    I live in the U.S. My favorite thing to wear to holiday parties (and any other special event at night) is Chanel Rouge Allure Laque Dragon. It was a HUGE splurge for me but, the color and texture of it makes me feel pretty and provides me with a boost in confidence.

    Hi Karla!

    — I’m from the US.

    — My fave makeup item to wear to holiday parties is Rimmel’s “Red Alert” Lipstick. I love wearing red lipstick throughout the year, but it’s a staple during the holidays! :)

    Hi, I am from California, USA.
    My favorite makeup item for the holidays is the BareMinerals Eyecolor in Trophy Wife. It is a BEAUTIFUL gold that GLIMMERS on my eyes.

    Thank you!

  • Jen says:

    (1) United States

    (2) Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy Pressed Powder Eyeshadow or Midnight Rodeo Cream Eyeshadow. They’re essentially the same shade just in different formulas. The glitter shows up more/better in the cream formula, whereas the pressed powder formula gives a more natural look with a pretty sparkle. Paired with black eyeliner (top only) and volume mascara (Estee Lauder Sumptuous Mascara – my favorite!).

  • Marcia says:

    U.S. I love using Buxom’s lip plumper gloss in Jessica for special occasions.

  • virginie says:

    Hi, I am living in NYC. The thing I wear when it’s holiday time, is my Orange lipstick from YSL. it was my 1st dare buy, and I don’t regret it, the formula is amazing and the color gorgeous. Since then, I buy more daring lipstick as well when I go out at night for events and stuff.

  • Maria says:

    Im in the US and I love to wear MACS Russian Red to holiday parties.

  • Kimi says:

    I live in the USA and I always wear Lipstick Queen’s Saint Lipstick in Wine. Such a great shade to wear :)

  • Anna says:

    I’m from Berlin, but I’ll move to Philadelphia next week and will EVENTUALLY have the chance to enter giveaways open to US and Canadian residents only!

    Actually, I’m a VERY colourful person, I don’t have a specific make-up style I wear to parties. It depends. If it’s like a fashion/blogger party, I’ll try to be as colourful as possible and go for Sugarpill Cosmetics eyeshadows, especially Buttercupcake combined with Afterparty or Bulletproof with Goldilux. But recently I tend to do more smokey looks with an unnamed Kryolan eyeshadow in black and Sugarpill Cosmetics’ Asylum (because it stands out so well) and there’s normally Rouge Coco in #31 Cambon on my lips, my signature shade. So that’d be my favourite party item – the lipstick, either Cambon or Rouge Byzantine!

  • Jesselyn says:


    NARS Rajasthan eye shadow duo.

  • Lilpil says:

    I’m from US and my favourite makeup item to wear would be Shu Uemura’s black velvet feather faux lashes.

    I have short sparse stubby lashes so always love fluttery thick lashes so these are perfect to help enlarge my eyes

  • blkrox says:


    2) Along with Russian Red I like to do a sheer wash of MAC’s Genuine Treasure paint pot. It also makes for a fantastic smoky eye with a nude lip.

  • Cindy says:

    I’m in Canada, and my favorite holiday color is the Rapturous Mattene from the 2008 MAC collection Cult of Cherry. Absolutely the perfect red for my skin tone.

  • kate says:

    I’m in Montreal, Canada and my favourite party lipstick is Chanel’s Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon!
