Published Nov 12, 2011
Astrological scents, luminescent skin, and space-age sparkle—clearly, we’re loving everything cosmic in beauty this season. The emerging galaxy nail trend complements the new star-kissed products launching for the holidays. Get inspired by the night sky and this celestial beauty lineup!
Perfect for holiday parties and special occasions, this fine-milled, colorless powder imparts an invisible glow on your arms, shoulders, and décolletage. The sleek black packaging and vintage spray pump add a hint of glamour to your everyday winter beauty routine.
Glittering manicures continue to stay popular this season with Deborah Lippmann’s sparkling nail collection. Our favorite of the bunch? The milky, iridescent shade appropriately named Stairway to Heaven. This pale glitter topcoat will add a twinkling touch to lackluster tips and toes.
Guerlain’s cult-classic highlighting pearls are reinvented in a cool, silvery palette. Just as stars illuminate the atmosphere, these “meteorites” add a surreal radiance to the skin. The deep teal packaging is totally swoon-worthy—a gorgeous addition to any vanity.
Drawing inspiration from her fascination with the cosmos, perfumer and Strange Invisible Perfumes founder Alexandra Balahoutis created a fragrance collection of 12 astrologically inspired scents. Each zodiac fragrance is a complex custom blend of various notes designed to honor its namesake. At $275, consider this holiday splurge an investment in your astro education.
Virgo, Pisces, Libra, Aries, Scorpio, Taurus have already launched. Sagittarius, Gemini, Capricorn, Cancer, Aquarius, and Leo will launch in November, December, and January.
Hair also deserves a stellar finish. A little shimmer on a sleek hairstyle can add a luminous sheen that catches the light beautifully. To attain a truly starry—not greasy—effect, concentrate the shimmer at the tips of the hair, and softly mist the shimmer spray up for subtle and lustrous ombré locks.
Lips look radioactive with Urban Decay’s latest lacquered stunners. The thick formula is infused with holographic shimmer that adds a three-dimensional effect. Dab a little onto the center of your bottom lip for just a hint of star shine.
