I’m usually the type of person who wears the exact same makeup every single day. How boring right? I tend to get into a routine and just stick with it. Actually, I have daytime makeup and then if I’m going out I’ll wear a little more eyeshadow.. and that’s about it.
Something about the holiday season actually makes me want to try new things and experiment a little with more colors and tones. It’s one of the only times of the year where I think about and buy new makeup!
With my travel schedule this year, I’ve been looking more than ever for a one stop solution to eliminate having to feel like I’m traveling with all of the makeup I own to have different options. I like to only bring a few things with me but that will let me play a bit more for holiday parties.
Lancome recently launched a new palette that I’m head over heels for. It has the perfect mix of mattes and metallics and in shades that I love this time of year: mauve brown, deep navy, and a little cranberry shine. I like that in one palette I can lay the base of my eyeshadow, highlight my brows and fill in the crease if I want to do something a little smokier. If you’re like me and haven’t a clue how to do all of this, pop on over to my Beauty Pinterest board for some tutorials and inspiration for colors.
Some of my favorite makeup items I’ve gotten around the holidays and if you’re looking for a good gift or stocking stuffer for a lady who doesn’t usually treat herself to new makeup like me, this palette couldn’t be more perfect.
