The holiday season is around the corner and I can't wait. Would you believe me if I told you I was playing Christmas music over the weekend?! Short of wearing knee-high Christmas socks and burning evergreen candles, I was all in it! I'm not sure what came over me, but I was in that kind of mood. Mariah Carey carrying most of the evening with her solidly class Christmas album from '94. Love that record.
The mood had me thinking of the super chic holiday sparkle we're about to be inundated with. Beauty and makeup seem to have the biggest impact in appealing to our senses. A pretty lip, eye or cheek, even during the day, can go a long way. And brands go the mile to bring us some fabulous looks even the simplest chica will love to play with.
I've been obsessed with a shimmery eye palette Estée Lauder and Bobbi Brown had early this year... I don't remember which collection it came from, but if my boyfriend notices it every time I wear it and likes it, I'm thinking it's a good thing! How many men really notice the pretty sparkle? Every time.
Seriously. Keeper. For sure.

Her day and night approach in some of the collection's prods just work. It makes it super easy to settle on a look for either time of day. The lip and eye palettes have that appeal and are too cute for the for satisfying that all-in-one need when you're out all day.

Two layers never hurt anyone.
(Oh, and the packing is just delicately pretty, as always, especially with the limited editions.)
And because my makeup "wardrobe" doesn't stop growing and seemingly isn't going in the opposite direction, I've been looking out for some pretty baskets or containers to store it all. My day-to-day products have to be out and quickly accessible. This dotted handmade bowl by Haitian artists, and offered as part the Heart of Haiti collection at Macy's, came in super handy last week after visiting some of my friends at L'Oreal and Cargo which happily sent me off with a handful of hair and makeup goodness.
What do use to store your makeup? I'm actually more curious to know how you all organize all the goodies! I can't figure it out! By color, brand, type?
Let's chat about this!
