With the holiday season quickly approaching, there’s no better time to start planning your holiday beauty looks. To help get you started, we’ve crafted three stunning looks featuring brand new shades in our favorite formulas (found in our 2019 Muse Holiday Collection) to get you from Thanksgiving to New Years Eve without missing a beat. Want more Muse Collection? See why Allure editors can’t stop raving about our newest sets!
For each of the three holiday beauty looks, it’s essential to start with well prepped skin. Choose products based on your unique skin type to cleanse, tone and moisturize. This ensures your makeup will lay smoothly and you’ll end up using less product in the long run. Then, use our easy 4 step process for complexion perfection by applying a primer, base, concealer and setting powder. For a natural, semi-matte finish, try Pressed Base or Satin Cream Foundation with Perfecting Powder and for a stunning, dewy finish, try Luminous Liquid Foundation SPF 18 or Loose Base with Luminous Setting Powder.
Frida + Billie
Featuring four Cream Stay Shadow Sticks (The Frida Shadow Set) and a Suede Matte Crayon (The Billie Lip Duet), this look provides a stunning take on simple, earthy shades. The warm undertones are perfect for softening up a monochromatic smokey eye and make a great addition to a neutral palette.
- Apply Cream Stay Shadow Stick in Latte to lid, crease and lower lashline, then blend with 301 Eye Base Brush.
- Apply Cream Stay Shadow Stick in Canyon to 303 Detail Blender Brush for a softer application, then lightly blend into crease and along lower lashline.
- Add Cream Stay Shadow Stick in Bonbon to entire lid and crease, then blend softly with 304 Dual Fiber Eye Brush.
- Apply Cream Stay Shadow Stick in Solstice to 307 Petite Smudge Brush then apply to inner corner of eyes for detailed highlighting.

Georgia + Ella
We promise the rich, cool shades featured in this second look won’t disappoint. The darker Cream Stay Shadow Sticks (The Georgia Shadow Set) make the perfect contrast against the petal pink Suede Matte Crayon (The Ella Lip Duet), for an effortlessly cool vibe.
