Ink tattoos are a major commitment, but if you fancy a less permanent type of festive body art, this new beauty trend might just be what you’ve been waiting for.
Christmas is the time for cringeworthy jumpers, Christmas trees with bright lights, sequins and glitter and, now, seasonal temporary tattoos. That’s right — this year jewellery brand Mr. Kate has created a line called BeautyMarks, which is at the top of our beauty wish list.
The temporary tattoos (which you can wear on your wrists, hands, forearms, basically anywhere), are all hand-drawn by the designer and feature ethereal designs as well as snowflakes — making them perfect for Christmas.
The tattoos last for two to four days and can easily be removed with body oil, the website states. But the best part is that the designs are completely cruelty-free and are not tested on animals, because really, beauty should never come with a cost to our furry friends.
Temporary tattoos have definitely enjoyed their time in the spotlight this year, with Rihanna debuting her new line of gold temporary tattoos in collaboration with JacquieAiche.com, and the runways being filled with temporary tattoos (including Kendall Jenner for Tommy Hilfiger during New York Fashion Week). They’re a lot easier to get than detailed henna pieces, and most likely cheaper. The Mr. Kate BeautyMarks “The New Makeup” White set will only set you back around £8.
