This set is all about the drama. Available in three shades – gold, silver and bronze – this is the perfect set for your holiday eye looks. The pigments are multitasking – use them as a shadow, eyeliner, highlighter…even a metallic lip if you’re feeling extra daring. The possibilities are endless. ($60)
Tom Ford Soleil Lip Foil: The one and only Tom Ford has jumped aboard the frosted lip train, meaning this trend is officially here to stay. Available in five beautiful colors, ranging from a classic nude to a vampy berry, each shade has a luxurious, foiled finish. Use the shades on their own, or blot it onto the center of your lips for some added dimension. ($53)
The Estee Edit Gritty & Glow Magnetic Eye and Face Palettes: This limited edition set features two magnetic palettes – one for your eyes, one for your face. At $58, it’s a pretty phenomenal deal considering Estee Edit is a high-end brand…this would make an incredible holiday gift. Use the shadows for a show-stopping smoky eye…that deep green shade is breathtaking. The face palette includes highlight, blush and bronzer shades that will flatter a wide range of skin tones. Plus, they can double as eyeshadows if you’re going for a more neutral look. ($58)
Huda Beauty Lip Contour Set: Your cheekbones aren’t the only feature that can benefit from contouring. This three-piece set is all about contouring your lips to create the illusion of a fuller, plumper pout. Use the liner to line your lips, then use the two liquid lips included in the set to fill them in. Use the darker shade on your lips, then dab the lighter hue in the center for a plumping effect. ($24)
Smashbox Cover Shot: Eye Palettes: This incredible Smashbox launch truly has something for everyone. They have just come out with seven different shadow palettes, each featuring eight shadows. From metallics to smoky to matte and bold, there’s something for every mood. The palettes are very compact, so they’re perfect for popping into your purse or traveling. I’m particularly intrigued by the very on-trend Ablaze, which is full of gorgeous oranges and cranberries. ($29)
Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush: Hourglass blushes live up to the hype. They are just so unbelievably beautiful – they give you the most perfect, ethereal, airbrushed glow. This trio of blushes features a bright pink, neutral and darker berry shade…something for every mood and look. While the set is pricey, it’s a splurge you won’t regret. The holidays are the time to treat yo’self! ($62)

It gives you that stunning ‘lit from within’ glow that will leave people wondering if you’re wearing a highlighter, or just have an exceptional skincare routine. Use a dot during the day on top of your foundation, or build it up at night for some extra drama. ($38)

There’s something so sexy and sultry about this scent, with its base notes of musk, vanilla and tobacco. You’ll instantly be exported to a smoky jazz club. Perfect for a major night out. ($125)
