The Hermès packaging! The Dyson technology! The thrill of going a little harder on the eyeliner (your flash photos will thank you). As holiday soirees and their sparkling invitations start to roll in, the getting-ready-to-party beauty prep is as much a part of the experience as the scene itself.
Vogue editors’ rituals are designed to match every time budget—and festive dress code (think: “extravagant” or “come as you are”). Sometimes, it’s perfecting a five-minute face (Merit has a kit for that) and getting the signature cocktails in order. Sometimes, it’s freehanding a red lip (you’ll find Gucci Beauty lipstick in more than one editor’s bag) and calling a car. And sometimes, it’s lighting a bunch of Burnin’ for You candles, hitting play on a trusted mix, and filling a bubble bath to soak the day away before transforming into a social creature of the night.
Below, 4 editors (Lilah Ramzi, Julie Tong, Maddy Fass, and Arden Fanning-Andrews) provide their must-have, holiday beauty tools and products.
