Original post:

I am so excited to announce that I have gathered some of my favorite products to gift one lucky winner this holiday season, just because I love ya so much!

In the past I’ve hosted giveaways solely on my Instagram, BUT I’ve been neglecting my blogging buddies for far too long so THIS holiday season, it’s all about YOU guys!

But, enough about that: let’s get down to the good stuff! The giveaway!!

Drumroll, please!! 

#TamaraCanupHoliday giveaway is here!

Here it is! The full Tamara Canup Holiday 2017 Giveaway! This collection of products come from brands I’ve either worked with OR I would love to work with because I respect them so much.

Let’s start off with the Naked Cosmetics pigments!

Naked Cosmetics – Ivory and Ebony collections

If you haven’t heard of Naked Cosmetics or loose mica powders in the past, you are in for such a great. Mica pigments are at the base of every eyeshadow, lipstick, nail polish, EVERYTHING. These vegan, cruelty free pigments from Naked are just PURE color. They’re dense, light, and powdery, meaning a tiny bit goes a LONG way. I’ve had one little pot of this pigment last me over a year and I still have so much left.

Naked creates collections of pigments so I’m gifting you guys two of my favorites: Ivory and Ebony! The ivory pigments are bright, shimmery pigments perfect for highlight or adding soft, shimmery halo effects to your eyeshadow! The Ebony collection is a set of six deep, dark colors that are perfect for smoky eyes or adding some moodiness to lips and nails. I’m also throwing in another favorite from their Mother Nature collection! This pot (shown below) is called Mother Nature 06, a dual chrome pigment that looks sort of brick colored, but shines blue when light hits it. A GORGEOUS color that I KNEW you guys would love. 

Naked Cosmetics

To help you build every look possible with these pigments, I’ve included Naked Cosmetics Blending Kit! This collection of four products will set you on your path for doing everything possible with your new Ebony and Ivory Collection. You’ll receive a lot of Glossy Lips (just glide this onto lips before adding pigment and you have an instant gloss in whatever color you choose), a lot of Matte Shadow Base (this base/primer sets the stage on your eyes for pigment to grab onto, making it easier to blend AND keeping it where you want it), Facial Cream (a dab of this on your hand and a tiny bit of pigment creates a cream blush, bronzer, or highlight that will go on smoothly for precise application), and Clear Nail Polish (mix a small bit of the clear nail polish with any of your pigments for custom, one of a kind nail colors that will LAST for ages and looks gorgeous!)

Naked Cosmetics Facial Cream, Clear Nail Polish

Next up, I’m giving you the brand new, complete Kathleen Lights × Colourpop Dream collaboration, featuring the Dream St eyeshadow palette AND the entire Dream Team collection of lippies!!

Kathleen Lights × Colourpop Dream St eyeshadow palette and Dream Team lipstick collection

This palette is a true work of art. Each shadow delivers a soft but powerful punch of color (as is Colourpop’s tradition), with a blend of both solid matte shadows and perfect summers, absolutely ideal for holiday looks that range from full glam to low key neutral. This is a PERFECT holiday palette, which explains why they launched it just last week!

The lipsticks from the Dream Team collection are INSANE in all the best ways. Going from top to bottom: you’re getting Dreamy, an incredible matte neutral that you can wear year round; Rêver, a delicious matte red lipstick with brilliant orange undertones; and Moon Child, a fabulous nude gloss with GOLD SHIMMER that I WILL be wearing on New Year’s Eve this year. Because OMG. (AND if you’re not familiar with Colourpop, it is also a cruelty free cosmetics company. Because bunnies matter.)

Last but certainly not least, why kind of friend would I be if I didn’t make sure you have the tools necessary to pull off these looks??

EcoTools Soft Smokey Eye Brush Set

I am so happy to give you this gorgeous set of EcoTools eye brushes so you can create all the looks necessary to rock the holiday social gatherings you’ve got on your calendar! These four brushes are super soft, dipped in gold, AND come with this beautiful gold tube for keeping them pristine and safe. AND EcoTools gets a special place in my heart for being cruelty free, made from recycled materials, recyclable themselves, tree free, and the handles are renewable bamboo. So, we’re talking good products in every way possible.

  1. You know how I feel about the holidays, but I do love the lights. Twinkling lights everywhere in all different colors. We have them on our tree of course and hung up all over the living room. The lights are definitely the best part!

  2. My favorite thing about the holidays is spending time with my family. Family is the most important thing in the whole entire world. I love seeing my kids smiles and hearing their laughs on Christmas morning as they are tearing into the presents. I’ve been DYING for the Kathleenlights x Colourpop collection. But can’t afford it. I’m a single mother of 4, I can NEVER spare a penny for something for myself. So thank you for giving me the chance to win them. And even if I don’t, that’s ok. U was nice enough to give us all the opportunity to win them. Happy holidays everyone and good luck to all!!


