    4) I also love to do a purple smoky eye for holiday parties – MAC Paint Pot in violet Half-Wild as a base, Urban Decay’s Jet eyeshadow, a blackened purple from The Black Palette patted on top, UD 24/7 Pencil in Zero on my waterlines and a bit of UD Sin on the inner corner of my eyes for a touch of light. Just a little highlighter on my cheekbones (usually Sin again) and a nude lippie, I’m really liking Viva Glam Lady Gaga 2 right now, and I’m set!

    My favorite thing to wear to a holiday party is a bright lipstick. In particular NARS Niagara.

    USA. I love Chanel Allure lipstick in Lover. It’s a beautiful red that is so 50′s glam. I’ve been wearing it for years…particularly around the holidays.

    PS I love your site. Kudos.

    I hate their commercials, but L’Oreal’s Volume Million mascara is actually great and means that I don’t have to wear falsies for parties.

  • julieh says:

  • Liz says:

    I have a new favorite this year for holiday parties: Bobbi Brown Chocolate & Gold Eye Paint Palette from this year’s holiday collection. It’s quite shiny, but if you can’t wear shiny gold eye shadow at the holidays, when can you?

    I’m in the US.

  • Christen says:

  • Doris says:

    I can’t live without some glitter on my eyes. I use MAC reflect gold on the lid, with the help of Too Faced glitter glue to help it stick.

  • Sheila says:

    Please enter me! I’m in Canada and I love Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon (which I said above). If I need to pick another product… then probably Guerlain Meteorites Perles D’or from last year. I love how it gives me a nice glow, perfect for the holidays.

  • Stephanie H says:

    I live in the US and for a festive makeup look I would wear Benefit’s Girl meets pearl for a glowing highlight, MAC e/s in Brule, Ricepaper, and Tempting(and maybe some Goldmine for some extra drama), and MUFE Aqua Eyes in 6L. Thanks!

  • blkrox says:


    5) Another great lippie – CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Embrace #335, a vampy deep purple that does not veer into goth territory. I like to wear it with MAC LiquidLast Liner in Black for a crisp cat eye and bare cheeks with just a touch of highlighter (Boots No.7 Illuminating Lotion) on top of my cheekbones.

  • Paige says:


    The new YSL Faux Cils Shocking mascara makes my lashes longer, fuller, and very black. I could use this for my holiday party makeup instead of wearing falsies.

  • SHaron says:

    Rouge Coco in Gabrlelle by Chanel is my lip shade that I LOVE and I am in the United States.

  • Rebekka says:

    I’m from Canada, and have only just this past year begun to delve into the beautiful world of Shu Uemura. It’s quite the rabbit hole to fall down! LOL.

    My favourite go-to look for any big event or holiday function is always a dramatic smokey eye. When you have thin boring lips but nice big brown eyes, it’s a no-brainer what to play up :-) I traditionally use bronze/brown shades in varying degrees using my favourite MAC eye shadows Brule, Motif, Bronze, Buckwheat, Carbon, Femme-Fi, & Shroom. But in the last couple of years I’ve had my hair coloured an intense dark/medium copper-red, which just screams to dig into my green shadow stash. So last Xmas I broke out my neglected MAC Fresh Green Mix – lighter side on the lid (foiled of course) and darker mixed side on the crease, with Humid on the outer V, and Rock & Republic’s Ambition (pale gold iridescence) as the highlight. My goodness was it ever a striking combination! Loved it, and got several compliments from the Mr.’s family to boot (that never happens!). I’m consequently planning on repeating the look this year, and adding in a little microfine gold and chartreuse green glitter to kick it up a notch (raiding my Ben Nye stash for that!). Nothing like blingy green eyes and vibrant red hair to say HELLO CHRISTMAS!

  • Carolyn says:

  • Michelle says:

    I’m from South Korea, and my favorite makeup item to wear for the holiday is MAC’s pigment in bronze!

  • blkrox says:


    6) A teal smokey eye! MAC Mega Metal Shadow in Odalisque from lashline to just above the crease and smudged on my lower lashline, L’Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Teal on my upper lashline on lower waterline. A touch of Stila’s kitten on the inner corners of my eyes, MAC Bronzing powder in Refined Golden on my cheeks and MAC C-Thru Lipglass for a nude lip that lets a bit of my natural lipcolor through.

  • Kimi says:

    I just got NARS’ Mascate I’m planning to wear this holiday season.
