If there’s any time appropriate for blinging your beauty, it’s the holidays.

There are stellar beauty deals everywhere and a lot of gatherings and events to attend! It truly is a time for celebration, and what better way to finish out the year than with a festive and expressive beauty bling? Here are three ways to help you bling it out for the holidays!


You might as well go all out for yourself at some point. When you find something as beautiful, artistic and meaningful as a collection inspired by a collaboration between Shu Uemura and director Takashi Murakami for 6 Heart Princesses, you GO for it. The Enchanted Black Parallel Palette boasts a velvety smooth texture that helps you reveal your provocative princess side, allowing you to transform yourself with a mischievous variation of black combined with green, purple, and pink shadows. It also includes a stunning shade of blush.


There is a great new way to bling…without all of the glitter. Urban Decay offers Naked Illuminated, which is a big, baked powder meant for face and body. It helps you achieve a look of having just done the deed, if you catch our drift. Every woman needs this product. It comes in a baked form, which means its terribly hard to break and it will last forever and ever. It’s packaged with a lovely little brush underneath, a perfect size to travel with and dust on anytime. Try on your decolletage, cheek bones, to highlight under your eyebrows, down the center of nose, etc. This beauty essential is available exclusively at


There’s nothing like an exclusive, but it’s even better when it’s offered at an insane bargain. Lorac has partnered up with Kohl’s for an exclusive Rockin’ Red Hot shadow and lip set. Perfect for the holidays, it allows you an almost infinite amount of combinations and looks, from day to night, shimmer to matte, glitter to satin. Find it online or in stores at Kohl’s.

Happy Holidays to you!
