Invites to holiday celebrations and gatherings, both in person or virtually, are coming in hard and fast, and whilst you may be planning what you’re going to wear, there’s also your makeup to take into consideration and what you’re going to gift friends and family. So. Many. Things. To. Do.
This year, for M∙A∙C’s Frosted Firework Collection, the range was inspired by…you guessed it… the surprise, delight and beauty of fireworks. While you’ll want to add them to cart for the packaging alone, wait until you check out the collection in full; think luminous, all-about-skin lustre, updates on the classic lip colours, metallic eyeliners and oh-so-much more.
So whether you’re shopping for yourself (you have our full permission) or searching for a special something for friends and family, here are some of our favourite picks to add to your shopping list…
Lipstick in Heart Goes Boom, $33
Nothing shouts the festive season like a slick of bold lip colour, and in this instance, Heart Goes Boom is an eye-catching fuchsia that will be sure to suit every occasion. Pair it with a slick of liner and luminous skin.
Lipglass in Twinsies, $37
In the perfect suits-all-occasions pinky nude hue, this jojoba-enriched gloss can be used to create a high-shine, glass-like finish, or to give your pout a hint of sheen. You can wear it alone, or over your lip colour, and it’s pigmented, so you can control whether you get a subtle or dramatic colour.
Extra Dimension Foil Eyeshadow in Sparktacular, $38
For an eye-catching (pardon the pun) eye makeup finish, look no further than these Foil Eyeshadows. Available in five shades, including Sparktacular,a sheer nude, these long-wearing, non-fading shadows give richly pigmented colour payoff with a metallic-like texture. Wear them as a wash of colour or play them up to achieve a look that begs for attention.
Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Zenith/Can You Chill?, $40
For special occasions or even to add a touch of glamour to your everyday makeup look, these dual-ended, waterproof liners come in three shades that serve up both pigment and pearlescent and metallic finishes. A cinch to apply, they seriously will. Not. Budge. Plus, this shade pictured, Zenith/Can You Chill?, gives you a gunmetal silver and a chic navy liner in one; it’s basically the liner of our dreams.
Extra Dimension Skin Finish in Flare For The Dramatic, $63
If the holidays shout shimmer to you, then you’re going to love this festive-inspired twist on the traditional highlighter. Available in both Let It Glow (pictured), a frosty white, and also Flare For The Dramatic, a warm golden bronze, these liquid-to-powder formulas are designed to sculpt and highlight your complexion to leave a lit-from-within glow. We’ll take one of each, thank you!
