Spotlight on Christmas pallets

Spotlight on Christmas pallets

Velvet textures, vibrant mother-of-pearl, pigments with perfect coverage: the makeup palettes make a comeback in Santa’s hood. Our selection of the most beautiful items to ask for the holidays 2020.

Limited editions or winter collection, the make-up palettes are a must on our Christmas wish-lists. Here is a selection of the most beautiful models spotted by the editorial staff.

Makeup palettes in festive clothes
Once again this year, the beautiful cases contain sparkling colors with exceptional eye shadows, lipsticks and blushes. Whether you prefer satin, glittery or matte effects, there is something for every taste and desire.

Note: a complete palette is one that offers perfect neutrals and high-pigment shades to harmonize the look.

Sparkling eyes
The key holiday trend? The smokey-eye, that famous « smoky eye » that we no longer present.

On the color side, we prefer dark shades such as brown, purple, gray or even black on blue eyes (to be blurred as much as possible to avoid the « patchy » effect or drooping eyes). On green eyes, we opt for plum tones, which awaken and bring brightness to the eyes. Finally, we bet on warm or copper tones, such as brown or gold, for a smoky on black eyes. 

The right gestures for successful eye makeup: apply neutral eye shadows on the upper eyelid and use the more sustained shades as a liner, with the possibility of adding a touch of sparkling color in the center of the mobile eyelid. You can also apply dark matte eyeshadows such as brown, black or gray in the outer corner of the eye to enlarge the look.

Festive lips
A ruby red or a beautiful burgundy are perfect to highlight the mouth on festive days. Matte or satin finish, each person can choose the texture that suits them. The more seasoned can be tempted by the shaded lips trend, a mix of two lipstick colors that allows you to play with contrasts.

And for those who wouldn’t dare to play the big game, they can bet it all on a gloss effect lipstick, more discreet, but which always makes its little effect.

A luminous complexion
To perfect the whole, we illuminate the cheekbones, the arch of the eyebrows, the Arch of Cupid (top of the lips) and the bridge of the nose with a touch of illuminator. If the palette does not contain any, a satin eye shadow in pink or gold shades will do the trick perfectly.
