Sleigh your makeup game this holiday season with these 12 must have items picked just for you!


Aries, you will finally catch a break and some much-deserved recognition this month. After putting in the last of those extra hours at work, you’ll be able to catch your breath and just sit back and relax. Take the time this month to catch up with friends and family and set yourself up for a successful new year.

This month spritz on a scent that is unique to every wearer, Glossier You. This intoxicating musk interacts with your own personal skin chemistry to create a scent that is personal and never mainstream. Treat yourself to a new perfume this month, you never know who will be waiting under the mistletoe.

This month will bring with it ample time for relaxation. 2020 has been a rollercoaster of a year and we could all use a little time to just unwind. Take some time to write out your goals and dreams for 2021 and how you plan to achieve them.

Clean and clear skin is always in regardless of the month or year. With temps dropping CeraVe’s new Cream to Foam Cleanser is perfect for nourishing, cleansing and protecting skin against harsh winter weather. Take this month to insure that you head into 2021 with a clear mind, heart and complexion!

Gemini, you will find closure this month on all of the major projects you had planned for 2020. While it felt that this year was never ending, you can officially breathe a sigh of relief as you cross things off your to-do list. Take a week or two this month to take time for yourself before rolling out your 2021 plans and goals.

After a year like this we could all use a good night’s sleep. Slip Pure Silk Pillowcases allow you to press snooze a few more times on your alarm since they pretty much guarantee you a good hair day after a long night’s rest. Not only do these pillowcases look and feel luxurious, they also make for a solid gift under the tree for the long-lock friends of yours.

While 2020 has been quite the year, December still brings with it a certain holiday magic. Create new memories by spending time safely with friends and family. 2021 is right around the corner and with it a whole new year of opportunities.

Spend a night in with your girlfriends and have yourselves a spa and movie night experience. Pop in your favorite holiday classic, pour the wine and slather on Honayst’s Skin Glowing and Refining Mud Mask. This mud mask is a go to of ours as it doesn’t strip or dry the skin of its natural oils, but rather uses natural ingredients (which smell amazing) and science to detoxify, replenish and restore skin to its most natural beauty.

Leo, this month you will lead the pack in spreading holiday cheer. While this holiday season may look and feel a little different than in the past, it doesn’t mean it can’t still be filled with the same if not more holiday magic. Find a way to safely get together with friends and family to create new memories as we head towards the new year.

With masks covering the lower half of your face it’s time to let your lashes do all the talking this month. Nothing makes a glittery holiday eye pop quite like some long and full lashes. Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk Push-Up lashes give you so much length, color and volume that people will be convinced you’re wearing falsies.

This month will fly by for you, Virgo. You’ll find that all the big projects you’ve been working on will successfully wrap up this month. Take some time to think about how you want to kick off the new year and what it is that you really want to master in 2021.

When it comes to manifesting your best complexion ever in 2021, look no further than Sunday Riley’s Power Couple Gift Set. Good Genes is an AHA powered serum and Luna is an overnight retinol oil, together both work to even skin tone, brighten your complexion, remove the look of fine lines and wrinkles. These are two of our tried-and-true holy grail items bundled together for one incredible price, so make sure to stock up this holiday season!

Spending time with loved ones this month will be vital for your mental health, Libra. After all that 2020 has thrown your way, you deserve this time to just relax and catch up with the ones you love. Spend some time thinking about what you want to accomplish in 2021 and how you plan to do so.

Nothing says relaxation quite like lavender. NEOM’s Perfect Night’s Sleep candle will transform your entire space into a spa like sanctuary. Let the gentle aroma put your mind at ease and prepare you for a much-needed restful sleep.

Listen, every Scorpio has the same belief that their birthday is what kicks off the holiday season. As you head into the last month of the year, you’ll find yourself wrapped up in the magic of the holidays. While times are definitely different, make an effort to get out and enjoy as much of this time as you can.

Give your locks the attention they deserve with Oribe’s Gold Lust Collection. A deep clean and condition will not only smell and feel amazing, but it will also prep hair for the bitter winter weather that lies ahead. Plus, we love getting Oribe at a steal, and this set gives you not only the full-size shampoo and conditioner but the travel sized hair oil for combatting winter frizz on the go. Let’s be honest, we all deserve a little silver and/or gold this time of year.

This month all eyes will be on you, Sagittarius. The holidays have always been your favorite and while this year won’t be quite the same, it’ll still be one to remember. As the year comes to an end, you’ll find that there is so much to celebrate. Spend time safely with family and friends to look back and reflect on all that 2020 sent your way.

No need to go full-glam this season since social gatherings have dwindled in size. However, a little bit of glitz, glitter and shine never hurts and when it comes to achieving that ‘no makeup, makeup with a holiday twist look’ Huda Beauty’s Naughty Nude Palette will be your go-to. The 18 sultry shades provide you with just the right amount of warmth to create the most sought-after holiday looks. Sure, the palette may be named naughty, but all your looks will be at the top of Santa’s nice list.

This month will be quite a relaxing few weeks for you, Capricorn. Soak up the downtime, as it’s much deserved after the year we had. Spend time clearing your head and relishing in the magic of the holidays with friends and family.

All it took for us to embrace the skin we’re in was a pandemic and a full-time work from home life. Slowly but surely a lot of our go-to makeup routines were put on hold. With wearing a mask the only thing we truly worry about anymore are our brows, lids and lashes. MAC’s Big Boost Eyebrows Fibre Gel has become our go-to Zoom meeting makeup. Swipe on for bold polished brows that say, “Why yes, I did get dressed up for this call”.

December is always a bustling month, and this year it’ll be no different for you Aquarius. Between work and family events, you’ll have your calendar pretty much booked. Remember to try and enjoy the magic of the holidays amidst your buzzing social life.

Dry Bar is making it easier than ever to achieve their flawless blow outs from home with their Mixologist Interchangeable Styling Iron. Our go-to is the three-barrel waver option, which allows us to achieve tousled beach waves in almost half the time. Gift yourself a lifetime of flawless locks this season!

Finally, you can see 2021 flickering in the distance. This month is all about powering through these last few weeks of the year and heading into 2021 with renewed hope and motivation. If there is one thing that 2020 taught us, it’s to live life more in the moment. Things happen and don’t always go to plan, remember that as you map out what you hope to achieve in the new year.

Staying home has become the new pastime of 2020 and it can be easy to fall into a monotonous routine. Spice things up at home with The Laundress x Le Labo collaboration. To be honest we never thought we needed a luxury laundry detergent until this came out. Our WFH Attire (leggings and old college hoodies) have never smelled so expensive and we actually look forward to laundry days when our homes smell like a Le Labo store. Is it a splurge? Yes. Do you deserve it? 100% yes.
