During the holidays, discover a standout look with the latest shades and formulas – or rely on our more classic but always on-trend products. Every year, holiday cosmetic essentials can include a bold red lipstick, long-lasting mascara and a breathable, medium-to-full coverage foundation. If you’re looking for edgier, trending colours or products, our annual limited-edition holiday collection always features the year’s most spectacular formulas, including exclusive kits for the season.
When it comes to holiday makeup, create a look with shades and formulas that highlight your best features to look eye-catching in-person — as well as in pictures and videos.
Wing it out with a liquid eye liner to create dramatic, defined eyes and lift lashes with a volumizing mascara. Swipe on a stunning lip with a classic red or one of our holiday-exclusive shades. Pro tip: Apply lip gloss during the day to subtly highlight your pout and switch to a bolder, brighter lipstick and liner for evening festivities.
Choose holiday party makeup that easily transitions from day to night. In the morning, opt for neutral eye shadows, concealer, mascara and a neutral lipstick or gloss. Turn up the drama at night by layering on a bolder eye shadow and eye liner, then swiping on a fierce lipstick that pops. Use a tint or gel for fuller brows.
Retro Matte Lipstick is the iconic product that made M∙A∙C famous, and our best-selling Ruby Woo is the ultimate holiday red lipstick shade. Its formula has an intense colour payoff that lasts all day. A high-shine lip colour can be more hydrating – a plus for the colder months – with a glossy-glam finish that’s stunning. Another hydrating option is a moisture-matte formula, like our innovative Powder Kiss Lipstick, which delivers a blur of soft-focus colour. Or, choose one of our many holiday-exclusive shades for the latest trending look and finish.
Gift big with everything from Pro palettes and limited-edition kits to holiday-exclusive formulas and shades. For the lipstick lover on your list, we have hundreds of shades in an array of finishes. For your lash-obsessed friend who needs a lift, gift them a lightweight mascara with a moulded brush, such as In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash Mascara. Or, sparkle all the way with our selection of bronzers, highlighters, glitters and pigments.
