Your Above-the-Mask Makeup Game Is About to Get a Serious Upgrade

Sponsor Content Created With Chantecaille

Now that masks are daily accessories, I feel like I need a little something extra in my beauty routine to feel confident. My tried-and-true mascara-concealer situation just isn't cutting it anymore. I'm after that makeup look that makes my eyes pop—something that reflects the holiday season but still feels like me. So I got shopping, turning to beauty brand Chantecaille because it's important to me to give back this time of year and the philanthropically minded brand is always donating to environmental causes. The Vanishing Species Luminescent Eye Shades went straight into my cart because I knew I was looking for shimmery eye shadows, and of course, I'm going to buy the makeup collection benefitting animal conversation nonprofits.

The two newest Luminescent Eye Shades are Crane, a beautiful smokey burgundy, and Zebra, a rose gold hue. Both are perfect for creating a festive holiday look. Here, I blend the pearlescent pink Zebra shade from the corners of my eyes into the warm champagne Cheetah shade to create a golden pop all over my eyelids. The powder formula feels so silky smooth even when I add multiple layers. And since you probably noticed how great my lashes look, too, I'll share that I decided to treat myself to the brand's best-selling Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara because I noticed it has nourishing rose oil plus growth peptides to lengthen and thicken your lashes with each wear. I've been using it since Thanksgiving, and I've genuinely noticed a difference in the length of my lashes, making me feel more confident on even my makeup-free days. And with these champagne and rose gold hues making my eyes sparkle, I seriously feel unstoppable. Want to recreate my golden glow or send a special gift to your best friend this holiday season? I've shopped out Chantecaille's best-selling makeup and skincare products below.

Copy Editor, Branded Content

Aralyn Beaumont joined Who What Wear as the copy editor for branded content after a career in food media. Years of poring over intricate recipes with a fine-tooth comb and working with high-profile chefs has prepared her well for working with fashion's top brands while honoring Who What Wear's voice. Her background as a research editor makes her a finicky editor who will probably care too much about making sure all copy is as factually accurate and aligned with the house style guide as can be. Maybe it's because she's a Gemini, but her personal style is impossible to pin down: One day you'll see her in a turtleneck sweater tucked into a midi skirt with heeled boots, and the next, she'll be wearing mom jeans, a white Hanes tee, and classic Vans. At the end of the day, her style reflects her various moods. Sometimes it will be feminine and elegant, and others it will be grungy or androgynous. Certain things will always remain constant, though. She'll forever be on the hunt for the perfect pair of high-waisted jeans.
