The holiday time is now upon us. At least it is in the retail sense. Before you groan and cringe at the thought of holiday stress {relatives, cooking and baking, gifts oh my!}, remember that this also means new holiday makeup. Things are looking up again! M.A.C. has launched A Tartan Tale for holiday 2010. This collection takes a traditional plaid and true to M.A.C. form, turns it on its pretty little head. A Tartan Tale boasts an eclectic and irreverent mix of {mostly} limited edition colors, some colorful and playful, others dark and edgy. The perfect collection for holiday makeup when you want to turn up the volume and try new looks. This collection is rather large, with something for everyone. If you have never purchased any M.A.C. holiday items this would be a great year to start. Take advantage of these exclusive eye and lip kits, travel brush sets, and awesome gift ideas {try my gift giving approach: one for you one for me}.

Clients and friends alike often ask me what shades they should use to best accentuate their features. For the makeup novice especially, looking at a collection such as this could feel overwhelming-I like this palette but will it work for me? In an attempt to help, I’ve chosen the eye kits that are best suited for your particular eye color.

Brown eyes- 6 Beauties Play it Cool Eyeshadows- The cool silvers and greys will accentuate your chocolate brown eyes, making them look warmer in comparison.

Green or hazel eyes- 6 Dashing Lassie Eyeshadows-These warm metallic shades will bring out the green in your eyes, especially the Bronze and Buckwheat shades.

Blue eyes- 6 Reelers & Rockers Eyeshadows- This eye kit will make your baby blues look their bluest using warm golden shades such as Family Treasures and Gaelic Gold.

As a former M.A.C. employee, I can personally attest that holiday collections sell out rather fast. If you like any products and wish to purchase them I wouldn’t hesitate. All the items are beautifully packaged in tartan plaid-they are almost too pretty to wrap. This collection could easily cut down your gift list this year. You’ve got to love one stop shopping! Remember my gift giving approach, see above.
