Holiday party beauty picks


Merry Christmas!

This time of year, I love sticking with the classics for creating a holiday beauty look: a bold red lip and nail, with a bit of sparkle thrown in for good measure. Here are some of my favourite products for creating a classic holiday look.

Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer: A flawless canvas makes a red lip shine. These natural concealer made with clay is ideal for covering little blemishes.

Tarte BB Amazonian clay BB illuminating moisturizer: Rather than opting for a totally matte finish, I love that this illuminating tinted moisturizer gives that healthy-looking glow (even if, let’s face it, we haven’t seen the sun for weeks!).

Aveda lipstick in “Poppy”: This beautiful, cool red shade is perfect for the holidays, but also works throughout the year. It’s not too matte, nor too sheer–a perfect in-between.

Burt’s Bees lip gloss: While I’m not normally a big lip gloss person, I do love Burt’s Bees version. The red shade adds a little shimmer to lips without being too sparkly.

What are your favourite holiday looks? Any favourite products?
