Q&A: Thanksgiving 911

The Most Beautiful Makeup Trends for Holiday 2014



Makeup collections for the 2014 holiday season have officially launched, and they're everything you'd expect for that special time of year. Luxury beauty brands like Chanel and Dior feature rich red lips and cool-tone smokey eyes highlighted with silver and gold.

The Chanel highlighting powder pictured above isn't a typical highlighting powder intended to blend with a contouring powder; it's rather the icing on the cake. Brush it over eye shadow or blush to give your regular evening makeup a holiday glow. Try Maybelline New York Expert Wear Eyeshadow Singles in Silver Lining or the L'Oreal Paris Wear Infinite Eye Shadow Singles in Golden Sunset for a more affordable option in shimmery metallic shadows.

The Dior Golden Shock collection for holiday 2014 also blends bright reds with metallic shimmer. The 5-color limited edition Golden Shock eyeshadow palette comes in two different sets - one with blue and silver shades and one with purples and gold, each with various finishes in matte and shimmer to create a dramatic multi-tone look. Much like the new Chanel highlighter, the Dior Golden Shock Illuminating Pressed Powder can be used over blush, eyeshadow, or on the body for a holiday glow. For a subtle all-over shimmer, try Olay Quench Daily Lotion Plus Shimmer Body Lotion.

The Dior Golden Shock nail polish comes in a vampy purple, classic red, and two shimmery shades. Top any of them with the Dior Golden Leaf Effect Top Coat. Of course I've got a budget option on that one for you too! Try the Sally Hansen Treatment Big Glitter Top Coat Nail Color in Gold-Flecks. For an affordable red lipstick worthy of the holidays, try the Maybelline New York ColorSensational Lipcolor in Red Revival. This post contains affiliate content.
