The holiday season is most definitely in the offing: seasonal TV adverts are rolling in, the shopping frenzy is slowly starting to gain momentum and Christmas lights are being switched on. With that, festive beauty collections from the likes of Chanel and Dior have been springing up everywhere.
 
Chanel delved into its history and used Gabrielle Chanel’s first fine jewellery collection as a starting point. Silver and gold are the key shades for the seasons, whilst La Flamboyante lipstick and the Phenix Vernis add a dash of red to the collection for a touch of festive glamour.

Model of the moment Cara Delevingne is the face of YSL’s ‘Wildly Gold’ Christmas beauty collection. YSL’s famous Touch Éclat features amongst the limited edition offerings, having been a given a leopard print makeover for the occasion.


Dior is also going gold for the festive season, from luxury eye shadow palettes such as Golden Reflections and the Diorific face powder, right down to the iconic gold packaging. You can't get much more luxurious than that. 

We all love a Tom Ford lipstick and it looks like the designer is out to treat us this Christmas. The Holiday Colour collection puts a focus on the lips, with the launch of eight shades of matte lipstick. The good news? Some of the new colours will become part of the permanent collection after the Christmas season. 
 
Givenchy, has decided to things a little differently and has gone for a darker look, with a collection called “Folie de Noirs”. A celebration of all things black, the make-up collection comprises a shimmering Ombre Couture eye shadow, intense nail polishes and a Rouge Interdit deep plum lipstick.
 
In short, when it comes to beauty, Christmas 2014 is nothing but glitter, shimmer and sparkle.
