Quick Holiday Beauty Tricks
Forgo the glitz. Ditch the dazzle and abandon all things over-the-top. This year, holiday beauty is all about ‘the touches’ — the little things that add a glint of gold or a flash of red. A delicate accent here, a subtle spark of interest there. These five beauty picks help you light up holiday like never before:
For the girl who loves gold, Dior Diorific Jewel Manicure Duo (Available in store only: 212 872 8980) is the perfect holiday paring of a glorious golden lacquer and brilliant, glistening micro-pearls to layer on top. We think an accent nail or two is quite lovely.
Looking for something timeless? Classic glam is the way to go. A bit richer than a true red, Bobbi Brown Limited Edition Nail Polish – Old Hollywood Collection is a deeply saturated red carpet red. We never tire of the perfect red mani and this is sure to become your classic holiday staple (212 872 2681).
Creating a flawless canvas is essential. Reach for a do-it-all complexion fixer like Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer. The versatile formulation morphs from sheer to full coverage, rising to the occasion and offering skin the exact coverage it needs to look holiday-ready (212 872 8890).
Stay fresh faced with the Estée Lauder Holiday Compact. A light dusting gives skin a luminous, complexion-enhancing glow. Though encrusted with brilliant clear crystals, the limited edition pocket-sized compact still feels like a delicate touch of twinkle (212 872 2777).
A palette of mostly essentials, accented with one vibrant burst of pink, Guerlain Crazy Eye Palette Neon Look is a stunning pick for desk-to-drinks holiday happenings. The scene is playful, yet elegant…and we dig that (212 872 2734).
In a rush? Just swipe and go with Laura Mercier Limited Edition Caviar Stick Eye Colour, White Magic Collection. The long wear cream shadow adds a glint of luminosity to lids and lasts for hours. (212 872 2780).
