Holiday Look: All Aglow

Last night we put up the last of our ornaments on the tree and my son stood beside the twinkling lights illuminated and all aglow. It was such a precious moment! For brands like Prescriptives, their holiday collection, Aglow, was inspired by the light-catching effects against winter's frosty backdrop. Let your holiday look set you aglow in shimmery shades in all the right places.

1. Prescriptives Winter Reflections Warm Eye Color Quad ($54 CAD): I love neutrals and bronzy shades. These are my go-to colours for everyday when I'm not in the mood for something different. This was my first time trying Prescriptives eye shadows and I am impressed! Each shadow in this palette goes on velvety-soft. The pigment is amazing and the shimmery finish is just gorgeous. These are colours you can wear for day and night. Just swipe on Banana (far left) all over the lid and add Suede (2nd shade from left) to the center of lid and inner corner to brighten the eyes, and line the eyes with Chestnut (far right). If you're hurrying out to a party after work, swipe on Brunette (third colour on right) on the lid and contour and line with Chestnut for a dramatic effect. The compact comes with a mirror for those quick touch-ups! Also available in a Cool quad.

2. For that perfect luminous glow with a touch of colour, brush on Prescriptives Winter Reflections All Over Highlighter ($45 CAD) to the apples of the cheeks. It leaves a soft pink glow on the skin. If your cheeks are calling for a pop of colour, brush on your favourite blush and dust this highlighter over top for a luminous finish. You can also dust on lightly on the bridge of your nose and your chin for more radiance. These little pink and white balls provide a lot of pigment on your brush so tap the excess off onto a tissue.

3. Prescriptives Colorscope Lip Gloss in Rosy ($26 CAD) will have everyone wondering why your lips look so wonderfully plush. This soft pink pearly shade catches the light leaving a shimmery high-shine, pouty-full finish. I love this gloss on its own especially with a dramatic eye or over top of a lipstick for some extra oomph. You'll love this gloss for the non-stick factor and its ultra moisturizing qualities. Also available in Twinkling, Peachy, and Icy.

Have you tried Prescriptives Aglow Collection? Love it? Hate it?
