I love wearing makeup, but wearing makeup during the holidays is my favorite. You can drown yourself in glitter and no one can say a darn thing because tis the season, my friends! Today, I’m sharing some essentials from my holiday makeup bag because I have been loving these products lately.
This holiday season I’ve been opting for more bronzey glittery metallic lids, which is where ColourPop’s On The Rocks eyeshadow comes to play. This is such a beautiful bronze with gold and violet glitters. The violet glitter makes it unique, but it’s very subtle.
I love a pop of color on the lower lash line and nothing is as festive during the holidays as the color green. ColourPop’s gel liner in Workout is a beautiful dark forest green that almost looks black. Smoking this out on the lower lash line with On The Rocks all over the lids is very pretty.
For blush, my go to has been NARS Oasis [US | UK]. It’s such a beautiful pinky-plum shade with golden shimmer. The shimmer adds a beautiful golden sheen to the skin. This looks very similar to Sin [US | UK], but it looks a bit more pink.
For a golden highlight, which is currently my preferred shade of highlight, my go to has been Anastasia Beverly Hills So Hollywood [US]. It isn’t a white gold nor is it a super yellowy gold– it’s just a beautiful true gold.
My favorite makeup product would have to be lipstick. I just can’t seem to get enough of them! Lately, I’ve been obsessed with ColourPop’s More Better, a dark berry red, and Bad Habit, a dusty deep mauve [swatches here].
Two traditional lipsticks I’ve been into for a long time are MAC’s Diva [US | UK] and Rebel [US | UK]. I’ve had Rebel for a long time and it’s one of my favorite MAC lipsticks because it’s just the perfect berry shade. On the other hand, Diva is a gorgeous red wine shade that is similar to Sin, but not as dark or brown toned [comparison here]
For nails, Essie Wicked [US | UK] is a go to. It’s the perfect deep red shade that looks almost black if you build up the opacity. It’s not your typical holiday red nail shade, which is why I love it so much.
