As our social calendars quickly fill with Christmas celebrations and festive events, the excitement to plan party-ready looks builds for every beauty lover. It’s a time to take our makeup game up a notch, put on a bold lip and bejewel our eyes with the most sparkling shadows, stepping out of our day-to-day style and going for glam.
And what way better to dial up the drama than with a makeup palette – a multi-seasonal staple packed with a spectrum of shades to create endless colour combinations and perfect your Christmas complexion.
We’ve hand-picked our festive favourites that deserve prime spot on your wishlist this year.
