There are lot of nice things about the holidays (friends and family, gifts, dessert--you know, the usual), but among my favorite is the tacit permission to bring your shiniest self to any and all holiday gatherings straight through into the new year. That's practically an invitation to experiment with fun makeup options you might shy away from during the rest of the year, and we're here to help with that.
Below, we've selected six beauty products that are particularly holiday-appropriate because they're all, well, gold. This season has a very specific color palette, and who doesn't love a little theme dressing?
Inglot Lipstick in 212
$13 via Macy's
This lipstick is fairly sheer when worn, but doesn't it look cool in the tube?
Lancôme Vernis in Love Golden Top Coat
$15.50 via Macy's
Your nails are probably the only place it's safe to wear gold leaf on your body, and here's your opportunity to do just that.
MAC Pigment in Old Gold
$22 via Macy's
MAC pigments are one of the most versatile tools in makeup; depending on your ingenuity, this one could be used for dozens of different things.
Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner in Diamond Gold
$23 via Sephora
I love a black cat eye, but so does everyone else at every party you're going to. Switch things up with a little swipe of gold.
Peter Thomas Roth 24k Gold Pure Luxury Cleansing Butter
$55 via Sephora
Sometimes you want to skip the party and stay home to pamper yourself; I get that.
Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow in Vintage Black Gold
$32 via Sephora
This is one of the coolest, most unique beauty products I've ever used. The application takes a bit of practice, but once you get it down, the result is a striking, multidimensional, totally gorgeous eye look that's surprisingly wearable.
