Red and gold: Burberry Beauty does Christmas
Love Burberry Beauty? Be dazzled by their limited-edition makeup collection that comes encased in gold packaging

In case you're not yet turned on to it, you have to give Burberry Beauty a try. More than an offshoot of the fashion and accessories range, the makeup is beautifully formulated, stylishly-packaged and in the most gorgeous shades. In line with the chief creative officer Christopher Bailey's vision, the makeup is literally runway-ready, with makeup artists using the colours like iconic shade Oxblood on the models in their runway shows.

For the festive season, the new hue, Festive Gold, is available in a lipstick, lipgloss, nail polish and eye colour cream as well as a luminising powder. Scared of going too gilt-y? Fear not. Gold lipstick adds a wonderful lustre when worn over nude and burgundy shades and adds warmth when dusted over skin. The brand's star colour Military Red — a plush and universal red — also comes in the limited, gold packaging.
