How to say “Holidays” in plum & peach | The festive face of the Karl for Shu Prestigious Bordeaux palette

Somewhere in the cross-cultural translation between “holiday kitsch” and “makeup,” the reds and greens of the Holiday season ended up being translated into… well, plums and peaches, in the case of the Karl Lagerfeld for shu uemura Prestigious Bordeaux palette.
Between moody-but-colourful smokey eyes and a bright, plush lip, though, the Prestigious Bordeaux palette still manages to carry off the Holiday vibe. Paired with defined brows, heavy lashes, and a seriously sculpted cheek, I think this look would still fit in well at a quiet winter soirée or after-hours office party — it easily creates a festive look, but one that’s a little less glaringly Christmas.
