5 must-have holiday beauty trends

The holiday season is fast approaching. That means time to sit back, relax and take some time to discover this season’s latest beauty trends. From grown up glitter to introducing collagen into your skincare routine, we’ve rounded up the 5 beauty trends you need on your radar this season.


Collagen is a key component for the health of your skin. A building block for elasticity, collagen restores skin’s elasticity which in turn helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Incorporate it into your skin routine with the Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream SPF30. Enriched with a potent blend of Padina Pavonica and Ginkgo Biloba, the sumptuous skin smooths over the skin to provide ultimate suppleness.

Grown up glitter

Long gone are the days where glitter is saved for discos and the festival scene. Subtle, grown up glitter is the way to go this season. The most wearable way to where glitter is on the eyes. Start with a base of smoky, metallic colour then add a top coat of adult’s only for a dinner-to-disco look.

Get glossed

Whilst a festive red lip will always be in at this time of year, we’re loving going back to basics with a clear, sparkly gloss. We love this Crystal Clear Lip Gloss from Elizabeth Arden, the refreshing spearmint flavour will also leave your lips tingling.

Scraped back hair

Forget big bouncy blow dries, this season is all about a strong, androgynous look. To achieve the perfectly slicked back pony, lightly spray your hair with water and apply a spritz of Wella Professionals Eimi Stay Styled Spray to keep the look in place. Team this look with an androgynous outfit like a blazer dress to complete the fierce look.

 Gothic nails

Nothing screams sophistication than short, dark round nails. Perfect for the party season, black nails go with every outfit. This award-winning nail polish from Nailberry delivers long-wearing, high-shine colour that will last all season long.
