Run, don’t walk, to the nearest Chantecaille counter for their while-supplies-last White Tiger compact. The pressed powder is almost too beautiful to use, thanks to the Bengal tiger embossed into the product. But once you give in and sweep the iridescent highlighter on your face, you’ll be glad you did. Also available at Space NK locations.

ModelCo s Luminosity Shimmer Stick will chase both winter blues and that dull, pale pallor away. The multi-purpose, oil-free blush stick is light-reflecting and illuminates skin with a healthy, peachy-pink glow. Dab onto cheeks, lips, décolletage and eyes with fingers for a sexy flush. We love that it’s cruelty-free and not tested on animals. Available at Henri Bendel or

While days may be shorter and the nights are colder and longer, that’s no excuse not to brighten your eyes. Forget reliable neutrals and dazzle with Skinn Dimtri James Winter Patina Shadow Collection. The sleek, portable palette features six richly pigmented shades that offer vibrant color payoff and smooth blendability. We love the stand out midnight blue and the vivacious violet. Available at

If holiday events prevent you from escaping to Paris anytime soon, Global Goddess brings a little bit of Paris to your locale with Goddess Lights Parisian Nights Face and Body Shimmer Powder, which was inspired by and mimics French elegance and Parisian fashionista flare. Dip a large, fluffy brush into this loose powder and apply over foundation for an extra dose of romantic, glamorous sparkle. Global Goddess, started by celeb make up artist Shalini Vadhera, also purports to offer the blackest mascara on the market with its ‘Exotic Eyes Lash Building Mascara. With special ingredients like Japanese Camellia Oil and Indian Mowrah butter that soften and add glossy sheen to lashes, this dramatically intense mascara is equivalent to covering lashes in coal dust! If you are in a rush but won’t leave the house without some color, forego everything but three coats of this mascara and a slick of gloss for easy, on-the-go glamour. Available at or through QVC.

New York City make-up artist and former Scoop boutique employee Judy Cohen did what so many of her peers have done: created her own products when she couldn’t find ones that addressed her needs. Cosmoholic Liquid Lipstick features seven shades of anti-oxidant-loaded, deeply pigmented yet creamy liquid lipsticks that combine lipstick’s coverage with gloss’s texture, sans stickiness or glitter. Cohen designed these lipsticks to be applied with a wand and are appropriate for women of all ages. Available at

Shiseido’s Straight From the Runway Hydro Power Eye Shadow in Proenza Schouler Blue was inspired by the design house it was named after. While the shade looks electric and creamy in the pot, it blends into a bright, bold blue! You can create a halo effect around your eyes or dot and smudge along the lower lashline for a pop of unexpected color. Available for a limited time only at Sephora or

Looking lit from within is crucial during the wintry season, so Dex New York‘s pearly, reflective Mineral Glow will ensure that your skin is translucent. Mix a drop of this liquid with your favorite moisturizer if you want to mimic a little post-coital radiance. Available at
