From gift exchanges with friends and visits with family to seemingly endless soirées and gatherings, the end of the year can feel like a whirlwind of events — especially now that things are (safely) opening up again. After a year of Zoom events in lieu of IRL festivities, this season feels particularly busy with everyone eager to make up for lost time.
Getting a handle on your holiday season wardrobe is half the battle, but festive occasions also require a solid beauty plan in place. Whatever vibe you’re going for, it helps to know which shade of lipstick or what type of scent you’ll want to wear during date night or an upcoming dinner party. (It can also make getting out the door that much faster.)
That's why, in partnership with Vince Camuto, we took the legwork out of selecting a beauty look for different occasions you'll likely encounter this season. From a cheerful perfume that'll leave a trail of nectarine and jasmine wherever you go to a rich hand cream that'll soften even the driest of knuckles, these essentials are perfect for any event (and they make great gifts, too, if you still need some ideas). Keep reading to see — and shop — the beauty products that'll carry you through the holiday season and beyond.
