Christmas is a great time to try new brands and stock up your make up bag with limited edition palettes only sold at this time of year. We’ve picked our favourites, whether you are creating dramatic party looks or simply want a new regime for the new year. If you can bear to part with them, obviously they all make excellent gifts!
Laura Mercier palettes are great, the formula’s are always effortless to apply and the colour mix is highly wearable. This is a great set to chuck in your handbag for an everyday look that is portable and easy to apply on the train *we never apply make up on the train – no sir*
A great stocking filler for a teen, the packaging is a winner and the colours are fun and playful all in a very neat set. At £14 it’s also a bargain!
Benefit are the fun, cheeky make up brand with delicious formulas to match. This set contains everything you need on the go for a fresh-faced effortless look. Start with POREfessional to smooth the skin, add some rosy cheeks with Benetint and finish with lashings of ‘they’re real’ mascara for an easy morning routine.
We are a big fan of Urban Decay eyeshadows, create dramatic and bold statement eye looks with this 20 (yes 20!) shade palette. It is highly pigmented so the colour you see is just as strong on the eyelid, and is highly blendable for a plethora of looks.
Christmas wouldn’t be complete without new lip glosses, and NARS have it covered. Add some festive sparkle with these four beauties and get the mistletoe at the ready.
