As Christmas calls for a spending splurge and you wrap your head around what gifts to buy, don’t forget to pick up those makeup essentials for yourself too.Achieving the perfect look for your festive get together needn’t be difficult or costly so go on, treat yourself!
We’ll begin with a beauty winner this season in the form of a color galore palette, opening the doors to metallic shades! That’s right, gold, copper, bronze, silver and chrome from your eye shadow to your lips and even your nail polish, your look just wouldn’t be complete without a bit of shimmer and shine.
TOP TIP: When applying these shiny textures, remember your base coat. Wearing metallic make up requires a clean foundation to work from, matching your original tone (even on nails).
Try the OG New Sparkle Palette by The Organic Pharmacy

Next on the list is a popping lip color in classic red or mahogany brown. These colors are on trend and the perfect base for a gold tint to give your face that festive edge.
