The holidays are actually just around the corner! It’s time to start breaking out glittery eyeshadows, deep lipsticks and festive manicures. Here are my favourites from ACI.
If you want huge oversized lashes give Cargo Boundless Mascara ($20) a try! The oversized brush has 3 different textures so you can get maximum intensity. The soft bristle coats lashes with just enough product, the firm bristles gives increased volume, and spiked bristles gives defined curls and separation. I use all three for a dramatic holiday look.
With cold weather and snow comes watery eyes and runny mascara. Some waterproof formulas are not the best in lengthening and fanning out my lashes. Fusion Beauty has changed my opinion of waterproof mascara with their Xtension ($28) dramatically lengthening fibre mascara. With micro fibers and nourishing ingredients, it promises no smudges or clumps which has been great in cold weather!
Seche Vite ($8.99) is the only top coat you should be using when getting ready for holiday parties.This fast drying coat will keep you covered for a number of days. It’s infamous durability is resistant to chipping and peeling. Put on at Christmas, and your nail polish could last till New Years!
Paul and Joe beauty products are made to be super customizable to fit your personality. With intricate designs, these lipsticks ($21) are made to be interchangeable to the different lipstick cases the brand offers.The lipstick itself has high shine, is moisturizing and comes in three colours: Autumn Sun – an orange- red, Kiss In The Park – a purple- red, and Snuggle Up – a true brick red.
Stila is known for their long and all day lasting products.Their Mattificent ($29) lipstick comes in a variety of colours for the holiday from nudes, to dark reds. The formula includes mattifiying pigments and oils which keep lips smooth and creamy. It’s also infused with argon oil, castor oil, and vitamin C for added nutrients.
