Ac­ces­sories to brighten your hol­i­day sea­son

With the fes­tive cir­cuit in full swing, even the min­i­mal­ists among us want to shine a lit­tle brighter. Adding ba­sic ac­ces­sories like a tex­tured clutch, strappy metal­lic san­dals or a be­jew­elled watch is an easy and ef­fort­less way to cre­ate in­stant shine. Makeup can be a lit­tle trick­ier, but “prod­ucts that pro­vide ra­di­ance can be a game changer,” says Stephen Sardella, trainer for Shi­seido Canada. Use our guide to cre­ate a hol­i­day look that works for you.


Ap­plied with your fin­ger­tips, a creamy blend­able high­lighter de­liv­ers trans­for­ma­tive ben­e­fits. Sardella is a fan of the new Aura Dew col­lec­tion, which sus­pends ul­tra-fine Ja­panese pearls in a pil­lowy tex­ture. Fo­cus on the cheek­bones, bridge of the nose or eye­lids.


An eye-catch­ing hol­i­day mani can set the mood. This year, Rita Re­mark, lead nail artist for

Essie Canada, will be sport­ing Mil­lion Mile Hues, a gold chrome from the winter col­lec­tion. Flaw­less re­sults for re­flec­tive pol­ish come from a light-handed ap­proach. “It’s all about prod­uct con­trol,” says Re­mark. “You want to ap­ply a shim­mer­ing shade with as few strokes as pos­si­ble.”


“Fin­ish the eyes with a light pearl­ized shim­mer or sparkling tex­ture on the cen­tre of the up­per lid,” says Sardella. “This tech­nique cap­tures light beau­ti­fully and com­mands at­ten­tion.”


And the last word in sparkling makeup? Go for gloss. “A glis­ten­ing fin­ish on the lips con­tin­ues to stay rel­e­vant for day or night,” says Sardella.
