Here's some look ideas to make your days more magical and nights more glistening.


Ice Queen

As we're just days away from the start of the winter season, take inspiration from the cold winter months.

Rose Gold Glitz

Rose gold is a gorgeous universally flattering neutral that looks great on everybody and it's so easy to incorporate this hue into your look.  While golds and silvers usually take center stage especially during holiday season, rose gold is the perfect soft glam hue for dainty, feminine vibes. Pair with mauve, plum and taupe hues for a soft yet delicate eye makeup look. Add rose gold on the lips to upgrade your everyday neutral hued lip. Rock a monochrome rose gold makeup look on the eyes, cheeks and lips for a glowy look that's fit for holiday season!

Add sparkles, glitter and glow with multifaceted dimension so the festive season doesn't dim your glow this season. Even better, layer different finishes and textures to really amp up and customize your glow!

Of course, while we countdown the days 'til Christmas, some of just want a traditional red and gold color palette because it's so festive and appropriate for the season! Go bold with an opaque red and green halo spotlight eye and it'll allow you to create a beautiful gradient and blend and is perfect if you're a fan of bold pops of color. Amp up your everyday smokey by layering duochrome pigments in this festive palette for a glam af look. For a more toned down version of the look,  go for muted hues in brick red and a jewel toned green for a more wearable version of the look. Don't forget to try this fun color palette on your nails, too and we especially love holographic and duochromes for this season!
