Professional Makeup Artist Max May

Aside from your last minute Christmas shopping hassle, don’t forget to pause and plan for your holiday party looks! These essentials from Aussie’s own Celebrity Makeup Artist, Max May, will help you pull a celebratory makeup look in no time.

3 items women need this holiday season for a beauty-licious good time 

1. Charlotte Tilbury Bronzer and Illuminator — the perfect contour and highlighter that suites every skin color.

2. Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler — I don’t do makeup without curling lashes, this is the key to the perfect lash.

3. L’Oréal Paris Brow Professional Pencil in Light Brown, Blonde or Brunette. I love a warm colored brow, it makes eyes pop and brings the color out in any skin tone.

After you’ve completed your look, a few spritzes of SKINDINAVIA makeup finishing spray will keep your skin looking flawless and shine-free until your midnight Instagram #Christmas posts. Glam up responsibly!