  3. My favorite thing about the holidays is my family. I love spending time with my family and seeing the joy and excitement in my kids’ eyes.

  7. I absolutely love the holidays! Growing up I was a foster kid in family care and the aunt that I lived with always made a point to make sure that her children were more loved than we were so the holidays is a chance for my family and I to change that. I love it because I can not only change that for my kids but my siblings as well. It’s important to me that my siblings are always included and that my children know how important they are!

  8. My favorite thing about the holidays used to be spending it with my mom. Which that all changed in 2015 since she passed on Dec 21st. I can honestly say I don’t have any favorites at the moment, I’m honestly learning to cope spending this time without her. Which gets better every year, so instead of being sad, I try to do something in her honor.

  9. My favorite thing about the holidays is family time and traditions that we get to carry on with my nephews now that my siblings and I are grown! Plus, the spirit of giving makes the holidays unlike any other time of year. ❤️

  11. My favorite thing about the holidays is watching movies like “A christmas story” “How the grinch stole christmas” and “Elf”. I also love seing all of the beautiful lights and decorations & making chocolate chip cookies.


  12. My favourite thing about the holidays is being at home with my family. I’m a student away from home so Christmas gives me a good time away from work to just see my loved ones. I also like that you can eat a tonne and nobody cares!!
    My dad died this year, and we’re a really close family, so I’m kind of dreading Christmas this year, but we have loads of games to keep us occupied and we know he’ll be with us in spirit!


  13. My favorite thing about the holidays is getting together with all my family and decorating the house. I love putting up the beautiful decorations. I also love all the seasonal drinks and treats that come out during this time. It’s just a nice time because I’m able to relax and enjoy my time with family.

  14. My favorite thing about the holidays is the many wonderful traditions that make lasting memories with friends and family. I remember, when I was a little girl, baking with my mom while singing to the Michael Bublé Christmas album. I now have a love for cooking/baking. My family is big with traditions so every year we have to watch these certain movies together. Every year we take drives in neighborhoods looking at the beautiful lights. I love the simple, yet elegant ones. Big and over the top are cool, but the simple ones just make me feel as though they were put up with love and joy. I love our Christmas Eve traditions. We do all the fun things on Christmas Eve so we can enjoy family time Christmas Day. We always go to a good restaurant for breakfast and see a new movie in nice theatres. The past couple years it has been the Star Wars. Then every night on Christmas Eve we do a reenactment of Jesus’ birth. Including bathrobes and flashlights and music. I do feel silly, but we’ve done it for years. The same night we have a couple family gifts. It could be pajamas, pillows, cute matching journals, etc. Something cozy and fun. We wake up at Christmas around 5-6. My parents had to set a time a long time ago so we didn’t wake then up at 2 am. We sit and read some versus in the Bible to remind us it’s not all about the gifts and then we go to our basement. In the basement are the gifts from Santa. We then go to our living room and look at our stockings above the fireplace. The presents under this tree upstairs are family presents. Some from family and friends and some from each other. Each year we draw a name to see who would buy which siblings a present because there are too many of us, especially now that my oldest brother and sister are married with children each. The tree downstairs with the Santa presents has colorful lights and all the ornaments crafted in elementary while the one upstairs is red and gold.
    I just love Christmas time because it brings people together to bond and enjoy that time. It would be amazing to win this giveaway to help with my aspiring MUA career, but nonetheless, I’m glad you, a beautifully pure person, could take a look at my family’s life around Christmas and maybe share some joy. Merry Christmas and thank you!

  15. First of all i want to thank you for this oportunity 😩❣️ Everything is so nice! My favorite to do is to be with my family to enjoy every moment with them. I really enjoy Christamas we usually have karaoke even thought we are not the beat singers lol.


  16. My favorite thing about the holidays is the warm comforting feeling I get from being around my family and friends. It’s really important for me to have quality time with my loved ones because I’m 12/22/14 my mom passed away from breast cancer at the age of 49. This was devastating not only to my daughter and I but my whole family, my mom was always the one to bring us all together for Christmas. This was her favorite holiday and she was always so giving and kind. I really miss her and that’s why as the anniversary of her death nears, I know I have my family and friends to remind me of what the holidays are all about…love.


  17. My favorite thing about the holidays is getting together with family who lives too far away to visit regularly. I love cooking with my mom and all of my aunt’s on Christmas morning, and watching the fireworks with my cousins on New Years Eve.
