confession: the stocking is always my favorite part of christmas because that’s where all of the beauty goodies are usually hiding. i have a swarm of cosmetic wishes this year and i can’t wait to see which ones come true.
1 – every celebrity and makeup artist under the sun claims cle de peau concealer ($70) to be life changing. it wins at everything from blending to coverage, texture and flawless concealing. it’s about time i bit the bullet. i need it.
2 – i need another neutral shadow like i need a hole in the head, but something about nars mississippi mermaid ($24) is calling to me. it’s the perfect champagne for an overall lid color, inner corner highlight and for brow bone brightening.
3 – these new blush cremes from clarins ($30) are gorgeous. if i could, i would hoard all four shades and cocktail them together for the prettiest in natural and smooth cheek color. bonus: natural oils and vitamin e give them a hydrating leg up over other options.
4 – this bottle promises volume, smoothness, conditioning, strength, and polish, all in one oil-free formula. with weightless shine, manageable body, heat protection, and even static control, living proof perfect hair day ($26) is everything i could ever want and more.
5 – i have learned to love applying my foundation with a dense rounded brush. make up for ever medium highlighter brush ($37) was recently recommended to me for the ultimate in flawless coverage and i can’t get my hands on it fast enough.
6 – overnight hydration masks are my sole winter skin salvation. dr. jart water fuse water-max sleeping mask ($48) locks in moisture bringing new meaning to “beauty sleep.” i love that it does not need to be washed off and works its magic all night long.
7 – and also, world peace.
happy christmas beauties! what’s on your wishlist this year?
