  1. A Turkey ComaThanksgiving with Skindinavia

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

  3. Unsolicited Life Advice & Interrogations

Thanksgiving with Skindinavia

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.

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

Thanksgiving with Skindinavia

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!
