Sugar, spice and everything nice! Here at makeup.com, we LOVE the holiday season, and what better way to show our affection for this time of year than by wearing classic and festive seasonal scents? Sweeten or spice up your beauty routine with our favorite holiday-themed scents and flavors that range from body lotions and washes to lip and cheek shades.
This fresh scent can be incorporated into more than just your morning coffee or holiday cookies. After a long week with family and friends, treat your skin to an invigorating peppermint scrub using Malin + Goetz Peppermint Body Scrub, and relax with a Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint Candle for some ultimate post-holiday downtime. And for smooth lips that can win the battle against winter weather, use Maybelline Baby Lips in Peppermint.
Take your holiday spirit to the next level with a sweet-scented lippie like Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 in Cranberry or NYX Professional Makeup Intense Butter Gloss in Cranberry Pie. Leave your skin feeling buttery soft with a Kiehl’s Turmeric and Cranberry Seed Energizing Mask and sport some berry colored nails to match your mood using Essie in Very Cranberry.
Vanilla is one of our favorite scents year round, and it takes over come holiday season. If you love vanilla as much as we do, give your body the gift of this aroma-packed trio. Start by showering with Kiehl’s Aromatic Blends: Vanilla & Cedarwood- Liquid Body Cleanser for a lightweight hint of vanilla, cedarwood and amber, and then massage away your winter skin woes with Aesop Rejuvenate Intensive Body Balm. Finish it off with Kiehl’s Vanilla and Cedarwood Aromatic Blends Fragrance — it smells like sugar, spice and everything nice. If you can’t get enough vanilla, add a candle to the mix — we love the Bath and Body Works 3 Wick candles in Vanilla Bean Noel.
Not all traditional holiday scents are as sweet as candy. If your home smells like spices this season, try spritzing on a fragrance like YSL Splendid Wood with cedarwood essence and cardamom notes. If spice is your mood rather than your scent, then picking up the Lipstick Queen Sugar Spice & All Things Nice Trio is a must.
It’s also the perfect time of year to wear dark lipstick, and we love the Huda Beauty Matte Liquid Lipstick in Spice Girl. While it may not smell like spice, this shade sure does remind us of the holidays!
Fig is the forgotten holiday scent that we can’t get enough of — whether it’s in our pies or our beauty products. Indulge in a fig scented fragrance like Malin + Goetz Moroccan Fig Eau De Toilette or set the mood with a Diptyque Figuier Room Spray. And if you’re more into little hints of fig throughout the day, the Fresh Beauty Sugar Fig Lip Treatment is a must have for your stash.
