With the holiday season looming before us, you can pretty much count on a calendar jam-packed with social events. How you juggle that schedule is entirely up to you. At TheBeautyPlace.com, our mission is to help you juggle it in gorgeous style. Peruse our virtual aisles to find just the products you need to see you through the coming months, from glamorous lip hues to flattering eye colors. Here are some of our favorites:
Now is definitely the time to play around with smoldering, smoky eyes. Use the Youngblood Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Quad ($30.99) to create a killer look using shades of gray, charcoal, and black. Use the shimmery white hue to brighten the inner corners of your eyes—it won’t dull the intensity of the smokiness, but it will open up your eyes and make you look more awake. Don’t forget to pile on the mascara for extra oomph!
Color us obsessed with anything sparkly during the holiday season. One of our favorites is Jane Iredale 24-Karat Gold Dust ($10.99), a fine powder that looks just as gorgeous on the skin as it does in the cute jar. To use, pick up some powder with a fluffy makeup brush and dust it onto cheekbones and even décolleté for an instant color boost. Available in three colors, including silver, gold, and this peachy-pink champagne, the effect is pure radiance.
What’s your glam factor during the rest of the year? If you tend to play it safe most of the time, now is a good time to amplify your beauty routine with one or two products that really make your features pop. Ease into the idea with Glo Minerals Gloss in Poppy ($12.99), a fiery hue that provides an intense, glassy finish and imparts true, lasting color. The formula is packed with nourishing oils and healing antioxidants that actually improve the condition of your lips with regular use—just in case you need an excuse to wear the brazen hue.
An iconic red nail is all you need to finish your look during the holiday season. You can stick with a tried-and-true, classic red with a matte finish, or you can step just a bit outside of your comfort zone with OPI Euro Centrale Collection My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours ($7.99). Infused with diamond dust, this unique formula shines from every angle, and from afar it almost resembles sparkling rubies. What better way to complement those new peep-toe heels?
Celebrations that go well into the night are fun and all, but all those runs to the restroom for a quick makeup check can be annoying. Nip that in the bud with Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener ($32.99). Apply it before you put on any other makeup, and it will lock your color in place so you can party without the worry of touching up your look every hour. Bonus points for the radiant finish—it’s perfect for brightening a tired complexion!Our Cosmetics Sale starts this Saturday, October 22!
