Makeup: Lancome Holiday 2011 by Kate Winslet
For some, the holidays are a time to come together with family, drink eggnog and sing carols (that’s what people do, right?). For me, the holidays are a time to play dress up with holiday makeup collections!
First up is the Lancome limited-edition color collection by Kate Winslet. The brand ambassadress and British hottie has teamed up with her favorite makeup brand to create 3 products purrrfect for the holiday vixen in you. Kate is raising awareness for The Golden Hat Foundation that improves the lives of people living with autism. Lancome has already pledging 150 Euros to the cause. Giving back is tres tres beautiful.
Back to the products: A fire engine red lippy that screams “kiss me under the mistletoe.” A matching red nail lacquer that says, “let me tickle you under the mistletoe.” And an illuminating smooth face powder ($42.00) – dubbed the Golden Hat as homage to the charity – that begs to be looked at, adored and photographed (under the mistletoe). The L’absolu Rouge ($29.00) comes in 5 colors, the Caprice, true red, being my fave and an amazing holiday red). Le Vernes polishes ($15.00) come in 5 colors that coincide with the lippies.
I’ve already jump started my Holiday look and sported the new apple red lip and face shimmer to a SoHo House dinner with friends. And, P.S., I could totes see Kate wearing the goods (especially the red lippy as red is pretty much her go-to).
When wearing a red lip, I like to keep the focus on my mouth (kiss me, kiss me), so I leave my eyes simple: defined arches and a coat of mascara. Skin should be flawless and the illuminating sparkle from the face powder adds that Holiday glow and festive cheer.
So far, I’m loving the holidays….
