EDITOR'S LETTER

CELEBRATION MAKEUP

Didn't the year go by really, really quickly? We barely noticed the passing months because we've had such a blast at the GLOSSYBOX office—it has been a fun year of sourcing exciting new beauty brands and creating custom, limited edition boxes, and hearing your amazing feedback gives us motivation to do it all again. True to the New York spirit (where we are based), we are celebrating this holiday with gloss and glamour. We've got you covered on ideas for the perfect makeup to wear to your company holiday party or the chicest New Year's outfit to outshine everyone in the room. The entire GLOSSYBOX team wishes you a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year!

Stay warm and glossy, Beauty Editor

Celebration makeup

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Clueless on what makeup to pair with your sequined holiday dresses? Let us give you a helping hand with our holiday picks below.

Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation, $59

We didn't believe skin could look like porcelain until we tried this foundation. The formula miraculously blurs out imperfections and smoothens skin. We've even tested it out in front of the camera to make sure we'll look great in our holiday pictures (with this, we will!).

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Classic Red, $19

To ensure you get a crisp line when applying lipstick, make sure you have one of these in your makeup bag!

Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow in Kitten, $32 The holiday season is about the only time we can get away with being decked out in glitter and sparkle, but why stop at shoes and clothing? This gleaming eyeshadow formula is practically made to go with your holiday dresses.

Ardency Inn PUNKER Unrivaled Volume & Curl Lash Wax, $24 This mascara contains a "lash wax" that creates ridiculous volume and holds curl like no other, making it a perfect complement to your sparkly holiday eyes.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge in Iconic Red, $24 If there is a definitive time to wear red lips, it's during the festive holiday season. Make Up For Ever is famed for its long-wearing formulas—when better to put that claim to test than an all-night holiday party?

list WINK Eyelash & Brow Enhancer, $39

Here's a great story—a group of cosmeticscrazed scientists from MIT wanted fuller lashes, but didn't want to suffer through the upkeep and perils of extensions anymore. With no solution in sight, they made their own lash growth product to permanently fill in their sparse lashes. They also tried it on their brows and found that it works as well!

CASWELL-MASSEY Gianna Rose Scottie Dog Soap, $21 We are puppy people at GLOSSYBOX, which means there's nothing better than a scented dog-shaped soap to cheer up a bathroom sink. Just look at this little Scottie, it even comes with a bow!

ORIBE The Black & Gold Collection, $61

This is what we think of as the gold standard in dry shampoo. With incredibly luxe packaging and superior performance—no white residue and instant body to fine, limp hair—this Oribe hair spray is a treat to use and behold.

THIS DECEMBER WE ARE HEAD OVER HEELS FOR‌

HENRI BENDEL On Point Flex Bracelet, $128 BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed - Rose Gold, $38

Add some dazzle to your wrist with this sure-to-impress sparkler ... Created with Swarovski Elements, this is certainly an eye catching addition to any wardrobe. Perfect for all seasons but a must-have piece for your holiday circuit.

Talk about a holiday glow! We've seen plenty of highlighters and illuminators, but rarely do they come in a rose gold hue. This powder has such a creamy texture and provides a warm glow on the cheeks, perfect for the holidays and beyond.

TOCCA Beauty Meet the Girls Gift Set, $62 Gift sets are great for those hesitant to commit, and with the abundance of products out there, why stop at one when you can try out ten different ones? This set is a great introduction to the Tocca scent collection, perfect for a friend, mother, or daughter who's newly venturing into the world of perfume.
