The Christmas season is the most wonderful time of the year to buy beauty products. It’s when major brands release limited-edition palettes filled with possibilities. These holiday sets are not only great gifts, but also perfect travel companions. Whether your cosmetics fit into one small case or occupy a full closet, these palettes are an intelligent investment for an easy-to-pack, five-minute face.
Trip Styler Tips
- Look for palettes with high-quality brushes to get the most bang for your buck.
- If you don’t wear make-up, look for travel-size skincare and haircare kits.
- If a palette is filled with dark or bright shades you'll never wear, don't be seduced by a deal!
