Iâ€™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 Iâ€™m going out Iâ€™ll wear a little more eyeshadow.. and thatâ€™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. Itâ€™s one of the only times of the year where I think about and buy new makeup!
With my travel schedule this year, Iâ€™ve been looking more than ever for a one stop solution to eliminate having to feel like Iâ€™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 Iâ€™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 youâ€™re like me and havenâ€™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 Iâ€™ve gotten around the holidays and if youâ€™re looking for a good gift or stocking stuffer for a lady who doesnâ€™t usually treat herself to new makeup like me, this palette couldnâ€™t be more perfect.
