Behind the Sticks | Episode 23: Team Holiday Must-Haves
Written by Amy Kandora December 03, 2020
The holiday season is finally here! For this BTS episode, our team wanted to share with you our favorite beauty sets + makeup products to wear for the holidays. Whether you decide to give them as a gift or keep them for yourself, we have everything from shimmery shadows to shiny lips! Read on for our team's must-have beauty products!
Favorite Holiday Set: The Founder Edit Set (of course!)
My favorite set for Holiday is our Founder Edit Set. These shades + products are part of my everyday routine year-round! The concealer wakes up my whole face, no matter how tired I am and the blush + bronzer give me the perfect pop of color and sculpted glow. And of course, the Lip Glaze in Paris Pink is my favorite shade - its so moisturizing and looks good on everyone with just a hint of shiny pink.
Favorite Products for Holiday: Matte Lip Crayon in Tuscan Wine, Brow Pencil in Mocha, Highlight Stick in Maldives Luminescent
I love a bold lip for the holidays and Tuscan Wine is the perfect shade of deep red! I pair it with a fully defined brow and a touch of highlighter all over for a natural yet dressed up look for the Holidays. And if I need a bit of moisture, I just use the shiny balm on the other side of my lip crayon for a touch of hydration!
Favorite Holiday Set: The Resort From Home Collection
Our new cream matte shadows are everything - I’m soooo obsessed with brown + nude shadows and these have a really chic matte finish. They’re super wearable shades that you can use for everyday or build up for a more intense look. I love that Mojave Sand is a little darker than my own eyelid and can create a great base for the rest of my eye makeup. Curaçao Pecan is great to add some subtle depth to my lids and bring attention to my eyes. I use Belgium Truffle as a thicker eyeliner at the inner corners + outer edges of my eye for a cat-like look or I’ll apply it all over my lid and sheer it out with the built-in brush for a cool brown smokey eye. Porto Purple is a pretty muted mauve that is a nice way to add color without it being overwhelming. And this set comes in our new Floral Bag, which makes it so cute to give as a gift.

Favorite Products for Holiday: Lip Glaze in Georgia Peach, Tinted Face Stick in Waikiki Tan and Blush Stick in Bora Bora Coral
For the Holiday season these are my three go to products (though I love a luminous, fresh look any time of the year!). I use the Tinted Face Stick to even out my skin tone, pack on blush for a super bright look, and pop on Georgia Peach to bring together the peachy look.

Favorite Holiday Set: Holiday Best Sellers Set
This is my favorite set because it has everything I need for a defined but natural look! I I love that it covers all the bases (eyes, lips and cheeks) + takes the guesswork out of what I am going to wear that day, which I am thankful for. (Beauty Hack: In addition to using it on my lips, I also use Florence Fig as a blush! I love the natural flush it gives me when used with the Highlight Stick.)

Favorite Products for Holiday: Good Vibes Mascara, Shadow Crayon in Burgundy Shimmer and Eye Pencil in Santorini Black Sand
I love creating a holiday smoky eye look with our Shadow Crayon in Burgundy Shimmer and our Eye Pencil in Santorini Black Sand. Mascara is a must-have for me to help brighten up my eyes and face! :)
