It’s almost that time of the year again where a mix of soirees, shows and family gatherings line up to cram the season’s calendars. Skip the getting-ready guesswork and make more time for festive fun by determining your go-to party aesthetic way beforehand — and doing it now couldn’t be better. Coming to our beauty rescue is Yves Saint Laurent Beauté’s shimmering new holiday collection: Sparkle Clash.

An explosion of stars, a celebration of sparkle, it’s a timely makeup line that goes against the adage of ‘more is more’. Lloyd Simmonds, creative director makeup of YSL Beauté attests of his latest creation, “The idea behind this exclusive holiday look is to totally re-think that old-fashioned way of painstakingly applying layers of cosmetics. I wanted to put the fun back into glamour, and make everything easy to apply, so that even the makeup feels like a party. Isn’t that what the season is all about?”

Here, discover our favourites from the fete-ready collection to amp up your next bash beauty look.

Multi-Usage Palette Collector Sparkle Clash Edition
Ever the rule-breaker, this couture makeup palette is filled with the holiday season’s essential colours, but not without a clashing juxtaposition of gold and silver decorating its glitzy exterior. Held within is a highlighter with pink and gold undertones; four eye shadows in shades of plum, gold, bronze and metallic rose; and two lip colours of the perfect nude and a dramatic red.

Rouge Pur Couture Collector Sparkle Clash Edition
The classic lipstick is resplendent in a new dress of its own. Outside, a splattering of stars, gold and silver meteors envelopes the limited edition case. Inside, a signature lip colour is transformed into a special one-time only gift, thanks to the unique stars embedded onto the waxy bullet. The strong opaque colours include a shade line-up of red, orange, nude, and dusky pink.
