6 Beauty Bag Must Haves for the Holiday Season

December 7th, 2020

The festive season is the perfect time to bring out the shimmery eyeshadow and try a bold red lip! Whether you are looking for holiday glam or barely there makeup for the beach, here are our makeup bag must-haves for the season.

1. Glamorous Lipstick | For a festive look
With its alluring colour and silky satin finish Glamorous Lipstick is the perfect holiday season hue – it’s all you need to create a festive look, as shown by makeup artist Chelsea Ellis below. The beautiful rich red with cool undertones is timeless and elegant, and the formula is enriched with all natural waxes, butters and oils, providing a moisture-rich lipstick that improves lip health with every application.

“This lipstick is a gorgeous colour and lives up to its name. Goes on very smoothly and the colour looks good on. Highly recommend it.” - Maureen

2. Thickening Mascara | The perfect partner for a classic red lip
The perfect partner for Glamorous lipstick is our Thickening Mascara in Jet Black. Mascara is an everyday essential, and our natural mascara is gentle and buildable, making it a versatile choice for every occasion. The award winning formula contains New Zealand Halloysite Clay, Active Manuka Honey, Grapefruit Extract, and Vitamin E to keep your lashes nourished and healthy.

“In my experience, this is the best mascara I've ever purchased (and I've bought a fair few different brands over the years). It really opens up the eyes - on weekends I just wear this on its own (no liner or shadow), yet still feel 'made up'. My lashes definitely look longer when I wear it, too. I wear contact lenses so need my eye make-up to be gentle, and this mascara definitely delivers on that.” - Tina

3. Mineral Eyeshadow | For a hint of shimmer
Used by makeup artist Chelsea Ellis, our certified natural eyeshadows in Shell and Kauri add a beautiful soft colour and shimmer for a festive look. Eyeshadow shade Shell can also be used as a highlighter for a soft blush pink glow. Our eyeshadow range includes 10 stunning shades, formulated with natural ingredients to be safe and gentle on the eyes.

4. Earth Eye Pencil | For softly defined eyes

To complete her holiday makeup look, Chelsea Ellis softly enhanced her eyes with our certified natural eye pencil in Earth. This warm brown shade is perfect for enhancing the eyes without being too intense, and can double as a brow pencil. Our certified natural eye pencils are also available in Midnight, a deep black, and Storm, a soft grey shade.

“It’s easy to take with me when travelling during the holidays, and I can use for my eyes and eyebrows.” - Michelle

5. Summer Bronze Pressed Powder | For a natural sun kissed glow.
We consider this the ultimate no-makeup look staple – lightly brush this certified natural powder over your cheekbones to give a beautiful bronzed glow. Our award winning bronzer can also be used to contour, and makes a beautiful neutral eyeshadow for warm, summery makeup looks. Fragrance-free and suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

“One of my all-time fave products! Still use this every single day.” - Joi

6. Active Brightening Serum | For flawless application
Did you know your favourite brightening serum can also be used as a primer? While it's works to promote a more even, balanced complexion, it also helps your makeup to sit better and last longer while nurturing and protecting skin. 

"The slightly matte finish makes a perfect base to directly apply make-up over. I found my mineral make-up applied more smoothly and evenly over this serum and as it plumped fine lines, my make-up didn’t settle into these or crease. Using this serum as a base also increased the staying power of my make-up." - Testers Feedback, Free From Skincare Awards 2020.
