Chin-up my lovelies, Christmas is almost here! I’m not sure about everyone else, but I know exactly what I’m ticking-off my holiday makeup checklist this year. Here are 5 makeup must-haves you need to check off your holiday glam list; from flushed winter cheeks to eggnog-proof lipsticks, we’ve got you covered! Go ahead and treat yourself (because you deserve it!) or gift others, because you’re the most generous Secret Santa out there.
Yup, that’s right.This palette continues to be my eternal favourite; and while there are several other gorgeous nude eyeshadow palettes out there, I can’t seem to get over how dreamy this baby is. It blends oh-so smoothly and has the prettiest shimmers perfect for Christmas Eve parties, along with demure nudes and pinks for cosy brunches. Also, the tone of this palette is super versatile which makes it a fool-proof gift for your mom, sister or BFF.
Is any makeup look in the holiday season ever complete without a highlighter? Trust us, this highlighter palette does not disappoint. It has the most intense, buttery formula which glides over your skin seamlessly and is buildable to amp up any & every look you’re in the mood for; and while the rose gold hues compliment all skin tones, I love how stunning they look on warm, Indian skin tones—delivering an ethereal, lit-from-within glow that can be spotted from the moon!
This cult favourite lipstick truly is the mother of all nudes. The nude-pink tint compliments every skin tone and lasts for up to 10 hours. Dab it lightly on your lips for an au naturale look or build it up for mistletoe-ready lips. The 3D glowing pigments also add to the fullness of the lip by making them look more plump.
This lip and cheek stain will give you the prettiest, cherry-hued tint. Apply it on your lips and the apples of your cheeks and simply blend with your fingers for au natural rosy, flushed cheeks and cherry-kissed lips. P.S.- If you haven’t tried it already, put some on the tip of your nose too, it looks incredibly adorable. Also, how perfect would this li’l tint be for a stocking stuffer?
For those who want a break from mundane makeup looks this festive season, this shimmery lip topper will definitely do the job well. Simply dab it on top of your lips after applying lipstick for a pout so glam and edgy, it’ll make heads turn!
