The holidays are the best time of year to score major deals on makeup, whether you’re buying for yourself or your loved ones. This Festive season things get a lot more exciting in the cosmetics department when autumn and winter creep in. Bold wine-hued lips, emerald eyes and all-out glamour come into play as the chillier weather sets in and after a summer of no-one seeing our makeup prowess we’ve never been keener to go all out in the glam stakes.
This year for the holidays, the Guerlain House is celebrating with some exceptional festivities. From 68 avenue des Champs-Élysées, Guerlain’s precious “Golden Bee” has taken flight with magical festive frenzy, spreading a path of golden enchantment that shimmers with sparkle as it goes.
With the Golden Bee collection, all the magic of the holidays can now sparkle with life. Think: a palette filled with magical pigments, a golden harmony of Météorites pearls. A unique Terracotta powder with golden light and precious Rouge G shades and cases in limited edition. After appearing on the Eau de Cologne Impériale bottle in 1853, bees became an emblem for Guerlain. Now the beauty of the House’s precious bee is enchanting each limited-edition creation in the Golden Bee collection.
Dior Golden Nights Holiday Collection 2020
This holiday season, Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, presents a fantastic fairy tale that gives a chic rock n’ roll twist to tradition. An array of blacks combines with magical shades of gold to create sophisticated makeup looks. The house of Dior has created a new Rouge Dior Couture Collection set in a limited edition: a couture makeup case inspired by winter wonderlands and adorned with an enchanting gold decor. The famous lipstick is engraved with delicate snowflakes and comes with a selection of five of the most desirable Rouge Dior shades.
“Golden Nights puts a twist on the holiday classics,” reveals Peter Philips. “I thought of black and gold, of course, but also of visual elements that evoke this merry season, as well as snowflakes, in a play of festive and chic crystals.” – said Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup.
Les Chaines D’Or de Chanel
A powerful symbol of the House, the legendary golden chain interwoven with black leather is reinterpreted by Lucia Pica in this limited-edition collection for the holiday season. The Chanel Global Creative Makeup and Colour Designer paints a portrait of a strong, radiant woman with a colour palette of deep, golden shades for a bold makeup look. “To pay tribute to Gabrielle Chanel’s love for gold, the Rouge Allure timeless shades are enriched with light-reflecting golden sparkle.” – said Lucia Pica.
Nothing says ‘treat yourself’ quite like a Chanel purchase and if ever we deserved a treat, it’s this year. The 2020 holiday collection from Chanel is based on the iconic Chanel chain bags, with the emblem embossed into eyeshadows and blush for a truly luxe take on a Christmas collection.
Illuminating Blush Powder. Deliver a dose of radiance to sun-deprived skin with this satiny copper pink with a rosy undertone. So very, very Chanel.
Ombre Premiere Eyeshadows. In four glorious shades, these shadows echo the festivities of Christmas past with deep hues including antique gold Or Antique, platinum Or Black, copper pink Cuivre Rose and khaki brown Cuir Brun.
Rouge Allure. Finish your festive look with a classic Chanel lip shade enhanced with luminous gold sparkles.
Givenchy Holidays 2020
If sparkle and shine are your thing, Givenchy’s star-spangled 2020 holiday collection is going to be rather exciting for you.
Black to Light Palette. This glittering palette houses a combination of matte and satin eyeshadows with different sized mother of pearls infused to help it them be as light reflective as you can possible imagine. The silver and white star gives a pearlescent shine to your look while the two greys contrast the shine for a festive look with mysterious depth.
Le Rouge and Le Rough Deep Velvet. It’s not a holiday collection without a statement red lip. These are both long-lasting, one with a pearly finish befitting the festive season and the other matte for a velvety look (if Christmas isn’t the season for velvet we don’t know when is!)
L’Interdit Lip Top Coat Limited Edition. This non-sticky gloss transforms any lipstick into a party-ready shade thanks to pink and gold sparkle.
