It’s parrrty time! Turn up at each shindig in a cute frock and fabulous makeup. It’s the perfect season for metallic, mattes, and lots of glow.
This guide will get you easily ready for all your holiday soirees.
Japonesque Pixelated Color Eye Shadow Palette: The eyes have it! If you want light-catching color on your eyes, you’ll get it with this kit, thanks to the micronized pigments. Who cares WHAT that means — all you need to focus on is the fact that your eyes will sparkle and shimmer.
LORAC Sheer POREfection Foundation: Looking like you are wearing a face full of heavy makeup is so passé and so not your goal. This formula will give you clean, radiant skin, as well as the super pretty, almost bare “no makeup” makeup look. That fresh-faced look will remain au courant during 2017, IMO.
Gucci Face Sheer Blushing Powder: I cannot stress the importance of a good blush. You want a bright pop of color, which wakes up your entire visage. That’s exactly what this product adds to your face. It’s worth the spend.
Revlon Colorstay 2-in-1 Angled Kajal Eyeliner: You can’t go wrong with the waterproof formula. Or the angled tip. Or the smudge brush, which is optimal for a smoky eye. So. Many. Options.
Glo Minerals Precise Micro Brow Liner: Meet your new favorite eyebrow pencil, which will let you shape brows as though you were an expert. It will fill in those annoying, thin, and sparse spots and keep brows in tip-top shape.
Clinique Pop Matte Lipstick: A bold, matte pout is always a good party option, since you’ll be talking, drinking lots of beverages, and planting lots of kisses. This formula is perfect for the task, since the saturated color hugs lips for eight hours and the built-in primer ensures that your pucker remains smooth. Try contrasting this lippie with glittery or smoky eyes for a super festive overall look.
Maybelline Color Jolt Lip Paint: If gloss is your pucker preference, then really and truly “go” for it with a jolt of intense color. This formula is supremely pigmented, so you get “look at me” lips.
Palladio Velvet Matte Metallic Cream Lip Color: Red, metallic lips are always a “yes” for holiday parties. This velvety, liquid lipstick is super long-lasting, which is great for when you are blowing air kisses to friends, family, and associates at gatherings.
Covergirl So Lashy! Blast Pro Mascara: Great lashes are always a must and this one hits on all crucial points — length, volume, and darkness.
Now go par-tay darlings!
