my wardrobe—trendy, warm, and they hide a bad hair day!"
"I'm so thankful for my family and close friends. Moving across the country from New York to Los Angeles was extremely stressful and I wouldn't have been able to do it with their support and love. I'm so happy to be able to spend more time with my parents and sister in California. As for beauty, I’m always thankful for the messy topknot. I've been wearing the quick and easy hairdo for years and now it's actually ultra trendy!"
"Right now, I'm most thankful for living in such a beautiful and creative state. I'm a California girl—born and raised—and I can't imagine being anywhere else. We've got oceans, mountains, snow, and Disneyland! I feel so fortunate to be here with my family. My tired eyes, however, are most thankful for theBalm Time Balm Concealer. This concealer has saved my life on so many occasions. Zombie to bright-eyed in less than 10 seconds!"
"I'm thankful for the Beautylish community. From the breathtaking photos to the helpful comments and videos, the creativity of all the Beauties on our site inspires me every day. I'm also thankful for Leonor Greyl Lait Luminescence. I moved back to Los Angeles earlier this year and had such a hard time getting a smooth blowout until I discovered this detangling milk. It adds silkiness and shine but doesn't weigh down my thin hair. It's like good hair insurance!"
"I'm thankful that I met the love of my life at such a young age, so I get to spend even more of my days with him. I'm in awe at the amount of inspiration in the world, from so many amazing websites, our Beauties, and the creative people you can discover online! I'm also thankful for bright lipstick! It's my signature look, and I love the dark, plummy shade of Chanel's Rouge Allure Velvet in La Sensuelle for fall and winter."
"I'm so thankful for my entire family, but especially for my sister. She’s creative, determined, confident, and most important, inspiring—everything I look for in a role model. Also, I really value how multifaceted the beauty industry is—I can simultaneously embrace my inner artist and my science geek! Lastly, I’m always appreciate of good skin. My skin care routine is almost ritualistic and I generously slather on Benefit Watt's Up! highlighter for a mega-glow, even in the dry weather."
"I'm thankful for my siblings, especially my older brother, who was adopted when he was 15 and I was 12. He's the one who will get me chocolate at midnight, no questions asked. Though we bicker like 5-year-olds most of the time, I'm glad I have someone older for advice when I need it. In beauty, I'm so thankful for Smith's Rosebud Salve. This multitasker heals chapped lips, soothes burns, nourishes dry winter hands, and helps with redness."
