As the holiday approaches, the party invitations gather, and the urge for the newest makeup colors ignites! This year it is all about the golden and pink shimmer powders, deep ruby reds or pinky nudes for the lips and nails, and jewel toned eye shadows.
Here are some of my favorite new holiday inspired looks:
Estee Lauder Holiday Spirit includes the limited addition Brilliant Shimmer All-Over Powder, a mirrored compact with an illuminating gold powder to sweep over your cheekbones and dust on the shoulders. A fun idea for a New Year’s bash.
Clinique’s holiday collections includes limited addition shades called Pink Chocolates which includes their limited addition Shimmering Tones Powder. This pinky powder collection is great for highlighting the eyes and cheeks and giving a soft glow.
Bobbi Brown gives the popular Shimmer Brick even more with limited addition Shimmer Brick and Lip Kit. This Bronze Shimmer Brick comes with a lip palate that includes 2 lip colors and 2 lip glosses. Bring this along on a weekend visit to the relatives.
Nars’ Holiday 2006 includes gold glosses, emerald greens, and deep violets. Some of the new striking colors include a platinum gold lip gloss in “Moon Fleet”, an eye shadow duo of jade and aubergine called “Belly Dance”, and lip pencils in a beige “Bettina”, and coral red “Walkyrie.”
Although Smashbox did not officially release holiday colors, a new Eye Shadow Quad collection was released in “Electric,” which inspires the holiday spirit. “Electric” includes shimmer palate of yellow gold, teal, copper, and eggplant.
