Best Makeup Palettes for Holiday Fêtes
It’s easy to forget yourself when caught up in the throes of Christmas shopping, but I caution you to not neglect the opportunity to splurge on a fabulous holiday makeup palette. You mustn’t neglect your first duty to yourself during the holiday season, which is of course, to create dazzling makeup looks for the holiday fêtes you’ll be attending.
One of the best palettes, for those who favor bold color, is Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Palette Multi Usage Noel 14. This kit contains everything you need to create smoky eyes and strong lips — perfect for a late night soiree and sipping champagne.
The Chantecaille Venetian Collection, inspired by the magnificent art, architecture and unsurpassed beauty of La Serenissima, is not to be missed. The eye shadows are exquisite; the jewel-like tones glow with an iridescence that recalls sunset over the Grand Canal.
For a budget-friendly option, look no further than Sonia Kashuk’s limited edition Deco Starlet, which has arrived just in time for the holidays. The eye shadow palette is surprisingly versatile, with rich shimmery brown, bright gold and matte black that easily can take you from day to evening. The lip palette, Jazzed Up Nudes, complement a wide range of skin tones and the colors are on-trend—you’ll be wearing these colors well into spring 2015.
