MAKE UP FOR EVER · Artist Face Color

In the whirlwind pace of so many new — and frequently limited edition collections launching from all the brands, it’s nice to take a step back and give some love to something more permanent; case in point, the Artist face Colour blushes, highlighters, and sculpting powders from MAKE UP FOR EVER — a brand that definitely knows a thing or two about colour and more importantly, performance.

Sisley Paris · Phyto Twist Makeup & Hair Rituel

NARS · Holiday 2018 Collection

 

Bands have been steadily releasing their holiday offerings, and I have a selection from NARS to show you today.

Dior · Midnight Wish Collection, Holiday 2018

 

Inspired by one’s “lucky star”, Dior’s Midnight Wish Holiday 2018 Collection (all limited edition) is a makeup lover’s delight. With holiday-themed shades to go with the intricately wrought designs — not to mention the most display-worthy packaging (seriously; just look at those nail polish bottles), everything shown would definitely be a hit gift … just make sure to grab a few items for yourself while you’re at it.

Guerlain · Two-Tone Blush

 

Guerlain recently launched Two-Tone Blush, cheek duos comprised of blush & highlighter in one compact that are meant to recreate the ‘draping technique’ (i.e.: blush that goes from cheeks to temples) — an effect which appears to be quite ‘in’ at the moment, but in reality has actually been used by makeup artists for decades. Trend factor aside, the two shades have something else working for them: beautiful, wearable, colour.
