CHANEL · Éclat Du Désert Illuminating Powder Spring/Summer 2020

Inspired by the soothing light (I’m guessing that would be at twilight) and powerful stillness of the desert, CHANEL has just launched their Spring/Summer 2020 Collection, with one of the star pieces being this Éclat Du Désert Illuminating Powder. This may be just me, but I find something so calming about the look of this highlighter — it’s like I can almost hear the wind whispering along the sand dunes. Too much? lol

Givenchy · Matissime Velvet Radiant Mat Fluid Foundation

My foundation preferences are simple; I want a light to soft medium coverage, an absolutely weightless feel, and a totally natural-looking finish that also keeps my T-zone from looking like an oil slick.

And then I realized: this would make THE perfect highlighter to wear on New Year’s Eve. I love it when all the stars are aligned this way!

NARS · Studio 54 Collection Holiday 2019

Released for the 2019 holiday period, I personally feel that NARS’ Studio 54 Collection couldn’t be more appropriate for New Year’s festivities; I mean, what says ‘party‘ better than the glittering, disco-infused atmosphere of New York’s infamous club? It should also be said that channeling that decadent vibe through makeup is way better than what really went down in the club …
